About the Newman Todd Property

Central has recently completed a four hole diamond drill program on the Newman Todd property. Results are expected in January 2010.

Previous exploration programs by Redstar Gold Corp. on the Newman Todd property have outlined gold values within a silicified breccia zone that can be traced for at least two kilometres. Redstar has previously announced drill intercepts of up to 61.02 g/t gold over 1.0 meter within a wider zone of 14.22 g/t gold over 5.0 metres or 60.0 metres of 1.72 g/t gold in previous drill programs. The Newman Todd property has a very similar geologic setting to the major mines in the Red Lake camp in particular Goldcorp's Campbell and Red Lake mines. Similarities include proximity to a major structure, secondary northwest-southeast trending structures, proximity to a folded ultramafic body and association with a large Fe-carbonate alteration zone.
