    DRILL PROGRAMME 50% COMPLETE

    The drill program is over 50% complete. The single biggest difficulty
associated with the drill program progress has been the extremely variable
rock condition in all the holes encountered so far. The drill programme is now
expected to be completed by February 2008.

    DELAY IN ASSAY RESULTS FROM SA LABORATORY.

    Significant delays in the turn-around time of assays to the company have
largely been attributable to a breakdown in the ICP-OES (Inductively Coupled
Plasma - Optical Emission Spectrometer) machine used by an internationally
accredited laboratory in Johannesburg S.A. The parts for the ICP have been
couriered from the United Kingdom and the machine is finally operational.
Unfortunately, huge backlogs of samples have resulted, including ICS samples.
The laboratory has informed ICS that it is installing a new ICP machine in
part to handle the backlog of samples that have resulted from this unfortunate
breakdown. This new unit will be operational in the first week of December.
    The laboratory has also informed ICS that its sample results would be a
priority. As such the lab is sending the ICS's backlogged samples to some of
its other international affiliated laboratories to accelerate the assay
results turn-around. The lab manager assured the Company that the backlog
would be totally eliminated within 3 weeks. Graham Chisholm CEO of the company
comments "It is pleasing to see the high grades of Copper in Road 5 and to see
the presence of Cobalt recorded in these assay results. As further assays come
back from the lab, we expect to see additional intersections of Cobalt and
Copper."
