    To date, the 48 holes drilled have intersected the structure containing
the mineralized zones. The continuity of the structure and the gold zones
contained herein are an important feature of the mineralization in the Harker
area.
    The success has prompted the management of the Company to continue the
diamond drilling program. One diamond drill will resume drilling on the
property to expand the gold zone to the east on 25 X 50 meter spacing.
