The Santa Gertrudis Gold Project

The Santa Gertrudis Gold Project (the "SG Property"), located 180 km north of Hermosillo, Sonora, Mexico, was discovered in 1986 and advanced to open pit heap leach production in 1991. From May 1991 to October 2000, the SG Property produced 564,000 ounces of gold at an average grade of 2.13 grams per tonne. Phelps Dodge sold their part of the SG Property to Campbell Resources Inc. in 1994 for US$10 million. Campbell continued mining and later ceased mining and processing activity due to low gold prices during the late 1990's and settled some outstanding debts by assigning several core area concessions, including the un-mined Cristina deposit, to certain local Mexican contractors ("Lopez-Limon"). The proposed transactions aim to re-consolidate these concessions, which will allow for a district-wide exploration program. Other mineral properties that are part of the SG Property package include the relatively high-grade Amelia Mine and recently staked ground to the west, northwest and southeast of the SG Project's historic workings. The Company will own directly, or have options to earn-in on, a combined holding of approximately 32,600 hectares in the SG Property (125 square miles).
