Meridian Gold Project Overview

Manson Creek has consolidated five historic past producing gold - silver mines on the road accessible 675 hectare claim block.

In 2008, the Property was the focus of a reconnaissance drill program that followed up on exceptional gold mineralization mapped on surface. Drilling intersected significant gold values within large regional structures that host the past producing mines. During the 2008 program, over 600 meters (m) of strike length bracketing the Eva Mine was successfully tested.

To date, Manson Creek has outlined an extensive gold mineralized system over an area of 1,100 m by 860 m that remains open along strike and to depth. Significant gold values in drill core and outcrop, ranging from 2 g/t to 194 g/t gold, occur within this system. Additional mineralized cross cutting structures are also present and remain largely untested.

The 2008 drilling program successfully extended known mineralization along strike and to depth of the past producers. Proposed 2009 work will include underground mapping and sampling of historical workings and the integration of this data with the 2008 drilling data set.
