As of December 31, 2012, the Company has completed its field exploration program of its wholly owned Bouchard Base Metals Property. The program consisted of early-stage geological mapping and sampling, a 850 line-kilometers detailed and high resolution airborne Magnetic and Time-Domain Electromagnetic survey, prospecting of known and new base metals showings, outcrop stripping and trenching, and 2,000 meters of diamond drilling on the most prospective occurrences on the north part to test continuity, grade and size potential.
