2.2   Lebon Gold Mines Limited (the “Company”) was incorporated under the Business
      Corporations Act (Ontario) (the “Act”) by Letters Patent certified effective April 24,
      1945. The Company was dissolved on March 16, 1976 pursuant to subsection 251(3) of
      the Act for default in complying with section 134 of the Securities Act (Ontario). The
      Company was revived on June 29, 1988 pursuant to the Lebon Gold Mines Act, 1988. By
      articles of amendment certified effective January 15, 1991, the objects of the Company
      were deleted, the restrictions on business were removed and the authorized capital was
      amended to provide for an unlimited number of common shares. Due to lack of any
      records at the Ministry of Commercial and Business Services (Ontario), the Company
      filed restated articles of incorporation certified effective June 7, 2005. The Company is a
      reporting issuer in Ontario and was registered as an extra-provincial company under the
      Business Corporation Act (British Columbia) by Certificate of Registration certified
      effective June 24, 2005.

2.3   The Company has no subsidiaries.

2.4   The Company is not proposing an acquisition, amalgamation, merger, reorganization or

2.5   The Company’s constating documents do not differ from Canadian corporate legislation
      with respect to corporate governance principles.

3.    General Development of the Business

3.1   The Company has historically been engaged in the acquisition and exploration of mineral
      properties. The Company is a reporting issuer in the Province of Ontario.

      The Company currently holds mineral property interests located in the State of Nevada,
      USA and its principal business activities include the exploration of natural resource

3.2   MinQuest Inc. (“MinQuest”) and the Company entered into an Option Agreement on March
      7, 2004, covering the Sheep Mountain Property in Yavapai County, Arizona, U.S.A..
      Under the terms of the Option Agreement, the Company, as optionee, may earn a 100%
      interest in the property by March 7, 2010, by making a series of cash payments to
      MinQuest, the optionor, totaling US$95,000, incurring exploration expenditures totaling
      US$1,350,000, and allotting, and issuing to MinQuest, 500,000 free trade common shares in
      the capital stock of the Company. Upon completing the option requirements, the Company
      will retain the one-time right for 60 days to purchase 1.5% Net Smelter Royalty (“NSR”)
      for US$5,000,000 from MinQuest.

3.3   The Company is in the process of exploring its mineral properties and has not yet
      determined whether these properties contain reserves that are economically recoverable.
      The Company has not earned significant revenues and is considered to be in the
      development stage. The recoverability of amounts recorded for mineral properties and
      related deferred costs is dependent upon the discovery of economically recoverable
      reserves, confirmation of the Company’s interest in the properties, the ability of the
      Company to obtain necessary financing to complete the development, and future
      profitable production or proceeds from the disposition thereof.

4.    Narrative Description of the Business

4.1   The principal business of the Company is the acquisition, exploration and development of
      mineral properties.

4.2   The Company has no asset-backed securities outstanding.

4.3   The following is a description of the Company’s principal mineral property:

      Geologist’s Report

      Set forth below is management’s summary of certain portions of a technical report
      entitled “Sheep Mountain Property, Yavapai County, Arizona – NP 43-101 Technical
      Report” (the “Report”), prepared by Edwin Ullmer, BA, MSc – Geology (the qualified
      person within the meaning of National Instrument 43-101-Standards of Disclosure for
      Mineral Projects (“NI 43-101”)). The Report was prepared in accordance with NI 43-
      101. The full report is available on the Internet at www.sedar.com comprising a part of in
      the Company’s documents filed on SEDAR.

      Property Description and Location

      The Sheep Mountain Property is located in south-central Yavapai County in central Arizona,
      about 30 miles (50 kilometers) due north of City of Phoenix. The property is centered on
      latitude 3402’00”N and longitude 112022’30”W. The oxide copper mineralization occurs
      on the southeast flank of Sheep Mountain, a cluster of modest peaks and ridges rising to
      about 4000 feet in elevation. Thus far, copper mineralization of interest to the Company has
      been found in Sections 8, 17, 18, 19, 20, 21, 28, and 29 of T8N, R1 W and Section 13 of
      T8W, R2W.

Much of the Sheep Mountain area is federally owned land and open for staking. Ownership
is split on the H.M. Flood parcel; the surface is privately owned and mineral rights are
federally owned. Originally homestead lands, the owners of claims on the Flood parcel
have guaranteed access to these lands pursuant to Bureau of Land Management regulations.
The Champie Ranch parcel is fee land and no exploration agreement has been reached with
the owner at this time. State section 29 is Arizona surface and minerals and MinQuest
currently has the minerals exploration permit.

The lode claims discussed below are designed to secure the known anomalies and potential
cupiferous ground exposed in basement rock windows composed of Precambrian
(Proterozoic) rocks and possible later lithologies such as Laramide intrusives. The claims
also cover the post-mineralization Tertiary volcanics covering the basement rocks between
the windows. Fault structures have been identified from geophysics and surface mapping,
are projected under the volcanic cover portions ofwhich are sufficiently shallow here to
strip if adequate grades of copper mineralization are found. These fault zones are also
deposition controls for copper oxide and sulfide mineralization.

A total of 104 unpatented lode claims, covering an area of 2148.64 acres (869.89 hectares)
in sections 7, 8, 17, 18 19 ,20, 21, and 28 of T8N, R1 W and R2W comprise the Sheep
Mountain Property as controlled by MinQuest-Lebon. The annual assessment fees for each
of the claims, (2005: $9,000) have been paid and the payment for the 2005-2006 year was
made on August 29, 2005 to the U.S. Department of the Interior at the Division of Mining
Claims – Bureau of Land Management, Arizona State Office, 222 North Central Avenue
Phoenix, AZ 85004-2203, and the documents were also filed at the Yavapai County seat in
Prescott, Arizona. The claims are valid until September 2, 2006, when the next annual
payments are required. MinQuest located the latest block of 40 claims, Ray 168A through
Ray 207, on March 10-16, 2006, but registration documents confirming their legal location
are not available as of the date hereof.

Table 1 shows filing information for lode claims comprising the Sheep Mountain Property.
The Mule 59-63 and Jackpot claims were initially located on February 1, 1996. The
remaining Mule claims and Mal claims were located on February 12-14, 2004. Ray 132
through Ray 168 (discontinuous series) were located on June 2, 2004. The claims are
recorded as 1,500 feet by 600 feet, the maximum dimensions allowed for lode claims under
the General Mining Laws of the United States of America, United States Code (Titles 30
and 43), as amended.

MinQuest petitioned for the mineral resources on Arizona State Section 29 in T8N, R1W in
2005, and the mineral exploration permit was granted under permit no. 08-108978 on
November 22, 2005 for the 635 acres (257.1 hectares) comprising the entire section A
$3,000 bond for reclamation and damage was posted.

Accessibility, Climate, Local Resources, Infrastructure and Physiography

The Sheep Mountain Property is located in south-central Yavapai County in central Arizona,
about 30 miles (50 kilometers) north of the fringe of the City of Phoenix. The region is
rugged Sonora desert terrain with sparse vegetation consisting of cacti, grasses, and low
shrubs. Elevations range from 4100 feet on the ridge crests and peaks of Sheep Mountain to
about 2800 feet in creek valleys. Scattered permanent and part-time residents live along
Castle Creek within a few miles of the Sheep Mountain Property. The federal and state
land is permitted for cattle grazing and the Champie cattle ranch headquarters is located in
section 22.

The site can be reached by driving north on U.S. Highway 17 to the Arizona State
Highway 74 (Carefree Highway). Continue west on 74 for eleven miles to the Castle Hot
Springs Road, turn right and proceed past the Lake Pleasant recreation area. Continue west
on the Castle Hot Springs Road for about 11 miles. The road passes Castle Hot Springs
and follows Castle Creek which is typically dry. When the road crosses Castle Creek on
the river bed, turn right onto the river bed and drive a few hundred feet past the county
maintenance yard to the jeep trailhead that leads up the hill on the north side of the creek.
The jeep trails on Bureau of Land Management and State land provide local access to the
Sheep Mountain Property. These trails are rugged and typically better negotiated with all-
terrain vehicles (ATVs). These local roads existed prior to the acquisition of the Sheep
Mountain Property; some were permitted and built by earlier mineral exploration
companies. MinQuest is currently restoring them for drilling vehicles.

The climate is typical for the arid Sonora desert. Temperatures often exceed 1000 F in the
summer and are mild in the winter. Mining operations can comfortably continue
throughout the year. Rainfall is typically below 13 inches a year, but sporadic, short,
intense storms can cause local flooding and gully washes.

Water for mining operations would likely come from groundwater sources. For mining
operations a large labor pool of expertise is readily available from the nearby City of

Phoenix. Electric power lines lead to the few scattered residences and ranches along
Castle Creek Road and a line could be shunted the few miles to mining operations. A
heavier transmission line would likely have to be installed by the power company. There
have been no identified environmental restrictions or concerns thus far that would
interfere with or severely inhibit continued exploration or development work on the claims.
New roads and drill sites will have to be examined for any sensitive archeological and
environmental conditions by appropriate government agencies.

History of Exploration

Discovery and Prior Exploration

Copper oxide mineralization, primarily malachite with lesser cuprite and chrysocolla et
al, on outcrop was first discovered by prospectors many decades ago in Precambrian
rocks in Section 18, T8N, and R1W. A shallow shaft and short adit near Red Creek that
explored subsurface copper anomalies in Precambrian rocks are all that remain of this
early activity. These workings are currently within the present bounds of Sheep Mountain

Exploration information records on the greater Sheep Mountain properties begin in the
early 1960s after renewed interest by exploration companies in the copper oxide shows as
surficial indicators of possible underlying porphyry copper mineralization. A map of all
exploration borings known to MinQuest that were subsequently drilled by the various
companies with their accompanying anomalous copper intervals are shown on Figure 5.
Phelps Dodge Mining Company (“PD”) of Phoenix, Arizona (home office) explored the
greater Sheep Mountain area from 1963 to 1967 with an IP survey and 38 drill holes
totaling 44,000 feet. PD found significant mineralization in Proterozoic rocks beginning at
200 feet in their first boring, SM-1, in the Proterozoic window of section 21, which is now
within the current MinQuest claim block. Following this discovery they drilled a series
ofborings to the east through the extensive Tertiary volcanic cover into the Proterozoic
section. After numerous borings, PD discovered a deep, completely concealed porphyry
copper-molybdenum deposit with a supergene copper sulfide blanket under the post -
mineral volcanics. The deposit is covered by 1500 to 2200 feet of Tertiary volcanics. The
mineralization is associated with a Laramide quartz monzonite stock, and the adjacent
Precambrian rocks are also mineralized. This deposit is about three miles east of the
MinQuest-Lebon copper oxide targets and the PD discovery hole, SM-1. PD’s remaining
core holes concentrated on the evaluation of the Castle Copper-Molybdenum deposit,
named after nearby Castle Hot Springs.

Particularly important for the Sheep Mountain project, four of PD’s exploration holes,
SM-1, SM-2, SM-3 and SM-4 were collared in sections 20 and 21, T8N, R1W very near
MinQuest-Lebon’s current property holdings. The original discovery hole SM-1, in
section 21 about 100 feet north of MinQuest’s Ray claim block near an area of oxide
copper exposures, had intervals of 40 feet of 0.43% and 70 feet of 0.15% copper (mostly
as chalcocite). SM-1 appears to be collared just east of the South Red Creek fault. PD
considered the area defined by the above holes plus SM-6 and SM-9 as a separate
exploration target (Area “B”). These holes define a broad area about a mile across of
subeconomic mineralization under the volcanic cover that “constitutes an area of significant
sulfide introduction.” It is not certain whether this mineralization has its own Laramide
intrusive source or if it is a part of the Castle stock.

Following PD’s effort, Bear Creek (Kennecott’s exploration arm) drilled three shallow
RC assessment holes in 1967, two of which were collared on the Sheep Mountain
Property claims in section 18. These holes were less than 100 feet deep and did not
penetrate the post-mineral volcanics. Bear Creek’s casing remnants are still found in
section 18.

From 1968 to 1982 Utah Construction Company (“UC”), a division Utah International
Corp., drilled 22 rotary and/or core holes for a porphyry coppermolybdenum target, four of
which were collared on or near the present Sheep Mountain Property claims in section 18.
These holes include UC-2, the first deep hole drilled on the Red Creek Proterozoic
window, and the discovery boring that encountered significant copper and molybdenum
mineralization including 0.60% copper from 250 to 270 feet and 0.18% copper from 270 to
524 feet. The upper interval represents supergene enrichment. The claims optioned by PD
and UC were dropped in 1984 because of low copper prices and the excessive depth of the
porphyry mineralization.

In 1989 Orcana Resources Ltd. reviewed the potential of the Castle Copper-Molybdenum
deposit and drilled two borings before ceasing work by 1994. Neither of these holes was
located near the Sheep Mountain Property.

Cyprus Metals Company briefly examined the copper oxide prospects of Sheep Mountain
in 1995 but, after gathering surface samples and making a preliminary resource estimate,
decided that potential reserves were too small for the low price of copper at the time.
Cyprus carried out no further field work on the Sheep Mountain Property.

In the mid-late 1990s surface grab samples were collected by MinQuest. In contrast to the
porphyry copper-molybdenum sulfide target in most of the previous exploration work,
MinQuest’s interest in Sheep Mountain Property is primarily the oxide copper potential
apparent from surface exposures. The renewed interest is sustained by the recent increase
of the price of copper and a potential large low grade source of leachable copper.

Although much of the copper mineralization found in the few PD and UC drill holes on or
near the MinQuest property is below 500 feet in graben blocks, good intervals in two holes,
UC-2 and SM-1, are between 200 and 300 feet in horst blocks and copper oxides are
present in Precambrian rocks from the surface down. Neither of these holes is collared on
fault zones. The secondary sulfide mineralization is relatively shallow at Sheep Mountain
compared to Castle deposit ore because the Proterozoic is exposed on the surface on horst
blocks or buried by much less volcanic cover. The proximity of mixed sulfide and oxide
mineralization at depth indicates greater copper oxide potential between the surface and the
sulfides as well as the potential of a viable, relatively shallow supergene and hypogene
sulfide resource which has not yet been identified from the few exploration borings drilled
thus far.

Resource Evaluation

A reliable resource evaluation for Sheep Mountain Property cannot be currently carried
out that would satisfy requirements for the NI 43-101 Technical Report using the data
from the limited exploration drilling carried out on the Sheep Mountain Property. The
evidence needed for a reliable estimate of resources will involve real-time data
verification procedures, far more additional subsurface sampling data and coverage and

information on geologic controls of mineralization. Cyprus Metals Company’s
preliminary assessment of resources using two of UC’s drill hole intercepts (UC-2, UC-
20) and sampled surface exposures around the Red Creek window in section 18 resulted
in estimating a geologic potential of 40 to 50 million tons of ore grade copper oxide rock
with a 2:1 stripping ratio. This is a conceptual estimate. There has been insufficient
evidence to define a mineral resource and it is uncertain if further exploration will result
in the target being lineated as a mineral resource.


Regional Geology

The Sheep Mountain Property lies in a northwest-trending belt composed of early to middle
Proterozoic supracrustal rocks of the Yavapai Series and middle Proterozoic plutonic rocks
of the Bradshaw complex within the Bradshaw Mountains in central Arizona (Karlstrom and
Conway, 1986). This belt forms a transition zone between the Colorado Plateau province to
the northeast and the Basin and Range province in the southwest. Coincidently, the
property also sets within a geochronological boundary zone between older Proterozoic
rocks to the southeast dating from 1700 to 1800 Ma and a younger set of lithologies to the
northwest ranging from 1600 to 1700 Ma. The boundary zone extends nearly normal to the
northwestward transition zone. This geochron boundary zone contains greenstones,
metasediments, felsic metavolcanics and calcalkaline plutons having metamorphic grades
ranging from greenschist to amphibolite facies. These rocks are thought to belong to an
ancient orogenic zone (greenstone belt), perhaps a plate suture with metal concentrations
typical of such belts in other Precambrian terrains. For instance, the Proterozoic-aged
United Verde copper deposit at Jerome occurs within this Proterozoic boundary zone about
30 miles to the west. The metal concentrations in these rocks are also available for
remobilization during later thermal/orogenic events (i.e., the Laramide orogeny).

The Sheep Mountain copper oxides and the neighboring Castle porphyry copper sulfide
mineralization are hosted by the Proterozoic gneissic granitoid complex within the
Bradshaw Mountains lithologic complex. The Castle copper and molybdenum
mineralization is related to a Laramide (late Cretaceous-early Tertiary) composite quartz
monzonite porphyry/quartz latite porphyry stock that has intruded into the Proterozoic
complex. Other Laramide quartz latite porphyry dikes crop out in Precambrian rocks a mile
northeast and two miles southwest of the Castle deposit.

Local Geology


On the Sheep Mountain Property middle Tertiary volcanics unconformably overlie
Proterozoic granitoids. Tertiary units are gently dipping rhyolite, latite and andesite
volcanic flows, pyroclastics, volcaniclastics, and dikes as well as minor sediments. Andesite
feeder dikes cut the Proterozoic as well as the nearby Castle deposit Laramide stock and
related rocks discussed below. These volcanics are all post-mineralization. Exposed horst
windows of Proterozoic rocks are composed of foliated/gneissic alaskite and related
pegmatitic phases and other granitoids, aplite dikes, and lesser diorite of the Bradshaw

complex. These rocks are in turn intruded by later Proterozoic diabase dikes. A local
Laramide (late Cretaceous-early Tertiary) igneous event is substantiated by the composite
quartz monzonite/latite porphyry stock associated with the nearby Castle porphyry copper-
molybdenum mineralization. Laramide intrusions have not yet been confirmed on outcrop
or in the subsurface in the immediate vicinity of the Sheep Mountain Property.

Eleven surface grab samples were chosen for petrographic examination when MinQuest
geologists collected surface geochemical samples for analyses in 1999. Table 2 lists the
petrography sample numbers that correspond to sample sites where a sample was also
collected for analysis. The samples were collected in the Precambrian windows in sections 8,
17, and 18 where there are copper oxide occurrences. All belong to Bradshaw complex
felsic plutonic rocks ranging from quartz monzonite to quartz diorite compositions. All the
samples appear to have undergone some later epizonal alteration. General comments on
alteration are as follows.

•      Except for SM15 and SM23, and the adit face sample, alteration on the Red Creek
       window samples (section 18 - SM2, SM5, SM6, SM9, SM15, SM23, and the adit
       face sample) is mild to moderate with plagioclase partially altered to sericite that
       becomes more intense near quartz veining. Biotite may be partially or wholly
       bleached to white mica. Where moderately altered there are pockets of kaolinite
       with iron oxide from oxidation of pyrite. Fine Pyrite grains are scattered in quartz
       veins and within orthoclase (K-feldspar). In contrast to the above, the alteration in
       SM15, SM23 and the adit face sample is rated by the petrographer as strong with all
       plagioclase altered to sericite and some or all orthoclase partially replaced by
       kaolinite, smectite, and some sericite. Fine fractures and stringers contain
       chrysocolla with minor remnant chalcocite and tenorite (CuO), chlorite, clay, fine
       sulfides, and iron oxides. SM15 and SM23 come from the west side of the window
       in Red Creek fault zone that may have provided a conduit for altering hydrothermal
       solutions. This is where alteration should be the strongest if sulfide mineralization
       were controlled by the fault structure as at the Castle ore deposit. The fractures with
       copper oxides are part of the brittle deformation near the Red Creek fault zone. In
       the adit sample plagioclase has been totally replaced by sericite and kaolinite.
       Biotite has been bleached. The few pyrite grains have been oxidized. Chrysocolla,
       tenorite, and possible turquoise are present in some samples.

•      Alteration in Ash Creek window samples (sections 8 and 17 - E3, E4, and E7) is
       rated by the petrographer as weak to strong. Alteration characteristics are generally
       similar to above. The potassic alteration occurs in selvages around quartz veins
       where some K-feldspar metasomatism has occurred. Most or all of the plagioclase
       has been replaced by sericite. Fine disseminated pyrite is common but most is
       oxidized. Chrysocolla and conichalcite (CaCu(AsO4)(OH)) are also identified. The
       Ash Creek window has yet to be carefully mapped for structures that might be
       linked to the alteration.

•      Sample SM12 from the extreme southwest corner of 18 has undergone relatively
       strong alteration. Much of the plagioclase has been replaced by orthoclase, the rest
       by sericite. Biotite has been bleached and replaced by white mica or sericite. There
       are minor scattered pockets of kaolinite. All pyrite has been oxidized or leached.

In general, the petrography describes persistent, weak to strong, retrograde hydrothermal
effects. The changes of alteration intensity between the various samples may be largely
controlled by the presence of faulting (i.e., such as major northwest fault zones) and fine
fracturing which also control the introduction of copper and other anomalous metals. Where
present in these samples, some of the kaolinite and chlorite may be of secondary origin, and
the oxidation products are related to the later processes that produced the secondary oxide
minerals including the copper oxides as well as supergene enrichment.

Geologic mapping, drill hole intersections, and the 1963 resistivity and IP survey combine to
locate a number of northwest trending faults. These faults are near-parallel to the Cow
Creek fault zone that controlled much of the ore grade mineralization at the Castle deposit.
At Sheep Mountain faults are important because of their role in horst and graben movements
that ultimately created the Proterozoic windows and provided ground preparation (open
spaces) for conduits to channel secondary and possiblyprimary mineralizing solutions, as
well as localizing later (Laramide?) intrusive activity. High resistance signatures were
detected along several projected fault zones by the IP-resistivity survey.

According to UC geologists, some or all of these northwest faults have been periodically
active since the Cretaceous and probably back to the Precambrian. Evidence for episodic
movement is apparent along the Cow Creek fault zone, and can be also applied to the
northwest faults on the Sheep Mountain Property. The Cow Creek fault zone with attending
normal offsets, trends approximately N45 0W and passes along the east side of the Castle
Laramide stock. The broad fracture zone has significantly influenced the emplacement of
the stock and has controlled the distribution of much of the best grades of copper-
molybdenum mineralization at the Castle ore body. A post-mineral, mid-Tertiary andesite
dike has been sheared by movement along this fault indicating later adjustments. The offset
of a cross-fault interpreted as a shear from lateral movement along the Cow Creek zone
                                         - 10 -

suggests a left lateral shift along the Cow Creek fault as well as normal movement. Another
fault limiting the southwestern side of the stock is nearly parallel to the Cow Creek fault
zone. The association of much of the better grades of mineralization with the Cow Creek
fault zone provides important criteria for exploration at Sheep Mountain.

West of the Cow Creek fault within the Sheep Mountain Property, offsets along similar,
near-parallel, northwest normal faults have formed horsts and grabens and possible hinge
blocks that have “brought up” blocks of Proterozoic rocks to be exposed as windows. The
Ash Creek fault trends N500W and has normal movement on the east side. The Tertiary
volcanics have dropped down against the Proterozoic section thus helping to create the Ash
Creek Proterozoic window on the west side of the fault The Ash Creek fault continues to
the southeast, and evidence from PD boring SM-9 indicates an eastward dipslip offset on
the order of 1400 feet. The other northwest structures along Proterozoic windows such as
the Red Creek, South Red Creek and Burro Spring fault zones also infer alternating normal
offsets to create the relative “upward” movements needed for the existence of the
Proterozoic outcrops. Evidence of wide zones of brittle deformation and multiple parallel
faults can be observed in Proterozoic rocks and volcanics along the Red Creek window.
Along the Red Creek fault and South Red Creek fault zones the broad patterns of fracturing
in the Tertiary and Proterozoic rocks likely include slivers of volcanics at different levels of
displacement. UC-2 is collared on the Proterozoic bedrock east of the Red Creek fault zone
at an elevation of approximately 3100 feet. Comparisons of the elevations of Tertiary-
Proterozoic unconformity intersected to the west and east in UC-16 and UC-20 reveal
minimal offsets of 1000 and 400 feet on the west and east side of the Red Creek window,
respectively. To the northeast, UC-20, collared on volcanics, intersected Proterozoic rocks
at 742 feet (elevation about 2800 feet). UC-16, located southwest of UC-2, intersected the
Proterozoic basement 1780 feet (elevation about 2150 feet). A 300-foot normal offset
probably occurs between UC-16 (down) and UC-19, 500 feet to the north of UC-16 (log
UC-19 has legibility problems). The direction of this fault trend is uncertain. Steep offsets
are also implied to the south adjacent to the South Red Creek window, but no lithology logs
have been located from PD core holes SM-1 through SM-4. The Tertiary/Proterozoic
contact is implied from the beginning sample footage in each hole. The Tertiary volcanics
in all these holes was never sampled by PD. Hundreds of feet of normal movement are
indicated within a half mile of the Proterozoic window.

Deposit Types

Castle Deposit Model

An exploration model for Sheep Mountain mineralization involves mineralization controls
and hydrothermal and secondary effects associated with the Castle porphyry copper deposit.
The fluctuating copper grades in borings between the Castle deposit and the Sheep
Mountain Property claims suggest that an additional distinct, coeval Laramide
hydrothermal system (or systems) and intrusion (or intrusions) may be responsible for the
sulfide mineralization at the Sheep Mountain Property. Some relevant comparisons of the
Castle deposit can apply to Sheep Mountain geology as have been variously discussed
elsewhere. The following are cogent features of the Castle deposit that can apply to
exploration on Sheep Mountain.
                                    - 11 -

•   At the Castle ore zone, deeper hypogene mineralization comprises a typical
    porphyry copper sulfide suite of chalcopyrite, molybdenite and pyrite. In PD hole
    SM-20, the primary ore grade averages 0.49% copper and 0.076% MoS2 for an
    interval of 390 feet. Above this zone the former hypogene sulfides have been
    replaced by supergene mineralization with up to 1.7% copper and 0.06% MoS2 in a
    blanket layer averaging 90 feet thick. Chalcocite, pyrite and lesser covellite,
    molybdenite, native copper and minor malachite with three to six percent sulfides
    comprise the supergene zone. The effect of weathering on the ore body consists of a
    200-foot zone composed of an oxide zone that grades to mixed oxide/supergene
    mineralization with one to three percent sulfides. These two zones consist of green
    copper oxides, native copper, and remnant minor chalcocite and pyrite.

•   The significant oxidized zone over the Castle ore zone must have developed before
    emplacement of over 1700 feet ofmiddle Tertiary volcanics that currently overly the
    deposit. At the ore zone the faulting helped provide a wide, permeable conduit for
    migration of leaching solutions and the elevated sulfide composition of the primary
    ore created strong acidic leaching solutions which contributed to the depth of the
    secondary alteration and the rich supergene ore.

•   The Castle deposit mineralization is spread over four square miles with common
    intervals of 0.04% to 0.08% copper in Proterozoic rocks. The best mineralization
    (ore grade) is found in or adjacent to the Laramide composite stock with most hosted
    by Proterozoic rocks adjacent to the eastern contact of the stock. The Laramide
    intrusive complex is strongly altered but contains less sulfide mineralization than the
    adjacent Proterozoic rocks. Laterally, the sulfide content typically drops to less than
    one percent beyond the zone of sulfide enrichment around the stock. The overall
    mineralization has a low sulfide content.

•   Porphyry copper deposits are often nested in groups of two or more intrusive
    centers as at Superior-Globe, Arizona and Ray, Arizona. The Orcana and Utah
    International exploration programs followed the concept that the widespread
    mineralization mentioned above indicates the possibility of one or more additional
    centers west of the Castle deposit in the vicinity of the Sheep Mountain Property.
    The trend to higher copper and molybdenum grades in some holes at Sheep
    Mountain Property suggests an undiscovered intrusive center (or centers) in this

•   There is strong primary alteration at the Castle ore deposit with well developed
    potassic, argillic, propylitic and phyllic assemblages. Phyllic alteration (quartz,
    sericite, pyrite) is wide spread and occurs erratically throughout the greater Sheep
    Mountain area and is largely fracture controlled.

•   The Cow Creek fault bounds the east side of the Laramide stock and another
    parallel fault cuts the western side of the stock. The best mineralization averaging
    greater than 1% supergene copper follows the Cow Creek fault zone for 2500 feet.
    Parts of the Castle supergene blanket also occur outside of the fault zone. PD and
    UC geologists believe that the Cow Creek fault was largely instrumental for the much
    of the thickest and higher grades of supergene copper enrichment as well providing
    a control for the emplacement of the Laramide intrusions and much of the primary
                                         - 12 -

Sheep Mountain Application

The oxide copper zones on the Sheep Mountain Proterozoic outcrops are the leached
remnants of the original low sulfide Laramide mineralizing system. Sparse weathered
sulfide remnants on outcrops on the Sheep Mountain Property such as boxworks and
oxidation minerals reflect the relatively low former pyrite content in the host rock as has been
described for distal areas around the Castle deposit. The oxidation of former copper sulfides,
mostly chalcocite without abundant pyrite, would have yielded insufficient acid during
weathering to leach all the copper thus leaving green copper oxides behind.

The exposed Proterozoic rocks on the horst windows at Sheep Mountain Property have
been subjected to weathering and attending oxidation since the former volcanic cover was
eroded off. The rocks were also likely subjected to weathering and oxidation during the
prevolcanic period when the Proterozoic was previously exposed at the Castle deposit. The
oxide zone on the Red Creek window is deep. UC-2, collared east of the Red Creek fault on
the Proterozoic outcrop, penetrated 200-foot oxidized zone and a 20-foot thick chalcocite
blanket (0.60% copper).

The longer period for weathering and leaching of mineralization on the exposed Proterozoic
horst windows and bounding fault zones (i.e., Red Creek, South Red Creek, Ash Creek, and
Burro Spring windows and faults) may translate to greater concentrations of copper in the
oxide or the mixed oxide/sulfide zones or as supergene deposits in zones of structural
preparation along the northwest fault zones. Former post-volcanic water table conditions in
the horst blocks and bounding fault zones would have differed from conditions at an
unconformity located deep in the grabens, and episodic groundwater fluctuations could have
provided opportunities for multiple oxidation and reduction environments leading to
mixtures of chalcocite and oxides such as seen in UC-2.

As with the high grades of chalcocite/copper oxides in the Cow Creek fracture zone, the Red
Creek, South Red Creek, Ash Creek and Burro Creek fracture zones offer similar
opportunities as conduits for supergene mineralization and oxidation of chalcocite to copper
oxides as the water table rose and fell within the wide fault zones. The Castle deposit
model demands that the Red Creek fault zone and the other northwest fault zones mentioned
above be examined for oxide copper and secondary copper sulfides that would have
accumulated under favorable structural controls offered by the fault zone. Expectations
from field evidence are that secondary copper (and molybdenum) mineralization at the
Sheep Mountain Property will be largely disseminated within fine vein networks such as
stockwork or crackle zones. The copper oxides would tend to remain in the fault zone
because of low pyrite-low acid leaching conditions. The faults and cross-fault intersections
may also provide preferred loci for emplacement of additional Laramide intrusions as at the
Castle deposit.

As mentioned previously, the best grades of copper mineralization at the Castle deposit are
within the Cow Creek fault zone close to the Laramide stock complex. Here the primary
alteration of Proterozoic rocks is most intense. At the Sheep Mountain Property on the Red
Creek Window, rock samples with the strongest sericitation and other retrograde
mineralogy are located on the Red Creek fault zone. This could indicate proximity to a
primary mineralization source with hydrothermal fluids controlled by the advantageous
ground preparation along the fault. Enhanced hypogene copper-molybdenum
mineralization grades would be subjected to oxidation and secondary deposition.
                                         - 13 -

The copper mineralization found in UC-2 between 250 feet and TD indicates zoning from
supergene copper enrichment at 250-270 (0.60%) through a mixed supergene/oxide zone to
about 525 feet and then into protore to 976 feet. The vertical zoning in the upper portions of
SM-20 at the Castle ore zone is similar from the oxide through the supergene zones. In UC-
2 chalcocite is the prominent copper sulfide in the supergene and mixed zones. In the South
Red Creek window area, a spike in copper grade in SM-1 indicates supergene enrichment
from 200 to 240 feet. In each of these intervals a copper spike occurs at the beginning of
significant copper grades.

The relatively thin oxidation zones encountered in drilling under the unconformity at the
Sheep Mountain Property (SM-1, SM-2, SM-3, UC-16,) and other holes distal to the Castle
ore zone may, in part, reflect the fact that the rocks at these locations do not reflect the ore
zone conditions described above (fractured ground preparation) at the Castle deposit.
Alternatively, the local prevolcanic oxidizing, leaching and water table conditions may
have been different at Sheep Mountain generally, or, perhaps, part of the oxidized zone was
weathered away prior to the emplacement of volcanic cover.


The majority of copper oxide minerals found on outcrop are malachite (Cu2CO3(OH)2 and
lesser cuprite (Cu2O), chrysocolla ((Cu,Al)2H2Si2O5(OH)4.nH2O) and minor conichalcite
(CaCu(AsO4)(OH)) and turquoise (CuAl6(PO4)4(OH)8.5H2O). Cuprite often forms alteration
rims around malachite. Copper oxides are found in networks of fine fractures in the
crystalline host rocks and typically form thin crusts on rock surfaces. Molybdenum is often
present in higher concentrations following copper but molybdenum minerals have not yet
been recognized. The scattered clusters of green copper mineralization occur in local
concentrations in the Proterozoic gneissic alaskite windows which are also variously
described as quartz monzonite, granodiorite, and granite. The Tertiary volcanic rocks
surrounding the Proterozoic windows almost never have copper oxides except at a few spots
at the exposed unconformity or fault contact where copper has mobilized from the
Proterozoic host and redeposited as stains on basal volcanics. Minor copper is found on the
basal volcanics along Burro Springs fault in the extreme southwest quarter of section 18.

The few surface samples petrographically examined at Sheep Mountain exhibit primary
hydrothermal (retrograde) alteration ranging from weak to strong. The alteration
assemblages at the Castle ore deposit include strong phyllic (quartz, sericite, pyrite),
potassic, and prophylitic halos. The strongest, mostly phyllic (sericitic) alteration on the
Red Creek window is found along the Red Creek fault zone. Hand specimens exhibit
common quartz veinlets in the vicinity of copper oxide outcrops indicating hydrothermal
fluids carrying silica were introduced, but pervasive zones of silicification have not yet been
found. Notable quartz vein stockwork occurs on the Burro Spring window in the southwest
corner of section 18. Only a trace of copper oxide was found in these stockwork veins, and
there are only minor iron oxide remnants from weathered sulfides. No samples for
multielement analyses have been collected of these veins. The stockwork occurrence is
likely related to veining in brittle deformation along the Burro Spring fault.

Core hole UC-2 in section 18 is located on Proterozoic alaskite, and it advanced through
various Bradshaw complex gneissic granitoid types. Oxide copper mostly as malachite is
found on surface rocks nearby and it was logged down to 90 feet, below which the log is
                                         - 14 -

barely legible. Significant intervals of copper and molybdenum sulfide mineralization
were found below 250 feet. Cyprus evaluated the Sheep Mountain Property for oxide
copper reserves from UC-2 data and surface rock samples and determined that copper
oxides are present in sufficient quantities to calculate reserves.

The analytical results for copper and molybdenum from surface samples were collected by
MinQuest and Cyprus in the 1990s are presented on Table 3. Some MinQuest samples also
included gold and silver analyses. Cyprus’ sample suite included ten additional metals. Not
all the samples contained visible copper; some were selected for other characteristics such
as alteration and veining. As can be seen on the Table, molybdenum is often anomalous
with copper as might be expected with a relationship with porphyry copper mineralization.
Gold and silver are never significant. Cyprus’ surface samples were also analyzed for Au,
Ag, As, Bi, Cd, Hg, Pb, Sb, Se, and Zn. These element concentrations remain uneconomic
and most are not particularly anomalous. Sporadic spikes were found with As (arsenic) in
the company of elevated copper, Hg (mercury) in a couple of samples, and one Zn (zinc)
above 100 ppm, and other samples remained typically below 20 ppm. Where a comparison
can be made between zinc concentrations on the surface oxide zone and in the sulfide zone
(from UC-20), it appears that most of the zinc has been leached from the surface
environment. At the Castle deposit, other than copper and molybdenum, most metals
including zinc and lead are usually only found in trace or weakly anomalous quantities.
MinQuest knows little of specific details of the mineral or depositional controls of the
sulfide mineralization because of the poor quality of the drilling logs and the absence of
petrographic reports from core samples. PD holes SM-1, SM-2, SM-3 and SM-4 and UC
holes UC-2, UC-16, and UC-20 are located within or very near (within a half mile)
MinQuest claim blocks in proximity of surface copper oxide exposures, but the actual
mineralogy and lithologic character has to be largely inferred from analytical data until
MinQuest-Lebon’s drilling program commences.

Copper and molybdenum assays are available for the Proterozoic sections as are other
selected elements from some holes variously including Au, Ag, base metals, S, F and K.
Sulfur was determined for every fifth sample in the four PD holes and the values indicate
fairly low sulfide content for most copper-mineralized rock. Gold and silver in samples
from the PD holes and UC-20 were never significant. Only the analyses from one hole,
UC-20 included Au, Ag, Pb, Zn, Rb, F, and K. Zinc and fluorine were anomalous (zinc at
or near 100 ppm and fluorine ranging from 1500 to 6800 ppm.).

The Arizona Department of Mining and Mineral Resources in Phoenix and other private
sources have supplied MinQuest with an incomplete set of drill logs and assay data and
other surface data from earlier exploration on the Sheep Mountain Property. To date,
MinQuest’s field efforts have primarily involved some broad scale surface sampling and
mapping and securing an adequate property base to allow the planning and execution of an
appropriate exploration program. Thus far, MinQuest and MinQuest-Lebon have not
drilled, trenched, carried out any geophysical surveys, or mapped detailed geology since
claiming the ground. The potential of the Sheep Mountain Property is largely based on the
results of earlier surface and subsurface work carried out by major mining companies from
the early 1960s through 1995 and field observations and sampling by MinQuest geologists.

•      The IP-resistivity survey contracted by PD on the Sheep Mountain Property
       identified the South Red Creek window fault in section 21 and the Red Creek fault
       on the west side of the Red Creek window in section 18. Resistivity highs correlate
       with fault contacts. An increasingly high IP response associated with low
       resistivity volcanics east of section 20 and 21 indicates that thickness of volcanics
       generally increase eastward which is corroborated by drilling.

•      Generalized geologic mapping was carried out in part on the Sheep Mountain
       Property from field observations and the IP survey. The mapping further details a
       series of northwest faults with normal offsets producing horsts of Proterozoic rocks in
       juxtaposition with Tertiary volcanics.

•      Core drilling by PD and UC at or near MinQuest claims on sections 20, 21 and 18,
       T8N, R1W and section 13, T8N, R2W identified significant subeconomic copper
       and molybdenum mineralization in Proterozoic granitoids of the Bradshaw
       complex. Continued drilling by PD east of MinQuest-Lebon’s area of interest
       resulted in the discovery of a significant Laramide porphyry copper deposit related
       to a quartz monzonite stock. The similarity of the sulfide mineralization at the
       Sheep Mountain Property indicates that it is also part of a related Laramide
       hydrothermal system.

•      Bear Creek and Orcana carried out small drilling programs of three and two core
       holes, respectively, in the greater Sheep Mountain area. Bear Creek’s RC borings
       were did not advance through the volcanics and are of no use to MinQuest-Lebon’s
       exploration program. Orcana’s borings are not within the Sheep Mountain area of

•      Cyprus and MinQuest collected surface samples to evaluate the copper oxide


The historic combined reverse circulation/diamond drill borings drilled on or near the Sheep
Mountain Property are shown on Figure 5 of the Report. Figure 4 of the Report shows, in
part, locations of exploration borings, topography, and the general geology of the Sheep
Mountain Property. The holes are vertical, but hole and core sizes are unknown. At least in
                                         - 17 -

UC borings, Tertiary volcanics were drilled with a reverse circulation rotary rig and the
Proterozoic sections were then cored. The PD holes were also cored in the Proterozoic. In
both UC and PD holes, the Tertiary section was not sampled and most were not carefully
logged. The relevant borings with data available to MinQuest were drilled prior to 1982, and
the personnel and exploration offices involved with exploration of the project are no longer
available. It is important to note that none of the drill holes have penetrated that fault zones
at Sheep Creek.

The results of the first three PD core holes, SM-1 through SM-3, totaling 3044 feet support
the copper potential at Sheep Mountain and encourage further exploration in sections 20
and 21. These holes were drilled on fee land in the northwest quarter of section 21. This
land is not currently available to exploration by MinQuest-Lebon or any other mining
company. All holes advance through a section of Tertiary volcanics. SM-1 was located
about 100 feet north of MinQuest’s Ray claim block in section 21 near the Proterozoic
outcrops with copper oxides. Unfortunately there are no geological logs available for these
holes to identify the copper minerals present. The downhole sampling data at 10-foot
intervals begins upon entering the Proterozoic section which establishes a depth for the
volcanic/Proterozoic contact. The depth to the Proterozoic is relatively shallow in SM-1,
about 180 feet, and a supergene enriched zone is present from 200 to 240 feet of 0.435%
copper. Grades quickly fall off below this zone, and most 10 -foot intervals below 270 feet
are less than 0.1 % copper. Slightly higher grades averaging 0.15% occur in an isolated
zone from 580 to 650 feet. This hole was either located within slivers of the South Red
Creek window fault zone or just east of the fault zone. Holes SM-2 and SM-3 are located in
the graben block northeast of the South Red Creek fault and intersected the Proterozoic
contact and copper mineralization at much deeper intervals. Sampling data of SM-2 begins
at 857 feet (the unconformity) and in SM-3 at 759 feet. There is minor supergene
enrichment at SM-2 from 867 to 877 feet. Nearby hole SM-4 intersected the Proterozoic at
506 feet, but all copper grade assays but one remained less than 0.08%.

A second prospective area, the Red Creek window in Section 18, is also enhanced by
previous UC drilling. Core hole UC-2 is located directly on the Proterozoic rocks of the
window east of the Red Creek fault zone. UC-16, UC-19 and UC-20 were collared east and
west of the Proterozoic window where Tertiary volcanics had to be penetrated to reach the
Proterozoic. Sampling intervals in UC-2 are variable and depend on lithologic
characteristics; in UC-16 and 20 samples are collected at 10-foot intervals. UC-2 advanced
through minor copper mineralization from the surface to 250 feet. The copper grades in
UC-2 to 209 feet are 0.09% or less and increase marginally from 209 to 250 feet averaging
about 0.11%. The few notes discernable on the log indicate the copper at the upper levels of
the hole were oxides with some chalcocite. Abruptly the grade increased to 0.60% from
250 to 270 feet which represents a 20-foot zone of supergene enrichment. After a drop off
the copper grades increase from 325 to 525 feet averaging 0.3%. Molybdenum grades rise
and fall with copper grades. This zone appears to be a mixed oxide/sulfide zone indicating
possible fluctuating water table conditions. Below 525 feet copper remains anomalous but
most grades are less than 0.1% (protore) to the bottom of the hole at 976 feet. UC-20,
located about 2500 feet east of UC-2, penetrated 742 feet of Tertiary volcanics before
entering the Proterozoic section indicating a minimal normal down-drop of 400 feet east of
the Red Creek fault. Copper grades remain anomalous but below 0.1% throughout the
Proterozoic to TD at 976 feet except for 0.78% from 920 to 930 feet. Molybdenum grades
appear independent of copper and most are below 0.004%. UC-16, about 2000 feet west of
                                        - 18 -

UC-2, cut the Proterozoic contact at 1788 feet for a minimal normal offset west of the Red
Creek window of 1000 feet. Copper grades range from 0.43% to 0.022% from 1786 feet to
TD at 1840 feet. The eleven feet of 0.43% is just under the unconformity is appears to be
supergene enrichment. Molybdenum values remain below .0025% and do not appear to
follow copper values. In UC-19 copper values remain below 0.071% and most are less than
0.04%. Molybdenum grades were slightly higher on average than those from UC-16 and
UC-20. Most sampling footages are not discernable on the log. However, samples were not
collected continuously down hole, probably because the observed mineralization was

Sampling Method Approach

The only samples collected by MinQuest were grab rock chip samples for broad, initial
examination of the copper oxide exposures. Both copper and molybdenum were digested
in cyanide (samples SM1-SM12) or agua regia (SM15-SM26, E1-E8). When determined,
gold was assayed by the fire assay/atomic absorption (AA) method.

Cyprus assigned their surface rack samples to Chemex Labs, Inc. of Sparks, Nevada for
analysis. Copper and most other elements were digested by HNO3-agua regia and finished
by AA. `

The analytical methods and procedures for the historical drilling in the 1960s and 1970s
have not been located. Rock chips and core from UC drill holes were analyzed at Skyline
Labs of Tucson, Arizona. Documents showing analytical procedures are not available. The
PD drill hole data copies are missing title headers and procedural details. Thus the
laboratory identity and methods are not available for this report.

Sample Preparation, Analyses and Security

Other than grab rock chip samples MinQuest has not carried out any geochemical surveys,
drilling, or mine/mine dump sampling. The rock chip samples were bagged by MinQuest
geologists and delivered to Legend, Inc. (assay laboratory) in Reno, Nevada. Legend, Inc.
has since discontinued their laboratory business and currently is involved with supplying
mining equipment.

Data Verification

Unfortunately, the copies of historical reports and data that have been used extensively for
this report do not adequately describe or verify sampling procedures and results, nor is there
quality control information available. However, the historic exploration sampling data are
from major, reputable mining companies including Phelps Dodge Mining Company, Utah
International Corp. (merged with General Electric Corp. in 1976) and Cyprus Metals
Company. From the author’s experience, it was (and still is) a habit with these companies
that their sampling methods from drilling and other surveys are compatible with standards to
prove a credible case in the public market place for reliability and continued mine financing.

The data from UC and PD can indirectly be given credence by comparing drill intercepts of
mineralization from UC and PD borings on the Castle porphyry copper-molybdenum deposit.
UC gave the PD results sufficient scrutiny to use the data to calculate ore reserves for mine

feasibility. The drill hole reliability would also follow for the holes related to Sheep
Mountain Property.

Adjacent Properties

The nearby Castle porphyry copper deposit, as the model for the development of another,
similar mineralization system at Sheep Mountain, is an important factor for a positive
potential for oxide copper and sulfide mineralization. The Castle deposit exhibits mineable
potential if stripping ratios were favorable. Utah Construction has calculated a drill-
indicated mineral inventory for the neighboring Castle porphyry copper-molybdenum
deposit. Using mineralized intervals in five holes, SM-20, SM-28, SM-32, SM-39 and UC-
1, the “inferred reserves” (report language) have been calculated as 91 million tons of
0.74% Cu and 0.065% MoS2. (Figure 5 for location map of borings). Another estimate for
Orcana Resources developed a tonnage and grade estimate from ore intervals in four drill
holes,UC-1, SM-20, SM-32, and SM-39. From these, a total of 39.4 million tons of 1.27%
Cu and 0.044% MoS2 were calculated. The latter totals are compiled from proven, probable
and possible resource criteria.

Mineral Processing and Metallurgical Testing

There have been no specific metallurgical tests for Sheep Mountain oxide ore. However,
copper recovery from such ore is a fairly standard procedure by heap leaching using sulfuric
acid, solvent extraction, and electrowinning technology (“SX-EW”). Copper oxides are less
expensive and typically more environmentally friendly to process than copper sulfides.

Mineral Resource and Mineral Reserve Estimates

As previously stated in Section 8.4, all estimates of “resources” and/or “reserves” from past
exploration are not considered to satisfy the requirements of National Instrument 43-101 or
the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”). Currently, the combination of
previous exploration results and surface sampling do not provide sufficient data for
credible, confirmable reserve estimates, only for ore reserve speculation if future
subsurface exploration develops as hoped.

Interpretation and Conclusion

Principal conclusions are:

1.     The Sheep Mountain Property is essentially at the beginning of the post-discovery
       stage of exploration. The surface copper oxide areas have been identified but not
       characterized at depth. Copper-molybdenum sulfide anomalies have been found at
       depth but have not been assessed in any detail for a larger, unified deposit.
       Available historic data is spotty and incomplete.

2.     The copper oxides are remnants of secondary copper sulfides that were ultimately
       generated from Laramide porphyry copper-molybdenum mineralization similar to
                                     - 20 -

     the neighboring Castle porphyry deposit. The Castle mineralization is hosted by
     Proterozoic granitoids of the Bradshaw complex and much of the ore is largely
     controlled by fracturing along the northwest-trending Cow Creek fault.

3.   Primary alteration of Proterozoic granitoids within the oxide zone is weak to strong
     and includes sericitization, minor to moderate potassic alteration, bleaching of
     biotite, some chlorite and kaolinite and scattered quartz veinlets. A pronounced
     zone of quartz stockwork veins is found on the Burro Spring window near a zone
     copper oxide zone. The overall alteration of surface rocks at Sheep Mountain
     suggests they are at a distal position to a mineralizing center. Some of the kaolinite
     is associated with the secondary oxidation of sulfides.

4.   The Tertiary volcanics covering much of the Proterozoic granitoids hosting
     mineralization are post-mineral. Isolated Proterozoic windows within the Tertiary
     cover are horst blocks bounded mostly by northwest normal faults that parallel the
     Cow Creek fault. The faults may have been periodically active since the
     Precambrian. The brittle deformation along these fault zones in Proterozoic rocks
     likely prepared the rocks for later Laramide mineralization.

5.   Copper oxides, primarily malachite, chrysocolla, and cuprite, are found in discrete
     locations within four areas of Proterozoic rocks known as Red Creek window, South
     Red Creek Window, Ash Creek Window, and the Burro Spring window. The oxides
     occupy networks of fine fractures in gneissic alaskite and other metamorphosed
     granitoid subtypes.

6.   The oxide remnants of other sulfides such as pyrite are relatively minor on outcrop
     and suggest an original low sulfide content that would not have produced sufficient
     acid to leach all the copper, thus leaving oxide copper behind but sufficient enough to
     deposit secondary chalcocite in supergene blankets at a former water table.

7.   The supergene sulfide zones in UC-2, UC-16, SM-1 and SM-2 are evidence of
     copper leaching and redeposition. The oxidation and leaching on the exposed horsts
     could have occurred after the volcanics were eroded away and prior to the
     emplacement of the volcanics in the early-mid Tertiary. The supergene enrichment
     in grabens below the volcanics/Proterozoic unconformity likely happened prior to the
     volcanic cover as likely did the supergene enrichment at the Castle deposit.

8.   In UC-2 below the chalcocite blanket there is a mixed zone of sulfide and oxide
     copper that extends for at least 250 feet. Former fluctuating water table conditions
     have likely caused multiple episodes of leaching and redeposition of secondary
     copper sulfides and copper oxides and substantially enriched grades above protore
     conditions. As at the Castle ore deposit, the broad Red Creek and South Red Creek
     fault zones bounding the horst window may also control leaching and subsequent
     redeposition for enhanced grades of secondary copper mineralization. Thus far
     drilling has not targeted the fault zones at Sheep Mountain.

9.   At Sheep Mountain the northwest faults and associated horst and graben structure
     have brought blocks of the mineralized Proterozoic section to the surface or under
     less volcanic cover than at the nearby Castle porphyry deposit. The excessive depth
     to Castle mineralization has rendered the deposit economicallyunattractive to mine.
     At Sheep Mountain the horsts have brought sulfide and oxide mineralization close
                                       - 21 -

       to the surface for shallow mining and permitted a longer period of weathering,
       oxidation and supergene enrichment.

10.    A reliable resource evaluation for the Sheep Mountain Property cannot be currently
       carried out that would satisfy NI 43 -101 Technical Report requirements. Cyprus
       Metals Company’s 1995 preliminary assessment of the copper oxide potential at the
       Red Creek window resulted in a geologic potential of 40 to 50 million tons of ore
       grade copper oxide rock with a 2:1 stripping ratio. MinQuest has calculated a
       conservative resource prognosis of 20 million tons of copper oxide ore averaging
       0.75% copper for the Red Creek window area. Both of these estimates are
       conceptual, and it is yet uncertain whether the target will be delineated as a mineral
       resource. No resources have been estimated for the other copper anomalies.

11.    The copper oxide at Sheep Mountain has become an attractive ore target largely
       because of the rise in the price of copper over the last few years. Evaluation of the
       sulfide mineralization potential is also encouraged because of the rising price of
       molybdenum. The oxide ore processing costs would be relatively inexpensive
       compared with upgrading conventional sulfide ore.


Thus far, MinQuest’s work has included a re-evaluation of the earlier available exploration
data, field observations, and rock sampling. The evaluation has led to a commitment for a
program to assess the oxide copper potential as well as to examine the sulfide zone for
indications of an expanded and economic mineralized system. The following includes the
objectives and planned work that will be carried out for the first phase of exploration.

1.     Phase 1 exploration will emphasize subsurface assessment of mineralization and
       geology on the Red Creek and South Red Creek windows by drilling. The primary
       objective of the drilling program will to assess the grade and depth interval of the
       copper oxide zone and partial oxide/sulfide zone. Secondly, the borings, by
       necessity of advancing through the oxide zone, will extend through the supergene
       sulfide zone advance possibly to protore to assess grade, mineralization and
       alteration characteristics, geologic controls, and geochemistry. Thirdly the data will
       be scrutinized to determine a relationship of the mineralization within a larger
       porphyry copper deposit model. This will be done through an examination of
       alteration assemblages, geochemical signatures, and geological controls of the
       mineralization. Plans for Phase 2 will depend on the Phase 1 results.

2.     Two fences of three reverse circulation holes each are planned on the Proterozoic
       rocks of the Red Creek window and one fence of three holes is intended for the
       South Red Creek window. Holes depths will extend to 600 feet or penetrate an
       appropriate distance into sulfide mineralization. The holes will be drilled at angles
       to cross the near vertical, brittle structure zones that comprise the Red Creek and
       South Red Creek faults. The copper oxides are associated with these fracture zones.
       Drill roads to the sites are not completed, and the exact boring locations have yet to
       be determined.

3.     The Red Creek window holes will be located on the Proterozoic outcrop in the
       northwest quarter of section 18 in the vicinity of the Jackpot 16 and Mule 59, 60,
                                             - 22 -

              and 61 claims. The borings will be inclined to the southwest, near normal to the
              Red Creek fault zone.The projected oxide/supergene copper zone shown in the fault
              zone on Figure 8 will be emphasized as a drill target.

       4.     Holes on the South Red Creek window will be located in the southwest quarter of
              section 21 in the approximate area of the Ray 132 claim. Hole directions will be
              northeast at appropriate angles to intersect the South Red Creek fault zone.

       5.     Direct costs for Phase 1 exploration will include drilling, assaying, geology
              oversite, dozer work, bonding for land use, annual claim assessment fees, per diem
              costs for drill crew and geology staff, and miscellaneous costs. Estimated projected
              expenses for a 30 day drilling period are itemized on the table below. The drill
              assay costs include chip samples every 10 feet, a duplicate for every 25 samples,
              resampling as appropriate and selected multielement analyses.

17.    Risk Factors

17.1   An investment in the securities of the Company is speculative and subject to certain risk
       factors, including the factors set out below:


       There is no trading market for the securities of the Company (the “Securities”). The
       Securities are speculative. The Company does not have a track record and there is little
       probability of short term profit. Subscribers may not be able to sell the Securities.
       Investors in the Securities should be prepared to accept the risks inherent in the natural
       resource exploration business and to risk losing all or part of their investment or to face
       the possibility of no return thereon.

       Environmental Regulations

       Environmental regulation is becoming increasingly stringent and costs and expenses of
       regulatory compliance are increasing. The mining industry in Canada and the United
       States is subject to legislation at both the federal and provincial levels concerning the
       protection of the environment. In particular, such legislation imposes high standards on
       the mining industry to reduce or eliminate the effects of wastes generated by extraction
       and processing operations and subsequently deposited on the ground or emitted into the
       air or water. Accordingly, the design of mines and mills and the conduct of overall
       extracting and processing operations is subject to the restrictions contained in such
       legislation. In addition, the construction, development and operation of a mine, mill and
       refinery typically entail compliance with applicable environmental legislation and/or
       review processes and the obtaining of land use and other permits, water licences and
       similar authorizations from various government agencies. In particular, legislation is in
       place for lands under federal jurisdiction or located in certain provinces which provides
       for the preparation of costly environmental impact assessment reports prior to the
       commencement of any mining operations. These reports entail a detailed technical and
       scientific assessment as well as a prediction of the impact on the environment of
       proposed development. Any failure to comply with the legislation referred to above may
       result in orders being issued thereunder which may cause operations to cease or to be
       curtailed or may require installation of additional facilities or equipment. Violators may
       be required to compensate those suffering loss or damage by reason of its mining
       activities and may be fined and/or imprisoned if convicted of an offence under such

       Base Metal, Gold Price and Volume Volatility
                                     - 37 -

The principal business of the Company is the exploration and development of base metal
and gold properties. The ability to attract capital to the Company is largely dependent on
movements in the price of gold. Gold prices fluctuate on a daily basis and are affected by
a number of factors beyond the control of the Company. If as a result of a sustained
decline in gold prices, financings were not available to meet cash operating costs, the
feasibility of continuing operations would be evaluated and if warranted, would be
discontinued. Although gold and base metal prices cannot be predicted with certainty, the
Company monitors supply/demand conditions, among other issues, all of which affect
world prices.

Nature of Mineral Explorations and Development Projects

Mineral exploration is speculative in nature, involves risks and frequently appears to be
non-productive. There is no assurance that the Company’s exploration efforts will be
successful. Success in establishing reserves and resources is a result of a number of
factors, including the quality of management, level of geological and technical expertise,
the quality of land available for exploration and other factors. Once mineralization is
discovered, it may take several years in the initial phases of drilling until production is
possible, during which time the economic feasibility of production may change.
Substantial expenditures are required to establish proven and probable reserves through
drilling and bulk sampling to determine the optimal metallurgical process to extract the
metals from the ore and, in the case of new properties, to construct mining and processing
facilities. Because of these uncertainties, no assurance can be given that the Company’s
exploration programs will result in the establishment or expansion of resources or

Licenses and Permits

The operations of the Company require licenses and permits from various government
authorities. The Company believes that it holds all necessary licenses and permits under
applicable laws and regulations and believes it is presently complying in all material
respects with the terms of such licenses and permits. However, such licenses and permits
are subject to change in various circumstances. There can be no guarantee that the
Company will be able to obtain or maintain all necessary licenses and permits that may
be required to explore and develop its properties, commence construction or operation of
mining facilities and properties under exploration or development or to maintain
continued operations that economically justify the cost.

Critical Accounting Policies

Preparing financial statements requires management to make estimates and assumptions
that affect the reported results. Management’s estimates are based on historical
experience and other assumptions that are believed to be reasonable under the
circumstances. The Company’s accounting policies are those that affect the Financial
Statements of the Company and are summarized in the notes to the financial statements.
The Company’s critical accounting policy is the capitalization of exploration
expenditures and the recognition of impairment of those assets. The decision to capitalize
exploration expenditures and the timing of the recognition that capitalized exploration is
                                            - 38 -

       unlikely to have future economic benefits can materially affect the reported earnings of
       the Company.
