    About Atomic Minerals

    Tanzania

    Atomic has a letter of intent with Geo Can Resources Company Ltd. ("Geo

100% interest in a land package totalling approximately 3800 square kilometres
located in the United Republic of Tanzania (the "Property"). The Property is
located in south-western Tanzania and is considered to be part of the "Malawi

mine. Other mining companies exploring in the area include Mantra Resources
