Visible gold occurs in 5 of the holes.

Assays are pending on 555 samples that were submitted for gold assay and representing 525 m of mineralized core from the 9 holes. Initial assay results are expected on or about 11 January 2011. These holes are testing the strike extent up to 230 m from bonanza grade intercepts in hole RS10-16 previously drilled in June 2010.

The Company expects to complete the current 2000 m contract program in the next few weeks and plans to extend the program through the winter months of 2011.
