The company said it plans about 2,500m of diamond drilling on the property, which covers 15,563 hectares, over the next two months.

Last year, the company conducted multi-parameter airborne geophysics on the property and completed a total of 470 line km.

The geophysical program was complimented by ground-based exploration to identify drill targets for 2011, the company said.

According to the company, the 2010 exploration program confirmed the existence of a previously indicated Cu/Mo porphyry system in the NIC North area.
