    To date, the 43 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 is actively drilling on the
property since July 25 to prove the gold zone to the west and east on 25 meter
spacing. Channel sampling of the surface exposure of the vein is completed and
has been evaluated.
