The mineral resource does not include high grade intercepts of 7.74% Cg over 135.60 metres including 16.81% Cgr over 44.10 metres from hole LL-16-01, two different intersections in hole LL-16-02 reporting 17.08% Cg over 22.30 metres and 14.80% Cg over 15.10 metres, and 110.80 metres of 14.56% Cg in hole LL-16-03, nor the 28.5 metres of 16.53% Cg and 21.5 metres of 11.53% Cg reported on January 6, 2016 and 9,0% over 90.75 metres reported on September 24th 2015 from the Refractory Zone.

The area of mineralization appears to be 200 metres wide, has a current strike length of approximately 400 metres in the northwest to southeast direction and is open in both directions.

The table below shows the drilling results from holes LL-16-001 to LL-16-010. A drill hole location map can be found under the heading Quicklinks: Drill Map which includes 2015 and 2016 results and highlights.
