Completed a ten-hole diamond drilling program in 2008; hole FDD007 intersected 18 m at 0.27% Cu from 18 m and 5 m at 0.01% Mo from 17 m. Cu mineralization occurs in a series of east-west zones controlled by the intrusion of porphyry dikes and sills into basaltic and andesitic volcanic and tuffaceous rocks. Drilling has confirmed that the stratigraphy and mineralization dip 45 degrees south; there are also high-angle porphyry dikes that are altered and mineralized.
