Sutter Gold Mining Inc. President and CEO, Leanne Baker said:
The early results from North Gover demonstrate the potential that we believe exists for additional gold resources in Amador County, where well over half of the historic Mother Lode gold production took place. Sutter Gold further consolidated its land and mineral holdings in 2012, and we were able to take advantage of drills already on site from our Lincoln Mine Project exploration program to drill these initial holes. Exploration is a key focus of our team, both on our mining project under the direction of Art Campo, our Chief Mine Geologist, and elsewhere including our substantial Mother Lode holdings, under the direction of Scott Briscoe, our new Senior Exploration Geologist.
