As previously announced on March 23, 2015, the Corporation closed a non-brokered private placement (the “Private Placement”) of $1,200,000 for the sole and exclusive purpose of completing a minimum 13-hole drilling program comprising a minimum of 4300 meters at its Zgounder Silver Mine in Morocco.

The objective of the surface drilling program are threefold:

  • - Validate widespread mineralization hypothesis across known deposit,
  • - Explore lateral extension of the deposit to the north and the east,
  • - Explore extension at depth of the deposit.
