Goldman Sachs has increased its forecast price for copper in 2011,
saying the fundamentals for the red metal are by far the strongest in
the complex. It warns that as fresh mine capacity isn't about to come
to the rescue of the market for at least 2-3 years, inventories will
dwindle and the price will rise.

    felsic and andesitic tuff peripheral to the
    west and southwest margins of a
    granodiorite porphyry stock.

•   Mineralization outcrops at surface and

Exploration Targets – Geophysics & Drilling

• Seel Cu-Ag-Zn Breccia
    •   Copper breccia located 100m north of Cu-Au and Cu-Mo porphyries. It remains open at
        depth, and plunges towards the porphyry.
    •   Priority testing to 700m based on Huckleberry's Breccia Hole of 493m @ 0.38 % Cu.

• OX Cu-Mo Porphyry
    •   Deposit open at depth and to the east for exploration.


• Damascus Ag-Pb-Zn
    •   Open at depth below 30m, 500m strike length open in both directions. Two other veins (K
        vein and Hilltop vein) lie to the west approximately 300meters and may be connected at
        depth based on the Damascus vein which is dipping towards them.

• Regional work
    •   In excess of 18 new Cu and Au targets identified from recent airborne magnetics and
        radiometrics survey .
    •   Four area based permits have submitted for drilling, two have been received.
    •   Geophysics planned for May 2011.
    •   Drilling planned for June 2011.

    generated by the airborne geophysical survey.

    Damascus Silver Vein                                     25km @$6000/km                $150,000
•   Conduct 25 line km of 3DIP.

•   Drill test along strike and to depth the Damascus Vein
    system.


Auro Property
                                                             10,000m @ $300/m             $3,000,000
•   Drill test the Auro gold property directly adjacent to
    Richfield Resources Blackwater Project.


                                                             •   Total:               $4,980,000
