Agreement with Avasca

Avasca Inc. is a private mineral exploration company led by the well established Gold Group based in Vancouver, B.C. Avasca has the right to earn a 51% project interest by making exploration expenditures totaling $2 million and staged share payments totaling 400,000 units to Kaminak by December 31, 2011. Year 1 (2008) exploration expenditures are set at a minimum of $50,000. The letter of agreement is subject to regulatory approval from the TSX Venture Exchange. Share payments are subject to Avasca successfully completing an IPO by December 31st, 2009. Failure by Avasca to successfully complete the IPO will result in the return of the Property to Kaminak.

Nizi Creek Project

The Nizi Creek Gold-Silver Property comprises 867 hectares and is located 80 kilometres northeast of Dease Lake, British Columbia. Historical work outlined six main zones of high-grade gold-silver vein-hosted mineralization over a northwesterly elongate area 2 kilometers long by 1 kilometer wide. The Discovery Vein / Surprise Vein is the most advanced prospect on the property with previous chip samples yielding 27.09 g/t Au plus 1220.6 g/t Ag over 2.0m and 15.09 g/t Au plus 1073.2 g/t Ag over 3.5m. Minor drilling on this zone in the mid-1990's confirmed surface assays and yielded 5.68 g/t Au over 13.77m and 3.54 g/t Au plus 27.21 g/t Ag over 6.1m.
