Barker, NAT's Chief Executive Officer. Press release notice of this grant falls under standard compliance requirements of the TSX Venture Exchange.

Miljenko Horvat, Chairman of the board, stated, "We have an extremely talented management team and it is our policy to employ stock options as incentive.

We look forward to management driving to commercialization with the goal of establishing commercial partnerships."
