Kay Mine Drill Program Update
The Company has completed a total of 69,000 meters of HQ core drilling in 126 holes at the Kay Mine since inception of drilling. There are approximately 19 drill holes with assays pending, which will be released as they become available. The Company is fully-funded to complete the Phase 2 program as well as up to 76,000 meters in the recently initiated Phase 3 program which will be used to test the numerous targets located north, south, and west of the Kay Deposit. Construction is currently underway to extend a drill road west of the Kay Deposit towards pads C1 and C2, which will be used to drill the Central Target from west to east (Figure 1). Targeting of drill holes from pads C1 and C2 is currently being refined using a compilation of geophysical and geochemical data, including onsite XRF geochemistry and onsite, laboratory, and airborne hyperspectral data. The company has also recently joined the industry-supported research group CASERM (Center for Advanced Subsurface Earth Resource Models) at the Colorado School of Mines, which is undertaking a study of geochemical vectoring toward mineralization in the Kay deposit. An updated drill plan will be released when road construction nears completion. Permitting is also currently in progress for drill pads W1 and W2, which will allow testing of the Western Target.
