ADVANCED SILVER/ZINC MINE PROJECT

ABCOURT-BARVUE PROJECT

 

The Abcourt-Barvue property is conveniently located at Barraute, 60 kilometers (35 miles) north the mining community of Val-d’Or, Quebec. It covers 5,865 hectares with 139 claims and two (2) mining concessions held 100% by Abcourt.

In 1950, zinc was discovered on surface on the Barvue claims. The mine was operated from 1952 to 1957 with an open pit by Barvue Mines Limited and from 1985 to 1990 with an underground operation by Abcourt Mines Inc.

From 2002 to 2007, several drilling programs, technical and environmental studies were completed or were done to provide data for a feasibility study and to support our applications for permits. Subsequently, various alternatives were considered to improve the profitability of this project.

In May 2006, a revision of the Abcourt-Barvue resources was completed by an independent qualified person, Mr. Jean-Pierre Bérubé, P.Eng., consultant for MRB & Associates of Val-d’Or, Québec, Canada. This revision was made according to NI 43-101 Standards. This report is available on SEDAR.

Genivar, Limited Partnership of Quebec City and Bumigeme of Montréal, completed a feasibility study, which was published in February 2007. With this feasibility study, almost all the resources were converted into proven and probable ore reserves. This report is available on SEDAR.

A 43-101 report on the Abcourt-Barvue resources was prepared by Mr. Jean-Pierre Bérubé, engineer and independent consulting geologist with pertinent experience in this field. This report indicates an increase in indicated and inferred resources in comparison with those of 2006. This report  was filed on SEDAR.
