Coronet Metals Inc. Acquires Critical Mass Land Position in Meguma Gold Belt

Vancouver, British Columbia–(Newsfile Corp. – May 18, 2018) – Coronet Metals Inc. (TSXV: CRF) (FSE: 2CM) (OTC Pink: CORMF) (the “Company”) is pleased to announce that it has entered into an agreement that will allow the company to gain a 100% interest in a large land position in one of Canada’s historic gold districts. The Company will acquire 3,888 mineral claims totalling over 62,000 hectares becoming one of the provinces largest single mineral claim holders and a leading gold exploration company in Nova Scotia. These claims were staked along the under-explored trends of known gold producing anticlinal structures and the Company estimates that it will control approximately 242 km (total strike length) of gold-prospective anticlines.

Through this acquisition the Company believes it has a unique opportunity to control the largest strike-length share of projected anticlines in the province and will employ state of the art clean technology exploration that will assess the true gold potential. In order to better define these anticlinal trends, and to focus an aggressive Phase 1 exploration program, the company has initiated a 12,342 kilometre aeromagnetic and radiometric survey along with a 1,110 square kilometres of LiDAR survey.

Mr. Theo van der Linde, President of the Company stated: “The awakening of Nova Scotia’s gold fields due to a recognition that an economic disseminated gold exploration and production model exists in the Meguma gold belt offers our shareholders a rare opportunity to participate in a regional-scale gold exploration platform. On behalf of shareholders, I extend my appreciation to Coronet’s talented technical team who have helped to position our company with this exciting project.

Nova Scotia — A Gold-Rich Past and Future

Nova Scotia has a rich history of gold discovery and production, and has been one of Canada’s first gold mining camps with production dating back to 1861. Between 1862 and 1927, 966,241 ounces of gold were mined from 2,184,850 tons of crushed material (G. Malcolm 1929 Memoir). Historic exploration has focused on narrow vein high-grade gold deposits but the discovery in the 1980’s of significant disseminated gold within argillite shales at the Touquoy deposit, and the opening of a new mine by Atlantic Gold has renewed interest in Nova Scotia’s historic gold districts.

The Company’s mineral claims are adjacent and along trend from Atlantic Gold’s Touquoy disseminated open-pit gold deposit. Atlantic Gold has outlined a Measured plus Indicated resource of 10.1 million tonnes grading 1.5 gram per tonne for a total of 480,000 ounces of gold, plus an inferred resource of 1.6 million tonnes and 77,000 ounces of gold (Atlantic Gold, August 2014).

Upcoming Exploration Work

In conjunction with this new project acquisition, the Company has initiated a multi-phase exploration program aimed at defining and drill testing numerous targets moving-forward. Phase 1 exploration will include:

  • A detailed (100 metre line spacing) 12,000 km airborne geophysics and LiDAR program which is one of the largest modern-day airborne initiatives in Nova Scotia.
  • Re-interpretation of past geophysical work of known deposits to develop a proprietary “fingerprint” model for identifying new deposits within the project.
  • Reprocessing and modeling of new aeromagnetic, radiometrics and LiDAR.
  • Development of a 3D prospectively model identify geology, structures and alteration that will be vectors to new gold mineralization.
  • The introduction of clean technology field methods and assessment tools to allow geologist to focus exploration on the most prospective ground.

The company intends to follow up Phase 1 with a 100,00m comprehensive drill program to be completed prior to the end of calendar 2019. The Nova Scotia exploration team are some of the most experienced geologists within the Nova Scotia gold districts and they will continue to use modern exploration methods and develop new exploration techniques to better define prospective gold targets.

The Company is well funded and able to execute on its aggressive exploration plans in Nova Scotia, as well as across its broader project portfolio.


In conjunction with the acquisition, the Company will purchase all of the shares from arm’s-length vendor by issuing 15.5 million common shares of the Company. The vendors shall retain a 2% gross royalty on the project. Finders’ fees of $200,000 in cash and 8% common shares will be paid to qualified arm’s-length parties in connection with the acquisition.

Canada’s Island Garden Begins CAD$35 Million Expansion in Prince Edward Island to Support Launch of New FIGR Brand

By Canadas Island Garden Inc.

Premium Quality Cannabis Company to Create Between 100 and 200 Jobs by 2020

CHARLOTTETOWN, CANADA / ACCESSWIRE / MAY 18, 2018 / Canada’s Island Garden today unveiled a new FIGR brand, which reflects the scientific rigor and decades of agronomic excellence for which the Company is known.

Since the acquisition of 75 percent of Canada’s Island Garden by Canadian Cultivated Products, a wholly owned indirect subsidiary of Alliance One International, the companies have been working on a new naming and branding concept. Canadian Cultivated Products will be rebranded to FIGR Cannabis, Canada’s Island Garden to FIGR East and Goldleaf Pharm, a sister company in Simcoe, Ontario, to FIGR Norfolk.

“Our Company has always believed that creativity can figure out almost anything. Our new FIGR brand represents our Company’s efforts to provide products of a consistent quality that are handcrafted with unconventional thinking” said Edwin Jewell, president of Canada’s Island Garden. “We pride ourselves on the unique combination of generations of horticulture excellence and modern agricultural practices to create high-quality products which customers can trust and enjoy.”

FIGR products will become available to the public in Canada as soon as sales for the recreational adult market are legalized. Sales to medical patients in Canada will remain under the current branding of Canada’s Island Garden.

The new brand was announced at the groundbreaking of FIGR’s significant expansion in Prince Edward Island. Phase 1 of the expansion, which includes a 166,000-square-foot greenhouse and 54,000-square-foot warehouse, is a CAD$35 million investment. The warehouse is being constructed to also accommodate Phase 2 of the expansion, which would add an additional 90,000 square feet of greenhouse space. Phase 1 will increase the facility’s annual production capacity to 18,000 kilograms. Upon completion of Phase 2, FIGR is anticipated to have an annual production capacity in excess of 35,000 kilograms.

“Our new state-of-the-art facilities will allow us to cultivate cannabis that consistently meets and exceeds legal requirements and Canadian consumers’ desires for a premium cannabis brand. With additional capacity, we are committed to taking PEI premium-grown, hand-crafted cannabis across Canada and, over time as legal markets develop, worldwide,” said Jewell. “As the Canadian cannabis market opens up, we are proud to offer PEI residents product that is produced by their fellow Islanders. These new facilities will offer full-time, year-round employment for Islanders.”

Both facilities will feature the latest technological advancements in horticulture and cannabis production to allow for the production of a high-quality and sustainable product for consumers. The facilities will be optimized to create comprehensive transparency and traceability from plant to final product and include security protections to maintain proper control of the facility.

The new greenhouse will provide an additional controlled environment for planting, growing and harvesting the plant as well as space for research and development where the company can continue to improve crop quality. Irrigation and environmental conditions will be monitored and controlled by specialty systems to maximize yield, and sunlight and natural ventilation will help reduce production costs while maintaining a high-quality product.

The warehouse, which was designed specifically for smooth cannabis production and processing, will provide space for trimming, drying, packaging, oil extraction, propagation of cuttings and storage of finished product. In addition, it will house FIGR’s administrative staff offices.

The greenhouse and warehouse, which are the first step in a greater expansion plan, are anticipated to be operational by spring 2019. FIGR expects to create between 100 and 200 jobs over the course of the next three years.

Alliance One International is an agricultural company that delivers value-added products and services to businesses and customers and is a trusted provider of responsibly sourced, independently verified, sustainable and traceable products, ingredients and services. AOI’s indirect stake in Canada’s Island Garden is one step in its journey to broaden its business portfolio by focusing on consumer-driven agricultural products.

About Canada’s Island Garden

Based in Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island, Canada’s Island Garden is Prince Edward Island’s only federally licensed producer of cannabis. In January 2018, the Company announced a supply agreement with the Province of Prince Edward Island to provide a high-quality supply of cannabis to Islanders. For more information, visit

Additionally, Jaguar announced today that Company management is hosting a conference call on Monday, May 21st at 4:30 p.m. Eastern Time for investors and analysts. Dial-in information for the call appears below, along with instructions for accessing the replay of the call.

Financial Highlights
(In thousands except for per share amounts and percentages) Q1 18 Q1 17 % Change
Gross product sales $ 839 $ 75 1,019
Net product revenue $ 627 $ 75 736
Collaboration income $ 177 $ 748 (76)
Net loss per share attributed to common shareholder $(6,691) $(4,715) (42)
Net loss per share $(0.05) $(0.33) 85

First-Quarter 2018 and Recent Company Highlights

The key highlight of Q1 2018 is the completion of Jaguar’s recent round of financing. As the Company announced on March 26, 2018, Jaguar has closed on separate private placements involving an aggregate of approximately $14.2 million in gross proceeds. The Company anticipates being able to sell up to an additional $2.5 million of the Company’s voting common stock (“Common Stock”) to certain investors on or before June 30, 2018. In the larger private placement of shares of the Company’s Series A Convertible Participating Preferred Stock, Sagard Capital Partners, L.P. (“Sagard”), an entity associated with Sagard Holdings ULC (“Sagard Holdings”), is the investor. The other private placement involved the issuance of Common Stock to other investors. As a result of this financing, Jaguar is now able to engage in a broad range of commercialization efforts for Mytesi®, and the Company believes its corresponding spending is commensurate with the requirements for the commercial launch of a specialty pharmaceutical product.

  • Salesforce Expansion: Throughout the fourth quarter of 2017, Napo Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (Napo), Jaguar’s wholly-owned human health subsidiary, deployed 9 sales representatives to promote Mytesi® to doctors who are frequent prescribers of antiretrovirals (ARVs), and the Company now has 17 dedicated, highly experienced Mytesi® sales representatives in addition to a national sales director, a regional business director, and a telesales representative. Napo’s salesforce is focused on targeting the right doctors – HIV specialists who are high prescribers of ARVs and gastroenterologists who see large populations of people living with HIV (PLWH), and is strategically positioned to cover the U.S. geographies with the highest potential, including the following key regions: San Francisco, Los Angeles/Palm Springs, Miami/southern Florida, northern Florida, New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Delaware, Maryland, DC, Houston, northern Texas, Chicago, St. Louis, Indianapolis, Kansas City, Alabama, Mississippi, Louisiana, North Carolina/South Carolina and Atlanta. Areas not accessible by direct sales representation are able to be reached with Napo’s telesales representative.
  • Positive Sales Trends: Shipments of Mytesi® to retailers grew 11.65 percent in Q1 2018 compared to Q4 2017; the total number of Mytesi® prescribers grew 8.43 percent from Q4 2017 to Q1 2018; and the total number of Mytesi® prescriptions increased 6.26% percent in Q1 2018 compared to Q4 2017. During this same period, redemptions of Mytesi® copay coupons increased 153.85 percent quarter over quarter.
  • Human Pipeline: The Company’s goals for 2018 include the allocation of resources in support of the filing of an Investigational New Drug (IND) application with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for Mytesi® for the indication of cancer therapy-related diarrhea (CTD), and initiating discussions with FDA regarding a possible Special Protocol Assessment (SPA). As previously announced, Napo has received orphan-drug designation from the FDA for crofelemer for the treatment of short bowel syndrome (SBS). The Company is supporting the development of a formulation of crofelemer to support an investigator-initiated trial of crofelemer at Sheikh Khalifa Medical City in Abu Dhabi for use in children with a disease known as congenital and diarrheal disorder (CDD). CDD is a group of rare chronic intestinal channel diseases that occur exclusively in early infancy and are characterized by severe lifelong diarrhea and a need for nutritional intake either parenterally or with a feeding tube. This congenital disorder is much more prevalent in the MENA region than the U.S., facilitating patient recruitment. The Company’s goals for 2018 also include additional animal work to support the orphan-drug application for CDD. An additional key pipeline goal includes the formulation and regulatory activities to support an IND application for lechlemer, Jaguar’s second-generation anti-secretory botanical drug product candidate for the indication of cholera, as well as efforts to pursue obtaining a priority review voucher from FDA for the possible cholera indication. Cholera has received designation by the FDA for a potential tropical disease priority review voucher upon approval for the first indication for a product. These vouchers have sold for $110 million to $350 million, and provide sponsors with an incentive to develop products for important lifesaving medicines that are needed primarily in resource-constrained regions of the world. Cholera is an acute diarrheal illness that kills thousands of people worldwide each year due to rapid dehydration in the first 2 -18 hours after infection. According to CNN, the number of suspected cholera cases in Yemen hit 1 million by December 21, 2017, following the detection, in April 2017, of the outbreak, which is the world’s biggest cholera outbreak in recorded history. The epidemic has already killed more than 2,000 people.

Commercial, Educational and Promotional Activities to Support Mytesi® Awareness and Sales

As a result of the recent financing referenced above, the Company believes it is now able to initiate funding of the following collection of commercial, educational, and promotional activities to support Mytesi® awareness and sales.

  • Napo Speakers Bureau: Napo has completed the training of 39 healthcare practitioners and 14 patient advocates to serve as members of the Napo Speakers Bureau. During the first quarter of 2018, the Company conducted 64 Mytesi® speaker programs.
  • Regional Advisory Board Meetings: During the first quarter of 2018, the Company conducted two Regional Advisory Board meetings on Mytesi® with healthcare professionals regarding treatment of HIV-related diarrhea, and six additional Regional Advisory Boards meetings have been conducted in April and May 2018.
  • Exhibits & Event Sponsorships: Napo plans to exhibit at, sponsor, or speak at approximately 32 national, international and regional health-related conferences or special events in 2018. Seven of these events took place in the first quarter of 2018, and, on May 20, 2018, Napo will be promoting Mytesi® at an exhibit at AIDS Walk New York in New York City’s Central Park.
  • “Under Pressure” Episode of Merce Uses Comedy to Help PLWH Talk About Diarrhea: As announced May 15, 2018, the Company is supporting production of Merce, an award-winning musical comedy web series about an HIV-positive man living in New York City. A special short episode called ”Under Pressure” has been produced by the Merce team that Napo will use in its awareness campaign. View the episode at
  • From the standpoint of education and awareness, the two recent articles listed below illustrate that Mytesi® is highly relevant to the PLWH community:
    • Experts Highlight that Immune System Activation in Aging Patients Living with HIV/AIDS Triggers Effects Such as “Leaky Gut”, Which Can Lead to Diarrhea: A recently published article in The Washington Post substantiates that, even with suppression of the HIV virus with ARVs, PLWH experience a long period of immune system activation, which, as these individuals age, triggers effects such as “leaky gut”, causing chronic inflammation which can lead to diarrhea.
    • Prevalence of Diarrhea in HIV+ Women: An article recently published in the Journal of Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome titled “Use of Nonantiretroviral Medications That May Impact Neurocognition: Patterns and Predictors in a Large, Long-Term HIV Cohort Study” looked at use of concomitant non-ART medications for comorbidities in HIV+ women. The study’s authors, who were specifically looking at non-ART medicines associated with neurocognitive adverse events, found that HIV+ women in the study were twice as likely to be on a GI medication as non-HIV+ women, providing further evidence of the continuing prevalence of diarrhea in PLWH.
  • NapoCares Patient Assistance Program: Napo is addressing the reimbursement environment through this program, which provides access to a copay savings card intended to help facilitate that patients may never have to pay more than $25 a month to fill a Mytesi® prescription.
  • Agreement with Transition Patient Services (TPS): In March 2018, as previously announced, Napo signed an agreement with pharmacy services provider TPS to operate a nationwide pilot program for Mytesi®. Core program benefits include ensuring patient out-of-pocket expenses for Mytesi® are as low as possible, and improving Mytesi® refill adherence through transmission of renewal reminders to patients.
  • Agreement with ADAP Crisis Task Force: As announced April 10, 2018, Napo signed an agreement with the ADAP Crisis Task Force. ADAPs provide life-saving HIV treatments to more than half a million low income, uninsured, and underinsured PLWH. Mytesi® was added to the Texas, Maryland, Pennsylvania and Delaware ADAPs in April 2018, and is currently on the ADAP formulary in 23 states.
  • Animal R&D and Commercial Activities: Research and development efforts related to animal products in 2018 will be limited to only the Company’s plan to support the completion of the Minor Use in a Minor Species (MUMS) new animal drug application filings with FDA for chemotherapy-induced diarrhea (CID) in dogs and exercise-induced diarrhea (EID) in dogs. Equilevia, Jaguar’s non-prescription, personalized, premium product for total gut health in equine athletes, is produced in response to individual orders from customers, which keeps commercial expenses for the product at a minimum.

  • Total Net Product Revenue: Gross sales in the first quarter of 2018 were $839 thousand, and net sales were $627 thousand, an increase of 1,019 percent and 736 percent of gross and net sales, respectively, over the first quarter of 2017. This was driven by the merger of Napo and Jaguar Animal Health, Inc., which became effective July 31, 2017, which resulted in Jaguar Health now reporting both human health and animal health segments and revenue. Human product revenue in the first quarter of 2018 included Mytesi® gross sales of $795 thousand, resulting in Mytesi® net sales of $584 thousand. Animal health sales consisted of $44 thousand gross and net sales of Neonorm. In the first quarter of 2017, animal health product revenue consisted of $45 thousand gross and net sales of Neonorm and $30 thousand in sales of botanical extract. There was no human health product revenue in the first quarter of 2017, because the merger was not effective until July 31, 2017.
  • Total Collaboration Income: Collaboration revenue stems from the animal health collaboration the Company entered into in January 2017. As previously reported, the collaboration was terminated on January 30, 2018 and Jaguar has regained global commercial rights to all companion animal indications for Canalevia, consisting of the same active pharmaceutical ingredient, crofelemer, as Mytesi®. The collaboration revenue recognized in the first quarter of 2018 represents the final recognition of the amortization of the $2.5 million milestone received upon the signing of the collaboration. The collaboration revenue in the first quarter of 2017 includes expense reimbursement, as well as milestone payment recognition.
  • Operating Expenses: The total operating expense for the quarter ended March 31, 2018 was $5.9 million. The human health segment operating expense was $3.5 million and the animal health segment operating expense was $2.4 million. The operating expense for the quarter ended March 31, 2017 was $4.7 million, which was all animal health segment operating expense. The 26 percent increase in total operating expense quarter over quarter is due to commercial activities associated with Mytesi®, which can be compared to the 736 percent increase (referenced above under “Total Net Product Revenue”) in total revenue quarter over quarter. The operating expense decrease of $2.3 million for the animal health segment for the first quarter of 2017 compared to the first quarter of 2018 is due to the Company’s resources being reallocated to the launch and commercial operations of Mytesi®.
    • The R&D expense was $758 thousand for the quarter ended March 31, 2018 compared to $1.3 million for the quarter ended March 31, 2017. The human health segment incurred expenses of $313 thousand for the quarter ended March 31, 2018 and the animal segment incurred expenses of $445 thousand in the same quarter. The total R&D expense for the quarter ended March 31, 2017 consisted of animal health clinical trials and regulatory expenses for the development of Canalevia for CID in dogs. The 40% decrease of R&D expenses quarter over quarter illustrates the transition of Jaguar Health from an R&D company into a commercial stage human health product company with a pharmaceutical pipeline of crofelemer follow-on indications and related products in place for future opportunity and growth.
    • The sales and marketing expense for the quarter ended March 31, 2018 was $1.70 million as compared to $123 thousand for the quarter ended March 31, 2017. The $1.6 million increase represents approximately a $1.0 million Mytesi® promotional spend and a $600 thousand increase in spend on the formation of a salesforce and commercial resources for the commercial operations of Mytesi®.
    • The general and administrative expense for the quarter ended March 31, 2018 totaled $3.0 million compared to $3.3 million for the quarter ended March 31, 2017, a 10% decrease quarter over quarter. The G&A spend of $1.1 million for the quarter ended March 31, 2018 consisted of building G&A support functions for the human commercial entity such as audit, legal, accounting, human resources, IT, public company expense, and facilities. Additional quarterly expenses of $1.9 million consisted of audit, legal, public company expenses and outside services to facilitate debt refinancing and the new equity investment of Sagard Capital Partners, LP and other investors, which facilitated the Company in reducing $4.7 million of debt and payables incurred during the 2017 Jaguar Health and Napo merger preparation and transaction. The general and administrative expense for the quarter ended March 31, 2017 of $3.3 million was mainly attributable to Jaguar’s due diligence and preparation for the merger with Napo.
  • Income Tax Rate: The forecasted effective tax rate for the three months ended March 31, 2018 and 2017 was zero percent, primarily as a result of the estimated tax loss for the year and the change in valuation allowance.
  • Net loss per share attributable to common shareholders: For the first quarter of 2018, net loss was $6.7 million, compared to $4.7 million in the first quarter of 2017. Net loss and comprehensive loss for Q1 2018 was $5.7 million. As a result of the Sagard Capital LC premium priced stock purchase transaction in March 2018, the Company recorded a deemed dividend charge of $995 thousand for the accretion of the discount on the Series A shares issued. The deemed dividend was a non-cash transaction and is reflected below net loss to arrive at net loss available to common stockholders on the Company’s condensed consolidated statement of operations for the three months ended March 31, 2018.
  • Earnings (Loss) per Share: In the first quarter of 2018, diluted loss per share was ($0.05); in the first quarter of 2017, diluted loss per share was ($0.33), representing an 85% improvement in 2018.
  • Cash and Cash Equivalents: As of March 31, 2018, Jaguar Health had $7.8 million of cash and cash equivalents compared to $521 thousand as of December 31, 2017. During the first quarter of 2018, the Company used $9.6 million in operating cash flow, including the reduction in debt and accounts payable resulting from the merger transaction of $4.7 million, and provided $16.7 million in investment activities.
  • Expectation of Increased Sales and Marketing Expenses in the Coming Quarters: The Company expects increased sales and marketing expenses in the coming quarters, as Napo now has a nearly complete commercial team in place. As sales volumes increase, Jaguar hopes to take advantage of the economies of scale opportunity to bring down expenses associated with the manufacturing, supply, and distribution of Mytesi®.

West Red Lake Gold Exploration Program Update – May 2018

West Red Lake Gold Exploration Program Update – May 2018

Toronto, Ontario (FSCwire) – West Red Lake Gold Mines Inc. (“West Red Lake Gold” or the “Company”) (CSE: RLG) (FSE: HYK) (OTCQB: RLGMF) announces a deep hole has been drilled on the Rowan Mine property as part of ongoing exploration work on the 3,100 hectare West Red Lake Project located in the prolific Red Lake Gold District, Northwestern Ontario, Canada.

The hole, which was located 450m east of the Rowan Mine Shaft, was drilled to the north at -74 degrees over a length of 1,272m. Due to spring breakup conditions drilling operations were stopped and further drilling is planned to commerce in the second half of 2018.

The drill core has been logged and samples have been sent out for assay.

Mr. John Kontak, President of West Red Lake Gold Mines stated, “We are very pleased to be continuing our exploration programs on the promising Red Lake property throughout 2018 and look forward to further property developments.”

The Rowan Mine Zones lie within the east-west trending regional shear structure known as the Pipestone Bay St Paul Deformation Zone (the “PBS Zone”) which is a regional geological structure that crosses the Company property and continues east to the town of Red Lake. Gold zones are hosted within a sequence of hydrothermally altered mafic volcanics with intercalatedfelsic volcanics and porphyries as well as ultramafics. Two distinct gold mineralization styles are noted: one associated with sulphide mineralization and the other with smoky quartz veins and fine grained native gold. The mineralization is hosted within a shear zone up to a hundred metres wide.

The Company property is situated on the Red Lake Archean Greenstone Belt which hosts the high grade gold mines of the Red Lake Gold District. Three former gold mines on the West Red Lake Project property are situated on the PBS Zone with the Mount Jamie Mine located in the western portion of the West Red Lake Project, the Rowan Mine in the central portion and the Red Summit Mine located in the eastern portion. The regional scale Golden Arm Structure and the sub-parallel NT Zone cross onto the West Red Lake Project from the south boundary and trend northeast for 2 km to where they merge and intersect with the PBS Zone at a location situated between the Rowan Mine and the Red Summit Mine (the “Structural Intersection”).

Twenty kilometres to the east of the Company property a similar geologically important intersection of two regional gold bearing structures occurs proximal to the world class Red Lake Mine and Campbell Mine, providing a highly favourable geological model believed to be similar to that seen at the Structural Intersection and illustrating the significant exploration potential for high grade gold zones on the Company’s West Red Lake Project.

The Company also announces that it has approved the issuance of 639,000 common shares at a deemed price of $0.125 per share for services rendered to the Company by several providers.

Technical Information

The technical information presented in this news release has been reviewed and approved by Kenneth Guy, P.Geo., a consultant to West Red Lake Gold and the Qualified Person for exploration at the West Red Lake Project, as defined by National Instrument 43-101 “Standards of Disclosure for Mineral Projects” (“NI 43-101”).

West Red Lake Gold Mines Inc. is a Toronto-based minerals exploration company focused on gold exploration and development in the prolific Red Lake Gold District of Northwest Ontario, Canada. The Red Lake Gold District is host to some of the richest gold deposits in the world and has produced 30 million ounces of gold from high grade zones. The Company has assembled a significant property position totalling 3100 hectares in west Red Lake (the “West Red Lake Project”) which contains three former gold mines. The Mount Jamie Mine and Red Summit Mine properties are 100% owned by the Company and the Rowan Mine property is held in a 60%-owned joint venture with Red Lake Gold Mines, a partnership of Goldcorp Inc. and Goldcorp Canada Ltd. The West Red Lake Project property covers a 12 kilometre strike length along the Pipestone Bay St Paul Deformation Zone and the Company plans to continue to explore the property both along strike and to depth.
