GOODFISH-KIRANA PROPERTY OVERVIEW
Warrior Gold has assembled a large contiguous land package (4,122ha) in the Kirkland Lake Mining Camp, five kilometres north of the town of Kirkland Lake. The property is hosted in the Abitibi Greenstone Belt, one of the best-endowed greenstone belts in the world, with +200 million ounces of gold produced to date, of which +40 million ounces have been produced in the Kirkland Lake Mining Camp.
The 100%-owned Goodfish-Kirana property contains three major structural trends, numerous high-grade gold showings, and significant drill intercepts, as well as 18 historical pits and shafts. Due to fragmented previous ownership, the property has never been subjected to systematic investigation using modern exploration methods.

HISTORICAL WORK ON THE PROPERTY
Exploration and mining work dates back to the early 1900s when high-grade gold was first discovered on the Goodfish-Kirana Property by hand digging exploration pits and shafts. The Kirana Kirkland Mine, last worked in the late 1930s, included grades of between 30 g/t and 145 g/t gold. The Goodfish patents are host to two mine shafts (1930s) that were hand dug to 300 and 600 ft respectively with a total of 1000 ft of lateral workings. The Northern Miner reported in 1938 that a half rail car of ore grading 1.25 oz/ton was mined from the Goodfish underground working and taken to Cobalt for processing.
Exploration was conducted intermittently by a variety of companies over localized parts of the property from the 1930s until 2008. This included prospecting, ground geophysics (magnetics, Induced Polarization, and VLF/EM), airborne geophysical surveys, and on the order of 30 km of diamond drilling. Significant historical drill intersections include 12.65 m @ 16.97 g/t Au in hole GF90-04; 0.61 m @ 234 g/t Au in hole ML96-3; and 0.61 m @ 99.42 g/t Au in 1941 hole #2.
WARRIOR GOLD EXPLORATION
After consolidating the large land package (4,122ha) and compiling previous work, the Company conducted a series of geophysical surveys (LiDAR, airborne magnetic/VLF EM, ground IP and ground magnetics) to highlight structural corridors in areas of historical mineralization. Targeting work identified more than 19 prospective areas. Exploration is currently focused on the Goodfish patents, targeting the “A” Zone proximal to the Goodfish #1 shaft.
