Dr. Petrick has been appointed as the first member of the Company's
Advisory Board. Dr. Petrick completed his Ph.D. from the University of
Utah in 1984. He has over 30 years experience in the Great Basin, and
has done some preliminary 3D imaging on both Toiyabe and ZPG Projects.

the team and adds tremendous value to these projects."
ZPG and Toyiabe Projects
Permits have been obtained for the program at ZPG. It will encompass
three holes drilled to a depth of approximately 1000 meters each. We
have drill availability for the last week of September and we are
proceeding with that program first. The drill will then move
immediately to the Toiyabe property and a series of six holes will be
drilled there starting in early October. All of our soil sampling and
geo-physics point to specific drill targets.
Quest Lake Project
Our drill program at Quest Lake, Northwest Territories, under the
direction of Wes Raven (P.Geo), has commenced. A series of holes
designed to further explore our findings of last summer will be
completed over the next two weeks.
The Company is just finalizing its announced Private Placement that will
consist of issuing 10-15 million units at $.12 per unit to fund the
Nevada project. It expects to announce completion early next week.
