Cautionary Note to U.S. Investors Regarding Estimates of Inferred
Mineral Resources  
This press release uses the terms "inferred mineral resources." We
advise U.S. investors that while these terms are recognized and
required by Canadian regulations, the SEC does not recognize them.
"Inferred mineral resources" have a great amount of uncertainty as to
their existence, and great uncertainty as to their economic and legal
feasibility. It cannot be assumed that all or any part of an
"inferred mineral resource" will ever be upgraded to a higher
category. Under Canadian rules, estimates of "inferred mineral
resources" may not form the basis of a feasibility study or
prefeasibility studies, except in rare cases. The SEC normally only
permits issuers to report mineralization that does not constitute
"reserves" as in-place tonnage and grade without reference to unit
measures. U.S. investors are cautioned not to assume that any part or
all of an inferred resource exists or is economically or legally
