CLAIM PURCHASE AGREEMENT - DITEM EXPLORATIONS INC.

Bard Ventures Inc. (the "Company") is please to announce that it has entered into an agreement with Ditem Explorations Inc. ("Ditem") whereby Ditem can earn a 50% interest in 42 claim cells located in the Otish Mountains, north-central Quebec. The property is located approximately 24 km east of the recently discovered kimberlite cluster on the Tichégami/Otish mountain range (Tichégami project Ditem/Pure Gold joint venture), 40 km north-east of the Beaver Lake kimberlite and 65 km south-east of the Renard kimberlite cluster.

The property is located at the northern margin of the Otish Mountains range where rifting occurs and deeply seated structural elements can be expected, an important feature for the placement of kimberlite, the host rock for diamonds. Ditem plans to execute an exploration program in this area consisting of airborne magnetometer survey, till sampling and follow-up drilling. The program will be implemented as soon as possible.

Ditem will make a cash payment, issue 100,000 common shares and spend $200,000 in exploration expenditures on the property to earn its interest.

The foregoing is subject to the approval of regulatory bodies.

On behalf of:
Bard Ventures Ltd.
