Mooseland Gold Property, Nova Scotia

NSGold’s core asset is the 100% owned Mooseland Gold Property located in Halifax County, Nova Scotia. The Mooseland gold deposit occurs within a typical Meguma structure with steeply dipping limbs and is located 13 kilometers by road from the recently commissioned Moose River consolidated gold mine operated by Atlantic Gold Corporation (TSXV:AGB). The Moose River mine comprises a 2 million tonne per annum CIL processing plant and open pit mine. Atlantic Gold has adopted an aggressive consolidation strategy targeting the acquisition of surrounding gold properties. NSGold’s Mooseland Gold Property is also located less than 30 kilometers from the past producing Tangier Gold Mine and approximately 65 kilometers from the Dufferin Gold Mine. These two properties, along with the Forest Hill gold property, are held by Resource Capital Gold (TSXV:RCG). Resource Capital Gold commenced operations at the Dufferin Mine during 2017 with the processing of stockpiled materials and announced preparations for the resumption of trial mining. Resource Capital Gold announced initial gold pour at the Dufferin Mine in March 2017.

Total inferred mineral resources for the Mooseland Property, as reported in the June 2012 NI 43-101 Technical Report prepared by MineTech International Inc. of Halifax, Nova Scotia, are estimated at 454,000 ounces of gold using a cut-off grade of 2.6 grams per tonne (see NSGold news release dated June 5, 2012).
