European Cobalt – EUC (Australia) – (A$.049) – A$.037 – announced that it has signed an exclusive option agreement to acquire 100% of the Edleston Gold Project located in Ontario, Canada. Managing Director, Mr Rob Jewson commented “The Edleston Gold Project is an advanced exploration opportunity with particularly exciting exploration upside potential. The work done to date has outlined a significant mineralised system which can be effectively targeted using IP geophysics. To date only 540m of strike has been tested along a corridor with multiple moderate to strong IP conductors delineated along a total strike exceeding 3,300m. The extent of these anomalies at present are constrained by the extent of the IP surveys.” In excess of CDN$10M has been spent to date on primarily geophysical and drilling activities across the Edleston Project by 55 North Mining Inc (formerly SGX Resources Inc). Due to the lack of outcrop at surface, exploration has largely been driven by a combination of detailed magnetics to define the structural and lithological framework.
FenixOro Gold – FENX ($.245) – $.56 – announced that it has received environmental authorization required to commence its maiden drilling program at the Abriaqui project in Antioquia, Colombia. As part of the drilling program, FenixOro will also be providing data and geotechnical information to assist with the construction of upgraded roads for local use.

With the permit in hand the contract with Colombia veteran Logan Drilling has been finalized. The surface owners in all areas to be drilled are members of the local, legal small miner’s cooperative that is FenixOro’s partner in the venture. Access arrangements have also been finalized. Creating access to the drill pads will not require the felling of any trees and only short intervals of non-mechanized trail preparation.
