No, the STAMP program can be instituted on any scale of operations.
Yes, Haber can make money from the STAMP Program. Haber pays the miners more for their gold concentrate than what they can make by using mercury. This is feasible because of the low extraction efficiencies the small scale miners normally achieve (between 33% to 70% range). Since HGP can deliver efficiencies in the high 90% range (Ghanaian alluvial material yielded a 99% efficiency), the Company is able to make a profit on the difference in efficiencies.
Haber will enter into joint venture with private investors, small scale miners, or large scale commercial operations that are using mercury.
The STAMP program has been extremely well received at all presentations.
Yes, we are strongly encouraged that the world is finally coming to recognize the concurrence of rising gold prices and the global concern for the environmental damage and toll on human health.
