efforts in guiding the project development of our Oracle Ridge copper
project ("Oracle Ridge" or "Oracle Ridge Project"), located 24 km

"Alan has been the key man in getting us to our current status," said
Mr. Paul Eagland, Chairman of Oracle Mining. "He directed our efforts
to find JDS Energy & Mining to assess and advance the Oracle Ridge
Project and he led the Tucson operating team in removing obstacles
that stand between us and our goals for the Oracle Ridge Project. We
are very fortunate to have Alan during such a critical phase and,
more importantly, he is still with us as a director and fully
involved in advancing the development of the Project."  
A current Mineral Resource was established under Mr. Edwards's
guidance in March 2013 and in May, the Corporation contracted JDS to
provide engineering services and produce a feasibility study in
accordance with NI 43-101 (the "Feasibility Study"). Mr. Edwards's
advised that as he is involved with a number of other mining
companies, and with the Feasibility Study work well underway, the
time had come to reduce costs as the Project moves ahead.  
The Corporation has a Chairman and President as well as a complete
executive team in its head office and operations team in place at
Oracle Ridge in Arizona. Oracle Mining expects to name a new Chief
Executive Officer in the near future.
