The Property is contiguous to the north, south and east with SSRM’s Seabee Gold Operation and is owned and operated by the Fisher Joint Venture (“Fisher JV”), comprised of 80% ownership by SSRM and 20% by TGC.

As reported May 6th, 2021, the Fisher JV completed 1,157m of HQ diamond drilling in 4 holes during the winter of 2021, with activity focused on defining gold mineralization at the Mac and Mac North zones. Six holes were collared, with two holes abandoned due to excessive deviation near the top of the drillholes. Due to recently implemented analytical protocols, approximately 130 samples were sent to an umpire laboratory for check analysis. Complete results from the winter program are pending and will be reported when they have been received, compiled, assessed for QAQC and interpreted.
