Six holes, including one wedge hole, have been completed on the 2009 planned $2.3 million, 15,000 meter diamond drill program which began in late March. The initial drilling is targeting the Brookbank Gold Deposit to expand the known resource on the west flank (3 holes) of the deposit, on the east flank (1 hole) and at depth below 1000 meters (1 hole + wedge hole). All 6 holes intersected the Brookbank target structure and the samples have been split and submitted to the laboratory for assaying. The drill program has been stopped to provide for a 10 day break for the Bradley Bros. drill crew and Ontex geological personnel and will resume by the 4(th) week of May.

Ken Reading, a very well regarded explorationist, has headed to the property to initially oversea the linecutting and soil geochemistry program being undertaken to the east of the Brookbank Deposit to delineate a new drill target originally prospected in the 1980's and more recently highlighted on the airborne geophysics. Mr. Reading's primary objective in 2009 will be to understand and help locate additional local structures on the property which host gold mineralization.

The Company is planning to substantially ramp-up exploration by mobilizing a second diamond drill and has recently added two experienced geologists to its field crew. This represents the most aggressive program to date for the Company as it continues to expand resources and drill the Brookbank Gold Camp.

John P. Thompson, P.Eng. and President of Ontex, a Qualified Person within the meaning of NI 43-101 has reviewed the data and contents of this news release. Armen Chilian, P.Geo., Vice-President of Exploration, is the Qualified Person who planned and is executing the exploration programs for Ontex.
