Given the importance of the high-grade mineralized zone, future drilling will be separated into two programs: one to focus on outlining the full extent of the high grade mineralization and to better define its geological model, and the other to continue investigating the potential for a large, bulk mineable deposit.

The Company believes that the Marmato project has now been developed sufficiently to justify an independent study on the results of all drilling to date, both from a geological and engineering standpoint. The study will assist the Company in establishing preliminary parameters for use in directing future development plans. Elsewhere, the Company has signed an option agreement on a new gold property in the Buritica gold district located in the western part of Antioquia Department Antioquia is one of the 32 Departments of the Republic of Colombia located in the central northwestern part of this country with a narrow section that borders the Caribbean sea however, most of its territory is mountainous with some important valleys, part of the Andes mountain , some 90 km from the town of Medellin.
The Buritica district is one of the oldest and, along with Marmato, one of the most famous gold producing districts in Colombia. The geological model of the property's mineralization consists of both vein and disseminated mineralization. Initial reconnaissance sampling has returned grades of up to 2g/t in chip samples on surface, an average of 1.5g/t over 25m in continuous channel samples inside an old adit, and grades of up to 45g/t in vein material.
A detailed sampling program is now underway over a wide zone of hydrothermal hydrothermal, hydrothermic
relating to the temperature effects of water, as in hot baths. alteration of almost one sq. km and systematic sampling is being carried out in the old underground workings.
The Company expects that drilling targets at Buritica will be established for follow-up by the second quarter of this year. -0- No Stock Exchange, Securities Commission Or Other Regulatory Authority Noun 1. regulatory authority - a governmental agency that regulates businesses in the public interest
