The 2014 exploration program will focus on advancing the Los Andes and San Francisco properties with activities beginning in January. Plans are underway to complete a geophysical survey over the targets followed by a drilling program to test two gold targets not previously drilled during the 2012 program. Access agreement completion and road construction are targeted to begin in January 2014. The geophysical surveys and subsequent drilling program will begin as soon as scheduling can be finalized. Geophysical survey results in conjunction with geochemical results, structural and alteration mapping will further identify the drilling locations. A dedicated budget of approximately C$1.5 million will be set aside from the proceeds to complete the exploration program.
Following the closing of the transaction with Polygon, Anthony Hawkshaw submitted his resignation as a Director of the Company. We want to thank Tony for his services and wish him the best with his other commitments.
