Mammoth's mapping has identified additional granodioritic and quartz feldspar porphyritic intrusive bodies situated south west of Masuparia's previous mapped area and steeply to moderately dipping north, northeast and northwest striking structural trends which appear to control the higher gold values. Over the Metalito and El Moreno areas (areas of small artisanal exploration and mining to the north and west, respectively of Masuparia's area of focused exploration) and in the Carneritos area (refer to figure 1. Sample Location Map), rocks with the strongest silicification exhibit patchy vuggy silica texture which could be hydrothermal in origin. Numerous areas with a concentration of vuggy silica float are also observed throughout these areas. In addition, our work has also identified the presence of minor white clay stringers of apparent hydrothermal origin in Masuparia's diamond drill core and in two areas (El Moreno and Los Carneritos), situated 0.7 kilometres west and 1.2 kilometres northeast of Masuparia's drill area, respectfully. The presence of Alunite and/or Dickite clay stringers and hydrothermal vuggy silica could be indicative of an epithermal high sulphidation target exists at Tenoriba such as those hosted at Alamos Gold's Mulatos deposit (wherein following commercial production in 2006 the asset is estimated to produce on average of approximately 150,000 ounces of gold per year and still has approximately 2.0 million ounces of gold resource) and Gold Corp's El Sauzal deposit (which to date has produced approximately 1.5 million ounces of gold).

The company will also, along with two other companies be hosting a free luncheon presentation for those interested in learning more about the company and its projects.
