This news release does not constitute an offer to sell or a solicitation of an offer to buy any of the securities in the United States. The securities of the Company have not been registered under the United States Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the "U.S. Securities Act") or any state securities laws and may not be offered or sold within the United States or to U.S. Persons unless registered under the U.S. Securities Act and applicable state securities laws or an exemption from such registration is available.

This news release includes certain forward looking statements in respect to various issues including upcoming events. These forward looking statements are based upon current expectations which involve risks and uncertainties that could cause actual outcomes and results to differ materially. Mineral exploration is subject to a high degree of risk, which even a combination of experience, knowledge, and careful evaluation may fail to overcome. Exploration activities seldom result in the discovery of a commercially viable mineral resource. Exploration activities are also expensive. The Company will therefore require additional financing to carry on its business, and such financing may not be available when it is needed. The Company disclaims any obligation to revise any forward looking statements as a result of information received after the fact or regarding future events.

The TSX Venture Exchange does not accept responsibility for the adequacy or accuracy of this release.
