(also accessible on the Company's website www.goldstake.com) for full details
on this project. The report includes a statement that "recent drilling and
geophysical exploration (2003-2005) has shown that this project has
significant copper-nickel resources, which remain open at depth and along
strike.
    Historic (Pre NI 43-101) and previously announced estimated resources on
Prospect "D" include:
    1.53 million tons at 0.25% Ni, 0.62% Cu over an average width of 28 feet

    Robert Cleaver, Goldstake Chairman, states that Goldstake will receive
cash and shares in the new company (numbers to be determined) for its 50% of
the project, and the new company will raise sufficient funds to progress this
property to produce a feasibility study and pay for environmental and mine
permitting costs if viable. There will be an entitlement to Goldstake
shareholders to purchase shares in the new company. The spin-off will enable
Goldstake to retain a major interest in the project, and will allow Goldstake
to concentrate more fully on developing its North American properties.

development company with a diversified portfolio of precious and base metals,
