Ron was also Chairmanof Brett Resources Inc., which was acquired by Osisko Mining Corp. in the Spring of 2010. His knowledge ofmineral exploration and aggressive business acumen resulted in exploration success on three WesternCanadian gold and silver projects (all of which became producing mines): the Eskay Creek and Snip depositsin British Columbia and the Brewery Creek deposit in the Yukon.James G. Pettit: Director, PresidentMr. Pettit has been President of Aben Resources since November 2002. He offers over 15 years experiencewithin the industry specializing in finance, corporate governance, management, and compliance. Hespecializes in the early stage development of private, as well as public companies. His background over thepast 15 years has been focused primarily within the resource sector where he has managed and directedjunior mining companies through good times and bad.Timothy Termuende: Director, Qualified Person, P.Geo.Tim Termuende serves as a Director of the Company and is a professional geologist with over 30 yearsexperience in the mineral exploration industry. He has been continuously active in mineral explorationthroughout western Canada since 1976, and currently oversees a broad range of ongoing exploration projectslocated throughout British Columbia, Saskatchewan, the Yukon and the Northwest Territories.

Since earning a Bachelor Degree in Geology from St. Francis Xavier University in 2003, he hasworked on a number of projects, exploring for a range of commodities including Au, Ag, Cu, Fe, Pb, U, and Zn.He has spent 2 years as a project geologist and manager on exploration programs in BC, and the Yukonfocusing on gold systems. Mike currently resides in Kimberley, BC and has worked with TerraLogic Explorationsince 2008.Carl Schulze, B.Sc., P. Geo.: Qualified Person – Justin Gold ProjectCarl Schulze has been active as a geologist involved in all aspects of mineral exploration for the past 27years. He has extensive exploration experience and project management throughout the Yukon, northernOntario, British Columbia and Alaska. Carl was active in the Sprogge-Justin area of south-eastern Yukon inthe late 1990s and was responsible for the discovery of numerous gold-bearing showings in the area includingthe Kangas Zone. Carl was the Resident Geologist for the Government of Nunavut for two years gainingexpertise working within Canadas aboriginal communities. He has also been a Director of the Yukon Chamberof Mines since late 2003 and was its President from 2007 to 2010.

  • Aben owns a 40% interest and Canterra Minerals Corp. (TSX-V: CTM) owns the other60% of the Mann Lake property, which is located approximately 25 kilometres to theSSW of the McArthur River Mine and 15 kilometres to the NE of Camecos Millennium(U3O8) discovery, and occurs at the northern extent of the B1 conductorIn June 2006 Cameco Corp, (TSX: CCO), UEM Inc., and International Enexco (TSX-V:IEC) joint venture on the adjoining Mann Lake property, which is adjoining AbensMann Lake project to the east, announced two high-grade intervals which averaged7.12% U308 over 0.25 metres and 5.53% U308 over 0.4 metresJanuary 2013, Cameco Corporation (52.5%) with International Enexco (30%) andAreva Resources (17.5%) announced that a 21,000 metre (69,000 feet) diamond drillprogram on their Mann Lake uranium project (adjacent to Abens Mann Lake Project)has commenced by the project operator, CamecoThe budget for the 2013 program is $6,000,000, three rigs will be turning on theproperty. In November 2012, Denison Mines Corp. subscribed for 3,600,000 units ofInternational Enexco at a price of $0.50 per unit for aggregate gross proceeds of$1,800,000. Denisons strategic investment was proportional to Enexcos portion of the2013 exploration program on their Mann Lake Property7Mann Lake Uranium ProjectMann Lake Uranium Project
  • Aben owns 49% of the Huard-Kirsch Lakes Uranium Project with DenisonMines Corp. (TSX: DML) owning the other 51%The property is situated approximately 20 kilometres to the NW of CamecoCorporations high-grade McArthur River Uranium MineDuring 2006, Denison Mines completed several exploration surveys on theHuard-Kirsch Lakes project. Exploration has consisted of gridestablishment, boulder geochemistry, as well as airborne and groundgeophysicsThe property is interpreted to be underlain by a conductive meta-sedimentary sequence that has never been drill tested. Interpretations ofthis data suggest that the anomaly represents a favorable target forexploration for unconformity uranium depositsIn 2007, a single hole was drilled by Denison Mines to a depth of 811metres on an untested geophysical anomaly. The hole intersectedfavourable graphitic pelites at a depth shallower than expected. Theoccurrence of the unconformity and prospective uranium host rocks atshallower depths is a very positive development on the property8Huard – Kirsch LakesUranium ProjectHuard – Kirsch LakesUranium Project

The Company has not yet completed the work necessary to verify some of the exploration results and since these resultsare historical in nature and predate National Instrument 43-101 standards they should not be relied upon.
