Warrior Gold has assembled a large land package (~21,450 ha) near the town of Kirkland Lake.
The properties are hosted in the Abitibi Greenstone Belt, one of the most metal-endowed greenstone belts in the world, with +200 million ounces of gold produced to date, of which +47 million ounces have been produced in the Kirkland Lake gold camp.
Warrior Gold’s properties include the 100%-owned Goodfish-Kirana property (4,338 ha); the Arnold property (1,225 ha) and the recently optioned KL West (KLW) (~13,414 ha), KL Central (KLC) (2,364 ha) and KL East (KLE) (129 ha).
The properties host structural trends, numerous gold and high-grade gold showings, as well as reported copper, silver and kimberlite occurrences. Previous fragmented ownership of the land packages has meant that the ground has never been subjected to systematic investigation using modern exploration methods.
The Goodfish-Kirana property is the company’s flagship property and has been the focus of our exploration efforts over the last several years. The property hosts significant drill intercepts, major mineralized structures, as well as 18 historical pits and shafts.

ABITIBI GREENSTONE BELT
Warrior Gold's properties are hosted in the Abitibi Greenstone Belt, one of the most metal endowed greenstone belts in the world with +200 million ounces of gold produced to date. Approximately +47 million ounces have been produced in the Kirkland Lake gold camp.
KIRKLAND LAKE, ONTARIO, CANADA
The company’s properties are comprised of a combination of 29 patented claims and 444 staked claims encompassing 20,769 ha located within the Kirkland Lake gold camp. The properties are located north of the town of Kirkland Lake, 100 km east-southeast of Timmins, and directly adjacent to Kirkland Lake Gold, Agnico Eagle, and New Found Gold properties.
Both Kirkland Lake and Timmins have a long history of exploration and mining in the region and are home to generations of skilled workforces that specialize in this industry. The Kirkland Lake gold camp is a prolific gold camp that hosts many high-grade deposits which occur both near-surface and at depth. Older and new deposits are continuously being discovered and redefined with a combination of fieldwork and new exploration technologies.
Access to skilled workforce;
10-minute drive from downtown Kirkland Lake;
Year-round access via all-weather gravel roads and a series of bush roads;
Water is abundant in the region;

Exploration and mining work dates back to the early 1900s when high-grade gold was first discovered on the Goodfish-Kirana property by trenching efforts and exploration 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 developed 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 approximately 30,000 m 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 Goodfish-Kirana property land package (4,316 ha) 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 and the “C” Zone. Since 2018, Warrior Gold has drilled 13,731 m (58 diamond drill holes) in four drilling campaigns and intersected anomalous or high-grade gold in nearly 87% of the holes drilled.
