In addition, the Company has scheduled its Annual General Meeting of Shareholders on the 9th of June at 2:30 pm to be held at the Toronto Board of Trade.

Technical information in this press release has been reviewed and approved by Andrew Cheatle, P. Geo., Vice President of Exploration at Treasury Metals, who is a qualified person under the definitions established by National Instrument 43-101.

The Company has implemented a quality assurance and quality control (QA/QC) program to ensure sampling and analysis of all exploration work is conducted in accordance with the CIM Exploration Best Practices Guidelines. The drill core is sawn in half with one-half of the core samples shipped to Accurassay Laboratories in Thunder Bay, Ontario. The other half of the core is retained for future assay verification, and/or metallurgical testing. Other QA/QC procedures include the insertion of blind blanks and standards for every tenth sample in the sample stream. Selected quarter core duplicates were assayed for 5% of the samples. The laboratory re-assays 10% of all samples (pulps and rejects) and additional checks are routinely run on anomalous values including gravimetric analysis and pulp metallics. Gold analysis is conducted by lead collection, fire assay with atomic absorption and / or gravimetric finish on a 30 gram sample. Check assays by a secondary lab are completed as necessary.
