Once these surveys are completed, the Company will file an amendment to its Plan of Operations with the Ministry of Mines to update the mining permit, which will then also include the newly acquired claims. This survey will serve a dual purpose, as it will then allow the Company to also file an application with the Ministry to convert its claims to a mining lease, as the principal element of a lease application is the submission of a formal survey to precisely delineate all claim boundaries. The advantage of conversion from a group of claims to a formal lease is to eliminate any statutory limitations to the amount of material North Bay can mine and process annually. Under BC mining regulations governing the current permit, placer mining claims are limited to the processing of up to 20,000 cubic meters per year per cell claim. Upon conversion of the claims to a lease, there is no longer any statutory restriction or annual limitation as to the amount of material the Company can mine and process. Accordingly, the Company believes it is beneficial to begin the survey work now rather than deferring it to a future date.
