Please give a brief overview of Auryn Resources

Auryn Resources Inc.  is a well-financed, success driven, gold exploration company boasting highly experienced management, Board and Technical teams with proven track records. Auryn is advancing the Committee Bay Gold Project, “CBGP,” located in Nunavut Territory, Canada. Auryn Resources is the third company that Chairman Ivan Bebek and CEO Shawn Wallace have started. Our team founded Keegan Resources and later Cayden Resources. Keegan became Asanko Gold and merged with its neighbor, PMI Gold. Cayden Resources was acquired by Agnico Eagles Mines (AEM) for C$ 205 million. I mention these prior achievements because I think that success begets success and it bodes well for our future at Auryn. That’s why I’m here. A much more detailed description of Auryn is provided in the Company’s Corporate Presentation.

Please describe Auryn Resources’ Committee Bay Gold Project?

As mentioned, Auryn Resources’ flagship property, the Committee Bay Gold Project, “CBGP,” is located in Nunavut, Canada. High-grade gold occurrences are found throughout the property’s 300 km strike length. Mineralization occurring within the CBGB is considered by some to be equivalent to that of other significant gold bearing greenstone-hosting deposits like Agnico Eagles Meadowbank & Meliadine mines located ~180 km to the northeast. The CBGP includes 217,600 hectares (537,701 acres) situated along the, Committee Bay Greenstone Belt, “CBGB.” A much more detailed description of the CBGP is contained on the Company’s website.

Can you give an overview of the Three Bluffs deposit? 

In September 2015, Auryn Resources acquired a 100% interest in the CBGP through our acquisition of North Country Gold Corp. The GBGP district is centered on the Three Bluffs high-grade gold resource that contains a NI 43-101 Indicated resource of 501,000 oz @ 8.42 g/t Au and an Inferred resource of
 772,000 oz @ 7.16 g/t Au, for a total of ~ 1.3 million NI 43-101 compliant ounces of gold, “Au.” The deposit remains open for expansion both along strike and at depth, and is considered to have excellent exploration upside to significantly increase the resource base.
