About Savant

Savant is an exploration and development stage company focused on generating and exploring high quality precious and base metal properties in stable jurisdictions. Savant's current properties and assets are 100% owned with combined annual holding costs of approximately $30,000. Savant has a partner funding one of these properties, the wholly owned Yuby Gabriela copper property in Chile - the next option payment of US$500,000 is due to Savant at the end of April. In addition to the Yuby Gabriela property, the Company owns two other high-quality properties, Blue Moon and Yava that Savant's management is seeking to monetize for maximum value to Savant and its shareholders.

Savant's management is currently undertaking a focused, but low cost effort, to identify, review and assess high quality exploration and resource assets in favourable jurisdictions that have the ability to add value to the company and provide a springboard for future growth. The main objective over the next few months will be to diligently work through the review process and identify a new flagship project that can be acquired and financed as markets recover. An updated presentation on the company is available on Savant's website at
