The intercept in hole AT-10-24 is situated about 150m west and down dip from hole AT-10-01 and both holes have confirmed a broad zone of gold and copper mineralization of approximately 155m to 183m wide associated with the new Footwall Zone. This mineralization is wide open on strike and to depth. Previously announced hole AT-10-01 has been calculated using the 0.40 g/t AuEq cut off for Atikwa Lake resources and is outlined below.

The above drill intercepts are approximate true widths. The stated AuEq herein are head grades and do not include metallurgical recovery rates or net smelter returns. Assaying for the above drill core was completed by AGAT Laboratories of Mississauga, Ontario.@@end@@

A further 4 holes are pending from the 2010 drill program. In addition, a further 700 core samples are pending for 11 holes in the Footwall Zone from holes drilled between 2006 to 2010.

The above Footwall Zone drilling and Maybrun Main Zone drilling is outside of the previously reported August, 2009 NI 43-101 compliant Mineral Resource Estimates which are as follows:
