Chibougamau Independent Mines Inc. has commenced exploration work on several of its properties and expects to start drilling on the Berrigan gold, silver, zinc zone at the end of January. The Berrigan zone is a historical, non NI 43-101 mineralized body discovered in the late 1940's by Noranda Mines. It was drilled for zinc but has very significant gold and silver mineralization as demonstrated in the following historical drill intersections, which are a small number of the numerous mineralized intersections reported (see listing of mineralized intersection in the Plan of Arrangement or NI 43-101 Berrigan Technical Report on the Globex web site).
