Exploration work will focus on expanding the potential of the 3Ts Project following a successful winter drill program that resulted in the discovery of the Ian and Johnny Veins as well as the extension of the Tommy Vein System. The summer exploration program will comprise of trenching, geological mapping and prospecting, which will be followed by a drill program. Mechanical trenching will be utilized to define the vein orientation of the new vein systems as well as to refine other drill targets, while prospecting and geological mapping will be undertaken over the eastern side of the Project area. Historic exploration programs discovered anomalous surface quartz veins samples to the east of the known vein systems but have yet to be followed up by detailed exploration. The underexplored area extends for 3km to the east of the Ted-Mint Vein System and includes high-grade samples of up to 89.8 g/t gold and 592 g/t silver.
