The additional 20% working interest has been purchased by granting an
industry standard one percent (1%) Net Smelter Return ("NSR") to the
Surface exploration of the Buena Vista project is expected to get
underway by the end of February, 2012.
Boxxer's President and CEO, Elmer B. Stewart, explained; "Now that
Boxxer owns a 100% working interest in the Buena Vista copper-gold
project, our exploration plans for 2012 can commence. The 2012
exploration program includes assessing the iron potential of the
project based on the iron deposits that were exploited in this area in
the mid-1940's. The primary focus of the 2012 program will be to
understand the dimensions, continuity and grade of the 53 zones of
copper mineralization located on the property. The data collected to
date strongly supports an iron-oxide-copper-gold style of
mineralization for this property".
The exploration of the Buena Vista property is expected to get underway
in mid to late February, 2012. The work will focus on understanding
the relationship between the strong iron carbonate alteration, the 53
zones of copper mineralization exposed on surface and the Titan-24
