About Urumalqui:

Urumalqui is an advanced silver-gold project located approximately 70 kilometres by road east of the port city of Trujillo, Perú.  Gitennes acquired Urumalqui in 2003 in a joint venture and in June 2005 the joint venture was terminated and Gitennes assumed 100% control of the Project.  Exploration activities between 2003 and 2008 included three core drilling campaigns totalling 47 holes.  In 2010 the project was optioned to AndeanGold Ltd whom has completed two diamond drilling campaigns (44 holes totalling 7,124 metres).  In November 2011 an Initial Resources Estimate for the Urumalqui Vein was prepared by MQes, Inc.  The technical report supporting the estimate is available under both AndeanGold and Gitennes' company profiles at
