Braveheart Resources Inc. (TSXV: BHT) is pursuing an ambitious three year exploration and development plan for its 100% owned Alpine Mine gold project, 20 km northeast of Nelson in southeastern British Columbia. The company intends to carry out bulk sampling and additional drilling this year as it looks to expand on the resource estimate it tabled in early January.
