``The Covid19 restrictions caused delays in our program, however the restrictions have now been lifted and operations are gradually returning to normal with social distancing and hygienic measures.

Rocmec 1 project

The Rocmec 1 project is located in the Dasserat Township, Province of Quebec on the shores of the Labyrinthe Lake. It is approximately 35 kilometres west of the town of Rouyn-Noranda and is easily accessible from Route 117 and the frontier gravel road separating Quebec and Ontario and a secondary gravel road to the site. The property was acquired in October 2005, dewatering and rehabilitation of the mine commenced in January 2006. To date, Nippon Dragon has invested approximately $33,000,000 in rehabilitating the property, surface and underground infrastructure, diamond drilling, equipment and drifting. The property includes a 100m deep two compartment shaft, an 844 metre decline allowing access to five levels (50, 70, 90,110 and 130 metres). On these levels a total of 1700 metres (drifts and cross-cut drifts) were driven. The Rocmec 1 mineralized bodies are well defined by diamond drill holes. The 2010 NI 43-101 report by SGS using a cut-off grade of 3 g/t Au reports a Measured and Indicated mineral resources of 570,300 tonnes grading 6.52 g/t (119 500 oz.) and 1,512,400 tonnes Inferred at 7.4 g/t Au (359 600 oz.).
