Exploration Program Update
During the week of March 11th through 15th, management met with a number of the regulatory bodies in Utah including the Bureau of Land Management (“BLM”) and the Department of Oil, Gas and Minerals. The meetings were held in relation to permitting the company’s upcoming drilling program at the Temple Mountain vanadium property, which is to consist of two phases: an initial 10-hole reverse circulation drill program totaling 3,000 feet which will focus on testing known zones of mineralization and a second phase program to follow-up on targets identified through the upcoming geophysical surveying and regional exploration.
The Phase I drill program will commence once all the permits have been received and O’Keefe drilling has been contracted to complete the program. The radon pot electret geophysical survey is anticipated to commence within 14 days. The regional exploration team, which will be conducting mapping and sampling is being mobilized with the program expected to commence in one week.

We believe the combination of drilling historical showings plus geophysics should allow us to expediently and efficiently delineate the vanadium rich mineralization at Temple Mountain.”
