Shareholders approved a special resolution authorizing an amendment to the Company's articles to consolidate the issued and outstanding common shares of the Company on the basis of one (1) new common share for each eight (8) common shares outstanding immediately prior to such consolidation (the "Consolidation"), and to change the name of the Company to "United New Klondike Exploration Ltd." or such other similar name as the directors may approve and is acceptable to the appropriate regulatory authorities, including the TSX Venture Exchange ("TSX-V").
