The verification drilling program to confirm the historical estimate for the oxide copper mineralization is underway. The work completed by Occidental Minerals at Van Dyke concentrated on the oxide copper mineralization. The current drill program is designed to verify the historical data from Occidental as well as test the potential for sulphide copper-molybdenum mineralization below the oxide zone. With the addition of SGS Metcon/KD Engineering and Southwest Exploration Services, the main consulting groups required to complete the Preliminary Economic Assessment on the Van Dyke oxide copper deposit are in place.
