Patrick J. Cruickshank, MBA, Director and Technical Advisory Committee, stated, "This was a significant hole in our five (5) targeted VMS drill holes in this program. It displays this targets rich copper characterization. These copper results are spectacular and not common in the BMC. We are getting a much clearer picture of this VMS massive sulphide body and the BHEM survey will put the finishing touches on the geophysics, EarthEX Geophysical Solutions will process the results and integrate the data into our 3D model and help us clearly define this targets mineralization and any additional mineralization within the BHEM zone. This will define our next steps in this target area. Clearly, we see these two (2) copper zones as special. The continuation of the copper in a sediments package is a nice surprise in this DDH."

"In drill hole NM220004, there are 2 VMS zones separated by 3.12 meters of interbedded sediments and volcanics. The mineralization within the sediment / volcanic package consisted primarily of pyrite and chalcopyrite, the copper mineralization appearing as stringers of chalcopyrite. This is common in these deposits, extending the length of the mineralized section into what would normally be barren rock, definitely a pleasant surprise," stated Gary Lohman, P.Geo., Technical Advisory Committee.
