depth of overburden and sample the bedrock in the target area. These results
will allow for the selection of holes to be re-entered for deepening by
diamond drilling. Additional geological and alteration mapping as well as
prospecting will be carried out over selected portions of the Project area.
Select areas identified by this work will be surveyed with IP/resistivity.
