Gold mineralization occurs in disseminated and veinlet sulphide zones
that are hosted by altered felsic to intermediate metavolcanic rocks.
The gold mineralization strikes SSW-NNE for 400m, is known to 250m
depth and is open to the north and beneath current drilling.
Newmont Option Milestone
Maudore holds 95% interest in 15 claims located in Comtois Township (the
"Newmont Claims") and Société de Développement de la Baie James holds a
5% non-contributive interest that will be converted into a 2% NSR
royalty in the event of commercial production (of which 1% can be
bought back for $250,000).
Maudore recently passed the milestone of $1 million in exploration
expenditures on the Newmont Claims, a point where Newmont Mining
Corporation of Canada Limited ("Newmont") can back-in to the deal. A
geological report has been completed and submitted to Newmont with
notification to trigger a 120-day review period where Newmont can elect
to back-in to a 51% interest in the Newmont Claims by spending $750,000
in exploration expenditures within one year or remain with its 1.45%
