Drill hole TU-16-318A was drilled from the bottom of hole TU-13-318 which in 2013 stopped short of the vein zone reported today. By deepening this hole the Company was able to confirm a zone of veining intersected up-dip in hole TU-11-056, which in 2011 hit two high grade veins that returned 1.26 meters of 2.45 g/t gold and 854 g/t silver and 0.95 meters of 13.86 g/t gold and 2577 g/t silver respectively. Results have also been received from hole TU-16-462 drilled above TU-11-056.

Further holes have been drilled on this section and results are pending. The mineralisation intersected in all holes is limestone hosted and located outside of the 2016 Amended PEA pit.
