About LKA's exploration program at its Golden Wonder Mine
Vein material is extracted as crews follow the volcanic vent system along the wall of the Uncompahgre Caldera. This method of exploratory mining and underground drilling proved successful in locating the first commercial ore body which yielded more than 133,000 ounces of gold from a single ore chute measuring less than 10,000 cubic feet. From 1998, through the second quarter of 2006, the average grade of Golden Wonder ore was 16.01 ozs. (454 grams) gold per ton. LKA believes that additional such ore chutes may exist on its mining claims. Upon resuming exploratory operations in the first quarter of 2009, LKA has extracted and/or shipped (sold) twenty-nine bulk samples of crushed vein material containing nearly 4,400 ounces of gold with a net value, after processing, of over $5 million. The Company continues to seek and evaluate financing options to expand/accelerate this program. Investors are cautioned that the Company continues to generate substantial losses and additional funding and exploration work is required. A commercially viable ore reserve has yet to be established and there can be no guarantee that the Company will be successful in this regard.
