  3. *Gold silver ratio used to calculate AgEq is 75 g/t Ag to 1 g/t Au

  4. 75 g/t AgEq external cut off

Gregory K. Liller, Executive Chairman and Chief Operating Officer commented, "I continue to be very pleased with the results of the first exploration holes we have completed at Tepic. These holes were designed to test areas adjacent to and outside of the areas that were volumetrically included in historic resource estimations. Two things stand out to me; 1) all holes drilled thus far had +75 g/t silver intersections and 2) the weighted average grade of these intersections is 301 g/t AgEq. This average grade is better than previous drilling in the same structures and may reflect improved core recovery. All this bodes well for the project's expansion potential and I am excited to start the next go around of drilling at Tepic."

As planned, both drill rigs have now been moved to the company's La Tigra gold silver project, also located in Nayarit, where the maiden drilling program is underway. The data from the Tepic drill holes is being incorporated into the project's 3-D database and model to plan the continuation of the Phase 2 drilling at Tepic. Drill pads have already been constructed on the Taunas targets to drill the first test holes within the newly discovered area on the eastern portion of the project.

The Phase 2 drill program has been designed to test extensions of the previously defined breccia/vein structures, test newly defined targets and infill the existing drill pattern in order to facilitate the estimation of an updated NI43-101 compliant resource. The Tepic project is a +2,600-hectare project where the previous operator completed 149 core holes totaling more than 31,000 meters.
