The above are representative of results achieved to date from a systematic re-analysis program being conducted on the 55 holes previously drilled for which pulp material is available. Another 40 holes previously drilled have no pulp material available for re-analysis. The re-analysis results are comparable to the previous Asarco results. These results are being used in a preliminary assessment study being prepared by Pincock, Allen and Holt ("PAH"). The PAH study will also include a National Instrument - 43101 compliant silver resource on the Hardshell property, which will for the first time quantify an
additional resource of zinc, manganese and lead.
