"In spite of the recent depressed state of the junior exploration sector, we think it is critical to maintain positive momentum on our potentially world class Beatons Creek and Marble Bar gold projects in Western Australia," commented Dr. Quinton Hennigh, President and CEO of Novo Resources. "Ongoing drilling continues to expand the extent of gold mineralization at our Grants Hill target. Two new nearby targets, Golden Crown Hill and Ronkies Reef, will also be tested by year's end. We eagerly await return of all remaining gold analyses from the current drill program at which time we will determine if the data support a resource."
