About the Shebandowan Gold Project

The SGP is located 90 km west of Thunder Bay, north-western Ontario, in the Rainy River – Atikokan – Shebandowan emerging gold province where Osisko Mining Corporation is currently developing the 6.7 M oz Au Hammond Reef gold deposit 100 km to the West of the Company's project. The SGP is serviced by a railroad line, a high tension power line and the Trans-Canada highway all providing excellent infrastructure to the project.

Following completion of the recent transaction with Lake Shore Gold Corp. for the acquisition of the Band Ore property, Golden Share controls 25 km of strike length along the northern part of the Shebandowan belt highlighted by two advanced gold targets :

  • Pistol Lake JF's West zone : 150,699 oz Au Inferred Resource (2,857,200 MT @ 1.64 g/t Au at 1.00 g/t Au cut off / NI 43-101 compliant).
  • Band Ore deposit : 251,271 oz Au in historical resources within two principal zones (706,000 tonnes at a grade of 6.86 g/t Au** in the Main Zone and 616,000 tonnes at a grade of 4.83 g/t Au** in the # 4 zone).

The Pistol Lake - Band Ore trend ("PLBO") represents a 10 km segment of the belt on which Golden Share is executing advanced work with a view to increase the current known resources.
