ADDITIONAL COMMENTS

We are asking an LBA car for a month because the activities are concentrated on that period. We need as much support as possible to set up the entire basic infrastructure for this project before July 2005, when the experimental fire will be set. In addition, we have begun the process of getting a car in Santarem because we have transport technicians as well as equipment to Mato Grosso.
