As a result of the Shunsby Property acquisition, Hage now owns 4 million shares of Black Widow representing approximately 16.5% of the issued shares, which when combined with shares held personally by Messrs.

As per a press release dated October 15, 2013, the Company received a National Instrument 43-101 report on this property last September, that describes the Property as being located approximately 145 kilometers southwest of Timmins, Ontario in Cunningham Township. The report entitled "Technical Report on the Shunsby Base Metal Property, Cunningham Township, Ontario, for Black Widow Resources Inc." by Paul Sobie, P.Geo. of MPH Consulting Ltd., of Toronto Ontario dated September 30, 2013, hereinafter referred to as the "Shunsby Report", was filed on http://www.sedar.ca and is also available on the Company's website www.blackwidowresources.com.
Details of the Shunsby Property, are outlined in detail in the technical report mentioned above. In summary, the Property has seen much exploration work covering the period 1904 to as recent as 1994, over 90 years of exploration records have been accessed and reviewed. These records include 214 diamond drill holes totaling in excess of 23 kilometers of drilling all of which was recently digitized and entered into a property wide database. In the Shunsby Report, the historical drilling was summarized in tables, representing periods of exploration by various operators. It is the intent of Black Widow to twin some of these holes to determine their relevance in incorporating results into an eventual resource evaluation. To this effect, a short diamond drilling program is proposed to commence immediately, consisting of 4 or 5 holes totaling 750 meters. The initial diamond drilling contract has been awarded to Chenier Drilling of Sudbury, Ontario. A drill and all necessary support equipment has been mobilized to the Property prior to the spring "half load" restrictions being applied to the industrial road by the local forestry company that also provides access to the forest resources and communities in the region.
