Martha - Ongoing activity at the Martha Project is being undertaken without established mineral resources or reserves and the Corporation has not established the economic viability of the operations on the Martha Project. As a result, there is increased uncertainty and economic risk of failure associated with these activities.  Hunt filed an updated NI 43-101 Technical Report (“Technical Report”) for the Martha Project, dated October 12, 2018 titled “Martha Silver and Gold Project, Santa Cruz, Argentina”, which is currently available on SEDAR and on the Corporation’s website at:
