Condor, as indicated in our Press Release of March 26, 2003, is involved in a Joint Venture Agreement with 1458216 Ontario Ltd. for the exploration and development of its diamond properties in the Attawapiskat-James Bay Lowlands of Northern Ontario. The Joint Venture, in which Condor has a 75.92% interest has acquired an extensive data package as a result of an expenditure of $500,000 which occurred in March through June 2003. This data package has acquired detailed geophysical data (including some geochemical data) over an area ranging some 300 kms from Akimiski Island off the west coast of James Bay leading to the west through the Debeers Victor pipe area and through to the west of the Kyle kimberlites. Many of Condor's claims are in close proximity to the Debeers Victor Pipe Project, the Metallex properties and the Kyle kimberlites, all of which have received substantial public attention recently. Condor's geophysicists are currently finalizing their evaluation and prioritization of numerous targets identified by the geophysics and geochemical data.

One of Condor's priorities will be to stake further priority targets indicated by the geophysics. In April and May of 2003 Condor carried out an additional staking program which acquired some 18,000 additional acres of claims containing approximately 35 targeted potential kimberlitic features bringing its acreage total in the James Bay Lowlands to approximately 71,000 acres. The recent staking program was carried out as a result of the initial evaluation and prioritization made by its geophysicists on the data packages. Significant additional staking will occur once final evaluation of the data package is completed.


On Condor Gold Corp.'s Jackrabbit gold project in Chester Township near Gogama, Ontario, the Corporation's consulting engineers, SNC Lavalin Inc. are completing final amendments to a Notice of Project, Status Form-6 for advance exploration/production. Condor had expected that the original closure plan would be filed and approved prior to this date however, necessary amendments to this plan are being carried out by SNC Lavalin. The Notice of Status Form-6 is expected to be filed in early July, 2003. The expected approval date and completion of the comment period are expected to occur by August, 2003 at which time Condor would be in a position to commence it's advanced exploration plan in respect to its Area 3 Open Pit in the Jackrabbit Gold Project at Gogama.
