To more clearly define the deep porphyry targets in the centre of the 2.2 km wide Rio Grande porphyry complex, the companies contracted Quantec Geoscience to complete a 10 line, Titan 24 IP / resistivity survey covering the full extent of the Rio Grande porphyry system. The IP successfully outlined the contact between the oxide and transitional material and the underlying fresh volcanic rocks and the magnetotelluric survey outlined a number of high priority drill targets at depth in the central area of the Rio Grande porphyry system. An additional line was added to the survey covering the Northeast Gold target located 1.6 kilometres from the eastern edge of the Rio Grande porphyry structure.
