that the assay results have been received from the 1,006 m diamond drill
program completed in March, 2010 on the Chukuni property in Red Lake,

sulphide concentrations the program did not encounter significant gold values.

and disseminations in a weak discontinuous alteration envelope of chlorite and
staurolite over a core length of 95 m.
