Colin Kinley, CEO of Eco Atlantic, said, “We are pleased to announce the successful completion of this survey on the Cooper Block. We appreciate the cooperation of all of our Block partners on moving our exploration program forward, in particular AziNam who provided excellent field operations supervision for us. The Atlantic weather is a challenge early in the season and PGS easily handled this challenge to complete a high quality shoot on time. We are moving forward to processing and further progress our exploration program with our Block partners.”
