April 12, 2010 – Vancouver, British Columbia. Indigo Exploration Inc. (TSX-V: IXI) reports that the 2010 drilling program on its Fredy Creek project has commenced. A 900 metre diamond drilling program will test coincident copper soil (MMI) and geophysical (Induced Polarization) anomalies.
Indigo Exploration Inc.’s Fredy Creek property is road accessible and lies 54 kilometres north of Williams Lake, British Columbia. Taseko Mines Limited’s producing Gibraltar porphyry Cu-Mo Mine lies 12.6 kilometres to the northwest of the Fredy Creek property.
