Southern Peru - the Company has received final government approval for the
staking of the claims from Peru's Ministry of Mines office in Lima, Peru.

campaigns. Senior Geologist Mr. Marco Fernandez-Concha will be preparing the

    The Pistala property is located east of the major NW-SE trending

copper mines extracting grades ranging from .3% to .74% Cu.
