Supatcha Resources (OTC Bulletin Board: SAEI.OB) Signs Definitive Agreement and Acquires Maiskoe Gold Mine

Supatcha Resources (OTC Bulletin Board: SAEI.OB)  Signs Definitive Agreement and Acquires Maiskoe Gold Mine




DENVER, Sept. 29 /(http://www.investorideas.com/ gold and mining stocks blog )  -- Supatcha Resources Inc. (OTC Bulletin Board: SAEI.OB) ("Supatcha" or the "Company") announces today it has signed a definitive agreement to acquire a 98% interest in the Maiskoe Gold licenses in Odessa Oblast, Savaransky District, Southern Ukraine.

Supatcha will pay the owners of the property a total of US$3,500,000 and will own 98% of the mine (including all of the capital equipment) and the mineral concessions. Supatcha has also agreed to invest a further US$2,800,000 in expanding the current operation over the next year. Prior to the acquisition, the Company already had several preliminary funding commitments based on the strong merits and history of the concessions.



The property was explored previously by a number of companies and previous drilling indicated geology finds that are favorable for a potential large Gold deposit. The initial drilling done in 1999 indicated gold mineralization in a number of drill holes. Further in 2001, a magnetic/electromagnetic geophysical airborne survey was also conducted over the property and identified several major mineralization areas of interest. Supatcha management has carefully procured significant relationships in the property area, over the last several years, to bring the necessary parties together to successfully continue the development of this high potential gold property and facility. Additionally, the property development plan completed on the Maiskoe as part of the due diligence process has recommended that a drill program for a total of 2000 meters be undertaken. Supatcha has committed to complete the recommended drill program and is currently in discussions to confirm equipment mobilization and drilling dates.

Levon (TSX VENTURE:LVN)(BERLIN:LO9)(FRANKFURT:LO9) Begins $14M, 59,000 Metre Phase 3 Drill Program at Cordero, Chihuahua, Mexico

Levon (TSX VENTURE:LVN)(BERLIN:LO9)(FRANKFURT:LO9) Begins $14M, 59,000 Metre Phase 3 Drill Program at Cordero, Chihuahua, Mexico


VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(http://www.investorideas.com/ gold and mining stocks blog )  - Sept. 30, 2010) - Levon Resource Ltd. ("Levon") (TSX VENTURE:LVN)(BERLIN:LO9)(FRANKFURT:LO9) is pleased to announce the start of Phase 3 drilling and exploration at the Cordero project located 35 km northeast of the town of Hildalgo Del Parral, Chihuahua, Mexico. Phase 3 addresses the expansion and exploration potential for bulk tonnage Ag, Au, Zn, Pb deposits in the Cordero Porphyry Belt covered by the property. Six mineralized intrusive centers are aligned northeast in the Belt, which has a strike length of 15 km and widths of from 3 to 5 km. Phase 1 drilling in 2009 yielded discovery holes in the Pozo de Plata Diatreme and Cordero Porphyry Target. Phase 2 offset grid drilling in 2010 expanded the discovery zones which remain open in all directions and at depth (news release of September 21, 2010).
Phase 3 drilling is designed to expand the discoveries and provide initial tests of six, outlying mine-scale targets identified in Phase 2. Mapping, sampling and geophysics will be aimed at identifying additional outlying, mine-scale targets within the Belt. Phase 3 is a $14M planned program, which includes 59,000 metres of core drilling.
Goals of the Phase 3 program are:
  1. Continued definition and delineation drilling of the Pozo de Plata Diatreme and the Cordero Porphyry discoveries;
  2. Completion of initial metallurgical testing, resource estimates and preliminary engineering studies on the Pozo de Plata Diatreme and Cordero Porphyry mineralization;
  3. Initiate the Cordero property engineering infrastructure and base line studies;
  4. Drill test the six outlying, mine-scale targets defined by Phase 2 exploration. Define and test any diatreme type targets the newly recognized Molina de Viento Caldera Diatreme Complex at the southwest end of the belt.
Core drilling is scheduled to begin on October 1, 2010 with two drills that are currently on site. A third drill is scheduled to begin by the end of October. HD Drilling, Mazatlan, Mexico has been selected as the drill contractor based on their past Cordero work. Drill hole categories include: 1) Offset definition (56 holes, 32,700 metres) 2) Deposit delineation (35 holes, 17,400 metres) and 3) Outlying exploration drill holes (16 holes, 8,800 metres).
Six Mine Scale Drill Targets
Six mine-scale drill targets have been defined on the basis of correlative geologic, soil and rock chip sample results, airborne magnetics, eletromagnetics, radiometrics and gravity anomalies. The targets are analogous with the Pozo de Plata diatreme zone, the Cordero Porphyry zone or high grade replacement deposits mined in the past in the Cordero district. The targets are within the western Pozo de Plata diatreme, the Dos Mil Diez diatreme, extensions of the Cordero Porphyry zone, and in the La Ceniza stock (target area maps and summaries are posted on the Levon website www.levon.com). Phase 3 drill holes will provide initial tests of each target.
Outlying Areas
The diatremes in the Molino de Viento Caldera Diatreme Complex were recognized in March, 2010 and the area has yet to be completely traversed. Molino de Viento is located 7 km southwest of the Dos Mil Diez Diatreme Complex and covers a circular area 5 km in diameter. Molino de Viento requires complete mapping, sampling and additional follow up geophysical surveys (3D IP and gravity) to define any drill targets. This Phase 3 field work is scheduled to start in mid-October, 2010.
"We are pleased with the current exploration and drill results at Cordero. We believe we are on track in the discovery of a major new mining district in Mexico. We have always tried to match the rate of the Cordero program with exploration results and accelerate the project accordingly. Phase 3 is aimed at defining quality Ag, Au, Zn, Pb bulk tonnage resources and resolving the Cordero upside discovery potential as soon as possible," comments Ron Tremblay, President and CEO, Levon Resources Ltd.
Corporate
Levon and Valley High Ventures, Ltd. have signed the definitive Cordero Joint Venture Agreement as of April 01, 2010 with the terms of the original letter of intent signed February 11, 2009.
Levon has set up a wholly owned Mexican subsidiary, Administración de Proyectos Levon en México, S.A. de C.V. (Levon en Mexico) to conduct Cordero and other exploration activities in Mexico. Levon en Mexico is headquartered in Durango, Mexico with its main Cordero Project field office in the historical mining town of Hildalgo Del Parral.
The Cordero project is a joint venture between Levon Resources, Ltd (51% owner and operator) and Valley High Resources, Ltd (49% contributing interest) to explore for bulk tonnage Ag, Au, Zn, Pb deposits in the historical Cordero Mining District.
Levon is a junior gold and precious metals exploration company exploring the Cordero silver, gold, zinc and lead project near Hidalgo Del Parral, Chihuahua, Mexico. The Norma Sass and Ruf claims located near the Pipeline gold deposit, which is being mined and explored by Barrick Gold Corporation in the heart of the Cortez Gold Trend in Lander County, Nevada, USA. The Company also holds key land positions at Congress, BRX, and Wayside in the productive Bralorne Gold camp of British Columbia, Canada.

Mining Stocks News; Stronghold (TSX VENTURE:Z) Announces Strategic Transaction With IAMGOLD on Eagle Mountain Gold Property in Guyana

Mining Stocks News; Stronghold (TSX VENTURE:Z) Announces Strategic Transaction With IAMGOLD on Eagle Mountain Gold Property in Guyana


VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(http://www.investorideas.com/ mining and gold stocks blog  - Sept. 30, 2010) - STRONGHOLD METALS INC. ("Stronghold" or the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:Z) Stronghold is pleased to announce that it has entered into a definitive Earn-In and Joint Venture Agreement (the "Agreement") dated September 29, 2010 with a subsidiary of IAMGOLD Corporation ("IAMGOLD"), under which the Company has been granted the right to acquire in stages up to 50% in the Eagle Mountain Gold Property, located in Guyana, South America through the completion of exploration work on the property. Additionally, the Company has the option to acquire the remaining 50% of the property from IAMGOLD under certain instances.


The Eagle Mountain property is owned by Omai Gold Mines Ltd. ("OGML"), a 95% owned subsidiary of IAMGOLD with the Republic of Guyana ("Guyana") holding the remaining 5%. As part of the transaction, the parties will set up a single purpose entity to hold the Eagle Mountain Gold Property, subject to the approval of Guyanese governmental authorities.


The Eagle Mountain Gold Project ("Eagle Mountain" or the "Property") is an advanced stage exploration project on track to produce a preliminary economic assessment report or scoping study.
In October 2009, an internal technical report by IAMGOLD produced an in-house estimate of total Inferred Mineral Resources of 22.1Mt @ 1.11 g/t, containing 787,800 ounces of gold (using a 0.3 g/t Au cut-off grade), or 18Mt @ 1.27 g/t, containing 733,500 ounces of gold (using a 0.5 g/t Au cut-off grade). More than 250,000 ounces of contained Au in this inferred mineral resource is hosted by oxide material (saprolite).
Based on the review of IAMGOLD's internal technical report, Stronghold treats the resource as a "Current" resource under NI43-101 disclosure requirements, and intends to immediately commission an independent NI43-101 compliant technical report and file same within 45 days. Should there be any changes to the defined resource, Stronghold will file updated disclosure as required.
The following table summarizes the reported Mineral Resource Estimate from the in-house IAMGOLD technical report.

Eagle Mountain covers an area of approximately 5050 Ha (12,480 acres) in central Guyana, 200km southwest of the capital Georgetown and 45 kilometres from the historic Omai Gold Mine, which was in production from 1993 to 2005.
Access to the property is gained by road from Georgetown in five to six hours and by air in forty-five minutes, landing at the Mahdia airstrip four kilometers to the north of the property. Alluvial gold has been exploited in the area of Eagle Mountain since 1884.
Total exploration expenditures to date on Eagle Mountain are approximately US$ 6.58 million. The Eagle Mountain area occurs within Palaeoproterozoic greenstones of the Guiana Shield. A composite granodiorite pluton intrudes the greenstone volcanic rocks and hosts most of the known gold mineralisation on the Property. Gold mineralisation starts from near surface as disseminated and fracture controlled mineralisation in granite forming multiple gently dipping zones.
At least 6 mineralised zones have been recognised to date, but only 3 zones have been tested in any detail. Drilling, surface auger sampling, channel sampling of trenches and historical adits helped identify the various mineralised zones, yet only diamond drill data was used in the calculation of the inferred mineral resource by IAMGOLD.
The reported resource covers an area of 1.5 km x 2 km (300 hectares) inside a property 5,050 hectares in size, thus there exists tremendous upside potential for new discoveries and resource expansion.
Commercial Agreement Terms
Stronghold may earn increasing interests in the Property based on a combination of cash payments, share issuances and work expenditures more particularly described below:

Table 1: Summary of earn-in and JV terms (all money figures in US$ Dollars).
Stronghold has a firm commitment to pay US $250,000, issue 2,000,000 common shares in the capital of Stronghold to OGML and incur exploration expenditures ("Expenditures") of not less than US$400,000 on the Eagle Mountain Gold Property by December 31, 2010.
Furthermore Stronghold has agreed to pay OGML US$250,000 on the earlier of: (i) December 1, 2010; and (ii) 5 days from the date on which Guyana grants OGML an extension notice (the "Extension Notice") for the concessions that cover the Property for the period October 2010 to October 2011.
Provided the Extension Notice has been granted, Stronghold shall fund an additional US $1,100,000 of Expenditures (firm commitment), issue an additional 2,000,000 common shares and pay an additional US$1,000,000 to OGML by October 31, 2011.
Once Stronghold has satisfied the above requirements and therefore has funded an aggregate of US$1,500,000 of Expenditures, issued an aggregate of 4,000,000 common shares and paid US$1,500,000 to OGML it will have earned a 25% equity interest in the Property.
Stronghold then has the option to fund an additional US$2,000,000 (for a total of US$3,500,000) in Expenditures, issue an additional 2,000,000 common shares (for a total of 6,000,000 common shares) and pay an additional US$1,000,000 (for a total of US$2,500,000) to OGML (or as OGML may direct), all by October 31, 2012 to earn a 50% equity interest in the Property.
After earning a 50% interest in the Property, Stronghold has the right to acquire the remaining 50% interest within six months by paying OGML an additional US$1,000,000. OGML has 90 days from the date Stronghold earns a 50% interest to require Stronghold to acquire the remaining 50% interest in the Property for a payment of US$1,000,000.
Provided that Stronghold becomes the registered and beneficial owner of at least a 50% interest in the Property, upon the grant by Guyana of a mining or exploitation licence in relation to the Eagle Mountain, Stronghold will pay OGML an additional US$7,500,000.
Assuming all expenditures and milestones are made, IAMGOLD will become a significant shareholder of Stronghold.
Yannis Tsitos, President and CEO of Stronghold stated: "This transaction is the most significant milestone in Stronghold's history to date. Our stated corporate goal is to grow the Company through a combination of development of our high quality exploration properties in South America and the acquisition of advanced stage projects.
The Eagle Mountain Gold Property represents a rare opportunity to rapidly move an already advanced project to a feasibility study stage and therefore deliver tangible value to our shareholders. We will effectively build upon the strong foundation established by IAMGOLD in Guyana and intensify the exploration work program to expand and advance the current resource estimate and to establish whether the Eagle Mountain Gold Property can sustain a profitable independent mining operation. Based on our due diligence investigations and our internal analysis of data, we believe there is significant blue sky potential beyond the currently identified gold resource. Having IAMGOLD ultimately as a significant shareholder will be of tremendous benefit to the Company and Stronghold's management feels privileged to work with their team in this joint venture. In Stronghold, we hold an overarching desire to be part of a development, which will not only be valuable to the Company's shareholders, but can also make an important contribution to the development of Guyana and the wellbeing of the Guyanese people."
Paul Olmsted, Senior Vice President, Corporate Development, IAMGOLD Corporation, stated: "We are pleased to enter into a transaction with Stronghold as we believe their experience will provide significant benefits to both the Eagle Mountain project and the region. We look forward to working with the Company to move the project forward."
The Company will pay a finder's fee of up to 1.5 million shares in stages over the term of the Agreement, with the first tranche to consist of 500,000 common shares on receipt of TSX Venture Exchange acceptance.
The Agreement and the finder's fee are subject to the acceptance of the TSX Venture Exchange.
Stronghold Metals Inc. has not independently verified the technical data on the Eagle Mountain Gold Property. However, Stronghold believes the current resource provide an indication of the potential that exists on the property. Mike Byron, Vice President, Exploration for Stronghold, a Qualified Person under NI 43-101, has reviewed and approved the data disclosed in this news release.

(TSX VENTURE:FMM) News; Full Metal Identifies Multiple New Gold Anomalies, Extending White Gold District Trend from Yukon into Alaska

(TSX VENTURE:FMM)  News; Full Metal Identifies Multiple New Gold Anomalies, Extending White Gold District Trend from Yukon into Alaska


VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(http://www.investorideas.com/ gold and mining stocks blog )  - Sept. 30, 2010) - Full Metal Minerals Ltd. (TSX VENTURE:FMM) is pleased to announce that the Company has received encouraging surface sampling results from multiple gold targets at the Rolling Thunder Project. Full Metal has expanded the land package to 589 km2, covering 16 different target areas, and initiated a follow-up sampling and mapping program.


Full Metal's management and geologic team were shared with Underworld Resources, which made a significant discovery at the White Gold Project in the Yukon. Underworld was acquired by Kinross Gold in the spring of 2010. The technical team utilized this experience and understanding of geologic controls, geochemistry and exploration targeting methods which was successful at White Gold to stake these new claims. During the 2010 season, 428 rock and 1,536 soil samples have been collected to-date, as well as some initial mechanical trenching. Many assays are still pending.
Highlights of the recent exploration include the identification of extensive anomalous gold mineralization in soil samples from the Pika Property. Two separate 100 to 250 meter wide, northeastern trending gold in soil anomalies (>50 ppb Au) have been identified. Individual soil values range from trace to 1090 ppb Au, averaging 108 ppb Au. Strong silver values were also returned. The anomalies are 700 meters and 1,000 meters long separately, with the mineralizing system open for expansion to the north and east. Widespread silicification and high-potassium clay alteration suggest a high-sulphidation Au-Ag epithermal system at Pika. Sampling crews are currently expanding the soil grid at the property. Mineralization at Pika is strongly oxidized due to weathering, with local massive barite and gossan veins identified. Two subcrop samples of gossan assayed 0.30 g/t Au with 4,730 g/t Ag and 0.955 Au with 788 g/t Ag respectively.
A single reconnaissance line was completed a the McElfish prospect, where a single reconnaissance 'ridge and spur' soil line returned several anomalous samples, including an individual sampled that returned 7.16 g/t Au in soil. Follow-up mapping and sampling identified strongly silicified and gossanous altered rocks, with additional assays currently pending.
Reconnaissance work at the Willow property has identified a gold and silver bearing, silicified marble unit hosting gold and silver mineralization. Seven grab and chip samples that assayed over 1.0 g/t Au averaged 1.8 g/t Au and 28.0 g/t Ag, with samples up to 3.3 g/t Au and 98 g/t Ag. The majority of these samples, out of 118 rock occur within a 250 by 100 meter silicified and decalcified area of marble. Silicified marble units have been trace for over 3,000 meters. The target area is surrounded on all sides by active placer gold mines, and represents a sediment-hosted gold target.
Previously reported results (See FMM 2010 NR#10, June 29th 2010) include: the 20X prospect, grab samples from oxidized quartz veins returned 5.5 and 4.0 g/t Au, with anomalous molybdenum and other pathfinder elements similar to the White Gold Property. At the Tweeden prospect, a grab sample from a one meter wide quartz vein trending onto Full Metal claims returned 52.2 g/t Au. Secondary structures splaying off of main structure assayed 1-2 g/t Au on these sheeted structures.


The White Gold district in Alaska occurs within a mineral belt of Cretaceous age deposits, prospects, and placer gold mines trending from the Minto mine in the southwest, and includes porphyry copper and epigenetic gold deposits and prospects such as Freegold Mountain (Northern Freegold), Casino (Western Copper), White Gold (Kinross) and Coffee (Kaminak). This mineral belt strikes to the northeast from the Yukon into Alaska, and includes Full Metal's Rolling Thunder claims, the Fortymile placer district, and Full Metal's high-grade Zn-Ag-Pb-Cu carbonate replacement deposits (see News Release FMM 2010 – NR #5, June 3rd 2010). Over 30 companies are actively exploring along this trend in the Yukon, with an ongoing staking rush up to the Yukon-Alaska border. Full Metal Minerals is the only company that has been actively exploring the Alaska section of this belt during 2010.


Placer gold mining has been ongoing in the Fortymile district since the late 1800's, with over 550,000 ounces of placer gold produced (from Szumigala et al, Alaska DGGS Report 2000). The area is underlain by the same host rocks, a similar tectonic history and intrusive rocks to the White Gold District.
Full Metal and BHP completed an extensive reconnaissance program in the southern portion of the target area during 2008, exploring four porphyry targets. In 2009, Full Metal regained a 100% ownership of this program, after BHP completed extensive geochemical surveys and a large airborne magnetic survey. In addition to a proprietary geochemical data set owned by Full Metal from historic operators, the Company utilized this data in targeting several of the new claim groups.
Full Metal's 2010 exploration program at Rolling Thunder is managed by Robert McLeod, P.Geo, Vice-President Exploration for Full Metal Minerals and a Qualified Persons as defined by NI 43-101. Rock and soil samples have been collected by experienced geologists, placed in sealed bags and delivered by Company employees to ALS-Chemex Labs facility in Fairbanks, Alaska. A sample quality control/quality assurance program using standards and blanks has been implemented. Mr. McLeod prepared and approved the information contained in this release.
Full Metal is a generative exploration company with multiple precious and base metal projects in Alaska and the Yukon. Additional results will be announced shortly from three drilling programs completed during 2010, including 100%-owned Fortymile zinc-silver-lead Property, the Grizzly Butte and Pyramid copper-gold-molybdenum porphyry Properties.

Gold Stocks ; Manitou Gold (TSX VENTURE:MTU) Samples 495 g/t Gold at Canamerica; Drilling at Sherridon to Resume

Gold Stocks ; Manitou Gold  (TSX VENTURE:MTU) Samples 495 g/t Gold at Canamerica; Drilling at Sherridon to Resume


SUDBURY, ONTARIO--(http://www.investorideas.com/ gold and mining stocks blog )   - Sept. 30, 2010) - Manitou Gold Inc. (TSX VENTURE:MTU) today reports the receipt of grab sample results from historical gold occurrences located on the Canamerica Property, within the Upper Manitou Lake Area. The samples were collected during a recently completed first pass prospecting program on Canamerica claims situated along the northeastern projection of the Manitou Straits Deformation Zone. The claims cover a number of historical pits, shafts and occurrences which have received minimal prior exploration attention.
The Peak Lake occurrences are located 7 km northeast of the Big Master Mine, proximal to the northeast trending Manitou Straits Fault. This summer's prospecting program located and sampled a number of poorly documented shafts and pits. One vein that was sampled returned a number of high grade assay results ranging from trace to 495 g/t Au, with other samples returning 125 g/t Au and 88 g/t Au. Previous exploration reported in this area was limited to prospecting and widely spaced drilling. The showing is amenable to backhoe trenching and will be further evaluated during the fall exploration program.
A summary of grab samples from the Peak Lake are detailed in the following Table 1:

H18044422.7
H18044317.2
H18045614.5
H1804551.6
Note: Grab samples are, by nature, selective and are unlikely to represent average grades on the property.
The Little Master Shaft is located 3.2 km northeast of the Big Master Mine and is also within the Manitou
Straits Deformation Zone. The history and details of the Little Master operation is unknown as records were not preserved by prior operators. This summer's field work located the shaft and estimated the depth of it to be greater than 20 metres. The shaft was sunk on a quartz vein system. Manitou Gold traced this vein system on surface for 50 metres until it continued under overburden. Assay samples returned values ranging from 2.6 g/t to 169 g/t Au with a number of highly anomalous samples (see Table 2 below). The Little Master gold bearing vein is located along the flanks of a 600 metre long Induced Polarization ("IP") chargeability anomaly. This prospective target will be evaluated during the upcoming fall exploration program.
A summary of grab sample assay results from the Little Master areas is included in the following table:

A map showing the location of both the Peak Lake and Little Master occurrences can be found at the Company's web site at the following link: www.manitougold.com/properties.html
The Company will be commencing the next phase of diamond drilling on the Sherridon and Kenwest Projects within approximately 10 days. Drilling will begin at the Sherridon Project, where the recently completed first phase 10 hole drill program (1,308 m) tested a number of IP anomalies and surface gold showings. Visible gold was identified in a number of narrow shear zones intersected in the drilling. Assay results ranged between trace and 25.3 g/t Au over narrow intervals. Drilling will then proceed to the Kenwest project to follow up on the a significant drill intersection of 15.4 g/t Au over 6.5 metres in hole KW-10-13.
Manitou Gold also announces that it has retained Doug Kerr of CACS International Inc. to provide corporate communications services to the Company. The contract is for an initial 3 month term at the rate of $2,000 per month, which may be extended on a month to month basis, and also includes the grant of incentive stock options to purchase up to 50,000 shares in the capital of the Company at the price of $0.42 per share.

(TSX VENTURE:VHV) News; $14 Million Phase Three Drill Program Commences At Valley High's Cordero Silver-Gold Project In Mexico

(TSX VENTURE:VHV) News; $14 Million Phase Three Drill Program Commences At Valley High's Cordero Silver-Gold Project In Mexico


VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(http://www.investorideas.com/ gold and mining stocks blog )  - Sept. 30, 2010) - Valley High Ventures Ltd. ("Valley High") (TSX VENTURE:VHV) is pleased to announce the commencement of a phase three drill program at the Cordero silver, gold, zinc and lead project located 35 kilometres northeast of Hidalgo Del Parral, Chihuahua, Mexico. The phase three program is budgeted at $14,000,000 and will include approximately 59,000 metres of core drilling, initial metallurgical / engineering studies and continued surface exploration. The property comprises wholly-owned claims and consolidated land agreements that total approximately 20,000 hectares and is being explored in a Joint Venture with Levon Resources Ltd. (51% and operator). Valley High is a 49% contributing partner to the project.
A 59,000 metres drill program is expected to begin October 1st; initially with two drill rigs that are currently on site and then expanding with additional rigs in the coming months. Drilling will be divided into three components; 1) continued definition and step-out drilling of the discoveries at the Pozo De Plata and Porphyry Zones, 2) initial step-out drilling from intersections encountered in phase one and phase two drilling, particularly at the Josefina zone and Dos Mil Diez zones, and 3) drill testing of targets outlined by phase one and phase two exploration surveys that included soil geochemistry, geophysics and geological mapping.
The Pozo De Plata Zone was first drilled in October 2009 with 3 out of 4 holes, returning important values in silver, gold, zinc and lead including exceptional values in discovery hole C09-5. Phase 2 drilling commenced in January, 2010 and focused on 50 metre grid drilling surrounding hole C09-5 and some larger step-outs to the southwest towards holes C09-1 and C09-2. Drilling to date has outlined an area of mineralization, some 465 metres long by 200 metres wide and with mineralized diatreme-hosted intervals at depths up to 300 metres. The zone may connect with holes C09-1 and C09-2 farther south for an additional 290 metres of potential strike length. Pozo De Plata is a tabular mineralized diatreme breccia with mineralized rhyolite and dacite dike swarms. Sulfide minerals, sphalerite, galena and possible silver sulphosalts occur as diatreme clasts, disseminated grains and massive accumulations in the diatreme breccia matrix and veins of massive sulfide and high grade replacement mineralization after large limestone clasts within the diatreme.
The Porphyry Zone, located on the east side of the Cordero Dome approximately 1,300 metres northeast of the Pozo De Plata zone comprises a series of nested, altered and mineralized igneous intrusive bodies (stocks) within the eastern contact zone of the Cordero Felsic Dome Complex. It has been tested by 8 holes over a distance of 1200 metres with encouraging results being previously reported from several holes including hole C010-41.
Initial Metallurgical / Engineering Studies
Engineering studies in Phase three will include preliminary metallurgical test work on the Pozo De Plata and Porphyry Zones, initiation of work preparatory to the completion of an initial 43-101 resource estimate and other related engineering studies including infrastructure and environmental base line studies.
Continued Surface Exploration
The majority of the large Cordero property has not been explored. The phase three program will continue surface exploration work including geological mapping, geochemistry and geophysics (3D IP and gravity surveys). Initially work will focus on two areas, the La Ceniza target, immediately northeast of the Porphyry zone and diatremes in the Molino de Viento Caldera Diatreme Complex located 7 km southwest of the Dos Mil Diez zone.
