About the Property Acquisition Transaction

Gunpoint and Jiulian entered into an agreement dated effective January 25, 2011 (the "Agreement") pursuant to which Jiulian will acquire certain mineral exploration properties from Gunpoint in the Kamloops and Nicola Mining Districts in British Columbia. The parties have since agreed to amend the Agreement. Pursuant to the amended Agreement, Jiulian will purchase a 100% interest in Gunpoint's Big Kidd and Little Fort claims groups (the "Acquisition"). The purchase price for these two groups of claims is a cash payment to Gunpoint of $100,000 and the issuance 1,875,000 common shares of Jiulian. Under the amended Agreement, there is no longer an option for Jiulian to purchase Gunpoint's Brassie Creek and Craigmont claims groups, as Gunpoint has decided to give up its interest in the Craigmont claims and Jiulian, based on a preliminary review, no longer wanted the option.
