Chairman J.D. Poliquin said, “Drilling to date on the Ixtaca zone shows good continuity of mineralisation in both horizontal and vertical dimensions. We are very pleased with the results and eagerly anticipate commencing 2011 with a drill program designed to continue testing the strike extent and vertical continuity of the Ixtaca zone, which appears to be marked by strong IP and gold-in-soil responses for at least a kilometre northeast of present drilling.”
