Mineral Resource 
While the terms "mineral resource" and "inferred mineral resource"
are recognized and required by Canadian regulations, they are not
defined terms under standards in the United States. As such,
information contained in this report concerning descriptions of
mineralization and resources under Canadian standards may not be
comparable to similar information made public by U.S. companies
subject to the reporting and disclosure requirements of the United
States Securities and Exchange Commission ("SEC"). "Inferred mineral
resources" have a great amount of uncertainty as to their existence
and a 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. Investors are
cautioned not to assume that any part or all of mineral deposits in
this category will ever be converted into reserves.

Forward-looking statements in this press release include, without
