    This news release includes certain forward looking statements in respect
to various issues including upcoming events. These forward looking statements
are based upon current expectations which involve risks and uncertainties that
could cause actual outcomes and results to differ materially. Mineral
exploration is subject to a high degree of risk, which even a combination of
experience, knowledge, and careful evaluation may fail to overcome.
Exploration activities are also expensive. The Company will therefore require
additional financing to carry on its business, and such financing may not be
available when it is needed. The Company disclaims any obligation to revise
any forward looking statements as a result of information received after the
fact or regarding future events.
