Jason Gigliotti, President of Habanero stated, "We are looking forward to starting work on this prospect, as well as on our other Quebec and Yukon Prospects shortly. We are about to enter the main season of exploration for Habanero where we will be active on multiple prospects. Yesterday we announced, what management felt, were encouraging sample results from our 100% Grand Vallée 7,400 hectares North Aluminous Clay Prospect which lies adjacent to Orbite Alumina Inc's (Orbite) 6,441 ha Grand-Vallée Property. Grades were as high at 22.99 % Al2O3 (alumina) with multiple samples grading over 18% Al2O3. Management is optimistic about what this prospect may mean to the short and long term growth of Habanero, considering we have only investigated one third of the property to date. Management is looking forward to very active 2012 season as we fully evaluate the prospect for aluminous clay and rare earth potential."
