Last week Jane Werniuk wrote about DRC RESOURCES’ Afton project, which prompted Mark Richards to write: "An interesting article about a project that we hope will turn into a mine." And he added a short geography lesson, "Whether Kamloops is picturesque is open to interpretation, but it certainly isn’t in the Okanagan Valley as it sits beside the Thompson River."

John Kruzick, chairman of DRC also wrote, saying "Thank you for writing such a nice article on the Afton ribbon cutting ceremony along with some new updates on our progress. I have already received a lot of good comments from others regarding your article."

DRC recently closed a $3-million private placement, and the funds will be used to expand and accelerate work at the Afton project.

Also, last week Marilyn Scales highlighted some of the very high grades being encountered during gold exploration. It seems she missed one. "What about BLACK PEARL MINERALS’ recent results near Snow Lake, Manitoba?" wrote D. Ziehlke. "They are better than what you listed!"

Black Pearl’s Wekusko Lake property is located 21 km east of Snow Lake, and the winter drill program tested the McCafferty vein and the North high grade zone of the Gold Dust vein. Hole BP 05-13, in the Gold Dust zone, assayed 156.28 g/t Au over 2.75 metres, which was part of a longer intercept of 4.50 metres grading 17.40 g/t Au. Drilling will continue after spring break-up.
