The technology captures repetitive images detecting responses to the UV laser on mineralized fields (in this case, gold mineralization). These responses (or anomalies) are processed and mapped  to identify the volumetric intensity (grade level) and size of the various anomalies..

The satellite imaging covered 2,134 acres of the Company's 37,000 acres. The purpose of the imaging was twofold: (1) to confirm existing geology developed by Mr. David Burney, USPR's geologist through 2 drilling programs and on-site mapping and sampling, and (2) to identify further areas of potential interest, if any. The Company believes that both goals were achieved with this imaging program. The satellite imaging identified 27 gold anomalies, a number of which also showed high intensity levels. A total of 217 surface acres were identified by the 27  anomalies.  Mr David Burney, USPR's Geologist stated: "I am very pleased with the results of Phase l of the satellite imaging and surprised by the number of anomalies.  Many of the mineralized zones we have previously identified from mapping and drilling were identified by the satellite imagery as anomalies. The fact that the satellite imagery identified anomalies in known areas of mineralization creates a level of confidence in this technology."
