The drilling will follow up wide mineralized sections (such as DDH-27, which intersected 97.6 meters of 158.83 g/t silver and 0.49 g/t gold) encountered in the last drilling program. Infill drilling will be carried out in certain sections of the deposit, where previous drill holes were too short to intersect all of the mineralized zones.

A detailed survey of the project, using satellite imagery and on-site control stations, will be carried out over the next few months, which will assist further drill program planning as well as helping to identify potential pit and tailings dump locations prior to in-house pre-production planning.


The drill core sampling program includes onsite supervision of sampling by Stew Fumerton P.Geo, 10% blanks and certified standard reference samples. The drill core is sawed in half, with one half sent for fire assay, and the other half stored in Stroud's secure facility. The samples are subjected to full sample preparation, followed by a 30g fire assay with a gravimetric finish.
