REN Gold Property, Northwest Territories

Novus Gold's flag ship project, the REN property in the Northwest Territories, consists of approximately 10,000 hectares located approximately 90 kilometres southwest of the formerly producing Lupin gold mine owned by China Minmetals. The REN property was drilled by Texas Gulf and Cominco/Westview in the 1970's and 1980's, discovering high grade iron hosted gold mineralization similar to the Lupin mine. Reinterpretation of previous work and 2009 surface sampling and drill results outlined a wide zone of lower grade gold mineralisation. In late 2009 Novus completed a nine-hole drill program returning gold assay values ranging between 2 to 3 g/t in intersections ranging from 10.61 to 32.76 metres wide. High-grade gold up to 22.40 g/t was also encountered. A concurrent surface sampling program traced the iron formation and gold mineralization for over 7 kilometres. Gold values up to 205.00 g/t were detected. In March 2010 Novus received two of the first assay results from the REN property historic drilling re-sampling program. Hole COM-89-35 sampled 2.83g/t Au over 49.98 metres including 19.05 metres of 5.07 g/t Au. Assay results of 17.97 metres grading 2.22 g/t gold at the Grizz occurrence suggest that it may be an extension of the Main Zone, located approximately 1.7 kilometres to the south.

A drilling and surface sampling program is in progress.

La Paciencia Property, Dominican Republic

The La Paciencia property (8,600 hectares) is underlain by the same geology as the Pueblo Viejo gold deposit (Barrick/Goldcorp) located 10 kilometres to the east. The only recorded work on the property is minor stream sediment sampling with limited prospecting. There has been no previous prospecting on the hill tops, where silicified mineralization such as at Pueblo Viejo, is expected to be found.

La Yagua Property, Dominican Republic

The La Yagua Property (9,900 hectares) is located 19 kilometres along strike from Globestar's producing Cerro de Maimon mine. A 2009 surface exploration program, on the Novus property, led to the discovery of a 0.6 mile long gold and copper mineralized zone. Grab samples of oxidized material grade up to 13 grams gold per ton, 41 grams silver per ton and 21.33% copper. More than 50% of the samples collected graded over 1% copper.
