    About NGE

    NGE is an exploration company focused, through its wholly-owned Nevada
incorporated subsidiary Pediment Gold LLC, on gold exploration in Nevada. NGE
is led by a highly experienced and historically successful exploration
management team. NGE has developed a proprietary groundwater chemistry
exploration technology and is the first to complete a comprehensive and
consistently applied survey of Nevada's groundwater chemistry specifically
directed toward the discovery of new gold deposits. Management believes that
the results of NGE's groundwater chemistry program are significant in that
they are demonstrating that Nevada's known gold deposits exhibit recognizable
groundwater chemistry signatures. NGE has identified and acquired several
exploration properties with similar groundwater chemistry and is in the final
stages of testing whether such water chemical signatures can be followed "up
stream" to discover new gold deposits in much less time and for much less
money than the conventional exploration approaches currently used by other
exploration groups. NGE continues to refine and apply this technology to
identify, acquire, further delineate and then drill test its own highly
prospective exploration properties to return the maximum value of making a new
gold discovery to shareholders. NGE is also in a unique position to add value
to the Joint Venture opportunities presented by more conventional exploration
