About the Golden Arrow Gold Mine:

The Golden Arrow property consists of 17 mining patents and leases, and two mining claims covering 524 hectares in Hislop Township and located 65 kilometers east of the Town of Timmins in Ontario.  In 1981 and 1982, a total of 279,593 tons of ore was mined at a grade of 0.061 oz/t (2.09 g/t) from the Arrow open pit.  Mining ceased due to low gold prices.

The property was originally explored underground in the 1940s to by the Golden Arrow Mining Company Ltd. who sank a shaft to a depth of 435ft (130m) below surface and undertook about 700m of horizontal development on the 250ft (76m) and 400ft (122m) levels.

The Golden Arrow property is underlain by Mafic Flows and Syenite Intrusions with younger post mineral Diabase. Gold is associated with pyrite-quartz veining and hematitic/potassic alteration associated with a quartz vein stockwork within a syenite intrusion and related to a NE-SW structure associated with the Porcupine-Destor Fault Zone.  The property covers a two kilometre strike extent of this NE-SW structure.  The Golden Arrow gold deposit is located 5 km SW of the past-producing Ross Gold Mine which produced nearly one million ounces of gold between 1936 and 1989.  Also located in Hislop Twp are the presently producing Hislop Mine of St. Andrew Goldfields Ltd. and the Black Fox Mine of Brigus Gold Corp.  Please visit www.murgor.com for additional information about the Golden Arrow Gold Mine.
