The company completed a diamond drilling program at the Lac Arsenault property in 2021. The drilling program consisted of eleven holes totaling 1951.9 metres with 366 core samples (not including blank, standards and duplicate) analyzed at ALS laboratory (Val d’Or, Québec). All samples were assayed for gold by fire assay (FA ICP-AES finish), silver by aqua regia digestion and multi-elements (ICP-AES). Three drill holes LA-21-03, LA-21-02 and LA-21-08 intersected high-grade mineralization and confirm the extension at depth of the mineralized structures (Table 1).

1 Holes were drilled at various angles and the true width are not known at this time.

During the site visit Mr. Duplessis, Eng., took six surface samples (channels and grab samples, Figure 2). The table (Table 2) below show the assays results from these samples. Assay results for the verification samples confirmed the presence of gold showing with a maximum value of 17.43 g/t Au at Baker vein and a minimum value of 6.04 g/t Au at L4W.
