Fourth Drill to be Added to Pickle Crow Exploration Program

Building on strongly positive recent drilling results, the board of directors has authorized the addition of a fourth drill to the Pickle Crow exploration program. The fourth drill, a Major 50 rig capable of drilling to depths of 2,500 metres from surface, will be used to drill below Shaft 3. Historical records suggest multiple high grade veins remain in place below Shaft 3, hosted in the same porphyry body in which the rich No. 19 vein was recently discovered. At present, follow-up drilling of the No. 19 vein discovery is continuing with a single shallow-intermediate capable rig. A second shallow-intermediate capable rig is drilling the new No. 20 vein discovery. The third rig onsite, another Major 50, is presently drilling a deep mother hole and wedges below Shaft 1.
