Location Map: New Snow Lake Claims

The Reed Lake volcanogenic massive sulphide mineralized zone is overlain by distinctive layers of magnetite and chert. The rocks that underlie and contain the sulphide are moderately to intensely altered felsic volcanic rocks. The Reed Lake mineralization is typical of other VMS deposits including those in the prolific Snow Lake camp and the nearby Spruce Point mine, formerly operated by HudBay Minerals.

Conrad Swanson, President, stated: "This is a major step forward for International Samuel. Making an acquisition of this significant acreage contiguous to a potential new discovery is extremely positive for the Company's management and shareholders. The plan is to initiate a full-scale program as soon as possible. When you couple this new acquisition with our ongoing activities on International Samuels diamond prospects, it is clearly an exciting period of corporate growth for Samuel in the short and long term."
