The Company is further pleased to announce the closing of a non-flow-through, non-brokered private placement financing through the sale of 1,713,000 units at $0.06 per unit for proceeds of $102,780 (HC Financing). Each HC unit consists of 1 common share at $0.06 and one-half (1/2) of one non-flow-through share purchase warrant. Each warrant is exercisable for 24 months at an exercise price of $0.15 per share.

The flow-through funds will be used for ground survey work of the Silver Hope property and specifically, the three new ZTEM-identified targets; non-flow through funds will be used for working capital.
The 2012 ZTEM airborne survey of the Silver Hope Property was the first property-wide survey conducted. The next logical exploration step is a ground survey of the property which can then be overlaid on the ZTEM survey data helping to define and hone the next set of drill targets.
