IRON ORE RESOURCES

Of thirty-six boreholes (5,914 ft drilled in 4.95 acres in the Dragon Pit area) thirty-two contained iron ore. Iron ore was encountered to below the 500 ft level and could well go farther on basis of iron being reported at 1000 ft adjacent to the old shaft. XRF was carried out on 87 core samples (and further samples from outside of pit area). The mineralogy is a mix of goethite, hematite and amorphous iron (identified as ferrihydrite). Some zones are high in goethite, which is a light to dark yellowish ochre, which will have applications as a pigment. A Measured Resource of iron ore in the pit area of 2,104,000 tons has been calculated.
