Ms. Beatrice Duque Montoya resigned as Director to pursue other interests. The Board would like to thank Ms. Duque for her contribution to the Company during the formative stage of our work in Colombia, and wishes her well in her new endeavors. We will maintain an office in Colombia to continue to monitor developments in Colombia for potential acquisitions in the future.

The Company also has expanded its activities beyond North and South America to business development activity in southeastern Europe, guided by the same criteria of seeking to identify for acquisition or joint-venture projects in historic mining districts that we consider prospective for mineral deposits, underexplored using modern mining methods and technology. We will consider in southeastern Europe precious metal, industrial mineral or energy-related projects.
