We are pleased with the Company’s progress at Cordero, which has advanced quickly from our original discovery in 2009 through four accelerated drill programs to reach the present resource estimate. The new resource estimate includes a 57% increase in the indicated silver resource over the Company’s June 2012 resource estimate” (“Cordero Project June 2012 Mineral Resource Update” dated July 31, 2012 as amended May 10, 2013 prepared by Independent Mining Consultants, Inc. “IMC”). “The resource estimate includes data from holes in the Porphyry Zone and also the Phase 4 drill results from the Aida claim acquired in 2013, which consolidated 100% ownership of the district” (news release April 30, 2014). “The resource expansion across the claim confirms our projections. Owning the entire Cordero district with this large scale discovery is a major accomplishment for our team and Levon shareholders“.
