The Maritime-based junior is drilling its Pilar Gold Project in Sonora, Mexico.

The objectives of the Phase 1 drill program at Pilar have been to confirm continuity within previously interpreted zones of mineralization, discover extensions to the known mineralization, and explore locally for new zones of gold mineralization.

"Our model for the Main Zone has been proving to hold true. The results released today, as well as those already released in Phase 1, have extended the Main Zone’s mineralized envelope to the northwest as well as the southeast by upwards of a total of 145 m," writes the company in a news release.

"This represents an increase of 52% in the length of the Main Zone and potential remains open to both the northwest and southeast."
