Summary of activities
- The Company's exploration efforts during the three month period ended March 31, 2008 were primarily focused on the receipt and interpretation of exploration data generated in 2007 for the Pardo, Turner, and BQ properties, including the preparation of comprehensive technical reports for assessment filing with the relevant government agencies and jurisdictions.
The Company plans to focus its 2008 exploration efforts on the Pardo property in Ontario, and the BQ property in British Columbia.
The Company intends to carry out a 1,500 metre diamond drilling program on the Pardo property in early June. The program, comprised of 50 to 70 drill holes, will evaluate strong IP anomalies over an area measuring 2 kilometres by 2 kilometres, as well as testing additional targets at depth in the southern portion of the Pardo property.
The Company also plans to carry out a diamond drilling program on its BQ property in June 2008. The program, comprised of approximately five holes and 650 metres, will evaluate three of the strongest coincident IP and soil geochemical anomalies on the eastern portion of the property.
The Company will continue to review, evaluate, and potentially acquire new, highly prospective land positions, either by staking, purchase or option, or by negotiating joint venture agreements.
