About the PAK Rare Metals Project

The Pakeagama Lake pegmatite has a exposed strike length of approximately 200m
with a width up to 150m at surface with mineralization that is open in all
directions. In September 2012, Peter J. Vanstone, P.Geo. the qualified person
for the project, conducted a 91 sample channel sampling program on the exposed
Pakeagama Lake pegmatite in order to confirm historical results and to add
additional channel samples while further sampling by distinct geologic zones.
The results of the program have so far identified high grade lithium up to
4.74% Li[2]O over 15 meters in three distinct pegmatite zones, and high grade
tantalum up to 192ppm Ta[2]O[5 ]over 14 meters in one of these zones. A
diamond drill program has been independently recommended and on March 1, 2013,
the Company announced that a Phase I, 6 hole, 1,000 meter drill program
commenced.
