"Acquisition of the Destor West property marks a significant milestone for the Company as we have not previously engaged in exploration in the West Timmins Camp. The property is strategically located along the Destor Porcupine fault zone and is known to contain a number of historic hand trenches which will be the focus of preliminary exploration," comments Company President, Richard Hughes. "This acquisition adds a new dimension to an already diverse gold project portfolio, which has previously focused primarily on gold and base metal exploration in southeastern BC and in the prolific Klondike camp in the Yukon. Along with the newly acquired Destor West project, the Company's 2010 exploration plans will focus on our Clubine property in southeastern British Columbia, where drilling recently intersected visible gold and returned assays as high as 148.4 g/t gold, 203 g/t silver and 2.28% over 0.2 meters." 

The Destor West property consists of five claims of 75 units in Sewell and Hillary Townships in the Porcupine Mining Division. The property is accessible by road and is approximately 45 km southwest of Timmins. Consideration for the property consists of $70,000 and 600,000 shares, payable over three years. There is a 2% net smelter return payable, one-half (1%) of which may be purchased for $1,000,000.
