The District Geological Assistant, France Belley-Biswas, went to a property visit that was organized by the company for shareholders, stakeholders, media, analysts, institutional portfolio managers, and local interested parties. The project geologists gave a tour of several outcrops uncovered in the Dana North Zone during a recent surface exploration program, and showed some of the core collected during their 2011 diamond drilling programs.
