Change of Business

As previously announced (see the Company's press release dated December 15, 2006 and subsequent press releases), the Company has entered into a letter agreement dated December 15, 2006 to complete a change of business transaction (the "Transaction") and recently executed a definitive agreement (the "Definitive Agreement") to acquire certain mineral claims known as the Marble Mountain property located in the Parkin Township in the Sudbury Mining District within the province of Ontario (the "Property") from John and Marie Brady of Sudbury, Ontario and with 1311870 Ontario Inc. (collectively, the "Vendors"). As consideration for the Property, the Corporation will pay the Vendors (i) $7,500 within 10 days of the execution of the Letter Agreement (paid); (ii) $17,500 and 150,000 Common Shares on execution of the Definitive Agreement (paid and shares to be issued immediately); (iii) $35,000 and 200,000 Common Shares on or before December 31, 2007; (iv) $50,000 on or before December 31, 2008; and (v) $145,000 on or before December 31, 2009. The aggregate consideration to be paid to acquire the Property from the Vendors consists of $255,000 in cash and 350,000 Common Shares of the Corporation. All shares issued to the Vendors will be subject to a hold period that will expire on April 7, 2008. The deemed value of the Common Shares to be issued to the Vendors will be determined in accordance with the policies of the TSX Venture Exchange.

Additionally, the Corporation will keep the Property in good standing by performing a minimum of $31,025 on the Property in eligible assessment work to be filed and approved by the Ministry of Northern Development and Mines each year, with the first annual work amount required to be completed on or before December 31, 2008. The interest to be acquired pursuant to the Transaction specifically includes metallic minerals on the Property, but specifically excludes quarry stone. Under the terms of the proposed Transaction, any royalty payments as a result of quarrying operations will be the Vendors' responsibility and the Vendors will be responsible for conforming to all quarrying, mining and environmental regulations with respect to quarrying operations, while the Corporation will maintain all environmental, legal and regulatory safeguards with respect to its activities on the Property. Under the terms of the proposed Transaction, the Vendors will retain a 2.5% net smelter return royalty (the "NSR") on the Property, with advance royalty payments of $10,000 payable semi-annually commencing June 30, 2010. The Corporation will have the option to buyout 1.5% of the NSR for $1,500,000 (the "Buyout Amount") and all advance royalty payments and regular royalty payments shall reduce the Buyout Amount on a dollar for dollar basis. In the event that the Buyout Amount has been reduced to $0 (as a result of advance and regular royalty payments), the NSR will be reduced to 1.0% with advance royalty payments to continue. Any royalty payments as a result of quarrying operations will be the Vendors' responsibility. The NSR will be calculated and paid pursuant to provisions to be agreed between the parties in the Definitive Agreement. In the event the Corporation completes any other business deal on the Property, the Vendors' NSR will not be affected and shall remain in effect on the Property.
