Dr. D.R.

We are now well prepared to recommence mining by driving an additional 70 m of 3m x 4m ramp to the high-grade portion of the A-Zone, below the historic stopes where 15,000 tonnes of 30 gpt ore was mined and processed. Crews are being lined up to restart operations as soon as possible. Historic diamond drilling supports the size and grade of the vein at our target location."
About the Company
The Company is developing mining operations for gold on the Mon Gold Property, 40 km north of Yellowknife, NWT. Past production extracted 15,000 tonnes of ore to depths of only 15 m below surface, recovering an estimated 15,000 ounces of gold.
The Mon Gold Property consists of 11 contiguous mining leases and 3 mineral claims, comprising an aggregate 1,536.92 acres, located in the South MacKenzie Mining District, NWT. The Company is commencing mining and milling the high-grade A-Zone in a manner similar to past operations. The Discovery Mine, located 45 km north of the Mon Property started at 100 tpd and increased its production over 20 years to nearly 100,000 ounces per year, shutting down in 1969 (total production 1 million ounces of gold). The Con Mine, located 45 km to the south commenced at 100 tpd in 1938 and produced over 6 million ounces of gold. We feel that history of gold production in this belt supports our plans and designs.
