Abcourt starts the processing with a 5,000-tonne bulk sample from the Pershing-Manitou deposit. This sample was obtained from the Pershing-Manitou deposit's mineral resources. An independent metallurgical firm will supervise the milling campaign and match the milled grades with the grades of the mined mineral resources during the processing campaign for the 5,000 tons of Pershing-Manitou.

Abcourt intends to process 600 to 800 tons per week at first, progressively increasing the weekly volume. Following that, Abcourt will treat 400 tons of ore remaining in the Elder mine’s surface silo to clean and evacuate possibly high-grade material from the Pershing-Manitou deposit from the grinding circuit.
