    A 3,100 line kilometre VETM airborne survey was flown by Geothech Limited
of Aurora, Ontario to enhance and better define mineralized zones and
structures of the Coldwell Complex. The Michano Project contains copper
showings up to 0.75% and nickel showings up to 0.35% with anomalous platinum
(200ppb), gold (400ppb), chromium (0.11%), and titanium (5.39%) in the
vicinity along the Coldwell contact, in a similar geologic environment to the
Marathon PGM deposit.
    An extensive oxide (magnetite) gabbro unit in contact with the copper
showing has not been evaluated for PGE mineralization, and this is an
environment in which Marathon PGM and Benton have identified PGE values to the
east and northeast parts of the Coldwell. This is a showing that has seen
limited exploration over the past number of years and is contiguous with PFN's
claims along the West side of the Coldwell.
    Numerous sulphide showings containing lead, zinc and silver have been
identified immediately west of the Coldwell contact in mafic volcanics. Lake
bottom sediment sampling results in two different surveys have returned
distinctly anomalous palladium (10.3ppb), platinum (3.9ppb), copper (331ppm),
and chromium (40ppm) values in the immediate vicinity of the copper showing
along the Coldwell contact.
    The Coldwell hosts Marathon PGM Corporation PGE deposit of a
NI 43-101 Measured and Indicated resource of 81.4 million tonnes at 0.86gpt
palladium, 0.26gpt platinum, 0.09gpt gold, and 0.29% copper on the eastern
contact of the Coldwell Intrusive as well as the Benton PGE Bamoos occurrence
(drill intersections of 1.74gpt (3E (Pt,Pd,Au) with 0.28% Cu over 29.3m) (See
Marathon PGM Corporation's press release dated November 29, 2007).
