For the nine months ended Sept. 30, 2019 we have produced 128,125 GEOs, or 74% of our revised guidance midpoint of 172,500 GEOs. Our Gold Bar Mine continued to improve during the third quarter, achieving several key performance benchmarks for ore production, crushing throughput, and gold production. Gold Bar produced almost 5,000 GEOs in September, which is in line with our plan and approaching the designed capacity of the process plant. The San José and El Gallo mines performed well, meeting their production targets. At our Black Fox Mine, underground mining operations continued to be challenging, however high-grade exploration results at both the Black Fox and Stock properties are providing reason for excitement for the future.
