    Golden Lion Resources Ltd. ("GLR"), a company to be listed on the

capital stock and a 2% NSR royalty interest, as to 50% to each of Adansi and
Goknet, within 14 days of the listing of GLR on the ASX. This agreement is

    Douglas R. MacQuarrie, President and CEO commented: "With Golder
Associates currently completing their initial assessment of the mining
potential of our Kubi Gold Project and an initial resource estimate at our
Obotan Gold Project, only a limited program of exploration at Bankame and
Ofoase had been planned for 2008. We welcome this agreement with Golden Lion
that will allow them to maximize the discovery potential of the concessions,
and at the same time give PMI Gold a significant shareholding and royalty
interest in any discovery."
