Target Area: Adriana
We have recently identified a prospective copper-silver target in the southern part of the Zacatecas district that we plan to test by drilling in 2011. The Adriana area is located to the west of Capstone Mining's Cozamin mining property, where they recently announced the discovery of significant copper-silver mineralization in the footwall of the Mala Noche vein, the principal host of the mineralization in the Cozamin mine. Our claims about the Capstone claims immediately to the west of their property. We have
determined that both the Mala Noche structure and the footwall structure extends onto our property. Our mapping and sampling has
traced these structures for more than one kilometer to the west and northwest and we have obtained copper, zinc and silver values
from sampling that appear to be consistent with the upper part of the Mala Noche vein. Capstone has drilled exploration holes within 50 meters of our common property boundary. We plan an initial drill program of five holes totaling 2,100 meters at a cost of about $350,000 early in 2011. If our results are promising, we plan to conduct additional drilling.
Cautionary Note regarding Estimates of Measured, Indicated and Inferred Resources: The United States Securities and Exchange Commission permits mining companies, in their filings with the SEC, to disclose only those mineral deposits that a company can economically and legally extract or produce. We use certain terms in this presentation, such as “indicated” and “inferred resources” that the SEC guidelines strictly prohibit us from including in our filings with the SEC. US investors are cautioned not to assume that any or all of measured, indicated or inferred resources are economically or legally mineable or that these resources will ever be converted into reserves. US investors are urged to consider closely the disclosure in our Form 10-K and other SEC filings. You can review and obtain copies of these filings from the SEC’s website at http://www.sec.gov/edgar.shtml.
