Background & Plans

The Cunningham property lies along a splay of the Cadillac-Larder Lake Break, approximately 15 km from the 4.1 million ounce Young Davidson Gold Mine, developed by Northgate Minerals (acquired by AuRico Gold in October 2011 for $1.46B). The property has seen several past operators, including Panmore who drilled 10.15 g/t gold over 6.7 meters in 1989. West Kirkland twinned a Panmore hole, along the Kincaid fault structure in late 2010, and intercepted 19.79 g/t gold over 7.9 meters, within a broader mineralized intersection of 7.61 g/t gold over 23 meters in hole KC1008. Both intercepts occur within 100 meters of the surface.

By October 2011, West Kirkland had completed approximately 15,000 meters of drilling on its Kirkland Lake properties spanning from the Macassa Mine, west to the Young-Davidson mine, and identified two panels of mineralization on its Cunningham/Sutton properties. A new discovery was intercepted at Cunningham along the Kincaid fault structure with drill results returning 5.00 meters grading 16.15g/t Au from a depth of 85.7 meters including 2.2 meters grading 34.49 g/t Au in hole KC1163. The same structure intersected in KC1164 returned 1.10 meters grading 6.42g/t Au from a depth of 92 meters. The results from KC1163 have been followed up 200 meters along strike and down dip on the Kincaid fault structure. The Company has modeled current and historic drilling and feels it has a three-dimensional target for further drilling.
