About the Duncan Lake Property

The Duncan Lake Iron Ore Property ("DLIOP") is located approximately 570 km north of Mattagami, Québec, and can be easily accessed via paved road (Highway 109), connecting Mattagami to Radisson. Road distance from Montreal to DLIOP is estimated to be 1,350 km. The property is located 50 km south of Radisson and 10 km south of the LG2 regional airport.

The property is subdivided into six (6) separate mineralized zones (1 to 6) proximal to Highway 109. The claim blocks 1, 2, and 5 are located southwest of the highway and claim blocks 3, 4 and 6 to the northeast. The property has recently been expanded to 528 exploration claims covering 25,448.8 hectares.

The DLIOP is subject to a joint venture agreement between Century, which holds a 51% interest, and Augyva, which holds a 49% interest under an option and joint venture agreement dated May 20, 2008.

On November 11, 2010, Century completed its funding of $6,000,000 to earn an initial 51% interest in the DLIOP in accordance with the JV Agreement. Pursuant to the JV Agreement, and after earning the initial 51% interest, Century will have the option to increase its interest in the property to 65% by expending a further $14 million during the following 4 years thereafter.
