Gunpowder Gold Corp. issued an update on its exploration and development program in the United States. The company is actively looking for areas that are prospective for gold and other precious metals.

Gunpowder Gold has started the Phase One exploration program at the Dome Rock property located in La Paz County, Arizona. The company expects to have the first results from that program in April 2011.

Phase One involves several different processes to determine the mineral content of the property. Gunpowder Gold is conducting stream sediment sampling on different washes near the claims area, and will test the sediment samples for 34 different elements. The company will use the inductively coupled plasma test on the samples.

The exploration program will also obtain chip samples from each claim area on the property and assay these samples for gold content.

The Dome Rock property is approximately 1,280 acres and is composed of sixty two unpatented mining claims. The property is in the fairway of the Walker Lane Gold Trend, which has produced millions of ounces of gold and silver since being discovered.
