All samples are tagged, bagged and shipped to Laboratoire Expert Inc., Rouyn-Noranda, where 30 gram pulp samples are prepared and assayed for gold (FAA). Gravimetric assay repeats (FA) have been completed on samples with grades over 1.0 g/t Au. A strict QA/QC program including random insertion of blanks, standards, and duplicate samples has been followed throughout the sample preparation. The NQ-size core is logged, sampled and split in two at the company's core shack in Rouyn-Noranda.

The Galloway Project

The Galloway Project is a major gold project located in the Dasserat Township, less than 30 kilometers from the mining camp of Rouyn-Noranda, Abitibi. Composed of 3 mining concessions, 52 claims and 35 lots, with a total area of 2,285 hectares, more than 3km long directly on the prolific Cadillac-Larder Lake deformation zone. The western extension of the Francoeur shear (Francoeur Mine, Richmont) also crosses much of the property.

The Galloway area is now identified over a distance of about 400m, a thickness of up to 250m and to a depth of 300m. Efforts will be made in future drillings to join the Perron showing 500m west and the Hurd showing 800m east into the Galloway area. The disseminated mineralization is contained in and blocks and lapilli tuffs and also in the Renault Bay syenitic intrusion.

Mr Jeannot Theberge, consulting geologist and Qualified Person under NI 43-101, has supervised the field work. Mr. Theberge has read and approved this press release.
