Basic Shares: 50.6 million


Asia Now has spent the past months painting a geological picture of its Habo property through extensive technical mapping, which outlined the targets for a ten thousand meter drill program that is now underway.

An outside expert, Dr. Anthony Harris, was called in from Australia as a specialist in porphyry copper ore deposits. Under his recommendation, a large mineralization zone has been targeted as NOW looks to prove a deposit in an area that is 2,500 meters long by 1,300 meters wide. Dr. Harris is one of many world class geologists that believe that the Habo property will produce multiple high grade porphyry copper-gold-molybdenum zones.

In China, finding an experienced drill team is always a challenge. Asia Now has its bases covered and has hired a specialized drill team that is capable of angled drilling to ensure the "hot" zones are all thoroughly explored.
