The program was carried out under the supervision of Chris J. Sampson, P. Eng., a qualified person under NI 43-101.

Sample lengths of the NQ drill core were diamond sawed into halves by mine staff and shipped to Inspectorate Labs in Durango, Mexico, for preparation into pulps and rejects. Pulps were analyzed at Inspectorate Labs in Sparks, Nevada.

Gold and silver were analyzed by fire assay using Aqua Regia Leach and AA finish. Other elements are reported from a 29 element I.C.P. package.
