More assays are pending from this phase of drilling. These pending results could influence actual data.

Thirteen holes totalling 1,215 metres were also drilled on the North showing. Assays are pending.

All samples were prepared and assayed at Laboratoire Expert of Rouyn-Noranda. Samples are first assayed by AA (Atomic Absorbtion) then all samples grading equal or above 1 g/t Au were re-assayed by Fire Assay (FA). A QA/QC program comprising standards and blanks is being followed.

Current work is being done under the supervision of Daniel Kelly and Pierre O'Dowd, both geologists and qualified persons as per NI43-101. This press release has been reviewed and approved by Mrs. Kelly and O'Dowd.
