Sudbury, Ontario – Manitou Gold Inc. (TSXV- MTU) (“Manitou”) is pleased to provide assay results from the initial prospecting program on the Sherridon Property, which consists of eight unpatented mining claims situated within the Kenora Mining Division of Northwestern Ontario.
Manitou Gold optioned the claims based on a property visit, where a series of newly discovered visible gold showings were examined. An initial prospecting program was completed to further evaluate the potential of the project. A total of 243 grab samples were collected along an east-west oriented structure trending across the property. Numerous high grade gold assays were retuned from six different areas along a 2 km long trend. Assay sample results ranged from trace to a high of 617.0 g/t Au, and included 184.5 g/t Au, 176.5 g/t Au, and 123.0 g/t Au, with numerous other high grade samples as detailed in Table 1 below:

A prominent magnetic anomaly is coincident with the newly identified gold bearing structure and provides excellent focus for ongoing work. The anomaly can be seen in relation to high grade assays on the figure on the company’s website at the following link: www.manitougold.com/sherridon.html
There are no records of previous exploration activities on these claims. Manitou Gold has recently completed an induced polarization survey project and is in preparations for a summer drill program.
