MPX Geophysics Ltd. of Markham Ontario, Canada was contracted to conduct the 555 line kilometre helicopterborne geophysical magnetic and radiometric survey which covered the entire project area. The survey was flown at a height of 70 metres ("m") with 100m line spacing. The Company intends to use the airborne survey to define intrusive related mineralization within the complete project area. Final processing and interpretation of the data will be completed in September and the results will assist in designing the 2012 drilling program.
