RESULTS AND ANALYSIS

For coherence, the results from the 23 diamond drill holes have been organized according to the section the hole was drilled on as opposed to numerical order and are depicted in Table 1 below. Please see the attached map for the collar locations and trace of each hole and the respective section the holes were drilled on.

The drill core samples were both HQ and NQ size and were cut in half by a diamond saw on site. Half of the core from one meter long samples was shipped to Groupe de laboratoire ALS MALI SARL, located in Bamako, Mali and analyzed for gold by fire assay on a 50 gram sample charge. Metallic screen assays were also performed on all samples from within the mineralized zone. Standards and blanks were inserted alternatively every 20 samples submitted to the laboratory for analysis.

"The release of these assay results marks the completion of AGG's Phase 1 infill program within the 1.2 km region we have denoted as "Zone 1." This exercise has consisted of approximately 20,000 meters of diamond drilling on 50 meter collars from 97 separate drill pads between section 15+50S thru section 29+00S, a distance of 1.35 km (See attached map). This initiative has demonstrated gold mineralization in virtually every hole and taken the resource beyond the known envelope encompassed by "Zone 1". Furthermore, this program continues to demonstrate that Kobada's regional limits are far from exhausted, as drilling to date indicates Au mineralization remains open along strike in both directions and at depth. A preliminary model of "Zone 1" will be constructed based on the data generated by the Phase 1 infill drill campaign just completed, as well as, the data contained within the historical data base.

Going forward, we are making plans for our anticipated resumption of drilling at Kobada during the second half of November, 2007. Our strategy will shift from the completed Phase 1 infill diamond drill program within "Zone 1" to a 25,000 meter RC drill program that is designed to step-out and explore the orientation and continuation of the productive structure over the remaining 11 km of Kobada's untested strike length. Future drill targets have been generated by the IP geophysical survey, which has generated a distinct signature of "Zone 1", with indications this distinct signature is persisting to the northeast and south-west along strike, to the physical extent of the IP survey to date. We feel these are very early days for AGG at Kobada, as we have only tested 10% of Kobada's strike potential and established a 1.35 km corridor that is demonstrating continuous mineralization, states AGG Chairman, Ben Adoo, C. Eng.
