A complete listing of all interim drill hole results are summarized in the table below - holes with an asterisk indicated they were not included in the recently announced October 2009 resource update. Most of the holes are step-out holes designed to determine the extent of the mineralized zones at Haile. The reported interval thickness is the down hole thickness and may not be the true thickness, although the drill holes generally deflect perpendicular to the rock fabric and the reported thickness should be close to the true thickness.
