("DMZ"), and intersected multiple mineralized zones, including 17.30
metres of mineralization averaging 2.62 GPT contained gold.

-- Drill hole CJV-742 is an infill drill hole on the DMZ, and intersected
multiple mineralized zones, including 10.40 metres of mineralization
averaging 4.49 GPT contained gold.

-- Drill hole CJV-746 is an infill drill hole on the DMZ, and intersected a
mineralized zone of 8.80 metres of mineralization averaging 8.26 GPT
contained gold.

-- Drill hole CJV-755 is a drill hole on the Place Valley Zone (PVZ), and
intersected multiple mineralized zones, including 4.00 metres of
mineralization averaging 5.73 GPT contained gold.

-- Drill hole CJV-756 is a drill hole on the Place Valley Zone (PVZ), and
intersected a mineralized zone of 7.80 metres of mineralization

DMZ: Dachang Main Zone - A continuous approximately 4 km long zone of
mineralization that includes the original 2km long zone of mineralization
defined by the 2006 DDH program and the Dachang Main Zone Extension
(originally called the DMZ-X) that extends off the eastern end of the DMZ as
defined by the 2007 and 2008 DDH programs.

PVZ: Placer Valley Zone - A south dipping mineralized fault 1 km south of
the DMZ.

Assay cut-off for the above table was at 0.5 gpt Au, however, intervals were
determined by geological interpretation of consistent mineralized zones.
Broader intervals may include waste intervals of up to 2m. There was no
evidence of nugget effect and none were topcut. True widths for the
intervals above have yet to be determined.


The Company is operating seven drill rigs at Dachang and further results from in-fill drilling as well as step-out exploration drilling will be reported as they are received and compiled.

Infill holes are testing continuity of the Company's existing NI 43-101-compliant inferred resource area on the total 4 km extent of the Dachang Main Zone. Infill drilling is also a required step towards applying for a Chinese mining permit.

Sample Methodology:

Drill core samples were taken at geologically significant intervals, typically over one metre. Core recovery was approximately 90%. The designated sample intervals were cut with a diamond saw by qualified technicians. One half of the cut core was selected for assay with the remaining half being placed back into the core box. Care was taken to ensure that neither half of the core represents a bias with respect to the nature and mineral content of the sample. The sample interval and methodology are consistent with industry standards. Drill core samples were shipped to SGS Geochemical Laboratories ("SGS") located in Kunming and Tianjin, China for sample preparation and 50g fire assay with AA finish. SGS is the world's leading inspection, verification, testing and certification company. Analytical work is performed in accordance with recognized standards such as ASTM, ISO, JIS, and other accepted industry standards. Accuracy of the results is tested through the systematic inclusion of reference samples and duplicate samples.

Security of Samples: All of the samples collected at Dachang are stored in a restricted secure storage area. Samples are shipped by truck to Golmud and delivered to Inter-Citic's courier agent in Golmud for shipment to the various laboratories for analysis. Inter-Citic's courier agents are present at all transshipment points between Golmud and the laboratories. Exploration at Dachang was conducted with the assistance of the numerous professionals from the Qinghai Geological Survey Institute, working in co-operation with Inter-Citic's technical team on site and supervised by Mr. Garth Pierce, Vice-President of Exploration.
