Drilling Progress – Grassy Lake. The 3,000 meter diamond drilling program on the Grassy Lake portion of the Red Vein property is now 50% completed.

The Red Vein 5,936 Ha property is located within the southern part of the Abitibi greenstone belt in the Shining Tree area of northern Ontario and is highly prospective for Copper, Zinc and Gold. (See the Company's news releases dated December 6 and 20, 2010).
The area has long been an area of intense interest, located in the heart of the exploration triangle of the three large Ontario mining camps of Timmins, (80 km due North), Sudbury, (150 km due South), and Kirkland Lake (75 km Northeast). There are 30 VMS deposits over 200,000 tonnes of massive sulphides within 200Km of the Red Vein property including Kidd Creek in Timmins of 147,880,000 tonnes grading at 2.31% copper, 6.18% zinc and 87 g/t silver and the Horne, H&G Orebodies in Noranda of 53,700,000 tonnes grading at 2.2% copper and 6.10 g/t gold. There are numerous historical copper showings on the property and gold showings abound in the surrounding area. The property is located approximately 10 km north-west of the former Tyranite Gold Mine and 8 km south of the Sothman nickel deposit (see News Release of October 6, 2008).

Expropriation Claim Update. The Company advises that the Supreme Court of Canada announced on February 10, 2011 that it would not grant the Company's request for leave to appeal the decision of the BC Court of Appeal in relation to the compensation proceedings brought by the Company concerning the expropriation of the Company's Amber Claims in British Columbia in 1995. Aside from addressing matters of costs, which the Company anticipates will result in a net payment in its favor from the government, this brings to a conclusion the litigation that the Company has been involved in with the BC government concerning its taking of the Company's Amber Claims for parkland.
