Cameron Gold Camp Project Background
The Cameron Gold Camp Project is an advanced exploration project located in the southern part of western Ontario approximately 80 kilometres south-east of the town of Kenora.  The Project currently consists of two project areas namely Cameron and West Cedartree, both owned 100% by the Company. The Cameron gold deposit lies within the Cameron project area whilst Dubenski and Dogpaw are located 8-10km west of the Cameron deposit on the West Cedartree tenements (Figure 1). 

The combined Mineral Resources for the three deposits comprising the Cameron Gold Camp Project at cut-off grades appropriate to location for open cut and underground mining are summarised in Table 1.

This revised Mineral Resource estimate for the Cameron Gold Camp Project updates and replaces previously reported Mineral Resources announced by previous project owners Coventry Resources Inc. for the Cameron and Dubenski gold deposits dated 5 July, 2012 (JORC 2004 compliant) and the Dogpaw gold deposit dated 13 May, 2013 (JORC 2012 compliant).

The data, interpretation and techniques utilised in the estimates for the Mineral Resources are summarised in Appendix 1.
