The study will incorporate a thorough analysis of all aspects of the project and will incorporate information from extensive hydrological studies, water balance studies, fish and wildlife studies, as well general engineering studies, and will include a carefully considered closure plan.

Mr. Bruce Hooper, CEO commented "We are very pleased to have appointed a high caliber team to rigourously evaluate the development of the Johnny Lee deposit. The pre-feasibility study will support an application for a Mine Operating Permit, which we anticipate completing in 2015."

Mr. Jerry Zieg, VP of Exploration added, "The participation of high quality groups at the pre-feasibility level will assist our continuing efforts to define a project that reflects the values of our community, which is critical to a successful project.
