Inc. (the "Company") is pleased to report its audited financial statements for
the year ended December 31, 2006 with comparative figures for 2005. (Complete

For the year ended December 31, 2006, the Company had a net loss of
$928,898 or $0.03 per share compared with 2005's net loss of $473,144 or $0.02
per share. The granting of options under the stock option plan was valued
under the Black-Scholes method creating a $660,600 charge to expense in 2006
versus a $148,480 charge to expense in 2005, thus increasing the loss by
$512,120. Expenses, excluding stock compensation expense, were increased to
$637,757 in 2006 compared to $396,890 in 2005, mainly due to shareholders
communications, consulting fees, legal fees and corporate development as a
result of an overall major increase in corporate activities.
The Company has capitalized exploration expenditures in 2006 of
$1,305,135, with most of it being used towards the Magino Drill program. This
brings the total mining interest as of December 31, 2006 to $8,784,501.

$1,802,062 at December 31, 2005. In 2006 the Company received $1,103,733 from
the exercise of stock options and warrants plus net proceeds of $1,388,209
from the completion of a private placement in August 2006, off-set by the
allocation of $230,000 to restricted cash for mine closure costs, general and
administrative expenses of $576,082, mine care expenses of $51,057, and
exploration cash costs capitalized of $1,273,935.
For the three months ended December 31, 2006, the Company reported a net
loss of $69,209 or $0.01 per share compared to the three months ended December
