Copper Duke covers 10 km x 5 km within the Company's, 100% owned, 90 km x 20 km, Dynasty Copper-Gold Belt. It is a large, porphyry-style, target with high-grade epithermal gold and silver vein swarms and stockworks peripheral to the main, disseminated, mineralization. The Dynasty Copper-Gold Belt hosts eight such porphyry-style systems with associated large quartz-sulphide vein swarms and stockworks.
"Huato" and "Blanquillo" comprise two target areas, 6 km apart, at Copper Duke, where a strongly altered (propylitic) Tertiary andesitic volcanic sequence has been intruded by a number of porphyries with epithermal vein swarms (see news releases dated January 23, 2006 and April 12, 2006).
New Channel Sampling
The Company has now received assay results from an additional 61 channel rock chip samples taken over an area of 3 km x 2.5 km, on newly-discovered, epithermal vein swarms at Huato. Results range from 0.1 g/t to 51.87 g/t gold and 0.2 g/t to 991 g/t silver. The channel samples vary in width from 0.2 m to 2.1 m and average 1.0 m. Results are positive and significant values are tabulated below:
A ground magnetic survey has also now been completed at Huato. The survey covered 4.5 sq. km, with 25 line km being measured for magnetics. Results currently are being compiled and evaluated.
Drilling continues at the Dynasty Goldfield, with two diamond drilling rigs turning. The new drill holes are testing recently-discovered vein systems in the project.
On April 24, 2006, the Company reported initial estimates by Al Maynard & Associates, of Perth, Australia, of resources in the Dynasty Goldfield. The estimates, based on the results of earlier exploration, were 424,422 ounces of gold and 4,762,935 ounces of silver in the "measured and indicated" category and 427,017 ounces of gold and 5,521,474 ounces of silver in the "inferred" category. See table, below, for full details. Estimated resources are expected to increase with continuing exploration of this grassroots discovery.

Quality Control and Assurance
Exploration of the Company's properties is under the supervision, of Greg Whitfield, the Company's Exploration Manager and a "qualified person", as defined by National Instrument 43-101. Mr. Whitfield is responsible for the preparation of technical information in this news release. Rock channel sample widths are those of the samples and may not be true widths of the mineralized vein structures. Samples are sealed on the property and shipped to the BSI Inspectorate laboratory in Quito, Ecuador for preparation. Sample pulps are shipped by BSI Inspectorate to its laboratory in Lima, Peru for gold fire assay, silver and multi-element ICP analysis.
