The Parac Agreement was structured following discussions with the entire community during a community meeting and was signed in the presence of a notary by the community President, two community Directors and representatives of Grenville and Journey. The Parac Agreement is valid for a ten year period. This agreement complements a similar agreement signed with the Community of Viso by Grenville on July 17, 2007 which allows access to the Property for Grenville, and through the Joint Venture Agreement dated February 5, 2008, Journey will have access for exploration and development.

The Parac Agreement indicates that Grenville and Journey will respect the Community of Parac's previous agreement with High Ridge Resources and in like manner, the Community will ensure that High Ridge Peru S.A.C. honours Parac's Agreement with Grenville and Journey. All parties are to be environmentally and socially responsible and act in good faith to develop the projects in the area.

Pursuant to the Parac Agreement, Journey will pay the Community an annual fee which will allow Grenville and Journey unrestricted access to conduct exploration activities on land owned by the Community within the Silveria region. Journey also agreed to assist with the renovation and expansion of the community hall, the upgrade of the Community's primary school through the provision of teaching materials, stationary and equipment, and to assist with outstanding legal fees owed by the Community.

"All parties and stakeholders in this area must realize that in a competitive market, investors have little patience for delays. We anticipate silver and copper prices will continue to rise and gold, zinc and lead prices will stabilize in the next five years. A window of opportunity exists to develop the Silveria project in this timeframe," stated A. Paul Gill, President and CEO of Grenville Gold Corp.

Jack Bal, President of Journey comments: "Journey is very pleased to have reached agreements with the community of Parac and we look forward to working closely with the community in the future. The access and benefits agreement provides a very solid foundation on which to develop the exploration program to the mutual benefit of all stakeholders."

Subject to regulatory approval, Journey entered into a joint venture agreement on the Silveria Property, whereby Journey has an exclusive option to acquire up to a 75% interest in the Property by funding up to a total of $11,800,000 in exploration and development expenditures towards advancing the project into production (See news release dated March 17, 2008).
