Based on this drilling seven mineralized zones were indentified and included in the inferred resource estimates. The above estimates are based on the computer-based 3D modeling of the various zones outlined by the drill hole intersections, with a cutoff grade of 1 g/t Au. The resource blocks included projection of the mineralization 50 meters away from the known drill hole intersections, down-dip, along strike and up to surface. The results of the additional drilling at Labuziaka and Yidi in 2007 showed that continuous veining and mineralization exists between Labuziaka and Yidi for a total strike length of 1,500 meters in a north-south direction and the mineralization is still open along strike and to depth. Recent sampling of adits at Jilli Fu and Xiakanmuchang investigated the earlier artisanal workings in these areas. Rock chip samples using hammer and chisel at approximately 1 meter intervals were collected along the floors of the adits. Assay returns confirm the presence of in situ gold mineralization with the most significant values coming from the Jill Fu adit returning continuous gold mineralization along a strike length of 130 meters grading 5.12 g/t Au with an average width of 1.0 meter. The vein structure at Jilli Fu is described as being vertical and striking north-south. The mineralization at Xiakanmuchang is flat and described as a mineralized breccia. Sampling of the floors in this area may not be representative of the gold mineralization, however, mineralization was present with gold assays as high as 4.60 g/t Au over 3.0 meters. The Company expects that the net proceeds of the recently announced $1,250,000 private placement of convertible debentures (see press release dated July 3, 2008) will enable the Company to carry out a diamond drill program to investigate the frequency, width, and continuity of the mineralization at Jilli Fu, Xiakanmuchang as well as to follow up on the extensions at Labuziaka and Yidi. The drilling programs were undertaken by Huafeng Drilling Co. Ltd. of Chengdu, using modern Atlas Copco CS1000/P6 and Longyear LF90 rigs. Conventional fire assays were carried out at the ALS Chemex Laboratory in North Vancouver, B.C. which is certified to ISO 9002 standards or higher and the Quality Assurance System standard, ISO 17025. Chip samples were prepared at ALS Chemex Laboratory, where the prep facilities and procedures were inspected and approved by the ALS Chemex personnel. QA/QC programs using internal and external standards, duplicates and blanks indicate good accuracy and precision to the assays.
