The discovery of a new zone to the East near surface with respectable silver grades is very positive for us. Further work will be required to determine the full extent of this new zone. This discovery illustrates the continued success of our exploration program and the potential that still exists to enhance and extend the life of the Zgounder mine.

Furthermore, the official identification of the Proustite Ag3AsS3 also gives us comfort as it has been identified in various core holes drilled to date by our geologist. We are looking forward receiving additional results in the coming weeks.
