- 1100 hectare 100%-owned Property located 18 km south of Kirkland Lake Gold’s Macassa Mine Complex.
- Abundant “Kirkland Lake-style” vertical and flat high-grade gold-telluride veins in syenite intrusive stocks and volcanics.
- The Miller Gold Property is situated on a major 1st order fault structure (Catharine Fault) off the Kirkland /Cadillac-Larder Breaks.
- Property hosts similar age, nature and style of gold mineralization as the nearby Macassa South Mine Complex.
- Demonstrable potential for a large, intrusive-hosted bulk-tonnage system similar to Sigma / Lamaque carrying significant gold mineralization.
- Potential for significant near surface and deeper high-grade gold resources in multiple structurally controlled zones (Vein #1, Allied, Planet and D zone) amenable to high-grade underground mining.
- Between 1987-88 Nortek Exploration completed 37 diamond drill holes and estimated a grade and tonnage for the Miller- Independence deposit at 0.73Mt at 11.5 g/t Au (270,000 oz Au)*
- From 2012-2015 Northstar Gold Corp completed surface exploration including ground magnetics, 3D IP surveying and 5,846 meters (27 holes) of diamond drilling Northstar (2014) / (Oban Mining Corporation – 2015).
- Northstar drill results included multiple high-grade and broad, low grade intersections with abundant visible gold.
- In 2016 Northstar mined a 932 tonne bulk sample from the historic No. 1 Vein that averaged 5.1 g/t gold.
- Recently upgraded road access to within 100m of main mineralized zones.
- Recently received NI 43-101 Technical Report recommending 2-Phase, $2.2M exploration program scheduled to commence Q2 – 2019.

*A Qualified Person has not done sufficient work to classify these historical estimates as current mineral resources and the Company is not treating these historical estimates as current mineral resources. These historical estimates cannot be fully verified. These values cannot and should not be relied upon, are only referred to herein as an indication of previously defined gold mineralization. In order to verify these estimates and to upgrade to NI 43-101 compliant categories, the historical areas would need to be re-drilled with updated sampling procedures put in place.
Comparison between Miller and Kirkland Lake South Mine Complex (SMC)
- Mineralization at SMC is predominately hosted in calaverite, a gold telluride; same major gold mineral at Miller.
- Age dating and other indications has found the mineralization at Miller to be multi-stage, long-lived and associated with the Temiskaming magmatic event (2680 to 2660 Ma) contemporaneously with the age of gold deposits along the Kirkland Lake Main Break.**
- Catharine Fault Zone (Miller Property) and the Larder Break (Kirkland Lake) are both “First Order Structures”, potentially sharing a gold enriched magmatic hydrothermal reservoir at depth.
- Barry-Hollinger Shear/D-Zone (Miller Property) and the Main/’04 Breaks (Kirkland Lake) are geometrically identical, and may coincide with the same deformation event.
