With a long history of production and a Resource, the Wilco Project represents a key asset in the Rye Patch portfolio. The property’s bulk-tonnage resources are near surface and open for expansion. Exploration is currently focused on two areas of resources: Colado and Section Line. Both represent epithermal, low-sulfidation type deposits. A resource update in June 2012 increased resources by 86% over the previous estimate from May 2009.
We are focused on extending the Section Line and Colado gold and silver resource areas by identifying drill targets located adjacent to these resources. The Gap target represents potential expansion and connection of the two resource areas.
