    Robert Rodger, P.Eng., the President of the Company, stated: "These
results show variability in grades along the zone but clearly indicate that
high grade occur with frequency, and that the Rainbow Two zone can be quite
wide in certain areas. Both the drift excavation and the sampling continue."
    The underground work program is under the supervision of Robert Rodger,
P.Eng., the President of the Company, a qualified person under NI 43-101.
Sampling and assaying procedures are subject to a rigorous QA/QC program,
which includes insertion of standards and blanks for each batch of samples.

Kamloops, BC for preparation and analyses. Samples that return values greater
than 900 ppb Gold (Au) by ICP were fire assayed for gold.
