2008 Drilling Program Commencing

Geological crews are scheduled to be mobilized on June 20th to commence the 2008 drilling program on the Company's Eaglehead Property located in the Liard Mining Division in Northwestern British Columbia. Funding from the above-noted financing will permit the previously announced 2008 - 15 drill hole program to be substantially increased. Company geological personnel together with several outside geological consultants who have reviewed data from the 81 drill holes completed to date on the property have all strongly recommended increasing the 2008 program.

The Company is well funded to initiate the 2008 drilling program with an excess of $2,000,000 cash on hand from the exercise of $0.15 warrants last fall and the current financing will permit a substantial increase of the 2008 drilling program. The proposed 2008 program is designed to increase potential mineral reserves throughout the Property and for drilling on several areas of the Property which have substantial potential that have not as yet been drill tested.

Additional and more detailed information pertaining to the Eaglehead Property may be obtained on the Company's website
