Metalline Mining Starts Drilling and Airborne Survey at Sierra Mojada Project in Mexico

Metalline Mining Company ("Metalline") has begun a drilling program and airborne geophysical survey at Sierra Mojada project in Coahuila, Mexico.

Metalline assigns Major Drilling Group International for the 20,000 meters drilling program in 2011. The drilling has started already and is likely to finish in the fourth quarter of 2011. The program consists of both10,000 meters of reverse circulation drilling and 10,000 meters of diamond drilling. The drill targets  the Northern and Eastern extensions of shallow silver resource of 'Area A’. ALS Laboratories will be analyzing the samples of this drill program.

Metalline has hired Geotech to conduct ZTEM airborne geophysical survey over 1,550 line km targeting the western half of the Sierra Mojada license . The airborne survey may begin by this week, and it may get complete within 10 to 14 days. The final results of this program are predicted to come out in May 2011.
