“Our 2012 drill program continues to successfully convert Inferred ounces to Indicated ounces as well as enlarge the 147 and Contact zones which both remain open for expansion,” said Howard Bird, Brigus’ Senior Vice President of Exploration. “Deep drilling shows good down-dip continuity from surface with excellent results at approximately 400m vertical depth. We are looking forward to releasing an updated NI 43-101 resource statement next month.”
