log interpretation
The sixth hole was drilled to a depth of 113.2 meters before losing circulation and was abandoned. No coal seams were apparent.

The seventh hole, NJ-09-28C, was drilled to a depth of 51.5 meters before running into technical problems. This hole was abandoned and re-drilled as a rotary hole to a depth of 186.0 and encountered a 28.80 meter seam between 33.4 meters and 62.14 meters. Seam intercepts are as follows:

The eighth hole, # NJ-09-29C was drilled to a depth of 233.2 meters and
encountered a 12.3 meter seam between 42.1 meters and 54.4 meters. The hole
was positioned as an offset to Hole #14 of the 1973 Russian/Mongolian
exploration program.

The core has been logged, boxed and ready for testing at the Stewart Mongolia LLC laboratory in Ulaanbaatar.

Once additional drilling has been completed and laboratory results analyzed, the Company will be in the position to further evaluate the viability of the coal project for a coal liquefaction project. Independent geological and engineering studies will be required to determine if this potential use is technically and economically viable.

Kerry F. Griffin BSc., Diploma Eng Geol, MAIG, an independent consultant to the Company and the qualified person as defined by National Instrument 43-101, has reviewed and approved the technical content of this news release.
