(formerly Sandfire Securities Inc.) and Secutor Capital Management Corporation (collectively, the "Agents") (see the Company's news release dated April 29, 2010), pursuant to which an aggregate of 8,571,428 "flow-through" shares (the "FT Shares") were sold at a price of $0.35 per FT Share, raising gross proceeds of approximately $3,000,000.

Commented Ian Campbell, President and CEO "We are looking forward to the coming months ahead as we are well financed to carry out all of our planned programs and it promises to be an exciting year as we advance our precious metals projects in northeastern Ontario."

Each Broker Warrant entitles the holder thereof to acquire one common share of the Company at a price of $0.35 per share until May 17, 2012.

The securities issued under the Offering are subject to a hold period expiring on September 18, 2010.
