Victoria mine returns first stockpile assay samples of up to 5% copper - 3 other stockpiles located

TSX-V, FRANKFURT - OUH, PINKSHEETS - CGWVF) has been informed by Kokanee
Placer (USA) Ltd. that initial samples taken have confirmed the high grade
nature of the oxide mineralization stockpiled by previous operator Anaconda
    As previously announced, CGW has agreed to fund the test mining operation
of the oxide mineralization including the permitting of the test in a side
deal with Kokanee and will receive 50% of the profits from the proceeds of the
test after recovery of its set-up and operating costs.
    Kokanee had 14 samples run on a priority basis to establish an idea of
the grade of the copper oxide mineralization Anaconda had stockpiled during
its mining operation at the Victoria Mine in Elko County, Nevada in the late
    Eleven samples were taken on a modified grid based on the complete
surface sampling program that was completed for SGS Lakefield's Laboratories.
Those samples which are at SGS will be used to conduct 'bottle roll' and
'column leach' tests to ascertain the recoverability of the copper in the

         20 S        5.0%    2 g/tonne        35 S         3.7%    2 g/tonne

    The median value is 2.4 % and average is 2.7 %. The samples taken were
random by non geologist samplers from the area and present a fairly accurate
indication of the whole stockpile area. The close correlation to the reported
mined grade and resource grade should be noted.
    A rough calculation of the area of the stock pile sampled is
approximately 100,000 square feet and the depth determined to date by backhoe
digging is at least 15 feet and more over an estimated 75% of the stock pile.
    Kokanee also had 3 samples run on a priority basis from one of the
stockpile test holes.

     V-OX- HO 1 a    2.0%      -

    The median value is 2.0 % and average is 2.0 %. The samples taken were
also random from the top middle and bottom of the backhoe hole. Again the
close correlation to the reported mined grade and resource grade and the
consistency from top to bottom should be noted.
    Additional sampling has been completed in the backhoe holes to confirm
the mineralization through the stockpile and those samples will be reported
when available.
    The backhoe was also used to dig several other areas on the property that
were found to contain oxide mineralization and a new area of sulphide
mineralization that are believed to be from the extraction drifts that were
developed in the 1970's. The sulphide material represents a new stockpile that
was previously unknown to Kokanee.
    The size of all these areas of stockpiled mineralization are currently
being measured and sampled and will be reported as the results become
    This ongoing sampling is being completed to confirm the company's initial
estimate of between 200,000 to 500,000 tons of the oxide material.
