Bruner Gold Project, Nye County, Nevada
In the fourth quarter of 2012, a total of eleven reverse circulation drill holes (B-1209 thru B-1219) and one diamond drill hole (B-1208C) were completed at the Penelas East discovery area for a total of 2,920 meters (9,578 feet) of drilling. Drilling was completed mid-December, and the Company expects to be in a position to announce all drill results by the end of January. A follow-up drill program is currently being planned, and drilling is expected to re-commence in March, depending upon winter weather and spring thaw conditions.
Aranka North Gold Project, Guyana, South America
Soil sampling via hand auger holes one meter deep on 100-meter spacing across eight square kilometers of the Ridge Anomaly has identified two prominent gold-in-soil anomalies: Ridge North Anomaly and Ridge South Anomaly. The Ridge South Anomaly has overall dimensions of 1 kilometer wide by 1.8 kilometers long, and trends in a NNW direction towards the Ridge North Anomaly, which is 0.8 kilometers wide by 1.2 kilometers long. These two anomalies are separated by a distance of approximately one kilometer. The South Ridge Anomaly has ATV trail access to it and has been the focus of follow-up power auger drilling on 100-meter spacing to sample below the one meter depth of the hand auger soil sampling program. A total of 35 power auger holes out of a 120-hole program were completed before the holiday break, and a total of 90 soil samples have been delivered to the prep lab in Georgetown, Guyana for ultimate assaying at Acme Analytical Laboratories in Vancouver, Canada. The field program will re- commence in mid-January. The balance of the power auger drill holes are expected to be completed by the end of February, with all results anticipated to be in by the end of March.
The Company had in excess of $4.1 million cash on hand on December 31, 2012, and believes it is sufficiently financed to carry out its exploration work plan at both projects into early 2014.
