Metallurgy

RPC continues metallurgical testing for the development of a process flow sheet for extraction of the copper and other payable metals at Chester copper-polymetallic feeder deposit. The feeder deposit is not a volcanogenic massive sulphide ("VMS") deposit. The deposit may average 20% sulphides with the remaining 80% composed of silicate minerals (waste rock). Therefore the metallurgical work also includes studies of viable pre-concentration processes to reject the waste rock before floatation and leaching. Such a pre-concentration process would produce a high value, multi-mineral, bulk sulphide concentrate of copper and the secondary metals indium, bismuth, cobalt, silver, zinc, lead and gold.

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. RPC independently monitors its analytical and metallurgical results. 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.

Chester Copper-Polymetallic Feeder Deposit

The copper-polymetallic 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 1 kilometer ( > 3,280 ft.). At the east end it lies close to surface and at its known western extent it is approximately 400 meters (1,320 ft.) below surface. The copper-polymetallic mineralization within the feeder deposit varies from low to high grade with one to three (or more) stacked, gently westerly inclined and northerly striking, sheet-like internal zones of higher-grade mineralization of variable thicknesses.

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.
