Galloway Project

As mentioned in Vantex's last press release dated March 14, 2012, the company expects to start drilling in the coming days. The slight delay was caused by the early thaw which required special equipment to transport drilling equipment. The first drill hole will be about 1200 meters and located within the area called the Golden Triangle. It is possible that from the same drill hole a wedge will be placed at 350 metres to provide an additional section.

Cookie Monster

The management of the company is also preparing a drilling program on the Cookie Monster property, located in the Monster Lake area of Chibougamau, Quebec. This project will be a joint project with Amseco Exploration.The Monster Lake area is known for its numerous gold deposits, namely the Joe Mann, Chevrier (8,000,000 tonnes at 2.28 g/t Au) and Philibert deposits.
