    The investor relations program will focus on shareholder communications

Maple Leaf and will also arrange for the preparation of an independent,
external research report (the cost of which is included in the payment to
Global). Both of these reports will be disseminated to more than
450,000 investors through Global's databases.
    Raymond Lai, Chairman, President & CEO of Maple Leaf sees the
commencement of investor relations efforts in Germany as a significant step
forward for the Company. Mr. Lai comments, "European investors are very active
in terms of supporting renewal resource projects. Our Xinjiang Yellowhorn Tree
Project is something that should be very exciting to European investors,
especially those in Germany which is the world's largest producer and consumer
of bio-diesel. Global's services should provide Maple Leaf and its projects
with the necessary exposure in the European markets to help raise some
awareness about Maple Leaf's listing on the Frankfurt Stock Exchange."
