The above drill holes are from the Maybrun Main open pit zone and have been drilled as part of the Company's efforts to delineate and confirm further Indicated resources within the Maybrun Zone as part of the recommended work program outlined in the Company's August 16, 2010 Preliminary Scoping Study. Further assay results from this drilling are pending.@@end@@

In addition, the Company is initiating a down hole geophysical program. The main purpose of this program is to primarily test for drill targets and anomalies around or below previously announced holes AT-10-01 and 24 (January 5, 2011) which both intersected between 155m and up to 183m of intermittent gold and copper mineralization, in the New Footwall Zone, within the local country rock (andesites) below the Main Maybrun open pit zone. It is presently postulated that this New Footwall zone may be nearing an important structural feature that may be distal to, and potentially connected with, the above Footwall mineralization and Maybrun open pit zones.

All of 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.
