    About Augen Gold

    Augen Gold is a gold exploration company with 24,335 hectares of recently
acquired mining claims in the southern Swayze Greenstone Belt, including the
formerly producing Jerome Gold Mine. The claims cover a 45 kilometer long
section of the Ridout Deformation Zone, believed to be the western extension
of the Kirkland Lake-Larder Lake Break. The geological setting is comparable
to the major gold camps of Timmins and Kirkland Lake, and the claims contain
numerous gold showings that have received very little historical exploration.
Augen Gold is the first company to have assembled such a coherent ground
position and has performed a detailed airborne geophysical survey over the
whole area, and the Company's sampling program has confirmed the historically
reported gold values. The correlation of many gold showings with geophysical
features indicates excellent potential for the discovery of additional
deposits. The Company's objectives are to aggressively explore the gold
showings that correlate with geophysical anomalies, continue resource
definition at the Jerome Mine, and to expand its property portfolio with
highly prospective mineral assets.
