Temporary financing

The Company is in the process of securing a temporary financing with a Canadian chartered bank in the amount of $1.0 million. Such financing would expire on September 30, 2007 or at a date when the liquidity crisis is resolved.

The Company is currently evaluating the various financing options to pursue, without interruption, its exploration programs. However, there can be no assurance that the Company will be successful in securing such financing, in the event that it becomes necessary.
