    Drilling at the Wyoming Prospect within the Tomingley Gold Project
    near the Company's Peak Hill gold operation in the central west of
    New South Wales commenced late February. A diamond core drill and an
    air core drill were positioned at Wyoming One and Wyoming Three
    respectively but progress was slow initially due to heavy rain in the
    region. The widespread rain also delayed the arrival on site of the
    RC drill which did not commence operations until mid-March.

    The core rig has completed two holes (NQ core) targeting the area of
    WY 376 intersection ("keel mineralisation") at the north end of
    Wyoming One. The holes were designed to provide an understanding of
    the geological controls prior to the major RC resource definition
    drilling programme. Hole WY 409D deviated to the north at depth,
    intersecting hangingwall mineralisation and a broad alteration zone
    with minor quartz veining within andesitic volcaniclastic rocks.
    WY 411D swung to the south but intersected the hangingwall zone,
    contact mineralisation and an extensively altered porphyry containing
    visible gold (sampling of the porphyry is still in progress). These
    holes suggested that the "keel" zone is controlled by a cross cutting
    structure, and remains a definite target.

    The RC resource definition programme commenced and 12 holes have been
    completed at Wyoming One. Results are available for three holes to
    date. WY481 and 483 were drilled to the north to intersect a possible
    cross cutting structure in the "keel" zone (WY482 was abandoned due
    to a lost bit and redrilled as WY483). Intensely altered and veined
    porphyry was intersected throughout WY481 with the structure
    intersected between 208 219 metres. WY480, the first of the infill
    resource definition drill holes, intersected the hangingwall zone
    from 33-42 metres and strongly oxidised contact and porphyry
    mineralisation between 57 and 92 metres.

    All holes drilled at a nominal inclination of -60 degrees or, -65

    Gold analysis by 30g fire assay from 1 metre half core or 3 metre
    composites of RC samples.

    Two large diameter core (PQ/HQ) geotechnical holes (WYGT 001 and WYGT
    002) have also been drilled. These holes cored from surface to assist
    with developing mining parameters for the Wyoming One ore body.

    The aircore drill has completed 55 holes at Wyoming Three. This
    drilling was designed to examine the potential for extensions to the
    east, west and north of the known mineralisation, and also to provide
    additional information on the orientation of some of the existing
    mineralised zones. Several new zones of quartz veining and alteration
    were identified, expanding the potential of the area. Results have
    been received for 45 holes with many 3 metre composite samples
    returning plus 0.5g/t gold and several generating substantial
    intercepts. Many holes failed to penetrate the extensive quartz
    veining and these zones will be drilled by RC as part of the resource
    definition drilling programme.
