The Marg deposit consists of a series of continuous to discontinuous sheets of massive and semi-massive sulphide mineralization. The massive sulphide horizons are up to 23 metres thick and have been traced along a strike length of 1200 metres and up to 700 metres down dip. The horizons remain open to extension at depth and along strike. The resource classified in accordance with NI 43-101 is stated in the table below:

A new three-dimensional model of the Marg deposit will be constructed to assist with an updated resource estimate and economic evaluation in early 2007. This updated resource estimate will also include results from the 2005 drill program.

The Qualified Person supervising this drilling program and who has reviewed this press release is R. C. Carne, P. Geo. an independent consultant.

Clarification to Previous Press Release

In our press release of November 6, 2006 regarding drill results from the Marg Property, we inadvertently disclosed the sum of indicated and inferred resources when these categories must be reported separately as we have in this press release. We also unintentionally used the term "ore body". Mineral resources cannot be termed "reserves" or "ore" until they have demonstrated their economic viability which, in our case, we have not demonstrated this viability.
