    Robert Rodger, P.Eng., President of the Company, stated: "The results
indicate that the gold and silver values continue vertically above the 1300m
level. As is expected in gold veins, the zones pinch and swell. The sample
results at 2.9, 3.0 & 3.1m in the 8+40E Raise provide some indicatio of the
variations, while confirming high grade values. The overall evaluation of
these zones will be undertaken when all of the results have been received"
    The underground exploration program is under the supervision of Robert
Rodger, P.Eng., the President of the Company, a qualified person under NI
43-101. Sampling and assaying procedures are subject to a rigorous QA/QC
program, which includes insertion of standards and blanks for each batch of
samples. All samples were delivered in sealed packages to Eco-Tech
Laboratories in Whitehorse, YT for preparation and shipped by Eco-Tech to
their laboratory in Kamloops, BC for analyses. Samples that return values
greater than 900 ppb Gold (Au) by ICP were fire assayed for gold.
