About Sulliden

Sulliden is a Canadian based mining company focused on the development and exploration of the Shahuindo Gold Project located in northern Peru, one of the world's most prolific gold and silver producing districts. World-class gold mines in the region include Barrick Gold's Lagunas Norte Mine, 30 km to the south, and the Yanacocha Mine operated by Newmont Mining Company, 70 km to the north.

In March 2009, the five-year legal dispute that disrupted the Shahuindo Gold Project was resolved. With the current resolution, Sulliden now holds 100 percent registered and undisputed ownership of the Shahuindo property and has secured exploration options on sixteen adjoining mining concessions.

In April 2009, the Board of Directors appointed a new Management team with the focus and ability to develop, finance and operate mining projects. With a strong strategic plan to advance the development of its Shahuindo Gold Project and potential for mineral resource expansion, Sulliden is positioned to generate superior value for its shareholders.
