In 2012, 36,623 metres were drilled in 114 holes. The 2012 drilling program focused primarily on definition and expansion drilling on the gold-copper bearing Deerhorn, Southeast, Takom, Megabuck Zones as well as the newly discovered Three firs Zone (see table below). The Southeast zone has a NI 43-101 compliant inferred resource of 146.5 million tonnes grading 0.33% copper with accessory gold; (see news release dated March 1, 2012).
