Planned 2014 Exploration

The company is planning to move forward with exploration on the road accessible, Big Easy epithermal, low sulphidation, Au/Ag property, in eastern Newfoundland, in the summer and fall of 2014. Proposed work includes continued prospecting along the Big Easy trend, follow up soil geochemistry, prospecting and sampling on the ET zone, grid extension to the south to the ET zone from the Big Easy zone and a Phase 3 diamond drilling program to test the Big Easy system at depth, below 250 m vertical, where the bonanza Au/Ag veins are thought to lie. The budget for the planned exploration is in the $300,000 range and is contingent on financing. A Junior Exploration Assistance (JEA) grant for the maximum $100,000 has been applied for through the Newfoundland and Labrador Department of Natural Resources. This grant, if approved, is contingent on matching funding to be raised through either a private placement or a joint venture on the property.

The Big Easy zone is a "classic" low sulphidation, epithermal, system and although very old, dated at around 570 Ma, is relatively pristine and undeformed. Significant gold and silver values including up to 7.9 g/T Au and 130 g/T Ag over 1.2 m in DDH BE-11-12 and 335 g/T Ag and 2.5 g/T Au over 0.25 m in a quartz adularia vein in DDH BE-11-7, have been located. Banded colloidal silica (hot spring deposits) found in outcrop in two areas, 600 m apart, and bladed textures (indicative of boiling?) in drill holes and surface samples indicate that we are at or near the paleosurface and above the level that bonanza style gold/silver values should be located, typically 250-500 m below the surface (or paleosurface), where the hot springs are found. Two drilling programs, in 2011 and 2012, located significant Au/Ag mineralization and associated alteration over a 1 km strike length but have not tested the Big Easy zone to depth.
