The Geological Report dated December 18, 2006 on the Skyharbour's Rainy River properties was prepared by David J. Busch B.A. B.Sc., PGeo. The report documents and evaluates previous preliminary exploration programs consisting primarily of overburden drilling. The report recommends a program to upgrade the data and identify and test gold targets. The program includes overburden drilling, line cutting, magnetometer and horizontal loop surveying to be followed by diamond drilling of prospective targets. These techniques will assist in identifying potential gold bearing structures and possible gold bearing sulfide rich zones in bedrock.
The Company has now mobilized geological personnel onto the D"1" and D"2" Claim Blocks. The D1 and D2 Claim Blocks are well located immediately to the southwest of the #17, the #433, and the new ODM gold zones of Rainy River Resources property. Known gold mineralization in the immediate area (Rainy River Resources) shows a strong affinity with northwest trending structures. Regional magnetic data indicates a series of these structures in the area. The newly acquired properties are located within extensions of the greenstone belt that is known to host the Rainy River Resources newly discovered gold deposits.
All of Skyharbour's Rainy River properties are viewed as having potential to host gold deposits based on favorable lithologies and presence of structures. Previous overburden drilling data (1997 Nuinsco and Mingold assessment files) has now been compiled and digitized by Skyharbour. One sample returned a value of 15,000 ppb calculated gold content. No subsequent work was ever followed up at this site location. Two other overburden drill sites showed calculated gold values of over 2,500 ppb gold, however the overall sampling density and distribution is not considered to be adequate at this time. Skyharbour intends to conduct a detailed overburden drilling program to provide more complete coverage and assist in the identification of drillable targets on the properties.
David J. Busch, B.A., B.Sc., PGeo., Vice President of Explorations, is the qualified person, under the meaning of National Instrument 43-101, and has reviewed the data in this News Release.
