Significant assay results are contained in Table 1 appended to this news release. The drilling was carried out in the central portion (Phase 1) of the potential open pit as outlined in the Preliminary Economic Assessment (the "PEA") announced on November 14, 2012. A map showing the location of the reported drill holes is shown in Figure 1 appended to this news release.
Dr. Morris Beattie, Chief Executive Officer, commented, "The drilling program was completed early in December 2013. These final assay results are consistent with the results that we have observed throughout this program with the intervals of above-average grade becoming longer as the drilling progressed from south to north. We are now planning our work program for the current year and will re-assess how these encouraging results can be utilized most effectively within the high grade Phase 1 PEA pit."
