"Our Nordeau West site which reported on March 12, 2009 a NI 43-101 compliant resource (see details below) is well located in an area with strong mining infrastructure. We intend to continue our work in the area with further drilling in the months ahead."
"Plato is concurrently working on two other active gold projects in Timmins, Ontario and in Santa Cruz, Argentina. The success of neighbouring projects in Timmins and in Argentina makes Plato an attractive and well positioned exploration company," said Cohen.
