About Conquest Resources
Conquest Resources Limited incorporated in 1945 is a mineral exploration company that is engaged in the exploration of gold properties in Ontario.
Conquest owns 100% interest in the Golden Rose Project at Emerald Lake, in the Temagami mining camp, located approximately 65 kilometers northeast of Sudbury, Ontario, underlain by highly prospective Abitibi Greenstone geology along a strike length of 17 kilometers. The former Golden Rose Mine is located deep within the regionally large, unexplained Emerald Lake (Temagami) Anomaly which closely resembles the magnetic signature of the adjacent Sudbury Basin.
In July 2020, Conquest entered into an agreement with Canadian Continental Exploration Corp. to acquire an extensive package of mining claims which surrounds Conquests' Golden Rose Mine Project at Emerald Lake in the Temagami mining camp northeast of Sudbury, Ontario. The package consists of almost 10,000 hectares of mining lands highly prospective for precious and base metals and under explored. When combined with the Company's current land holdings including the past producing Golden Rose Mine, Conquest will control over 130 square kilometers making it the one of the largest land holders in the Temagami Mining Camp.
Conquest also owns a 100% interest in the Alexander Gold Property located immediately east of the Red Lake and Campbell Mines in the heart of the Red Lake Gold Camp on the important "Mine Trend" regional structure. Conquest's property is almost entirely surrounded by Evolution Mines land holdings.
In addition, Conquest owns a 100% interest in the Smith Lake Gold Property which consists of six patented claims and 181 staked mining claims to the north, west and south of the Renabie Gold Mine in Rennie Township which had production of over 1,000,000 ounces of gold.
