Manitou Gold Inc. ("Manitou") is a Canadian exploration company that has consolidated 22,500 hectares of prospective gold properties on the Michipicoten Archean Greenstone Belt, between the Island Gold Mine (operated by Alamos Gold Inc.) to the west and, to the east, the former producing Renabie Gold Mine, (owned by Barrick Gold). The lands assembled consist of 37 kilometres of strike length with at least seven under-explored large-scale deformation zones showing favorable lithology supported by more than 50 government-documented and registered gold occurrences.
Manitou Gold also owns a 148 km2 land package of highly prospective gold properties located in the historical Gold Rock District, in Northwestern Ontario (Dryden). This under-explored area has a very attractive geological setting hosting 61 known, documented and registered gold occurrences including three past producing mines (the Big Master, the Laurentian and the Elora). Until recently, the area has remained relatively untouched by modern-day exploration, pointing to excellent discovery potential over this large land package.
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 most prospective of properties.
