All assays were done by Techni-Lab S.G.B. Abitibi inc., an approved laboratory.

Holes E10-07, E10-08, E10-09 and E10-14 shows good values at depth below the 7th level. Holes E10-10, E10-11, E10-13, E10-16 and E10-18 are infill holes in the western part of the mine. Hole E10-15 indicates an extension of the mineralized zone beyond the western limit of the mine. Additional holes have been drilled at the eastern part of the mine to extend the mineralized zone to the east. Results will be reported when all the assays are received.

In the past (1944-1964), the Elder mine produced 350,000 ounces of gold.

In July 2009, a revision of the resources for the Elder property was completed by an independent qualified person, Mr. Jean-Pierre Bérubé, P. Eng., consultant from Trois-Rivières, Quebec, Canada. This revision was made according to NI 43-101 Standards.
