    Interpretation of the northern portion of the ground induced polarization
(IP) survey is now complete and has identified two significant anomalies for
drill testing. The eastern IP anomaly is modeled to be approximately 800
meters long and between 130 and 250 meters wide. The nickel - copper - cobalt
massive sulfide mineralization intersected by previous drilling by Cantex on
Suwar Hill appears to be an extension of the eastern IP anomaly.
    The western anomaly is modeled to be 600 meters long and between 150 and
300 meters wide.
    This first NQ (47.6mm diameter) core hole is designed to test the depth
extent of the mineralization previously discovered at Suwar Hill. It is being
drilled at -70 degrees to a depth of up to 1,000 meters. Upon completion of
the hole a down hole electro-magnetic (DHEM) geophysical survey will be
    Subsequent drilling with the large Logan drill rig will test the northern
portions of the eastern IP anomaly. Cantex's man-portable core rig will
shortly be mobilized to Suwar to commence testing the less accessible western
