Bermont Zones - considering the good results obtained from previous drilling campaigns, the Company is going to continue the definition of both the 166 and 161-162 zones.

Phase II - estimated at $550,000, Drilling of anomalies revealed by the IP surveys and additional drilling on the Adelemont, Norcourt and Bermont gold zones, including IP probing survey of drill holes and 3-D modeling of the mineralized zones.

Phase I and II will overlap and the estimated time to complete is 6 to 12 months. Concurrently to the above, permitting is in place for site preparation for the development of the underground workings.

The portal has been re-opened and the ramp has been partially de-watered, which has allowed for iron meshing under the portal entry.



Surface drilling - 5 drill sites were prepared in the Norcourt zone. The drill was moved to the property before Christmas and the drilling commenced in January 2012. The Phase I drill program is 4,400 metres and is expected to be completed shortly. A Phase II drill program will follow.
