    The Monterde project is located in the prolific Sierra Madre gold-silver
belt of western Mexico and includes the Carmen deposit, which has been
extensively drilled by Kimber Resources and is currently undergoing detailed
geologic modelling in order to evaluate the potential for a combined open pit
and underground mining operation based on current resources. In addition to
the Carmen deposit, Kimber owns approximately 39,000 hectares of the
prospective Sierra Madre precious metals belt where initial reconnaissance
exploration carried out in 2007 has identified a number of new targets that
