The Company conducted an airborne survey, consisting of 310 line kilometres of 3-axis magnetic gradiometer and gamma spectrometer mapping of the entire 2,555 hectare Treasure Mountain property. Maps were received and interpreted by SJ Geophysics of Delta, BC.

The Company conducted a geochemical sampling program consisting of 1,127 samples focusing on four primary targets: the East Zone, the West soil grid, the NE Zone A soil grid, and the NE Zone B soil grid. The East Zone is an area between the current mine workings and the location of an outcrop that was trenched in 2011, 800 metres away. The original program consisted of 442 samples and was increased by 39 following receipt and review of the geotechnical data. The West soil grid, from which 381 samples were taken, was also added after receiving the initial geotechnical data and results are pending. The two NE Zone grids were added after the initial report was reviewed.
Maps of the geochemical results from the East Zone can be viewed on the Company's website at Completed Soil Samples. www.huldrasilver.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/09/Completed-Soil-Samples.pdf.
Maps of the areas where additional geochemical samples have been taken can be viewed on the Company website at Additional Proposed Soils. www.huldrasilver.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/09/Additional-Proposed-Soils.pdf
Ryan Sharp, President and Chief Executive Officer, states, "We are extremely pleased with these results as they help to further determine the exploration potential of the entire Treasure Mountain property."
