To date, the 71 holes drilled have intersected the structure containing the mineralized zones. The continuity of the structure and the gold zones contained herein are an important feature of the mineralization in the Harker area.

The success has prompted the management of the Company to continue the diamond drilling program. One diamond drill is actively drilling on the property to prove up the gold zone at depth. Holes 66 and 71 intercepted significant albite alteration. The albite alteration is associated with the Harker-Holloway and Holt McDermot Mines. The results from holes 72 to 78 are pending.
