Hi Gang:

Today I got a really good look at the mine, as we did one of our famous “Pack-out” days. Basically, Bill, Sarah and I blitzed the mine for all of the specimens that were tucked in to various nooks and crannies. It actually was that bad of a job. We extracted 33 bins of materials. We hosed, packed, and loaded the car and it only took us about 5 hours. Byron was in the West Cross Cut and Dave was drilling the face. Basically, the mine looks like a big ladder with the rungs extending out beyond the uprights. The Black Sheep is still in gear and still giving us new and unusual things. The West Cross Cut and the Northwest Cross Cut are virtually one area - the mineralization is that heavy. Byron is constantly encouraged by the materials that come from there. So am I for that matter. The East Cross Cut is also very encouraging. Beyond that we have The Next West Cross Cut, The New Northwest Cross Cut, The Face, The New East Cross Cut. All of which are, we hope still developing. They are all showing enough promise to keep us going. Anyway we are all pleasantly tired and will talk again tomorrow.

Hope everyone is well.

Cheers, Jonina and Byron
