The 12,000m program is in addition to the prior 3,540m of drilling completed in 2015. The new drilling will infill a large part of the Inferred mineral resources and is anticipated to upgrade them to the Indicated mineral resources category. Necessary permits for drilling have been obtained and drill pads and access roads have been prepared. The current infill drilling program will consist of 35 holes and will be completed with a Hydrocore 2000 diamond drill rig that has been contracted from Hubbard Drilling, based in Cuenca, Ecuador.
