Currently drilling. BREZNIK Drilling on 1 of three known vein sets has resulted in + 500m of mineralisation. Currently drilling for resource. RAKITOVO High grade gold-silver mineralisation over 1km strike length. Significant gold-silver intersections from two recently completed diamond holes. PEROTO Earning 50% Situated between the operating mines of Chelopech copper-gold and the large Elatsite open pit porphyry copper mine. Historical 92,000m of drilling supporting a large Soviet gold-copper resource inventory (non JORC). To commence drilling within weeks. Slide9: Ogosta Project - Overview Situated on Bulgarian side of the border with Serbia incorporating the entire Govezhda mineral field. Significant prior exploration by Bulgarian State Exploration Company with over 40,000m drilling and 30,000m underground exploration adit development and trial mining. Gold-silver mineralisation (over 90 known veins) extends several hundred metres along strike and at least 100 metres down dip. Prior significant Soviet Resource Classification (non JORC) suggest potential for significant vein hosted epithermal style gold-silver deposit. Early focus: translation of reports, assessment of existing workings for re-sampling. Drilling has commenced - Ist DDH completed into target Vein set No. 9 awaiting assays. 2nd DDH started into target Vein set No. 6 andamp; 6a. Target Objective +1,000,000 oz gold with additional silver credits. Slide10: Ogosta Regional Geology Cambrian age Meta shales Sandstone andamp; basalt Ordovician age Conglomerates Sandstone andamp; Siltstones Drilling Slide11: Ogosta Long Section Example 2.38m @ 96.4gpt Au, 847gpt Ag Slide12: Breznik Project - Overview Situated 35km west of the capital Sofia. Substantial drilling by Bulgarian State (1985-1996) and Homestake Mining Company (1998-2001) returned strong trenching and drill results noting mineralisation below 150m of surface including 6m grading 5.5gpt Au. Euromax drilled 26 RC holes in a single fence line of holes (2004-2005) producing several intercepts greater than 6gpt gold over a continuous strike length of over 500 metres in one of three known vein sets. Mineralisation remains open at depth and along strike. SRK consider that the project demonstrates the existence of epithermal vein style mineralisation already containing a 'significant gold-silver deposit'. Diamond drilling underway to test depth extension for initial resource. Initial resource calculation early 2007. Initial Objective Target: 500,000 to 1,000,000 oz gold. Slide13: Breznik Project Geology Slide14: Breznik Long Section – North Vein North Vein gold mineralisation demonstrated to be continuous for over 500m strike Deposit remains open along strike and at depth below existing drilling Slide15: Rakitovo Project - Overview Situated in the Rhodope mountains in southern Bulgaria - an area that hosts numerous gold and base metal deposits. Evidence of ancient workings dating back to 400 BC. Drilling by Euromax (2004-2005) over a strike length of 1km defined gold-silver mineralisation to 100m below surface and intercepts of andgt;5gpt in 5 of 11 holes. Two main targets- Sreben Centre and Sreben North. Significant gold-silver intersections from two recent diamond holes. Mineralisation at Sreben Centre remains open along strike and down dip. Program to review results of exploration and develop program required to deliver an initial resource calculation SRK consider that the Project demonstrates 'the presence of intrusion hosted epithermal style gold-silver mineralisation'.

Situated between the operating mines of Chelopech copper-gold mine (Europe’s largest producing mine) and the large Elatsite open pit porphyry copper mine. Historical 92,000 metres of diamond drilling between 1960 -1975. Large Soviet Classification gold-copper resource inventory (non JORC) indicates significant mineralisation occurs on the project. Reports require translating and validation. Additional untested strong geophysical target identified.
