I would personally like to thank our Board of Directors, for enabling myself to steer the helm as the company’s CEO of this brand-new resource company. Building shareholder value, is one of the company’s mandates and will do so by building out our deposit on our flagship, Northshore gold project. Lastly, I would like to thank our shareholders/owners in trusting the company in our vision to acquire the Northshore, Hemlo Eastern Flank Project, and the optioned Emmons Peak Project in our plan to become a leader in exploration and development in Canada’s prolific and world-class gold-bearing Greenstone Belts. Our Company is well positioned to begin advancing its highly prospective Ontario gold projects.”
About the Projects
Ready Set Gold is focused on advancing its nearly 7,000 hectare portfolio of gold projects including the wholly-owned Northshore Gold Project, the Hemlo Eastern Flank Project, and the optioned Emmons Peak Project, all of which demonstrate great discovery potential and expansion opportunities.
The 771 hectare Northshore Gold property is located in the Schreiber-Hemlo Greenstone Belt. The project contains the Afric Deposit, which remains one of Ontario’s largest undeveloped prospective gold deposits, holding an historic NI 43-101 (2014) Mineral Resource Estimate of 391,000 ounces gold Indicated in 12,360,000 tonnes at a grade of 0.99 g/t gold, and 824,000 ounces gold Inferred in 29,580,000 tonnes at a grade of 0.87 g/t gold using a cut-off of 0.50 g/t gold. The Afric Deposit area measures approximately 350 by 500 metres and is open for expansion in all directions as well as at depth.
Within a 600 metre radius outside of the defined Afric Deposit, there are several high-grade vertical quartz vein structures and a historically produced small scale high grade gold mine which have received limited to no modern exploration. The Company believes that these underexplored areas present substantial exploration and expansion upside for the Northshore Gold Project.
The Hemlo Eastern Flank property is two separate claim blocks for a total of 4,453 hectares. Both border a land package optioned by Barrick Gold Corporation in a recent transaction with Metalcorp and sits just 7km east of Barrick’s operating Hemlo Mine. The Hemlo Eastern Flank property is underlain by similar geology as that associated with the Hemlo deposit and is located along the same corridor. The Hemlo Mine has produced more than 21 million ounces of gold and Barrick announced at the end of 2020 its plans to extend its mine life and upgrading it to a Tier Two asset. (* The mineralization at the Hemlo Mine is not necessarily indicative of mineralization on the Hemlo Eastern Flank project.)
The Emmons Peak property totals 1,634 hectares and is in the Wabigoon Terrane of Ontario. The Wabigoon district hosts notable advanced gold projects such as Treasury Metals’ Goliath and the Goldlund deposits. The district also hosts key infrastructure such as highway access and a Federally approved mill. In 1982, prospectors discovered a narrow quartz vein on surface at the Emmons Peak property that assayed upwards of 14,000 g/t gold (up to 500 oz/ton) (MNDM Mineral Deposit Inventory: MDI52F10SE00051). Further work in 1985 identified additional veining where samples were taken that assayed more than 430 g/t gold (MNDM Mineral Deposit Inventory: MDI52F10SE00052). Limited to no modern exploration has been conducted on this property post-1990.
