    1. Mineral resources which are not mineral reserves do not have
       demonstrated economic viability. The estimates of mineral resources
       may be materially affected by environmental, permitting, legal, title,
       taxation, sociopolitical, marketing or other relevant issues.
    2. The quantity and grade of reported inferred resources in this
       estimation are conceptual in nature and there has been insufficient
       exploration to define these inferred resources as an indicated or
       measured mineral resource and it is uncertain if further exploration
       will result in upgrading them to an indicated or measured mineral
       resource category.
    3. The mineral resources referred to herein have been estimated in an
       NI 43-101 technical report (the "P & E Report") prepared for the
       Company in January 2008 by independent qualified persons Eugene
       Puritch, P. Eng. and Dr. Wayne Ewert, P. Geo. of P&E Mining
