Proceeds of the financing will be used to fund the exploration and
development program to advance Roxmark's holdings of the Northern Empire Gold
Mine and the Nortoba gold and molybdenum property in the Beardmore mining camp
in Northern Ontario.
As previously announced, Roxmark will commence a drilling program to test
the additional known strike length of 1,200 metres still undrilled on the west
extension of the Contact Zone at its Northern Empire property. Roxmark also
announced that it is planning to reopen the Northern Empire Mine and develop
the resources from underground workings.
The Northern Empire Mine was operated successfully by Newmont Mines from
1934 to 1941. The mine was serviced by a shaft to a depth of 2,460 feet and
produced 149,000 ounces of gold from 426,000 tons of ore at a recovered grade
of 0.35 oz/t Au. The on-site 200TPD mill (expandable to 500TPD) was built in
1982 and upgraded and permitted by Roxmark. It processed gold and molybdenum
ores in 2005 and 2006, respectively.
