A sample of 6.1 g/t gold was taken from the silicified tuff (see Figure 2).The Company also announces that David Grandy has stepped down as a director of the Company in order to pursue other opportunities. The Company thanks Mr. Grandy for his services, including helping take the company public, and wishes him the best in his future endeavours.
