TBD Q2-2024 Financials

As outlined in the MD&A, this quarter was another very challenging quarter for Rogue Stone operations and Rogue has now suspended quarry operations for the winter season given low seasonal demand during the period.

As has been noted before (see Rogue disclosure on SEDAR+, including the News Release dated April 29, 2022)- Rogue has continued to feel the impact of macro inflation, with higher fuel and relative labour costs. Rogue believes that inflation has a compounding impact on labour productivity, with the team easily distracted by increasing cost pressure in all parts of their lives.
