Remedial roadwork continues to advance on schedule, the drill is on site and core drilling is planned to begin ASAP. As John Kowalchuk previously stated, "We are very excited about this first phase of drilling. It will be the first time ever that the Providence group of gold mines has been drilled. During the past year we verified the system and determine drill targets by ground proofing, which included both underground mapping and sampling from the 600 hundred level, surface geological mapping, soil geochemical sampling and structural modeling. Our exploration effort to date has given us confidence in this prolific high grade gold system, and we are very encouraged in what the upcoming drilling potentially may yield."
