"The Palomar Lake Extension is a significant addition to one of the Company's highest priority properties in the West Timmins Camp and we look forward to the commencement of early stage exploration. The property is intersected by a splay off the Destor Porcupine Fault which is believed to be a major controlling structure for mineralization throughout the Timmins Camp," comments Company President, Richard Hughes. "The Company's strategy is to continue advancing its precious metal projects in the West Timmins along with its flagship property, the Michelle Silver/Lead/Zinc project, located in the Yukon Territory, which recently announced initial results from its 2009 summer/fall exploration program."

The Palomar Lake Extension property consists of six claims (76 units) located in the Keith Township of Porcupine Mining Division. The property is accessible by road and is approximately 70 km southwest of Timmins. Consideration for the property consists of $9,000. There is a 3% NSR, 1% of which may be purchased for $1,000,000. There is also 100,000 common shares payable upon completion of a positive feasibility study.

The Company's website is currently being redesigned and will have further information on each of the properties available in the near future.
