    The 2008 diamond drill holes have added to the understanding of the
plunge or rake of the mineralization east of the previously mined Consolidated
Louanna Gold zones. Management is encouraged with the results to date. Further
diamond drilling is planned as the mineralization is still open to the east
and west and to depth.
    All samples from the property were delivered to Accurassay Laboratories,
Thunder Bay Ontario. Accurassay is an ISO 17025 certified laboratory for assay
using standard fire assay with atomic absorption finish. Rejects and pulps of
the samples are stored at the laboratory in Thunder Bay.
    As part of its due diligence, and to determine if the current 30 gram
fire assay method is correctly reporting the gold content of the samples,
management has selected 25 core samples, from the 2007-2008 diamond drill
program that will be re-assayed after total cyanide extraction. This method of
analysis will be carried out on the reject portion of the original samples.
    The diamond drilling program, (in addition to the preparation of this
press release), are under the direct supervision and responsibility of Des
Cullen P. Geo and Garry J. Clark P. Geo. Both are Qualified Persons as defined
by National Instrument 43-101.
