Thank you Siren. Welcome everyone joining us today to discuss our results for the third quarter of 2019. Revenue in the quarter was $352 million primarily reflecting increased gold production and higher gold and silver prices. Revenue estimated at$17.8 million was not realized in Q3 due to timing of shipments resulting in inventory build. We expect the revenue associated with that metal inventory will be realized during Q4. Due to changes in market conditions and effective in Q3 2019 the Bell Creek and Timmins West mines are no longer classified as held for sale. As a result the Timmins assets and liabilities are no longer presented separately on the company's September 30 2019 balance sheet. And the net income generated by payments for the three months and nine months are reflected on the company's income statement in the normal course.

Net income in Q3 was $37.7 million or $0.18 per share. Net income included investment income of $36.1 million which was offset by $29.1 million of tax expense and a $15.6 million non-cash adjustment related to the reclassification of Timmins. Adjusted earnings were $74.2 million or $0.35 per share which is higher than GAAP earnings due to the adjustments related to the reclassification of Timmins and Indecipherable adjustment related to the Dolores Heap inventory and unrealized foreign exchange losses.
