About Firestone Ventures Inc.

Firestone Ventures Inc. is a Canadian-based resource exploration and development company with projects in western Canada and Guatemala, Central America. Since 2003, the company has assembled a property portfolio focused on zinc, gold and uranium. The company is fully financed and well-managed.

In 2006, the Company conducted a Phase One drill program at the Torlon Hill high-grade zinc (oxide) property in Guatemala and is planning a Phase Two program for Autumn, 2006. Results from the Phase One drilling included significant intersections of high-grade zinc, including zones which are exposed on surface.

A drill program is planned for September, 2006 at the Company's Sonora copper-gold prospect in Yukon Territory, Canada. The intrusive-related gold-copper target areas are within 40 kilometres of Sherwood Copper's Minto copper-gold project, currently in development.

Firestone Ventures Inc. also has a 100% interest in more than 110,000 acres of land in southwestern Alberta, Canada that is prospective for sandstone-hosted "roll-front" uranium deposits. An initial economic and exploration assessment of southwestern Alberta for sandstone-hosted uranium deposits was completed in 2005, and the Company is proceeding with surface exploration in preparation for a drill program.

The Company also holds the Morris gold-silver-antimony property, located 120 km west of Williams Lake, British Columbia, Canada. The Morris quartz veins contain abundant antimony, up to 32.7%, in addition to gold and silver. The price of antimony has increased dramatically over the past five years; it is used in batteries and in compounds as a flame-retardant in textiles, plastics and building materials.
