    The mineralization occurs in a brecciate chloritized pyroxenite
containing 10 to 15 % sulphide with section up to 30 %. The sulphide is
chalcopyrite, pyrrothite, pyrite and pentlandite. These sulphides appear in
stringers around pyroxenite fragments, as coarse blebs in the breccias matrix
and locally associated with sheared zone. From the first observation it looks
like the mineralization is from tectonic origin.
    "We anticipate that the current 90 km ground survey surrounding the
Laforce deposit will produce multiple geophysical target and these targets
will be tested in the next drilling program."
    Assay results from holes LF-07-24 to LF-07-35 are pending and will be
released as soon as the entire set of sample results from these holes are
    The assaying technique used is the industry standard for base metal
assaying, which uses nitric and hydrochloric acids that extracts nickel only
from sulphide mineralization and not from nickel silicate minerals.

    Quality control

    Assay samples are taken from drill core sawed in half with one half sent
to a commercial laboratory and other half retained for future reference.

    Qualified person

    The Temiscamingue projects are being supervised by Laurent Hallé P.Geo,
the qualified person for these projects.
