Asia Now Continues Aggressive Drilling At Beiya North, China

Asia Now (TSX-V: NOW)

Bad weather, the worst in half a century, reeked havoc across China for weeks this winter. The Yunan province where Asia Now is drilling its Beiya North property was brought to a halt with snow and freezing rain. Lack of power, fuel and supplies caused the company to delay its drilling program. Drilling is back on track with three drills turning to expedite the program.

Drilling is now expected to be completed in mid-March and assay results should be following in April.

The Beiya property has shown potential to hold a large gold and base metal ore deposit and the company is happy to be back on track and catching up.
