mining related talents of Maiden Resources, Inc. from the Coeur d’Alene

extracted in the area for more than one hundred years.  Maiden
Resources brings decades of experience in assaying, processing,
permitting, regulatory and safety matters in both underground and open
pit mining operations to Hondo’s team, Maiden will aid Hondo in
professionally evaluating the old Tennessee Mine with the idea of
exploring its underground ore reserves for possible mining ventures.

related management company, Advanced Natural Technology Services, Inc.,
was not renewed.

evaluating our operations and resources as to efficiency from both
processing and financial perspectives. Of course, we remain focused on
