About North Country Gold Corp.
North Country Gold Corp. controls one of the largest under explored greenstone belts within Canada, and has numerous drill ready high grade gold targets, in addition to those at Three Bluffs. The gold-rich Committee Bay Greenstone Belt is located approximately 300 kilometers north of Baker Lake within Nunavut Territory, Canada. North Country Gold Corp. is currently the 100% beneficial owner of the mineral rights to approximately 557,323 acres (225,569 hectares) of land comprising 216 active mineral claims and 14 mineral leases.
The Three Bluffs Gold Project currently hosts an indicated resource of 508,000 ounces (2,700,000 tones at 5.85 g/t Au) and an additional inferred resource of 244,000 ounces (1,270,000 tones at 5.98 g/t Au) at the Three Bluffs Deposit which remains open to the west and to depth. The deposit occurs at the eastern end of a package of auriferous iron formation bearing supracrustral rocks (Walker Lake Trend) that has been traced at least five kilometers west which the 2010 drilling indicates may be continuously mineralized. North Country Gold Corp. believes that significant potential exists along the Walker Lake trend and has developed a strategy to indentify additional near surface open-pittable gold resources along the strike length of the trend, which will incrementally add to the existing high grade resource inventory underpinned by Three Bluffs Deposit.
