Assay results are distance weighted averages. The samples above were assayed by Copperstate Analytical Laboratory in Prescott, Arizona. Samples are analyzed for Zinc by titration, Germanium, Gallium and Lead contents are determined using ICP methods.

Germanium values are generally higher in sulfide mineralization than in silicate or oxide material. Zinc values remain similar throughout the sulfide, silicate and oxide material.

Note that the complete drill hole and channel sample assay results can be reviewed on the Company's web site at www.wareaglemining.com. All the drill hole assay results will form part of the NI 43-101 report.

The Company will also be drill testing the Nacional target located some 200 meters southwest of the main mineralized zone on the 6th level. This zone was located by underground drilling and drifting by previous operators.

The Company is planning to complete surface exploration work on Targets 17, 18, and 19 before drill testing. Two of these targets are located approximately 500 meters NW & SW of the shaft with #18 being 3 KM NW of the shaft. A total of 87 exploration targets exist on the 100% owned Tres Marias project.

Based on a report by Gregory F. Smith, B.Sc., P.Geo. the potential exists for between 5,000,000 to 10,000,000 tonnes of mineralization on the Tres Marias Project.
