Although this table shows the new discovery, a comprehensive review of all five rounds of assays will be published on our website, blog, and in pdf format below. These samples lend support to management's optimistic expectations regarding the site and provide significant insight into the concentrations of gold reserves on the property, adding support to management's theory the main source of gold rests in the northern sector of the property.

President John Marconette stated, "We have been better able to define the objectives due to discovering this higher concentration. We can now focus our operational plan and permits on this area of our property. These assays will increase the average grade throughout this property and help shape the Georgia Reserve Report management is preparing for release. Additionally he remarked, "We are eager to move forward with operations to more accurately determine the extent of gold reserves on the property."
