About River Valley Project

In January 2011, Pacific North West Capital Corp. successfully negotiated the 100% acquisition of the River Valley PGM Project from Anglo Platinum Limited. The River Valley Project is one of the largest undeveloped primary PGM projects in North America. The project has excellent infrastructure support and is located 100 km from the city of Sudbury, Ontario, Canada's largest nickel‐copper‐PGM mining and metal recovery centre.

In May 2011, Pacific North West Capital Corp. commenced a $5 million drill program on the project. The program was successfully completed in May 2012. Data from 2011-2012 resource drilling was combined with holes drilled previously up to 2005, and delivered to Wardrop Engineering for a mineral resource update.

The NI43‐101 compliant mineral resources for the River Valley Project effective May 1, 2012 are illustrated in the table below:
