Field work at Crystal’s 100% owned Muskox, Contwoyto and Hood Project areas, located in Nunavut, Canada, has now been completed. The program identified and prioritized numerous targets for the potential discovery of new kimberlite(s) during 2017. The program included prospecting and mapping; till sampling (146 samples), rock sampling (1 sample at the James River Kimberlite Dyke) and 83.01 line kilometers of ground geophysical surveying at 17 land based targets. The samples have been sent to the Saskatchewan Research Council Analytical Laboratories (“SRC”) in Saskatoon for analysis. Results are expected in the fourth quarter (“Q4”), 2016.
Annual General Meeting (AGM)
The AGM is scheduled for September 19, 2016 where Crystal shareholders have the opportunity to re-elect current management and board of directors.

Timing on lab results are dependent on the capacity at the SRC.
