A.I.S. Resources Limited ( TSX: AIS, OTCQB: AISSF ) (the "Company" or "AIS") announces the Company has commenced a soil sampling program at its Fosterville Toolleen project, located 12 km from the Kirkland Lake Fosterville mine as a pre-cursor to its next drilling program. The sampling is taking place adjacent to the area where the high antimony and arsenic pathfinders were detected in drill hole 31.

The location is close to the Toolleen-Angle Road that dissects the project. The survey lines extend up to 1.4 km in the north-east area of the exploration licence. The soil sampling will be done at 20m intervals with 50m separation between the lines. Our latest model Olympus XRFp gun will analyse samples collected on a daily basis. Samples will be sent to the laboratory for pathfinder element analysis.
Gravity Survey Reprocessing and Interpretation
The gravity survey completed recently by Fender Geophysics is being reprocessed and interpreted by Nordic Geoscience, with chief Geophysicist Asbjorn N Christensen completing the work. The reprocessed gravity survey in conjunction with the results of the soil survey will be used to determine additional high priority drill targets.
