Scott-Wilson-Roscoe-Postle Associates have been using the Gemcom Whittle software program to determine open-pit potential for the properties and in doing so is using lower cut-off grades. In a subsequent news release all values associated with the extended core analysis being used by Scott-Wilson will be released. Although delays have occurred in the development of the model, the Company is optimistic that their NI-43-101 report will be available before too long.

After a program of stripping and channel sampling, drill targets are being realized for the Dumico property. Drilling is also being planned for the Central Duparquet property which has a historical estimate of 574,000 tonnes averaging 5.10 g/t Au (Geospex Ltd, 1990)

The Company has been informed by the optionors of the Beattie-Donchester-Dumico gold properties that while they and the Company are re-negotiating the terms for new agreements, the Company has been granted an extention of the existing conditions. Payments are now deferred to June 1, 2010 and June 1, 2011 in order to earn a 100% interest in the former gold producers.

The Company is pleased to announce that it has been granted the right to ship up to 100,000 tons of tailings and material from auxiliary dump sites to the smelter. Metallurgical studies are currently underway at Queens University and various smelters in the area. All proceeds will accrue to the Company. The major tailings field is currently under re-examination and analysis by Genivar and a NI-43-101 compliant report now is due by month end.

Under direction of Roscoe-Postle overseeing the QA/QC Program, the Company's geological team has been following their protocols since February 2009. Cores are sawed in half in a secure location with one-half of the cores being bagged and sent to either ALS Chemex Chimitec at Val d'Or, Quebec.or Technilabs of Rouyn-Noranda, Que. Samples are delivered on a daily basis directly to the labs by authorized Company or Lab personnel. The samples are assayed using fire assay with either AA or gravimetric finish (50 gram). Any assays over 3.0g/t Au are assayed using gravimetric finish. At least 5% of the pulps and 5% of the rejects are sent as check samples to another lab. At least 10% of the samples are blanks or certified reference standards. Approximately 2% of the samples are being quartered and sent as check samples. By doing the above the Company is assured of good quality sampling and assay results in keeping with regulatory reporting requirements.
