This work has demonstrated the presence of a substantial body of molybdenite mineralization in an apparent modified "quartz veinlet stockwork" hosted by hornfelsed fine-grained sandstone and granodioritic intrusive rocks. - The Report recommends the further expenditure of approximately eight million dollars including the Continuation drilling with the principal objective being to increase the drill hole density to enable upgrading of the classification of resources from "indicated" to "measured" and from "inferred" to "indicated", and to explore the continuation of the known zone to both the northwest and southeast, and to obtain additional materials for use in metallurgical studies. - Commencement of a Preliminary Economic Assessment "scoping" study, preferably guided by a mining engineer, that will conceptualize the placement of an open pit or pits, and offer some forecasts of possible mining methods, capital costs, operating costs, markets for and marketability of products, environmental concerns, and social issues. - Additional work beyond the recommended work program will be largely contingent upon a positive Preliminary Economic Assessment of the property. It may be timely to proceed with work leading to a Prefeasibility Study complete with environmental studies, mine and process plant design work, water, power and transportation options, marketing strategies, community involvement and so forth. - Geophysical and geochemical technical surveys performed in the 2007 season will likely enable commencement of exploration in parts of the property other than the area currently being drilled. W.K.Crichy Clarke, President and CEO states "We are extremely pleased that our group has been able to define this resource in a remarkably short time. The receipt of this Report signifies a change in direction for our Company. The conclusions and recommendations put forward by the Authors are already underway. We continue to drill, we have engaged Moose Mountain Technical Services to conduct our Preliminary Economic Assessment and we have arranged for a third drill from Falcon Drilling, to start in once permits are received to explore the anomalies indicated by our IP Survey. Our activity level at Chu will only increase. We are well financed to start the recommended phases of the Report." The Company will continue to update shareholders on drill results and corporate developments. About TTM Resources Inc.
