pleased to announce that the Indian Ministry of Mines has approved the
Company's Mining Lease application on 386 Hectares at Askot and has returned

Vancouver.
    The Company is well funded and committed to exploration and mine
development in India. In addition to holding Askot and Gadarwara, it holds
