 Right Peter - really only John Tugak (and his daughter Corinne) is a significant land owner and he is our partner on the Turquetil MEA (known as Huckleberry 0002). We are flying and prospecting his other MEA's and claims as a due-diligence/assessment exercise to ascertain whether we'll also enter into agreements with the Tugaks on some or all of their properties
