The 2012 summer drill program at the Ken Zone of the Newmont Lake Project, B.C. encountered significant Scandium mineralization in addition to the targeted gold and copper. The news release on November 13, 2012 referred to the drill results, including an intersection of 198 metres averaging 0.23 g/t Au and 32.67 g/t Scandium. Scandium is very scarce, and is used as an alloying agent in aerospace, solar cells, fuel cells and high intensity lamps. In a processed format, scandium oxide is extremely valuable. The Company is following up this new aspect of mineralization with metallurgical testing to assess the significance of the scandium discovery.
Other recent activity has been in the Timmins, Ontario gold camp where drill results from 2012 are currently being analysed.
We are currently in the process of planning our 2013 exploration activities as well as investigating a number of other options and will be announcing any significant developments in due course.
The technical information contained in this press release has been reviewed and approved by Mr. Thomas Skimming, P. Eng, Vice-President, Exploration and Director, and a Qualified Person as defined by National Instrument 43-101.
