A second Terracad crew will also grid and procure approximately 530+ geochemical soil samples from Geldenhoof's magnetically anomalous regions and surrounding areas.

Terracad has also initiated the permitting process for both geophysical IP surveys and a future drill programs to test for gold mineralization at depth.
