While continuing to pursue mining the remnants of predecessors’ exploitation activities at Martha, Hunt is also evaluating the metallurgy of the gold and silver veins on its La Josefina property for optimum flotation processing and investing substantially in the modification of the Martha mill to best accommodate this new metallurgy.

Ongoing production at the Martha Project is being undertaken without established mineral resources or reserves and the Corporation has not established the economic viability of the operations on the Martha Project.   As a result, there is increased uncertainty and economic risks of failure associated with these production activities. 

Klaus Triebel, Hunt Mining's director of project development, is the qualified person under National Instrument 43-101 who has approved the technical and scientific aspects of this press release.
