The Hunt Zone is a shear-hosted deposit that has been traced to date by drilling for 650 metres along strike and to a depth of over 300 metres with gold grades up to 27.2 g/t over 4.27 metres.

The Hunt Zone is displaced by a steep fault that cuts the zone at an acute angle and produces a fault window between 250 and 350 metres in depth. Holes HT 177, 178 and 180 tested the Hunt zone below this fault without success.

Holes 179, 181, 182 & 183 tested the western extension of the Hunt Zone looking for a parallel (en echelon) shoot. The holes on section 1400E (179 & 181) were low grade; however the gold grades increased in the holes on section 1350E (182 & 183), which could be indicating the presence of a high grade shoot further to the west or down dip.

The Assean Lake project is a 60-40 joint venture between Canadian Gold Hunter Corp. and Rare Earth Metals Corp. Gold Hunter is the operator.

Drill results and technical data have been reviewed by Jan Christoffersen, P.Eng., a Qualified Person pursuant to NI-43-101. The mineralized drill core intervals are split in the field and sent to ALS Chemex in Vancouver for analysis. The intervals containing visible gold are assayed by fire-assay procedure for metallics gold. This procedure involves pulverizing a one-kg sample and passing the prepared pulp through a 150 mesh (106 micron) screen. The +150 mesh material is analyzed in its entirety by fire assay. The -150 mesh material is homogenized and a 50-gram subsample is assayed by fire assay with gravimetric finish. The samples from sections that did not contain visible gold were fused by fire assay and analyzed by atomic absorption spectroscopy. A series of standards are routinely introduced with each batch of samples. Quality controls include preparation and analysis statistics performed to industry standards.

ON BEHALF OF THE BOARD

Richard J. Bailes, President
