Ian Klassen, President, remarked 'We are very pleased to be able to support the geophysical interpretation at Little Hat with very encouraging soil geochemistry. The proximity of Little Hat Mountain, its similar geology and now geophysics and geochemistry to our expanding mineral resource 900 m to the north at Mexican Hat is very promising.
