A preliminary diamond drill program consisting of three drill holes totalling 717 m (2,366 ft) has now been completed on the Alto/Noront 50/50 joint ventured 33 claim Windfall Lake base metal and gold project located in Urban Twp., Quebec some 90 km east of Lebel-sur-Quevillon.

The recently completed Alto/Noront drill program tested beneath known surface gold showings ("Trench Zone") averaging up to 9.0 g per ton across 3.0 m (9.9 ft) with coincident geophysical anomalies trending in the favourable northeast direction. The three new holes inclined to the northwest completed a fence for 375 m (1,237 ft) across mineralized acid volcanics down to an approximate vertical depth of 200 m (660 ft). The sulphide mineralization consists of mainly iron sulphides (pyrite) with minor copper sulphides (chalcopyrite) and ranges from disseminated amounts to semi-massive and massive stringers and patches throughout the entire length of all 3 holes similar to that observed in the overlying overlying

The drill core is presently being sampled and split prior to being shipped to a recognized commercial laboratory for assaying by conventional methods. Results will be released when the assaying is completed.
Subject to assay results, a second drill program will commence early in the New Year to delineate the presently known mineralization at depth and along strike in all directions as well as testing additional gold and base metal targets on the Windfall Lake property. These exploration targets have been outlined by earlier completed geochemical and geophysical surveys including induced polarization that also gave favourable responses over the known sulphide related surface gold showings tested by the above initial drilling program.
