Approximately 25 kilometers of additional gridding is currently underway and will be followed-up with IP geophysical and geochemical surveying, envisioned to close off a large, 1.7 km long anomaly located at West Grid 4 on the Blackwater West property where limited drilling last season has been highly encouraging.
