“We don’t have to share on the operating costs activities or operating activities and coast associated with the capital. One of the things’ that has pressured miners over the last few years is that capital costs that have gone over budget, operating costs and margins have squeezed, and we just simply don’t have that in our element of business” said Mr. Jensen.
