Orko Silver - Five Year Safety Record - 2004 to 2009
We are pleased to announce that Orko Silver Corporation completed a 5-year period without a single man-day lost due to accident. Commencing in 2004, through to 2009, Orko conducted geological, geophysical, geochemical and diamond drilling programs, which included 154,000 metres of drilling. This exploration lead to the discovery in Mexico of "La Preciosa", one of the World's largest new silver-gold deposits. We salute the management and technical field teams of Orko for their dedication to a safe work environment and exploration success.
Community Relations - Reforestation Program for La Preciosa
As a part of Orko Silver Corporation's ongoing community relations program, Orko is embarking on a "Campañia de Reforestacion -- Proyecto La Preciosa" (Reforestation Campaign - La Preciosa Project). This involves working with the local communities in six of the villages around the La Preciosa mine-site to plant trees in their central squares and children's playgrounds. This part of Durango State is semi-arid, so water resistant tree species have been chosen. Children from the community participate in the planting, which will instill in them a sense of ownership and belonging to this reforestation effort. The smiles on the faces of the children are also very rewarding.
