On July 27, 2006, the Company completed its initial public offering of securities (the "Offering") which was fully subscribed for gross proceeds of $2,000,000. The following summarizes key information contained in the interim financial statements and MD&A both of which can be found on the SEDAR website at http://www.sedar.com.

During the quarter ended September 30, 2006, the Company had a net loss of $653,342 ($1,414,142 year to date) and a working capital surplus of $1,129,896. With the completion of the Offering as well as exchanging debt for shares, the Company became working capital positive during the quarter. The debt exchanged for shares was an amount due to a company under common control that funded the operations of the Company to date. On the date that the Company completed the Offering, the Company also exchanged 5,090,144 units for $2,036,057.59 of debt outstanding at that date. Each unit consists of one common share of the Company and one-half of one common share purchase warrant. Each whole warrant entitles the purchaser to acquire one common share at an exercise price of $0.50 until January 27, 2007 and at a price of $0.60 until July 27, 2007.

The Company has completed the drilling of 18 of 23 core holes of its 2006 Phase 2 diamond drill program on its properties located on the western outskirts of Rossland in southeastern British Columbia. Assay results have now been obtained on 11 of the 18 core holes drilled to date. These results have previously been disclosed in press releases dated October 10 and November 20, 2006. Mr. Frank Marasco, President and Chief Executive Officer of the Company, commented, "I am extremely pleased with the progress made to date in the evaluation of our mining property in British Columbia and am encouraged by the results. With the completion of our initial public offering of securities in July, the Company has the platform to continue its evaluation of the property into 2007".
