Four holes (C-10-26, C-10-27, C-10-28 and C-10-29) were drilled into the Main Zone and one hole (C-10-32) was drilled into the East Zone. The principal purpose of these holes is to continue filling the gaps between well-mineralized historic holes to both confirm and expand the historic resource of the Deposit to NI 43-101 compliant standards.

Drill hole C-10-26 was drilled at 170°/-47° to a depth of 306.8 metres, C-10-27 was drilled at 156°/-47° to a depth of 233.78 metres, C-10-28 was drilled at 156°/-52° to a depth of 377.4 metres, C-10-29 was drilled at 156°/-53° to a depth of 453.24 metres and C-10-32 was drilled at 335°/-50° to a depth of 331.32 metres. All intervals are represented as down hole core lengths. True widths are estimated at 70-75 percent of core length.

Both the Main and East zones were also drilled during Foundation's 2010 winter drill program and results from drilling in these zones were previously reported on March 29, April 6, and 21 2010. Results from the initial three holes of the current program were reported on July 20, 2010. These three holes were drilled into the North (C-10-23) and Main (C-10-24 and 25) zones.

To date, all of the 2010 drill holes contain gold and the majority have intersected wide mineralized zones, and include multiple intersections of high-grade gold mineralization in variable core lengths. Gold is associated with disseminated pyrite and occurs within strongly sheared and hydrothermally altered (silica, albite, sericite, magnetite and hematite) mafic to intermediate metavolcanic and intrusive quartz-feldspar porphyry rocks.

The drill program is continuing and additional results will be released as they become available. Please refer to Foundations July 20, 2010 news release for Quality Assurance and Quality Control procedures.

Foundation has an option to earn up to a 70% interest in the Coldstream property from Alto Ventures Ltd. For more details regarding the Coldstream Property, please visit our website at
