Results were received for three prospecting samples from the Mt. Rhoderick Dhu area, located north of the C.O.D. vein. One of the surface rock chip grab samples returned significant results, with a value of 23.5 grams per tonne gold, 437 grams per tonne silver, 198 grams per tonne tellurium and 0.7% lead. This sample is from the Amandy vein, situated 1.6 kilometres south-southwest from the summit of Mount Roderick Dhu, west of Jewel Lake, and 11 kilometres north-northeast from the town of Greenwood. The vein was sampled at an historic inclined shaft and ranges up to 30 centimeters thick. The sample consisted of rusty quartz vein material.

The Amandy vein is norther trending, roughly parallels the bedding/foliation planes of the host metasedimentary rocks. The vein consists of quartz alternately banded with host rock. Mineralization consists of pyrite which is oxidized near surface, galena, sphalerite and local tellurides (possibly sylvanite). The vein width ranges from a few centimetres to 3 metres and extends for short distances along strike and down-dip. Historic development consists of open cuts, pits, shafts and a small amount of drifting (BC MInFile).

The recent exploration program at the Amandy is extremely encouraging and the company is currently submitting for Trenching and drilling permits. Plans are being drafted to start work immediately upon receipt of permits.
Analyses disclosed in this release were conducted by ALS Global - Geochemistry Analytical Lab in North Vancouver, BC, Canada. ALS is an independent, fully accredited commercial laboratory. Gold was determined by the fire assay method using a 50-gram sample weight and AA finish, with over-limits checked using a 50-gram sample weight and gravimetric finish. Other metals were analyzed as part of a 48-element package using a four-acid digestion and determination by ICP-MS.
