Drill results continue to indicate the presence of a significant epithermal silver-gold vein system (summary of drill results can be found below). The highest values were found in BDD-N-43, in which a hanging-wall split of the Villa vein averages 2,590 g/t silver and 5.01 g/t gold over 0.75 metres. (
These drill results have extended the strike-length of high-grade silver-gold mineralization on the Villa vein system for an additional distance of almost 300 metres, which now demonstrates a minimum strike length of approximately 500 metres for high-grade silver-gold along the Villa vein system. The Villa vein system remains open both to the north and the south, presenting additional exploration opportunities.
These latest high-grade drilling results come near the intersection of the Villa vein system, the Escondida vein system and the Sibila vein, a structurally complex zone that offers targets for future exploration (see Figure 3). Additionally, a distance of almost two kilometres along the Sibila vein separates the high-grade results from BDD-N-43 from an earlier intercept in BDD-N-2 on the Sibila vein (440 g/t Ag, 3.01 g/t Ag over 0.37 metres). This structural combination of the Villa vein system with the Sibila vein adds an additional 2,000 metres to the exploration potential to the south of the most recent high-grade results in BDD-N-43 (Figure 4).
Drilling on the Naranjillo property has produced significant silver-gold values over a distance of approximately five kilometres. These latest drill results present continuing evidence for the presence of major epithermal silver-gold vein district at Naranjillo in the style of other, historical, Mexican high-grade silver-gold vein districts.

Assays and Quality Assurance/Quality Control
Commercially obtained standards were inserted between every tenth core sample as were blanks obtained from barren rock in nearby road material quarries. Chemex laboratory also inserted a blank and a standard every 20 samples. Rejects and pulps from the high grade intersection in hole BDD-N-10 were both re-assayed at
