Dr. Chris Osterman, President and CEO of Sundance, stated, "That these encouraging drill results have corroborated our underground sampling and the primary silver grades in the Mina Antigua holes will add another dimension to the project."

THE PROPERTY:

The total Property area covers 38,100 hectares in northern Sonora State. The region hosts large Cu-Mo porphyry deposits, such as Cananea and Creston, and a number of mesothermal and epithermal gold-silver deposits, including the San Francisco (Timmins Gold), Mercedes (Yamana Gold) and Santa Elena (Silver Crest Mines). Excellent road access provides year-round exploration (http://www.sundanceminerals.com/s/San_Ricardo.asp).

SUNDANCE-PAGET MINERALS AGREEMENT:

Sundance has an agreement with Paget Minerals (Paget), wherein Paget has an exclusive right to earn an initial 51% interest by incurring US$500,000 in exploration expenditures by the first anniversary of the closing date and an additional US$5M by the fourth anniversary of the closing date. Paget also retains an exclusive right to earn an additional 9% by funding a pre-feasibility study in the three-year period following the 51% earn-in date.

Sundance will be the operator during the first 12 months employing its established technical and logistical support team in Mexico. The operator in the ensuing years will be determined by Paget.

Quality Control:

Geochemical samples are collected in accordance with accepted industry standards and best practices. Samples were submitted to Skyline Assayers and Laboratories, Tucson, Arizona, for fire assay. Gold and silver are analyzed by 30gm fire assay. As standard procedure, Sundance conducts routine quality-assurance and quality-control analysis on all assay results, including the systematic utilization of certified reference materials.
