(TSX-V: STK) has begun a two-week temporary suspension of the underground exploration at the Edwards mine property in the Goudreau-Lochalsh gold camp near Wawa, Ontario.

The plans include:
(a) Completing a milling agreement;
(b) Finalizing a mining plan for Edwards #1; and
(c) Securing financing for the mining and the continued underground development of the Edwards Mine project.

A combination of up to 10,000,000 flow-through units at $0.10 per flow-through unit, and up to 23,529,412 common share units at $0.085 per common unit.
Each flow-through unit will consist of one flow-through share and one-half of one common share purchase warrant.
Each common unit will comprise one common share and one warrant. Each warrant entitles the holder to acquire one common share at $0.12 per share for a period of 12 months from the closing date.
