The TPK property is in a structurally favourable geological setting where the Archean-aged Bartman Lake
Greenstone Belt lies adjacent to a major bend in the regional scale Stull-Wunnummin Fault (Figure 3).
The Property has been intruded by the 15km long Freure Lake Batholith. A gold grain-in-till anomaly
extends southwest from the southern edge of the batholith, suggesting that the associated bend in the
Stull-Wunnummin Fault propagated a series of gold-bearing splay shears, concentrated along the
southern margin of the structurally resistant buttress formed by the batholith. This metallogenic model
is an analogous to that for the Malartic-Val d’Or gold district in Québec, where gold deposits are
controlled by splay shears related to a major bend in the Larder Lake-Cadillac Fault and are hosted by
the synvolcanic Bourlamaque Batholith and several smaller granitoid and porphyry stocks.
Eastern Area of the Property:
There are only three known gold grain-in-till anomalies similar to the TPK target area in Canada. Two of
these anomalies, at Meadowbank and Meliadine in Nunavut (Agnico-Eagle Mines Limited), are in areas
of thin till cover and were identified by surface sampling techniques similar to those used by Northern
Superior Resources to define the TPK anomaly (Figure 4). The third gold grain-in-till dispersal anomaly is
in an area of thicker till cover on New Gold’s Richardson Township property, Rainy River district of
Ontario, and was defined by RC drilling. Each anomaly cited was later defined to represent an
amalgamated anomaly reflecting gold grain dispersal from a cluster of gold zones, most of which are
either being mined or have significant gold resources, underlining the potential importance of the TPK
Western Area of the Property:
The extension of the eastern gold-bearing shear zone onto the western part of the property was
identified through Northern Superior’s exploration programs (Figure 4). Specific gold targets associated
with this shear zone were also defined. Definition of these gold exploration targets is based on dispersal
of anomalous gold grain and arsenic values recovered from locally-derived tills, associated with zones of
structural dislocations and right-hand extensional bends as interpreted from the Company’s proprietary
airborne geophysics. This area of the property also has the potential to also host copper and silver, as
indicated by a 30+ cm wide bornite-chalcopyrite bearing quartz vein hosted in locally derived,
moderately to strongly sheared monzonite boulder, with dimensions approximately 2.0m x 1.5m x 1.5m.
This quartz vein returned values of 12.60 g/t gold, 111 g/t silver, and 4.05% copper (Photo 2).
Northern Area of the Property:
The source of gold grains composing the Keely Lake gold grain-in-till dispersal corridor are likely derived
from a new greenstone belt discovered by Northern Superior in 2011, on the northern part of the
property (Figure 5). The abundance of pristine and total gold grains increases with proximity to the belt.
Gold grain-in-till values are as high as 1,302 gold grains, 1,295 of which are pristine. The Keely Lake gold
grain-in-till dispersal corridor has a minimum width of 3.5km and a minimum length of 10km.
Prospecting on the greenstone belt recovered 100 sheared and/or mineralized boulders and outcrop
samples of which 83 were anomalous in gold (>0.005 g/t Au): including 24 samples with values between
0.1 and 1.0 g/t gold and 9 samples over 1g/t gold. Sample L754014 (727 g/t Au, 48.2 g/t silver (Ag)
contained visible gold observed in a quartz vein, the visible gold grains up to 2mm diameter. Sample
L754025 (133 g/t Au, 4.9 g/t Ag) was recovered from a boulder 40m east of the boulder containing
visible gold (L754014), and is of the same lithology, is tabular, measuring approximately 2.0m x 1.0m.
The greenstone belt, consisting of a mafic volcanic unit, appears to be transected by a southwest
trending, left-handed wrench fault. This fault and associated bedding-parallel shear zones splaying from
it, likely provided extensional pressure gradients that permitted access through the crust for gold-
bearing hydrothermal fluids at the time of deformation.
