    The two seams of economic interest, Seam 1 and Seam 3, have been
intercepted at various depths in thicknesses ranging from 1.3 to 4.1 meters
for Seam 1 and 1.15 to 3.7 meters for Seam 3 (including Seam 3 Upper). Core
samples have been taken for all coal seams and all core from Seam 1, Seam 3
and all other seams meeting minimum thickness criteria will be sent to an
independent laboratory for coal quality testing. The drilling and coal quality
program is under the supervision of Owen R. Cullingham, P. Geo., who is the
Independent Qualified Person for reporting purposes as defined in NI 43 - 101

currently classified as Inferred to Measured or Indicated at the completion of
the drilling program.
