    These holes were drilled vertically. Drill hole LF-07-08 and LF-07-09
were located approximately 20 metres NNE and 25 metres North of previously
released drill hole LF-06-04. Drill hole LF-07-10 was located approximately
35 metres NNE of previously released drill hole LF-06-04. The diamond drilling
location map is accessible on Fieldex Website at

    The mineralization occurs in a brecciate chloritized pyroxenite
containing 10 to 15 % sulphide with section up to 30 %. The sulphide is
chalcopyrite, pyrrothite, pyrite and pentlandite. These sulphides appear in
stringers around pyroxenite fragments, as coarse blebs in the breccias matrix
and locally associated with sheared zone. From the first observation it looks
like the mineralization is from tectonic origin.
    Assay results from holes LF-07-11 to LF-07-17 are pending and will be
released as soon as the entire set of sample results from these holes are
completed.

    Quality control
    ---------------

    Assay samples are taken from drill core sawed in half with one half sent
to a commercial laboratory and other half retained for future reference.

    Qualified person
    ----------------

    The Temiscamingue projects are being supervised by Laurent Hallé P.Geo,
the qualified person for these projects.
