constitutes forward-looking statements. Forward-looking statements are
frequently characterized by words such as "plan," "expect," "project,"

statements that certain events or conditions "may" or "will" occur.
Forward-looking statements are based on the opinions and estimates of
management at the date the statements are made, and are subject to a variety
of risks and uncertainties and other factors that could cause actual events or
results to differ materially from those projected in the forward-looking
statements. These factors include the inherent risks involved in the

    Cautionary Note to US Investors - The United States Securities and
Exchange Commission (SEC) limits disclosure for U.S. reporting purposes to
mineral deposits that a company can economically and legally extract or
produce. The reader is cautioned that the terms "resource," "indicated" and
"inferred" are not terms recognized by SEC guidelines for disclosure of
mineral properties. Generally, "indicated" and "inferred" estimates do not
rise to the level of certainty required by SEC guidelines. The mineralized
material described above is not considered a "reserve" as that term is used in
the mining industry and in SEC disclosure guidelines. The Company must
undertake a feasibility study before it can estimate the value of the Marg
Deposit. U.S. investors are urged to consider closely the disclosure in our
Form 10-KSB, File No. 000-51068. You can review and obtain copies of these
filings from the SEC's website at http://www.sec.gov/edgar.shtml.
