The testwork program will evaluate the possible process options for the San Ramon ore, including heap leaching, carbon-in-pulp (CIP), carbon-in-leach (CIL), and floatation concentration processing. Additionally, tailings disposal options will be evaluated. As this testwork program progresses, results will be incorporated into the Preliminary Economic Assessment (PEA) being prepared by Mine Development Associates (MDA) (news release dated September 11, 2012).

"We are very pleased to be able to continue taking the San Ramon deposit towards our goal of development in a timely process," comments Ian Slater, Chief Executive Officer. "We are also delighted with the addition of both Alan Baker and Jeff Toohey and their wealth of responsible mine development experience."

Mr. Baker has over 35 years of experience in design and construction of gold projects including surface and underground mining and process plants.
