Analytical results are currently outstanding on 62 drill holes from the Chester mineral resource definition drill program.

To review the previously reported results (June 20, 2007, April 25, 2007, April 5, 2007, March 1, 2007, February 8, 2007, January 24, 2007, January 17, 2006, and January 11, 2006) visit: www.uno.ca.

Sample analysis is being carried out by Activation Laboratories Ltd. in Ancaster, Ontario. Samples were analyzed on a Varian Vista Pro ICP for Cu, Pb, Zn, and Ag using a method to which Activation Laboratories is accredited (ISO 17025 and CAN-P1579) by the Standards Council of Canada. Certified Canmet Reference Standards and OREAS reference standards are used as controls. Quality Assurance also includes the analysis of blanks, pulp duplicates and preparation duplicates.

Drill Status - Summer 2007

The drill will be used to confirm continuity of the Chester mineralization as required during the preparation of the initial National Instrument 43-101 compliant mineral resource estimate; for geotechnical drilling to evaluate possible mine/mill infrastructure sites; and for exploration drilling to test one or more of the previously reported VTEM airborne geophysical anomalies on the Chester property.

QA/QC

Quality assurance and quality control (QA/QC) of the Chester NI 43-101 qualifying mineral resource estimate drilling, analytical, and surveying programs are being monitored by independent consultants Robert Sim, P.Geo. and Bruce Davies. Earnest Brooks, P.Geo., is the Company's Qualified Person on the Chester Project. Mr. Brooks was formerly a Mine Geologist at the Patino Mines Copper Rand Mines Div. in Chibougamau, Quebec, and a mining operations geologist and exploration geologist at the BMS mines, Bathurst, from 1975 to 1990.

About the Chester Feeder Deposit

Based primarily on the historical drilling results, the Chester Feeder Deposit is an east-west trending gently west plunging cigar-shaped mineralized structure within an alteration zone approximately 75 meters (246 ft.) or more in thickness and greater than 200 meters (656 ft.) in width. It extends west of the current area of drilling for more than 800 meters (2,625 ft.). At the east end it lies close to surface and at its known western extent it is approximately 400 meters (1,322 ft.) below surface. The targets of the current resource estimate drilling program are one to three (or more) stacked, gently westerly inclined and northerly striking, sheet-like zones of higher-grade mineralization of variable thicknesses within the cigar-shaped feeder structure.

The Chester property is located in the southern part of the Bathurst Mining Camp approximately 53 kilometers (kms) west of Miramichi City, and 72 kms southwest of the city of Bathurst, New Brunswick.
