The Company also expects to provide an updated preliminary economic assessment on the Wellgreen project in calendar Q1 2014 that will build on the 2012 PEA by evaluating the potential of further optimization of PGM and base metal recoveries, higher concentrate grades and developing a better understanding of the economic contribution of the rare PGMs. Our engineering activities will optimize surface infrastructure, determine if pre-production capital can be decreased and/or deferred and look to enhance cash flows by decreased operating costs.
At our Shakespeare project, we will continue our evaluation of potential cost savings opportunities to assess restarting mining operations there. This work will include discussions and negotiations with contract mining companies, trucking firms and milling operations in the Sudbury area.
With the scarcity of large PGM projects outside of southern Africa and Russia we believe that the scale of Prophecy Platinum's projected North American PGM production will become of interest to potential investors in the sector. Our business strategy will be to demonstrate the full potential of the Wellgreen project and to de-risk the project through the next steps of engineering toward feasibility, which should support higher valuations in the market and expand our investor base. We look forward to reporting on the exciting developments ahead for the Company and its projects as we remain focused on delivering increased shareholder value.
