Drilling resumed on March 8, 2007 on the Kinkine deposit.

Drilling is also stepping mineralization to the east and northeast. The second RC rig is slated to resume drilling on the KD-1/Northern Plateau on March 14th, 2007. This drilling aims to connect KD-1 and Northern Plateau into one continuous mineralized zone. On the Northwest Plateau or Sanu Filanan Extension, an aggressive program of delineation drilling will follow up on the latest series of drill holes completed in early February. Results from that February program are expected shortly.
Regional aircore drilling resumed on March 9th, 2007 at Banjounani, 15 kilometres northwest of the Koekoe/Kinkine resource areas.
