"We are pleased that the drilling continues to intercept significant widths of mineralization," said President Andrew Gourlay. "Of particular interest are Holes SDH-41 and SDH-42, which were drilled in a northeast direction into the Skarn Zone and returned interesting zinc values."

Hole SDH-41 returned 128m grading 0.50% zinc. Earlier sampling and drilling found areas of high grade zinc in the Skarn Zone. The distribution of high-grade within the Skarn Zone is not well understood and further drilling is required to define the areas of zinc mineralization.

Broad zones of copper-gold mineralization have now been intersected over distances of at least 700 metres in a southwest - northeast direction, and over 600 metres in a northwest - southeast direction. The limits of the mineralization have not yet been defined and the mineralization remains open to depth.
