Walter Segsworth, B.Sc. FEC, P.Eng, will increase his level of involvement with the company by becoming Executive Chair of the Board with a greater focus on shareholder relations.

Her addition to the team will enhance the corporation's governance and administration functions.
Board member Rodger Gray, BA Economics and Commerce, will also be increasing his involvement and he will be focused on strategic positioning and financing. Mr. Gray has a 25-year history in the financial markets in investment banking and brokerage, specializing in the junior resources sector. His specific emphasis will be engaging suitable partners who have the wherewithal, both technical and financial, to work with the Company on its exploration properties.

The Company welcomes Sarah's input as we move our projects to a more advanced stage.
Mr. Segsworth, Executive Chair commented as follows: "It has become apparent that, for too long, David Blann has been saddled with an ever-greater level of necessary but non-core work simply to keep Happy Creek operational. These changes are meant to free our CEO to do what he does best - running hugely creative land acquisition and geological exploration programs that are the core of our business. David's talent has put us in the extraordinary position of having what is arguably the best tungsten property in the Western Hemisphere and huge under-explored properties with substantial copper and locally precious metal showings next to, and along strike of, the biggest copper mine in Canada".
On Behalf of the Board,
Walter Segsworth, Director, Executive Chair.
David Blann, President, CEO,
Walter Segsworth, Executive Chair
