Belfast - Teck Mag Exploration Update
A 10,000m drill program is scheduled to commence by the beginning of June. The drill program will test the first 15 high priority geophysical targets that have been identified from the recently completed VTEM-Max and follow-up gravity and AMT geophysical surveys. Prospecting and ground-truthing of the targets is on-going. Data compilation and follow-up prospecting completed in April on some of the IOCG targets identified numerous large quartz veins proximal to the gravity anomalies. Some of these structures have been prospected back in the 1950's and 1960's, where anomalous copper and gold values were reported, however, the operators may have not recognized the significance of these structures as related to IOCG mineralization.
Camp construction is underway and will be completed in the next two weeks. A 10-person camp is being prepared in advance of the drill program for contractors and field personnel.

Conquest Resources Limited, incorporated in 1945, is a mineral exploration company that is exploring for gold on mineral properties in Ontario.
Conquest holds a 100% interest in the Belfast - Teck Mag Project, located in the Temagami Mining Camp at Emerald Lake, approximately 65 kilometres northeast of Sudbury, Ontario, which hosts the former Golden Rose Gold Mine and is underlain by highly prospective Abitibi greenstone geology along a strike length of seventeen (17) kilometres.
In October 2020, Conquest completed the acquisition of Canadian Continental Exploration Corp. which holds an extensive package of mining claims which surround Conquest's Golden Rose Mine, and subsequently doubled its land holdings in the Temagami Mining Camp through the staking of 588 mining cells, encompassing approximately 93 sq km., centered on Belfast Township, on the edge of the Temagami Magnetic Anomaly.
Conquest now controls over 260 sq km of underexplored territory, including the past producing Golden Rose Mine at Emerald Lake, in the Temagami Mining Camp.
Conquest also holds 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 Mining land holdings.
In addition, Conquest owns a 100% interest in the Smith Lake Gold Property of six patented claims and 181 staked mining claims to the north, west and south of the former Renabie Gold Mine in Rennie Township in northern Ontario, operated by Corona and Barrick that had reported gold production of over 1,000,000 ounces between 1947 and 1991 (Northern Miner March 4, 1991).
