The company announced that it will undertake a soil sampling/prospecting program that will be similar to the summer 2004 program.

Two reconnaissance soil traverses have recently been completed in the central and southeast portion.The northern most soil line runs nearly perpendicular to a 4.4-km long linear airborne conductivity anomaly that is inferred to correspond to a major basin bounding growth fault. This line contains a 300-m-wide zone with zinc in soils greater than 100 ppm (207, 268, and 112 ppm) that correlates with the linear geophysical conductor. The southern most soil line is located about three kilometres west of a known showing where numerous values in excess of 10 per cent zinc have previously been reported. Almost half of the soil samples from the southern line (45 %) contain zinc greater than 100 ppm (115 to 450 ppm), and 25% of the samples contain copper greater than 100ppm (109.5 to 295 ppm). The zones of anomalous zinc and copper also contain elevated silver, Barium, and Molybdenum

Precious and base metal indications include values of up to 0.15 g/t gold, 3.8 g/t silver and 1370 ppm zinc throughout select sampled intervals of up to 1 meter in the first two drill holes on the Tanner target. Anomalous pathfinders include arsenic (to 240 ppm, molybdenum (to 92 ppm), nickel (to 180 ppm) and tin (to 18ppm). Sedex style system thought to be present over at least 750 m strike length on the property. In 2001, A limited airborne geophysical survey covered the area of the Tanner claims. The objective of the survey was to identify a geophysical signature that would indicate the presence of buried sulphide mineralization. A large airborne geophysical conductivity anomaly with resistivity values within the range of published values expected for massive sulphide mineralization was outlined. The conductive zone, outlined over some 4,000 meters by some 300 meters in width, coincides with active transported gossans and bedded barite horizons. Although graphite occurrences have been documented within the shale package, further testing will be required to determine if the conductivity values may reflect the presence of unexposed sulphide mineralization which would be the causative source of the gossanous deposits. In 2000, a 40 man day mapping program was carried out in the vicinity of the gossan identified in 1998. Two similar gossans were found within a 3 kilometer radius of the first such occurrence. Bedded barite was identified in the vicinity of two of these gossan occurrences and the presence of finely laminated pyrite beds within the shales was noted. The absence of any significant oxidizing sulphides in the area that could account for the large gossans observed at the head of creeks prompted Manson Creek to include the Tanner area as part of the airborne geophysical coverage in 2001. In 1998, helicopter supported stream sediment geochemical sampling and prospecting was conducted. Some 600 stream sediment samples were collected, a portion of which came from the Craig and NAD properties. Although no high geochemical signatures were recognized on Tanner, a very significant transported gossan was noted to occur at the head of a stream covered by the regional sampling work.
