CEO Andrew Swarthout commented, “We are encouraged by these preliminary results from the Phase I program designed to verify and extend near-surface gold mineralization prior to the beginning of the 2012/13 rainy season. Based upon the favourable drilling and bottleroll extraction tests, Phase II drilling will focus on extending mineralization under the extensive, untested shallow postmineral cover.”

President/CEO James McDonald commented, “We are very pleased with results from stepout drilling. Assays returned a series of encouraging intercepts from a newly discovered mineralized zone in the Farm EM target area, which sits over 350 metres to the southwest of the pit resource and remains open in several directions. Additionally, mineralization in the pit resource continues to open up to the north and west. Ongoing drilling and technical analysis will continue to focus on delineating the extent of mineralization in the pit area and on determining the geometry of the new zone and its relation to the pit-resource mineralization.”

According to an August 21, 2012, 43-101 resource estimate, Promontorio contains 37.5 million ounces silver, 372 million pounds lead, and 436.9 million pounds zinc (61.7 million ounces silver equivalent) measured and indicated and 9.6 million ounces silver, 77.6 million pounds lead and 85.3 million pounds zinc (14.5 million ounces silver equivalent) inferred.
