and includes data that has not previously been released to Solex. All new data
received from Eldorado will be verified by Solex's Qualified Person prior to
public disclosure.
    Solex has contracted ACA Howe International Limited ("Howe"), an
international geological and mining consulting firm, to provide analysis of
the data and a thorough re-evaluation of all work conducted by Frontier
Pacific during the years of 2006, 2007 and 2008. Howe will test the

    About the Macusani East Project

    The Macusani East project is joint-ventured with Eldorado Gold
Corporation. The Project contains 53 known uranium anomalies discovered in the
1970s by the Peruvian Institute of Nuclear Energy (IPEN) and consists of
72 concessions covering 47,820 hectares. On April 21, 2005, Solex entered into
a joint venture agreement with Frontier in which Frontier had the right to
earn a 50% interest in the project by spending US$4-million over five years as
the operator. Frontier fulfilled its obligations in just over two years and
subsequent to the acquisition of Frontier by Eldorado in 2008, Eldorado is now
a 50/50 partner on the project.
