and a conventional royalty of 2.5% of which 1.5% can be purchased at any time by the Company from the BVAR Group for $1,000,000 per 1%.

The Bridal Veil (gold-copper-silver) Property located 10 kilometers east of Gander immediately adjacent to the Trans-Canada Highway and is situated between the Newfound Gold Corp. “Queensway” Property (15 kilometers to the west) and the StarTrack Gold Property near Benton, Newfoundland. The Bridal Veil Property comprises of 126 claims (3,150 hectares) and lies within the Gander Zone and is underlain by sedimentary rocks of the Gander Group. Bridal Veil is an epigenetic, structurally controlled polymetallic target which has also been noted to have the potential to host gold mineralization.

Grab samples from mineralized zones have returned grades of up to 8.9% copper, 5.6% lead, 8.6 oz/t silver and 750 ppb gold and another grab containing 3.82 g/t gold. Other grab samples from the mineralized zones include:

Bridal Veil:                  1.33% copper, 5.2% lead, 1.0 oz/t silver
Abbott’s Ridge:                        8.5% copper, 1.0% lead and 0.6 oz/t silver
Hidden outcrop            :           0.29% copper, 3.2% lead and 5.4 oz/t silver
Growler:                      0.21% copper, 0.85% lead, and 1.13 oz/t silver
Meggan’s Rise:                        0.75% copper, 8.4% lead and 7.8 oz/t silver

Bridal Veil has also been subjected to geophysical investigations including an Induced Polarization Survey and a Magnetometer Survey which have served to identify anomalous areas that merit follow up exploration.

Mr. John Bossio, Chairman of the Company noted: “We are very pleased to have entered into this Agreement which is in close proximity to the recent gold discoveries by Newfound Gold Corp. in a highly accessible area and close to great infrastructure. Although Silver Hart in Yukon will remain our cornerstone project, Bridal Veil offers us an opportunity to diversify our holdings, expand our exploration seasonality, and offers us exposure to a gold-silver-copper target in Newfoundland Labrador – a jurisdiction that is highly supportive of mineral exploration and development. We thank BVAR Group for providing us this opportunity under very reasonable terms and we look forward to working closely with them to uncover further exploration potential at Bridal Veil.”

Kevin Brewer, P. Geo and President and CEO of the Company noted: “The Gander Lake Subzone in Newfoundland and Labrador has caught the attention of investors and explorers. We are excited about having acquired an opportunity to be a part of this play. During the winter months we will complete a property compilation and identify an exploration strategy for Bridal Veil that we expect to initiate in the spring of 2021.”

This option agreement is subject to TSX Exchange approval.
