The geologic mapping, geochemical sampling and geophysical surveys conducted by HDG identified the Big Pit area as their primary focus of exploration during 2006-2008. Mineralization occurs along low-angle and structurally complex rocks similar to those being developed at El Chanate mine, 25 km southeast of the Big Pit area. Rock chip sampling identified an area of exposed gold mineralization covering an area roughly 200 m by 375 m in size. Within this exposure HDG collected a total of 143 samples in the form of continuous chips of lengths varying from 1 to 5 m and as area samples covering 3 by 3 m. The average of all samples collected from the exposed zone average 1.20 gpt with a high of 8.95 gpt over 4.6 m in outcrop. In October 2007, HDG initiated a 5,000 metre core drilling program to test the three target areas that were identified in 2006. In addition three trenches were excavated to expose mineralization in the Placer target area. The drill program was completed in April 2008 with a total of 5,011.05 m of drilling in 33 diamond core holes.

Highvista initiated a rotary drilling program in October, 2010 to further evaluate and confirm mineralization in the Big Pit area, and to understand the limits of gold mineralization. A total of 1,147 m of drilling was successfully completed in December, 2010 and determined that there is potential for significant gold mineralization at the Canasta Dorada property.
