Aguilas Project - Work commences

The company manages the Aguilas Project through its agreement to acquire Spanish company, Minera Aguila SLU. Minera Aguila SLU holds the Las Aguilas I, II and III Investigation Permit applications, referred to as the "Aguilas Project".

Permitting of Aguilas I, II and III mineral rights continue to progress. Definitive Admission and Publication of the permits in the Official Bulletin will precede a mandatory Public Consultation period and full granting of the Investigation Permits.

Reconnaissance prospecting has commenced in the Aguilas Project aimed at helping map the extent and nature of the copper and lead-silver mineralization. Detailed review and compilation of historical exploration data has also commenced. The results of this work will be used to delineate areas for more detailed geological mapping, geochemistry and geophysics. The recent prospecting has identified copper mineralization in float and outcrop together with suspected ancient mine workings over a strike length of approximately 1.4 kilometers (open). Prospecting will continue this quarter with the first assay results anticipated before the end of April.

The Company also announces the grant of an aggregate of 2,425,000 stock options to directors, officers and consultants. The options are exercisable for a period of 10 years for $0.10 per option share.
