Three new claims covering approximately 2,294 hectares were acquired via the BC Mineral Titles Online system by Ximen. These claims adjoin the Ymir Protection mine property acquired last week. The new claims were staked to cover the mineralized trend extending northeast from the Arizona mine. Part of this area was flown in 2007/8 by Fugro Airborne Surveys Corp. for a helicopter-borne geophysical survey, using the DIGHEM electromagnetic system and a cesium vapor magnetometer. The purpose was to identify the geophysical signature of known mineralized shear-hosted vein systems and trace these signatures along strike to the northeast in search of similar deposits. There are several mineralized vein systems covered by the airborne survey.

Ximen’s land package in the Nelson-Ymir-Salmo area now amounts to approximately 18,889 hectares.
