With regard to the Sandy Lake project, upon signing the exploration agreement with the Sandy Lake First Nation, an aggressive program of geological mapping and geophysics will be started, to be followed by diamond drilling during the winter season. The Gold Rock project is drill ready and a winter drill program is being formulated. The Sonia project in Chile is also drill ready and Goldeye is presently looking for a partner to continue the exploration of this property.
