Leeward's Pistol Lake gold property has a dataset of dependable historical mapping, trenching and drilling, completed primarily by Chevron before Pistol Lake was acquired by Leeward. A NI-43-101 compliant Technical Report for Pistol Lake was completed by the Company and is available in the reports section on Leeward's website and on SEDAR. Exploration is planned to build upon the current database in order to complete a scoping study for the Pistol Lake gold project.
The Nithi Mountain Molybdenum deposit is an intermediate stage project with combined inferred and indicated reserves of 387,192,000 tonnes of molybdenum ore. The details of these tonnages and recommendations for further drilling are described in the 2011 Tetra Tech Wardrop technical report available on Leeward's website. Leeward is confident that both grade and tonnage will be further advanced based on the technical review and recommendations. Nithi Mountain is located adjacent to past producer Endako mines, in an area with excellent infrastructure.
