The Company is currently assessing an exploration program to further define the 22 / 23 vein structures on the Pickle Crow project from surface to 300m depth.

The Company also wishes to announce that the Toronto Stock Exchange ("TSX") has informed the Company that it will review the eligibility of the common shares of the Company with respect to continued listing on the TSX. The TSX initiated its delisting review because the market capitalization of the Company has fallen below levels required under TSX rules. The TSX will undertake the review pursuant to its continued listing criteria. The Company will be granted 120 days in which to regain compliance with the TSX's requirements for continued listing. If the TSX determines that the Company's common shares should be delisted, the Company will consider alternative listing arrangements.

The Toronto Stock Exchange does not accept responsibility for the adequacy or accuracy of this release.
