KN 30-06 was spotted 40 m southeast of KN 33-06 and drilled at -50º under it. Both holes intersected a northwesterly striking diorite dyke which cross-cut the main zone.

KN 35-06 is part of a northwest-southeast cross-section with KN 23-06 and KN 29-06. All holes were drilled at -50º to the northwest. KN 29-06 was located 35 m southeast of KN 23-06, and KN 35-06, 40 m southeast of KN 29-06. KN 23-06 intersected 1.00 m of 2.13 g/t gold; KN 29-06, 16.10 m of 3.33 g/t gold; and KN 35-06, 15.20 m of 5.37 g/t gold.

KN 36-06 is part of a northwest-southeast cross-section with KN 24-06 and KN 30-06. All holes were drilled at -50º to the northwest with KN 30-06 35 m southeast of KN 24-06 and KN 36-06, 40 m southeast of KN 30-06. KN 24.-06 intersected 10.60 m of 1.45 g/t gold; KN 30-06 intersected 11.40 m of 6.03 g/t gold and KN 36-06, 11.20 m of 3.49 g/t gold.

During the 2005 and 2006 programs, the Djambaye 2 gold zone was intersected in 32 of 34 holes. These drill holes tested the zone over only 1,100 m of its known length of 3,131 m. The zone is still open to the south. The deepest intersection of the zone was at 110 m. To put this in perspective, the Djambaye 2 zone shares many characteristics with Nevsun Resources' Tabakoto gold deposit, which is currently being mined and is only 8 km northeast of the Djambaye 2. The open pit on the Tabakoto deposit is expected to be 205 m deep, and the zone has been intersected as deep as 600 m.

Once the results are in, the Company plans to do a mineral reserve study. The Kenieba concession is in a 20 by 200 km block which covers 5 gold deposits, 4 gold mines and where over 30 million ounces of gold has already been found. The area has not been fully explored, and expectations are high that additional gold deposits will be discovered.

The drill core samples were submitted to Abilab Afrique d'l'Ouest SARL (Abilab) which is located in Bamako, Mali. Most of the samples were assayed by means of fire assay with atomic absorption finish. Where visible gold was seen, the assays were completed through pulp metallic sieve analysis which is a more thorough method that helps to reduce the problems associated with the nugget effect of gold.
