    The Barry property is located in the Urban-Barry belt, approximately
65 kilometres south-east of the Bachelor Lake Mine where Metanor is presently
working to rehabilitate the surface installations, including the Mill and the
tailings. The Barry I Property consists of 14 claims covering 224 hectares
from which only six claims were included in the December 12, 2006 agreement
with Murgor. The Barry I property is further surrounded by the Barry United
Property comprising 192 mining claims covering an area of 3,052 hectares.
    The Gold Resources for the Barry deposit were re-evaluated by Systèmes
Géostat International Inc. in compliance with NI 43-101 and are now estimated
with a 2 g/t Au Cut-off at:


SOURCE CATEGORY TONNAGE GRADE (g/t) CONTAINED GOLD ------------------------------------------------------------------------- Indicated Resource 385,000 mt 4.23 g/t Au 52,300 oz. Inferred Resource 966,000 mt 4.07 g/t Au 126,600 oz. ------------------------------------------------------------------------- This new resource evaluation is incorporating all recent drill results performed by Murgor (summer 2006) and is extending the mineralized zones almost 300 meters in a southwesterly direction (Press release of may 8, 2007). Resources of the Barry Gold Deposit were significantly boosted after this re-evaluation where Indicated Resources rose nearly 50 % as compared to the 35,500 oz Au previously and Inferred Resources rose nearly 90 % as compared to the 67,600 oz Au previously. In addition, an extensive stripping program is underway that should contribute to extend mineralized zones and increase these resources. The Nelligan property consists of 58 claims totaling approximately 2895 ha located immediately to the west of Bachelor property. During a prospecting and mapping program carried out by Murgor in 2006, assay values of 582 g/t Au over 0.53 m and 3.15 g/t Au over 3.0m were obtained from channel sampling of a sheared and mineralized horizon similar to the Vein A at the Bachelor Mine. To exercice its option, Metanor will incur aggregate exploration expenditures in the amount of $450,000 over three years on the Nelligan Property. The property is subject to a 2% NSR Royalty from a previous agreement.
