expected to return to capacity over the next seven to ten days. This accident
will affect overall production for the Cozamin Mine, but the safety of
Capstone's workers comes first. Additional guidance will be provided once
production resumes.

tragic accident is a terrible shock to everyone and we extend our heartfelt
sympathy to the family of our employee. In order to ensure that such an
