Based in Montreal, SDNL provides investor relations services to junior exploration companies and emerging enterprises.

SDNL has neither a direct, nor an indirect interest in the securities of the Company or of the Subsidiaries, nor any right or intent to acquire such an interest.

The appointment of SDNL as an investor relations consultant is subject to the approval of the TSX Venture Exchange.

About Golden Valley Mines Ltd.: The Company typically tests initial grassroots targets while owning a 100% interest therein and then seeks partners to continue exploration funding. This allows the Company to carry on its generative programs and systematic exploration efforts at other majority-owned grassroots projects. The Company (together with its various subsidiaries) holds majority property interests in projects in Canada (Saskatchewan, Ontario and Québec) and in the Republic of Sierra Leone in West Africa.
