VP Exploration Tom Burkhart commented, “The drill program at La Colorada has been mainly focused on the Veta Madre target with four drill rigs active through the first four months of 2012. We have expanded Veta Madre, doubling the area of mineralization approximately 400 by 300 metres. The El Creston resource also remains a high priority with drilling scheduled during the second and third quarters of this year. Drilling in the El Creston mineralization continues down depth, below previous drilling, and on strike in both directions. In addition to ongoing resource delineation on Veta Madre and El Creston, the company has identified multiple target areas within the large La Colorada mineral system that are also scheduled for continued exploration and drilling.

“Results to date at the San Antonio drill program are promising. The drill program at San Antonio was designed to explore the extent and depth of mineralization of the newly identified La Colpa mineral zone. Mineralization at La Colpa has expanded, by approximately 250 metres north/south by 200 metres east/west, and remains open to the south and down dip. Our current thinking is that La Colpa represents a localized parallel zone of mineralization situated approximately 100 metres east of the main resource area. Additional drilling will be required to define the limits of La Colpa mineralization and the company expects that La Colpa may provide a near-surface addition to the San Antonio resource base.”
