Commenting on the ongoing activities, Eagle Mountain Mining's CEO, Tim Mason, said:

"With drilling continuing, we have concurrently launched several initiatives to continue to advance the Project. The mining contractor is currently on site refurbishing the underground mine, with the generator already delivered and installed and the electrical equipment currently being serviced with the ventilation fans to follow shortly thereafter. Our goal is to leverage the existing infrastructure to drill and sample underground. We are only two months away from driving our first underground rig through the Oracle Ridge portals.

Metallurgical studies have commenced to review and update existing information that we will need for the upcoming mining studies.

On the geological front, the team is currently mapping the historical workings peripheral to the Oracle Ridge mine and also fine tuning our drilling plans for OREX. "
