Canada-based CB Gold has initiated the first 3,000m drilling at the Real Minera mining property, part of the Vetas Gold Project.

CB Gold said that the first hole commenced 22 November 2010 and will test both the stockwork and vein systems.

In 2011, CB Gold expects to drill up to an additional 10,000m on the Real Minera property, with further drilling on other targets in the Vetas Gold Project.

CB Gold president and CEO Fabio Capponi said the start of drilling at the Vetas Gold Project is the first step in their exploration and drilling programme, which the company expects to perform through the end of 2010 and during 2011.
