The Company has also contracted Aurora Geosciences of Yellowknife to complete a detailed review of all historical geophysics work completed around the Lupin mine area in order to review existing drill targets and to plan a detailed geophysics program commencing in early September. This program will be used to identify and prioritize targets for a drill program planned for the fall and winter of 2011. The Company plans to mobilize drills in the fall to commence the drilling later this year. Work at Ulu will be limited to detailed mapping and sampling with the plan being to commence an extensive drill program early in 2012.
