Detailed ground magnetic surveying and geological mapping, to better define drill targets, have commenced.

The Company intends to drill approximately 1,400 m to further delineate the newly discovered Sunrise Zone, where 7.23 grams per tonne (g/t) gold across 12.2 metres (m) was recently intersected in RC drill hole BV15-31 (see the Company's news release dated August 24, 2015). Drill hole BV15-31 ended in mineralization at 70.10 m depth, with mineralization open in all directions. Gold mineralization is hosted within silicified quartzite crosscut by quartz veins containing pyrite and pyrrhotite, along an inferred northeasterly trending fault structure. The Sunrise Zone is centrally located within a 550 m long gold- and arsenic-in-soil anomaly, 9 km southwest of Kaminak's Coffee deposit.
