As part of the Company's initiative to progress towards initial gold production, the Company is also pleased to announce that it has contracted consultants for environmental, social, metallurgical, and mine development studies for the Pinaya project. Vector Engineering has been engaged to commence a ten month environmental baseline study and is expected to submit an environmental impact study to the Peruvian Ministry of Mines by the end of the year. Social Capital Corporation has been contracted to conduct social and economic impact studies of the region surrounding Pinaya in anticipation of mine production. The environmental and social studies are required by the Ministry of Mines to apply for mining permits. Lastly, Minefill Services Inc. has been engaged to conduct initial mine design and to assist and direct metallurgical studies required for a Scoping Study which is expected to commence by Q2 2007.

Drills are currently turning on the Pinaya project with the objective of significantly adding to the resource already defined within the Western Porphyry and Gold Oxide targets and extending the area of mineralization. These two main zones have a known lateral extent of 1,500 by 450 meters of which approximately 50 percent of the area has been drill tested to a vertical depth commonly less than 200 meters. Of the 22 holes completed since the September 2006 resource estimate, assay results of eight holes (PDH-071-078) were announced November 15, 2006. These eight holes will contribute to the initial resource estimate. Assays from the remaining 14 drill holes are currently being reviewed and will be released shortly.

The Company is compliant under National Instrument 43-101 for the Pinaya project. Jeffrey Reeder, P.Geo, is the qualified person responsible for the exploration program at Pinaya and is supervising the quality control and quality assurance program. A quality control program of standards, blanks and duplicates is maintained.
