was encountered, none of the zones tested proved to contain commercial
quantities. Kaybob S No. 1 well will be abandoned and pinpointing of the drill
for the Company's Bronson Property, Northern Alberta has commenced.

completed last winter, an existing geochem survey completed in July 2006, and
a newly completed geochem survey. The newest geochem survey was completed in
July 2007 and was conducted to pinpoint potential drill locations on the
Bronson property. The Bronson property will be a 50/50 joint venture as Austin

well with the Company being the operator.

located in Northern Alberta.
