The necessary funding will be offered by Extractive Technologies. According to the present schedule, Western anticipates to commence the first exploration work before June 30th, 2011.

Western will obtain a part of the net smelter returns (NSR) for the production of gold and silver at the Silver Cord mine, besides the direct project cost. The location of Silver Cord mine is in the Black Canyon Mining area on the Turkey Creek’s east side in Yavapai County, Arizona.
