The junior added it is now very confident that the application for the 'Permit to Develop' the Kochang mine will soon be granted.
Bluebird is changing its year-end to end December to align its results with the South Korean businesses that hold the permits.
In September, Bluebird reported the Koreans had signalled their intention to award the permit for Gubong, where Bluebird sees the potential for a resource of greater than one million oz of gold.
The plan is to get into profitable mining at about 30,000oz per year initially and see what the full potential might be as operations go deeper.
Bluebird estimates the indicated and inferred resource at Kochang at 117,000oz.
