The properties to be transferred by Freewest to Quest Uranium comprise Freewest's portfolio of uranium exploration properties and after such transfer, Freewest does not intend to be directly involved in uranium exploration. Freewest will retain rights to precious metals and base metals with respect to the George River property and the six other uranium properties.
