Corporate Profile

Manitou Gold Inc. (“Manitou”) is a Canadian exploration company with a 148 km2 land package of highly prospective gold properties located in the historical Gold Rock District, in Northwestern Ontario (Dryden area).  This under-explored area has a very attractive geological setting hosting 61 known gold occurrences including three past producing mines (Big Master, Laurentian and Elora).  Until recently, the area has remained relatively untouched by modern-day exploration, pointing to excellent discovery potential over this large land package.

Manitou Gold, together with its consulting engineers and mining contractor, has prepared a preliminary plan for a bulk sample of the high-grade zone at the Kenwest property, currently scheduled for the fall of 2017.

The high grade zone on the Big Master #2 structure was first discovered in 2011 when the Company intersected 53,700 g/t gold over 0.55 meters at a vertical depth from surface of only 35 meters in drill hole KW-11-26 (see Company’s press release dated February 28, 2011). This intersection was successfully followed up by 17 additional holes drilled up to 20 meters both above and below the discovery hole over a 25 meter section of strike. 

The current plan for collecting the bulk sample at Kenwest involves developing a 150 metre-long ramp down along the Big Master #2 shear structure to access the area directly under the high grade zone. Bulk sampling of the high-grade zone will proceed upward through the zone using the cut and fill mining method to maximize grade recovery. The Company is presently completing the detailed mining and closure plans required as part of bulk sample program permitting. Consultations with relevant Crown Ministries and local stakeholders have begun and will continue until a permit is issued.

Manitou’s CEO, Richard Murphy, P.Geo. has a proven track record in exploration and discovery and is leading a highly skilled technical team, ensuring efficient, cost effective and systematic exploration on the Company’s projects.  The company is well financed to pursue aggressive exploration on the three priority properties.
