On September 10, 2012, Solitario announced its initial NI-43-101 resource estimate for the Seligman deposit. The 2012 drilling campaign was designed to achieve several objectives. The main focus was to convert Seligman inferred resources in specific areas to measured and indicated categories. Other objectives included obtaining sample material to carry-out metallurgical and geochemical testing and to measure geotechnical characteristics for mine planning at Seligman. Several holes were also drilled at the Centennial gold deposit to convert inferred resources to measured and indicated categories as well as to test potential extensions of mineralization to the south. The Centennial deposit was the subject of a Feasibility Study issued earlier this year (press release dated Feb. 27, 2012).
