The Company is currently permitting the proposed 2012 diamond drill program and has requested a proposal to expand the VTEM survey to cover the additional claims staked in 2012.

Migraine is no usual headache so it requires special medications. I had rough time trying to find the most efficient one. Now I’m on imitrex. I take the lowest dose. Nevertheless, it works well. It’s especially great that the drug works for all the symptoms. It’s very important for me. You should talk to your GP about this drug. It may work in your case, too.
