focusing primarily on advancing its 100%-controlled Pinguino project,
located in Santa Cruz province. An early 2011 drill program of
approximately 17,000 meters is underway at Pinguino, where Argentex

The new discoveries being drill tested include the Tranquilo and Luna

gold and 6.4 meters of 486.6 g/t silver and 1.91 g/t gold. More than 51
individual veins have so far been discovered at Pinguino, with a
combined strike length in excess of 75 line-kilometers.

Patagonia region, within the Deseado Massif of Santa Cruz province.
