Inc. ("Pollitt" or "the Agent") on July 5th, 2010, which better reflects recent equity market conditions.

Under the advisement of Pollitt, new pricing has been established at $0.18 per Unit ("Unit"), each Unit now consists of one common share and a full Warrant ("Warrant"), where each Warrant is exercisable at $0.22 for one year from closing, resulting in proceeds raised of up to $5,000,000, and issuance of up to 27,777,777 Units.

The proceeds from the financing will be used for exploration activities on its Ontario and Quebec mineral properties, principally aimed at drilling on the Company's Akasaba project in Val d'Or, Quebec, and for general corporate purposes. A second drill rig is now on site at Akasaba.

The closing of the BPP is expected to occur on or about July 31, 2010, and is subject to the receipt of all the required regulatory approvals, including the approval of the TSX Venture Exchange. All securities issued pursuant to the offering shall be subject to a hold period of four months from the date of closing.
