    Holes MR07-06 intersected disseminated and massive sulphides with
high-grade copper-nickel and platinum-palladium values. Intersections in Hole
MR07-01 included 7.00 metres (23.3 feet) grading 1.31% copper, 1.36% nickel,
0.02% cobalt, 0.27 grams/tonne platinum and 0.92 grams/tonne palladium.
Intersections in Hole MR07-07 included 3.60 metres (12.0 feet) grading 1.41%
copper, 1.12% nickel, 5 grams/tonne silver, 0.36 grams/tonne platinum and
0.80 grams/tonne palladium.
    At Midrim, mineralization typically consists of a number of gabbroic
sills with disseminated sulphides in the upper parts of the sills followed by
massive sulphide accumulations along the basal part of the sills. The massive
sulphides are comprised mainly of chalcopyrite, pyrrhotite, violarite,
pentlandite and pyrite. Native gold and platinum/palladium minerals have also
been identified in the sulphides.
    The Midrim Zone represents one of several outcropping
nickel-copper-platinum-palladium mineralized areas within the Company's
Midrim-Temiscamingue Project Area. Mineralization is hosted by magnetite-rich
gabbroic and subordinate ultramafic rocks. However, much of the
Midrim-Temisamingue area is covered by overburden and outcrop is scarce.
    The remaining results will be communicated as soon as available
    The Temiscamingue projects are being supervised by Laurent Hallé P.Geo,
the qualified person for these projects.
