Drill Hole SDH-11 has intersected a significant width of mineralization. The interval of 77.3 to 271.4 metres assayed 0.43% copper, 0.69 g/t gold and 17.1g/t silver over 194.1 metres. The mineralization continued to the bottom of the hole, for a total intersection of 322.7 metres grading 0.27% copper, 0.36 g/t gold and 9.59 g/t silver. Chalcopyrite is the main copper sulphide over the entire length of the hole.
