Paul Dircksen, Executive Chairman of Timberline said, "We are very excited about the prospects for Timberline and its future. We are building on our expertise in exploring and developing, and so we will be looking to future South Eureka-type acquisitions that we believe can quickly create value for our shareholders. The Butte Highlands Joint Venture is an example of the type of transaction we might see as we advance a property – allowing another company to take the production step, but retaining a significant interest in Timberline for our shareholders. Timberline truly delivers diversified value. We see a time of exciting growth for Timberline, and will be executing a concerted focus on marketing and capital markets awareness given our new TSX-V listing and our representation in Toronto. As part of that process, we will be reviewing shareholder interaction and our website so as to allow greater access to current information and news about Timberline. I would like to take this opportunity to extend my thanks to all our Timberline, Timberline Drilling, and Butte Highlands JV teams for all their efforts, and especially to all our shareholders for your continued support of your company."
