Anglo Swiss Resources is developing the Company's 100% owned Kenville Gold Mine property located near the City of Nelson, in south-eastern British Columbia. It is also earning a majority interest in the 160 square kilometer Nelson Mining Camp, south of the Kenville property. The Nelson Mining Camp is the host to numerous, historical producing gold, silver and copper mines, surface adits and old workings. Exploration programs are underway throughout the Camp area with the focus on building a larger gold resource within the Kenville Gold Mine property and beyond to the south.

Anglo Swiss recently contracted for 5,000 metres of surface drilling on the property. To manage the mine development, the company recently hired Lloyd Penner, who has 25 year's experience, much of it dealing with high grade vein properties like the Kenville.

The original mine on this property goes back to the 1880's. Prior to 1954, the property yielded more than 2 million grams of gold and 861,000 grams of silver from high grade veins, making it the 26(th) largest gold producer in BC history.
