A. Our objectives are to obtain reasonable assurance about whether the FinancialStatements as a whole are free from material misstatement whether due to fraud or errorand to issue an auditor's report that includes our opinion. Reasonable assurance is a highlevel of assurance but is not a guarantee that an audit conducted in accordance with SAswill always detect a material misstatement when it exists. Misstatements can arise fromfraud or error and are considered material if individually or in the aggregate theycould reasonably be expected to influence the economic decisions of users taken on thebasis of these Financial Statements.

i) Identify and assess the risks of material misstatement of the financial statementswhether due to fraud or error design and perform audit procedures responsive to thoserisks and obtain audit evidence that is sufficient and appropriate to provide a basis forour opinion.

However future events or conditions may cause the Company to cease to continue asa going concern.

v) Evaluate the overall presentation structure and content of the FinancialStatements including the disclosures and whether the Financial Statements represent theunderlying transactions and events in a manner that achieves fair presentation.

C. Materiality is the magnitude of misstatements in the Financial Statements thatindividually or in aggregate makes it probable that the economic decisions of areasonably knowledgeable user of the Financial Statements may be influenced.

We also provide those charged with governance with a statement that we have compliedwith relevant ethical requirements regarding independence and to communicate with themall relationships and other matters that may reasonably be thought to bear on ourindependence and where applicable related safeguards.
