USE OF PROCEEDS

Approximately $1.5 million will be used to commence collection of data to advance the Tahuehueto Project into pre-feasibility studies. Work will consist of one or more of the following initiatives:

  • geotechnical slope stability drilling at the Cinco de Mayo zone in order to prove stability of the cliff face above the zone so that the zone may be brought into the open-pit mining plan
  • core drilling within the resource zones as required in order to increase confidence of the inferred resource into measured and indicated resources as required for pre-feasibility and feasibility studies.
  • collection of environmental data necessary for pre-feasibility and feasibility studies for future mine planning

Approximately $400,000 will be used to fund a preliminary exploration program on the Jocuixtita Project. This program would include:

  • initial surface work of geological mapping, trenching and possibly geophysics
  • a diamond drilling program in order to test the principal zone(s) on the Project strongly mineralized in silver, lead and zinc.

Approximately $1.1 million will be used for general and administrative corporate purposes including, a marketing program within North America and Europe, the whole or partial repayment of certain convertible loans (loans announced on July 26, 2010), and ongoing working capital.
