metres wide andbextending more than 900 metres along strike, was discovered. In 1997, an airborne EM-Mag survey was completed, followed by a ground HLEM geophysical survey, which together delineated a number of
Mag-EM trends and targets. Three (3) holes of dilling in 1997 focused on a geophysical anomaly referred as “Conductor B”, intersected up to 2.68% Cu, 0.14% Ni, 0.09% Co, and 9.7 g/t Ag. Numerous targets defined by
magnetic highs with coincident EM anomalies remain untested. The Company is preparing a mineral
exploration program over the claims that is planned to include a heliborne TDEM-Mag survey and a
surface exploration program, including prospecting, geological mapping, and diamond drilling.
Newfoundland Gold Properties
The Company is actively seeking joint venture partners to explore the Williams and Little Joanna
polymetallic/gold properties, located in the Botwood Basin of north-central Newfoundland, Canada.
The Williams Property is a new polymetallic discovery with an extensive area of anomalous
quartz-veined, brecciated, granite/sediment float, and subcrop with grab samples of up to 52 g/t Au
(1.52 oz/t Au). Mineralized and quartz-veined granites, black shales, siltstones and volcanics are
apparent over a distance of 3 km. Subcropping mineralized rocks are found over an area 200 to 300
metres in length and widths estimated at two to three metres. Two samples from subcrop collected by
the a previous owner assayed 5.8 g/t Au and 7.9 g/t Au. These samples were at least 200 metres
apart and occur in a unit of intensely silicified, brecciated quartz-veined black shales. These
grab samples contain up to 2% chalcopyrite (Cu), sphalerite (Zn), galena (Pb), and antimony (Sb)
with some assays returning >1000 ppm As.
The Little Joanna Property (the “Property”) is a new high-grade gold discovery in an area with
little known exploration. The main Little Joanna showing is a 25 to 31 cm wide compact quartz vein
located within a highly altered, carbonated sedimentary mélange of shale, conglomerate and
siltstone. Hand trenching by the vendors exposed the vein for a couple of metres. Fine, visible
gold is observed throughout the vein and selected grabs samples by the vendors assayed up to 734
grams per tonne (g/t) gold (Au) (23 oz/ton Au); average sampling of the quartz vein is
approximately 189 g/t Au (5.9 oz/t Au.). As much of the Property is covered by overburden, the
Company believes that significant potential exists for the discovery of additional gold-bearing
quartz veins. Past work on the Property by Noranda Exploration (1988-1989) reported up to 44g/t Au
in boulder samples and outlined 1.15 g/t Au and 5.2 g/t Au basil till sample anomalies. A total of
seven grab samples, all with anomalous gold (+40 ppb Au), were collected by the Company from quartz
vein bearing sedimentary rocks, and range from 40 ppb Au to 229.3 g/t Au (6.70 oz/t Au), averaging
48.5 g/t Au (1.41 oz/t Au). The highest grade sample (229.3 g/t Au) contained visible gold and was
collected from subcrop near the main showing, whereas the next two highest grade samples, (38.7 g/t
and 70.7 g/t Au), were collected from outcrop of quartz vein bearing sedimentary rocks.
