Mr. Peter Rutledge states, "This 2013 exploration placer drilling program is an addition to the lode drilling, which has also commenced to test the intrusive targets." (See news release dated May 14, 2013). Mr. Rutledge further states, "These drill targets were generated from previous drilling results and from interpretations performed by geologists whom have conducted work in the past. The Proposed 2013 drill holes are designed to twin one historic drill hole combined with stepout and scout drilling targeting geophysical anomalies. The main objective of the 2013 lode drilling program is interpreted near surface mineralized zones."
