Overall, the company said it does not expect to reach its sales goal of 200,000 tons in 2019 and now estimates total sales of 110,000 tons, good for C$5.3 million in revenue. 

In 2020, the company revised its sales target to C$10.6 million. In total, Verde is fully committed to producing 149,800 tons per year and has applications pending for an additional 333,000 tons per year.

Verde also issued an update on its recent developments, which included being granted an environmental license in August for a new plant, which it plans to build adjacent to one of its mining pits. The new plant is ultimately expected to produce 890,000 tons of product per year. 

In July, the company received mining permits for two other pits.
