Manitou Gold Inc. (“Manitou”) is a Canadian exploration company with a 148 km2 land package of highly prospective gold properties located in the historical Gold Rock District, in Northwestern Ontario. This under-explored area has a very attractive geological setting hosting 61 known gold occurrences including three past producing mines (Big Master, Laurentian and Elora). Until recently, the area has remained relatively untouched by modern-day exploration, pointing to excellent discovery potential over this large land package.
The company is currently focusing exploration efforts on three properties totalling 30 km2. These include the Kenwest, Gaffney Extension and Gaffney Patents properties, which are situated along a large scale regional structure. Recent diamond drilling on Manitou’s Kenwest property returned an impressive intersection of 53,700 g/t Au over 0.55 metres. On the Gaffney Extension property, a 75.1 metre section averaging 2.1 g/t Au was discovered during the 2011 diamond drilling season
Manitou’s President & CEO, Richard Murphy, P.Geo. has a proven track record in exploration and discovery and is leading a highly skilled technical team, ensuring efficient, cost effective and systematic exploration on the Company’s projects. The company is well financed to pursue aggressive exploration on the three priority properties.
