About Darnley Bay Resources Limited

The Company was formed in 1993 to explore and develop an area of geophysical significance in the Northwest Territories of Canada. Initial base metal exploration fortuitously resulted in the discovery of diamonds, indicating that the area is host to both metallic and non-metallic mineral deposit interests. The Company's objectives are to secure and maintain successful financing partnerships to continue exploration for both base metals and diamonds that will result in the development of a profitable mining venture.
