There is no assurance that similar mineralization will be discovered on the Bolero property.

Historic Work on the Property

"Work in 1998 in the area of the newly acquired tenures by Homestake Canada Inc., including geological mapping and geochemical sampling, outlined stratigraphy prospective for Eskay Creek style mineralization (reference ARIS #25767). Nearby intrusions have alteration and other characteristics similar to those observed at the Red Chris deposit".

The acquisition agreement gives Bolero a 4417.02 hectare property package immediately adjacent to the southwest side of the Red Chris property. The newly acquired tenures are underlain by Upper Triassic age Stuhini volcanic and sedimentary formations that are the principal host rocks of the Red Chris deposit. Property border is approximately 5.5 km southwest of the Red Chris East Zone discovery.

The terms of the agreement are: cash payment of $20,000 CAD (including a $5,000 CAD non-refundable deposit) and the issuance of 175,000 shares of Bolero Resources Corp. upon exchange approval. Additionally, Bolero has a right of first refusal (ROFR) to acquire two additional property packages from the same vendor for $20,000 CAD (including an immediate $5,000 CAD non-refundable deposit) and 150,000 shares if Bolero Resources Corp. for 35 days. There are no NSR requirements on either of these transactions.

The Company is very excited by this opportunity to acquire a sizeable land position adjacent to Imperial Metals' still evolving, possibly world class, Red Chris exploration property.
