*The results from FA-11-80, 83, 86 and FA-12-91AB returned no significant values.
The mineralized intervals represent between 75 and 100% of the true thickness.

Several assay results are still pending.


In the months of February and March, drilling activities were mainly localized on the Mc Donald Showing, located around 400 meters east of the Fayolle Deposit. The objective is to verify if the gold mineralization in both areas can be connected. The drilling has continued to test the extensions of the Fayolle Deposit and fill some lack of information within the mineralized structure in order to complete an initial resource calculation under the partnership. The resource calculation should be available in 2012.


All drill cores are oriented using CorientR tool in order to measure their geological structures. Deviation testing is performed with a FLEXIT device. Cores are sawn in half, with one part being kept as a control and the other part being analyzed. Analyses are performed by standard fire assay with atomic absorption finish. Certified reference materials, field duplicates and blanks are inserted into the sample sequence for quality control purposes. Primary assaying is performed by ALS Minerals Laboratory in Val-d'Or.


The Company holds 19,918,157 shares outstanding, carries no debt, maintains a strong financial position, is awaiting a new resource calculation on the Fayolle Deposit and owns the following projects:
