(i) True Thickness unknown

Vice President of Exploration, Dr. George Gale, states, "We are now seeing that the B lense pinches and swells along strike and down dip, but it continues to provide high-grade sections. The grade and thickness is particularly encouraging as this mineralization appears to be mobilized material from some yet to be identified mineralized body. The exploration team is not only exploring the extents of the Discovery Zone mineralization, but also looking for targets which may represent the source to the mineralization discovered to date."

EXPLORATION UPDATE (outside of the Discovery Zone)

VMS Ventures is now compiling and interpreting the results of its 2008 summer geochemical program. The survey involved ground geochemical sampling over selected airborne geophysical anomalies and other areas of interest on the Company's extensive property package, all of which is prospective for additional VMS deposits in the prolific Flin Flon-Snow Lake greenstone belt. Preparation and target planning for the 2009 winter drill program on these properties is underway.
