Cautionary  Note to United  States Investors -  The information
contained herein
and  incorporated by reference  herein has been 
prepared in accordance with the requirements  of Canadian securities
laws, which differ from the requirements of United  States 
securities  laws.  In  particular,  the term "resource" does not
equate  to the term "reserve". The  Securities Exchange Commission's
(the  "SEC")
disclosure  standards  normally  do  not  permit  the 
inclusion  of information
concerning  "measured  mineral  resources",
 "indicated  mineral resources"  or "inferred   mineral   resources" 
 or   other  descriptions  of  the amount  of mineralization  in
mineral  deposits that  do not  constitute "reserves" by
standards, unless such information is required to be disclosed
by the law of the Company's  jurisdiction  of  incorporation  or  of 
a  jurisdiction in which its securities  are  traded.  U.S. 
investors  should also understand that "inferred
mineral  resources"
have a great amount of uncertainty as to their existence and great 
uncertainty as  to their  economic and  legal feasibility. Disclosure
of "contained  ounces" is permitted disclosure under Canadian
regulations; however,
the  SEC normally  only permits  issuers to 
report mineralization that does not constitute  "reserves" by  SEC
standards  as in  place tonnage and grade without
reference to unit
