    (1) 1 g/t=grams per tonne.
    (2) Equivalent copper and gold calculations use metal prices of US$1.50
        for copper (Cu), $US 0.80 for zinc (Zn) and US$600/oz for gold (Au).
        Metallurgical recoveries and net smelter returns for all metals are
        assumed to be 100%. Equivalent gold = Au g/t +
        (Cu% x 33.07/19.29) + (Zn% x 17.64/19.29).
    

    Quality Control

    The NQ-2 core is logged, split with a core splitter, and sampled on site.
The maximum core length constituting a sample is 2 meters. One half of the
core is returned to the core box for reference. The samples are forwarded to
Acme Analytical Laboratories Ltd.'s facility in Smithers BC for preparation
and on to Acme's facility in Vancouver BC for analyses. Copper and zinc are
determined by ICP-ES on a 1-gram subsample as part of Acme's Group 7 AR
package. Gold is determined by fire assay preparation with an ICP-ES finish
using Acme's Group 3B procedure on a 30-gram subsample. "Overlimits" for gold
((greater than)10 g/t) are reanalyzed by a conventional 30-gram fire assay.
Acme reports results of its standards and re-analyses of samples. In addition,
the Company inserted its own set of commercial standards and blanks within the
sample sequence. All Quality Control results were found to be within an
acceptable range.

    Additional Drilling

    The 2008 field program has been completed and the drill demobilized.
