The Prud'homme project

The Prud'homme project, comprised of 181 claims covering approximately 8,145 ha, is located in northern Quebec approximately 60 km west of Kuujjuak and 40 km south of Tasiujaq, both of these communities are serviced by their respective airports and have access to deep tide sea water.

The project area has had significant work since the 1950's where there are currently three zones of mineralization that have been well identified in the geologic literature: Soucy (A&D) as well as the Prud'homme 1 North and South. The historical reports refer to mineral deposits (not compliant with NI 43-101 requirements) as follows:

Summary table below of historical data on Prud'homme and Soucy deposits (Sigeom, GM-54631 as cited by Wares, R.P., 1995)

The Company is completing a National Instrument 43-101 compliant report in conjunction with this acquisition.

Following the acquisition of the Property, the Company intends to initiate a comprehensive process of compiling, digitizing, and evaluating all available geoscientific data pertaining to the Property. This data will then be utilized to formulate an exploration strategy, employing modern, systematic exploration techniques. The objective is to extend mineralization into newly identified potential zones, as revealed through geophysical studies, and to investigate the potential at greater depths, given that historical drilling typically does not exceed 300 meters from the surface.

The Company confirms this Option Agreement is a fundamental acquisition under TSXV policy as the Company expects to spend more than 50% of its time and expenditure, on this property over the next 12 months. The Company's shares will be halted and will remain halted pending TSXV approval.

The Next Steps

The Company is presently in discussions with its debentureholders and creditors and will provide further news releases as these discussions are concluded.

The Company also intends to proceed with a consolidation (the "Consolidation") of its issued and outstanding common shares ("Common Shares") on the basis of one (1) new post-consolidation common share for every ten (10) pre-consolidation common shares, subject to receipt of applicable regulatory approval. The Company currently has 202.5 million common shares issued and outstanding and following the completion of the Consolidation, the Company will have approximately 20.3 million post-consolidation common shares outstanding. No fractional shares will be issued as a result of the Consolidation. Each fractional share following the Consolidation that is less than one-half of a share will be cancelled and each fractional share that is at least one-half of a share will be rounded up to the nearest whole share. All options and warrants outstanding will reflect the change in accordance with the Consolidation.

The Company will then also complete a private placement financing for a minimum of $750,000 in accordance with TSX Venture policies to meet its initial commitments under the Option Agreement and the required working capital in accordance with TSXV policies.

Pursuant to the policies of the TSXV, the Option Agreement and the issuance of the Common Shares (on a post-Consolidation bases) are subject to receipt of all necessary corporate and regulatory approvals, including the approval of the TSXV. All Common Shares issued will be on a post-Consolidation basis and subject to a statutory hold period of four months plus a day from the date of issuance in accordance with applicable securities legislation.
