The drill program, will take approximately 2-3 months to complete and is designed to accomplish three main objectives: Verify historic copper assays; Test the deposit for silver and gold credits; and Upgrade portions of the resource from inferred to indicated status.

Stephen Dunn, President and CEO, said, "We intend to move our Moonlight-Superior project towards the production-stage as quickly as possible, and the current drilling program is the first step.
