  5. 5. Geologic Setting  Archean age Shebandowan Greenstone Belt within the Wawa Subprovince, host to past and present world class precious and base metal deposits  Gold deposits in northeast-striking shear zones on the property  Two significant gold deposits and one copper-gold past producer are located on the property, from NE to SW: the East Coldstream deposit, the North Coldstream Mine, and the Span Lake deposit.
  6. 6. Regional Trend
  7. 7. 2009 Exploration Program  Geological mapping, trenching, rock sampling  Generate drill targets  Span Lake: Confirmed Inco 1980’s work, delineate controls on gold mineralization –confirmed extent of Moss Lake deposit on Foundation property - generated additional drill targets  Burchell West: investigated historic gold occurrences  Broadhurst Peninsula: Mapping and rock sampling in an area with grab samples up to 2.06 g/t Au from Alto Ventures 2008 work  Skimpole Lake: Confirmed historic gold anomalies  East Coldstream: Confirmed widespread mineralization at the deposit  Goldie Zone: Confirmed historic gold occurrences - 2.06 to 5.48 g/t Au  Iris Zone: IP conductivity anomalies coincident with anomalous gold results from 2007 drilling-confirmed gold in outcrops
  8. 8. Span Lake Area  Adjacent to Moss Lake gold deposit (51 million tonnes – 1.5 million ounces gold, NI43-101 compliant inferred resource)  Drill results include:  3.01 g/t Au over 7.45 m  3.67 g/t Au over 4.63m  Nine zones of anomalous gold identified
  9. 9. Channel Sample Au g/t Length (m) A Zone S-A-03 0.68 8.76 includes 1.71 2.85 S-A-05 1.29 2.35 S-A-06 0.53 10.2 includes 1.1 4.0 S-A-07 1.05 3.0 S-A-14 2.36 2.0 S-A-18 31.8 0.75 S-A-20 2.51 3.16 S-A-26 1.23 2.0 B Zone S-B-05 1.7 2.22
  10. 10. Span Lake Zone Channel Samples in Outcrop
  11. 11. East Coldstream Gold Deposit  5.1 million tonnes at 1.4 g/t (234,000 ounces gold) calculated by Noranda in 1990 for the North, Main and East zones (Historical resource not compliant with NI 43-101 standards)  Au mineralization starts on surface - historic resource estimate was based on relatively shallow drilling  The historical resource does not include the Sanders Zone, where 2006 drill results include 1.1 g/t Au over 23m  Mineralization plunges easterly - all zones open at depth  Winter 2010 drilling has demonstrated greater widths at depth in the deposit, potentially providing significant addition to the historic resource
  12. 12. East Coldstream – Winter 2010 Drill Results Drill Hole From To Width Gold (metres) (metres) (metres) (grams /tonne) C-10-14 190.45 237.70 47.25 1.30 Including: 192.30 198.20 5.90 3.01 216.95 218.95 2.00 6.15 227.30 229.75 2.45 9.62 228.55 229.75 1.20 11.80 C-10-15 169.45 196.73 27.28 4.88 Including: 193.73 196.73 3.0 13.55
  13. 13. East Coldstream – Winter 2010 Drilling
  14. 14. East Coldstream Long Sections East Zone Open at depth, with intersections increasing in width with depth Intersections from drilling to date are less than 200m below surface Sanders Zone Very little drilling to date, a potential expansion of the deposit along strike to the east and to depth
  15. 15. Goldie Zone Trench 6 Area 31 g/t sample site
  16. 16. Iris Zone  Recently acquired claims expand the property north of the East Coldstream Gold Deposit  2007 drilling targeted IP conductivity anomalies running sub-parallel to IP anomalies coincident with the East Coldstream Gold Deposit  Drilling encountered alteration and shearing similar to that observed at East Coldstream  2007 drill results include 1.27 g/t Au over 5m, 1.19 g/t Au over 4 m, and 1.28 g/t Au over 5.2m
