The Company is currently receiving bids, (locally near the town of Sonora California), to grid auger drill the stockpile of historically milled material to further determine the volume of milled material which reportedly produced 225,000 ounces of gold until shut down due to a dispute in 1916.
The protocol is to assay at 2-meter intervals and once results are substantiated then to bulk sample the material to determine the best recovery methods.
