It is a great credit to the Conrad team and Empyrean’s participation has been made possible through the efforts of our Mr. Frank Brophy. We have a very aggressive and potentially transformational programme over the next 6 months and our first project achieving this level of success has exceeded both ours and Conrad’s expectations. We look forward to exciting months ahead as we continue to unlock value for our shareholders”.
