Brownfields exploration drilling has been very successful in the past year at extending the Trinidad North mineralization a further 200 meters to the north. High-grade silver-gold mineralization at Trinidad North remains open to the north and to depth. Underground access and new drilling chambers are currently in preparation to allow for exploration of an additional 250 meter extension of the mineralized system with drilling projected to start from the new drill chambers in September of 2014.
