This new discovery of high grade massive sulphide minerlization is the result of 5 years of exploration following the discovery of similar grade massive sulphide boulders in a creek draining a small remnant glacier.

Exploration work is being conducted under the supervision of the Company's Qualified Person and Vice President, Exploration Jim Miller-Tait, P.Geo. All drill core samples have been sent to and were analyzed by ACME Analytical Laboratories Ltd. of Vancouver and the results from drill holes LJ-05-01 and 03 will be released as they are received.
