November 2009

In a November 3, 2009 news release, SLAM Exploration Ltd. reported the acquisition of the
Silverjack Property through an agreement with Northeast Exploration Services and Terry
Mersereau. The property, which comprises 3 claims covering 48 hectares adjacent to SLAM’s
Nash Creek property in northern New Brunswick, contains high-grade silver-lead-zinc-copper
veins discovered in 1956. Records indicate a forty foot shaft was sunk in 1966 to explore the
discovery vein. A bulk sample removed from an open pit in 1975 returned 51.05 oz/ton (1750.3
g/t) Ag with 14.3% Pb and 10.2% Cu. Previous drilling results range up to 19.42 oz/ton (665.8
g/t) Ag, 3.23% Cu, 14.35% Zn and 11.32% Pb over 2.8 m. SLAM has completed preliminary
prospecting in the area and has submitted 15 samples for analysis.

The November 5, 2009 edition of the Telegraph-Journal reported that Maple Minerals Corp. is in
the process of purchasing the assets of Blue Note Caribou Mines Inc. for US $4.25 million. Blue
Note Caribou, junior mining company that operated the Caribou underground mine and nearby
Restigouche open-pit mine, went into receivership last February and declared bankruptcy in July
following a drop in commodity prices. Blue Note had invested about $150 million into the mine
before halting operations.

In a November 10, 2009 news release, Corridor Resources reported natural gas production in the
third quarter of 2009 averaged 14.5 mmscfpd resulting in net loss of $3,442,000 on revenues of
$5,167,000. The average natural gas sales price in the third quarter of 2009 was $3.87/mscf
compared to $9.94/mscf in the third quarter of 2008.

The November 17, 2009 edition of the Telegraph-Journal reported that the potential shale gas
reserves in the Maritimes Basin of southern New Brunswick exceed the huge amount of
conventional natural gas that a new Geological Survey of Canada study concluded may lie under
the rest of Canada's East Coast. The Maritimes Basin contains an estimated 39 trillion cubic feet
of natural gas according to the Geological Survey of Canada. However, a recent study by
Corridor Resources suggests that there might be another 67 trillion cubic feet of natural gas
trapped in a 300-metre-thick shale formation deep in the Maritimes Basin.

In a November 18, 2009 news release, Puma Exploration reported results from two drill holes on
the Turgeon base-metal deposit in northern New Brunswick. Intersections included assays of

fracs on the vertical Green Road G-41 well, located approximately 4 kilometers north of the
village of Elgin in southern New Brunswick. At the end of a 57 hour flow period, the well was
flowing at a rate of 4.1 mmscf/day, consisting of approximately 85% natural gas and 15%
propane frac fluid at a flowing wellhead pressure of 2083 psi. These results represent the first
significant flow of natural gas from the Frederick Brook shale, and are encouraging for future
horizontal drilling and multi-stage fracturing of this large unconventional resource play.

that were carried out on its Mount Pleasant Mine Property. The tests include a bench scale testing
of a multi-stage grinding and gravity-flotation separation process to improve the grade and
recovery of metals, and a leach test to assess the technical viability for the extraction of tungsten
from low grade concentrates. The information obtained from these tests will assist in designing

Brunswick. The drilling program consisted of 4,900 m in 28 holes. The goals of the drill program
were to upgrade a portion of the current Inferred Resource to the Measured and Indicated
category; to identify better grade near-surface resources which will be mined early in the life of
the mine to improve the recovery of mine capital costs; and to test targets adjacent to the Zone III
and Ellipse Zones, the two most economically important zones in the Sisson Brook deposit.
