    Prospecting by the Optionor has located several malachite stained mineral
showings on the Honeymoon property that carry copper and silver values. Grab
samples from four of the showings were assayed by the Optionor and found to
carry copper values ranging from 0.62% to 0.86% copper with elevated silver
values ranging from 5.88 to 35.3 g/tonne. Petrographic studies completed by
Acrex's geologist show the mineralization, comprised of chalcopyrite and
pyrite, occurs in a metasedimentary rock and may be of syngenetic origin.
Syngenetic suphide deposits found elsewhere in the world have large tonnage
    The company is currently planning an exploration program to assess this
large property that will initially focus on investigating the recently
discovered copper mineralization. The program will consist of geological
mapping, geochemical sampling and geophysical surveying. Where warranted,
targets will be further tested with a program of trenching and diamond
