The record date for shares eligible to vote at the meeting is today, August 3, 2009.

Company President and CEO Steve Parent commented: "We have enjoyed a year full of progress, especially considering the economic difficulties faced by all companies this year. We owe a great debt of thanks to our shareholders who provided funding and support through these tough times. We are on target to achieve our goal of near term production as permitting and financing is advancing favorably."

CFO Dan Forbush commented in an interview with Wall Street Reporter in mid-July and the link attached to that interview was in error. The correct link is below.

1.  The Company's Independence Project has all the elements to be a company
    builder and exhibits many similarities to the Glamis' Picacho Mine
    which was the profitable property that started that company and
    provided the foundation of a very successful mining company which
    eventually resulted in a sale of the Company to Goldcorp for more than
    $50 per share.
2.  The Independence Project includes both a shallow and a deep component.
    The shallow mineralization appears to be amenable to low cost open pit
    mining and heap leaching.
3.  The Company's business plan is to become a mid-tier mining company
    using the Glamis model beginning with the Independence and acquiring
    other projects which will allow it to become a more than 200,000 ounces
    per year gold producer.
4.  We are progressing on the permitting to bring the project into
    production as soon as possible.
