(TSX VENTURE:AZG) (the "Company") announces that the Company has sold into the market 200,000 shares of Idaho General Mines Inc. that the Company had acquired on a property transaction in December, 2004. Approximately US$ 845,000 was received, and will be used for general corporate purposes.

"While we are happy to be long term shareholders of Idaho General Mines (listed on AMEX), and continue to hold 500,000 warrants at $0.80, we thought that now would be a good time to liquidate a portion of our holdings so as to better position ourselves to execute on our own corporate strategy," explained Matt Russell.
