Although no analytical results are available at this time, preliminary field observations by R.

Kim Tyler, President and CEO; Terrence Byberg, Executive Vice President; Margaret Kent, Chairman; Michael Page, VP Exploration; and R.M. (Mike) Robb.
The Company is pleased to announce a non-brokered private placement (the “Private Placement”) offering of $495,125. The Private Placement will include both units (the “Units”) of the Company, and common shares offered on a flow-through basis (the “Flow-Through Shares”).

The Company has received commitments of $15,125 for Units and $480,000 for Flow-Through Shares.
The proceeds of the Private Placement will be used to fund the summer 2018 exploration program at the Golden Culvert property and for other payments directly related to the property.

A director and officer of the Company has subscribed for Units under the Private Placement. Completion of the Offering remains subject to acceptance by the TSX Venture Exchange.
