Massive Chromite Domain 15% Cutoff, with internal waste
The McFaulds Project is located in the James Bay Lowlands, the area of one of Canada’s newest exploration camps, and an exciting area of new, multi -metal discoveries by several exploration companies. The project encompasses 141 staked claims (~32,000 hectares) and has had over 90 holes drilled between 2003 and the end of 2009. Highlights include discovery of 10 individual VMS occurrences, of which 2 have undergone detail drilling with resource estimates (NI 43-101 technical report filed on SEDAR). The best drill intersection encountered 18.8m averaging 8.02% copper (Hole McF-04-57) in McFaulds #3 occurrence. UC Resources Inc has an Option to earn up to 55% ownership in the project by spending $4.5 million on the project over 4 years (UC has earned 40% thus far by incurring in excess of $3.25 million prior to March 2010).
<ul><li>Kyle Kimberlite Project – Spider discovered diamondiferous 5 kimberlites NE of the “Ring of Fire” area in the mid-1990’s. Filed NI 43-101 report in 2008 (Spider optioned project to Renforth, Spider only contributes after Renforth earns up to 55% , Spider maintains 30% interest) Discussions underway with Renforth to revisit this project agreement and make it a priority project for Spider during the last half of 2010. </li></ul><ul><li>Diagnos Initiative Project – a conceptual project within the Ring of Fire, using statistical analysis of proprietary geophysical datasets to generate targets similar to other known successfully tested targets. Six properties were acquired, airborne surveys completed resulting in one priority drill target (50:50 partnership with KWG, Spider is operator as per May 2006 JV agreement) </li></ul><ul><li>Wawa Diamond Project – Spider discovered several diamond occurrences along the Trans Canada Highway, near Wawa, in 1996. Project advanced to drill phase in 2008, main “Lalibert 156” occurrence tested, all samples yielded diamonds, more work planned. (50:50 partnership KWG can elect to contribute or dilute once Spider has earned 66.66% interest, Spider is operator of project per May 2006 JV agreement) </li></ul><ul><li>MacFadyen Diamond Project – a diamond exploration project near the Victor Diamond Mine, 100 tonne bulk test planned by Debuts Diamond (KWG controls Debuts, Spider to contribute to maintain 33.33%, KWG is operator per May 2006 JV agreement). Preliminary discussions underway with KWG on revisiting this agreement and working it into the Kyle project as noted above. </li></ul>
Big Daddy Chrome Project KWG as Operator to provide work program for next phase of option earn-in with respect to Freewest (Cliffs). Minimum program expected to be in order of $4 - 5 million, of which Spider must expend $2 – 2.5 million prior to end of March 2011 , in order to earn additional 1.5%, bringing Spider’s interest level to 28%, however KWG could recommend a much larger pre-feasibility program. Over-expenditure gets applied to next earn-in. ~$9 million program left to be expended by March 31, 2012 for Spider and KWG to fully vest with 30% each in Big Daddy. Spider contributes 50% of all costs in agreement with KWG to earn up to 60% aggregate interest from Freewest (Cliffs). Spider has ~$4 million in bank as of end of Q1 2010.
McFaulds Project UC to continue exploration to achieve their 55% earn-in, Spider to review UC results as they happen, work with UC once their earn-in is achieved, if done before year end ($??) Kyle Project Spider to renegotiate agreement with Renforth to move project along quicker ($??). Wawa Project review results of 2009 plan next drill phase ($150K) . Diagnos Initiative Project KWG and Spider contemplating drilling one hole to test target immediately east of ROF, estimate at $150,000 ($75K each) New Projects Spider is always on the lookout for new exciting projects, has identified a few new projects, negotiating terms for acquisition at present ($500K) .
Spider Resources Inc, founded in 1992 as a diamond exploration resource company. It is now 2010. Spider has matured over the past 18 years to become a very successful exploration company, with a very proud history of exploration success, not only in diamonds but in base and precious metals, also in chromite. Our success speaks for itself. We are the envy of many other explorers in the junior resource sector. What was once an exciting exploration project, has just become an exciting pre-development project. Big Daddy is a world class chromite deposit. “ Spider is the spark that set off the Ring of Fire, this spark continues to burn bright. Spider is changing, the spark is now a flame, watch us change, but don’t watch from a distance!”
