investor relations activities during the period; wages and benefits of
$310,947 (2006 - $422,887) for a decrease of $111,940 as a result of changes
in allocation in reporting salaries and wages from the previous period; and
stock-based compensation (a non-cash item) of $523,840 (2006 - $902,341) for a
decrease of $378,501 as a result of the fair value of options vested during

expenses included: exploration and business development costs of $210,006
(2006 - $169,058) for an increase of $40,948 as a result of increased
generative activities over the previous period; investment and other income in
the amount of $399,257 (2006 - $587,741) for a decrease of $188,484 as a
result of having fewer funds on deposit; foreign exchange (a non-cash item) of
$155,308 (2006 - $25,447) for an increase of $129,861 as a result of
conversion rates calculated primarily on foreign cash holdings and mineral
properties; the gain on sale of marketable securities of $26,532 (2006 -
$1,684,206) for a decrease of $1,657,674 as a result of the sale of a fewer
number of securities during the current period; the gain on sale of resource

Lone Pine property; write-down of marketable securities of Nil (2006 -
