The Company also advises that, at its Annual General Meeting held on Wednesday, April 19, 2006, all resolutions put before the meeting were passed, including the required yearly approval of the Company's 2002 Incentive Stock Option Plan and the appointment of Smythe Ratcliffe, Chartered Accounts, as auditors for the ensuing year. All directors were re-elected with the exception of Mr. Anthony Frizelle who elected not to stand for re-election due to other commitments. We would like to take this opportunity to thank Mr. Frizelle for all of his time and efforts on behalf of the Company over the past 2 years and we wish him success with his future endeavours. The Board anticipates appointing a replacement for Mr. Frizelle in the near future.

The Company further announces that, subject to required annual acceptance for filing of the 2002 Stock Option Plan by the TSX Venture Exchange, the Company has granted to directors, officers, employees and consultants, incentive stock options to purchase up to an aggregate 1,400,000 shares in the capital stock of the Company. The options are exercisable at a price of $2.80 per share and expire on May 1, 2008.

Cardero is well financed with $14 million in the treasury and well positioned to continue to explore its projects in Mexico, Peru, and Argentina. The common shares of the Company are currently listed on the TSX Venture Exchange (symbol CDU), the American Stock Exchange (symbol CDY) and the Frankfurt Stock Exchange (symbol CR5). The Company is actively evaluating gold, copper and iron projects, which will continue to ensure the recognition of Cardero as a world-class exploration and development company.
