About PC Gold

PC Gold is a focused gold junior owning 100% of the past-producing Pickle Crow Gold Mine Property in northwest Ontario. The Property lies within the prolific Uchi Subprovince which also hosts the rich gold mines of Red Lake. Pickle Crow was a long life (31 years, 1935-1966), high-grade (16.14 g/t / 0.47 oz/T), profitable operation (28 years). During its lifetime, it produced a total of 1.45 million Troy ounces of gold, predominantly from quartz-carbonate veins. The mine closed in 1966 due to increasing costs as operations extended to deeper levels and revenues declined in real dollar terms in a fixed gold price environment ($35/oz). Pickle Crow closed with all productive high-grade veins open at depth and largely untouched zones of gold in iron formation within or in close proximity to the workings. Additionally, since the mine shut down, historical exploration programs have produced several non NI 43-101 compliant resource estimates for the Property, detailed in Chapter 5.4 of the Pickle Crow Property NI 43-101 Technical Report. Consequently, there is believed to be strong potential for expanding known gold zones, and making new discoveries. The Pickle Crow Gold Mine Property has excellent access and exploration infrastructure, including an on-site mill.
