Outlook on the Ishkoday Discovery Property
Positive drill results on the Ishkoday Discovery Property (the "Ishkoday Discovery Property") have identified a gold and base metal environment hosted in three base metal trends, 3,000m each in strike length, within a 1km wide corridor. The Corporation believes that its management of the short-term needs of shareholders, coupled with its long-term strategic planning for the development of a three-phase drilling program on the Ishkoday Discovery Property, and the creation of a defined business plan of growth through asset monetization and discovery, are value drivers. Having said this, the Corporation is of the firm opinion that a share consolidation will only proceed on a strategic basis.
While management believes that the cash position in the interim is strong, the Corporation will need to complete a private placement to continue developing the gold-rich base metal environment on the Ishkoday Discovery Property. There is no guarantee that the will be successful in completing a private placement.
