Cline Mining’s Cline Lake Gold Property is located in Jacobson Township in the Wawa gold camp in Northern Ontario, Canada. Cline has completed an extensive diamond drill program on the property, the results of which were presented in a National Instrument 43-101 report prepared by independent consultant Dr. D. McBride PEng in December 2009. The NI 43-101 report identified seven significant new gold zones and areas of potential for future exploration work.

Historically, gold exploration drilling on the property has been targeted above the 500-foot vertical depths, but several of the holes were drilled to vertical depths of up to 2,000 feet. Drilling results from these new zones returned important intersections in grade and width including 2.10 ounces per ton over 23.7 feet; 0.29 ounces per ton over 10.4 feet; 0.9 ounces per ton over 9.0 feet; and 0.26 ounces per ton over 12.0 feet. Details are set out in the 43-101 Report (pp. 65, 66, 67). The discoveries and results from this work on the new zones show improving values at depth and in a similar geological setting to the Hemlo, Laronde and Lapa deposits.

The Company is carrying out an extensive diamond drill program on its Cline Lake Gold Property located in the Wawa gold camp in Ontario, Canada. There are four mine shafts on the Cline Lake property, the deepest going to 1,165 feet.

Assay results from all sixteen holes of the completed Phase I of the drill program have now all been received from Swastika Laboratories Ltd. of Swastika, Ontario. Results for the initial holes up to and including CL 07-9 were reported in previous news releases. A summary of the most important gold intersections encountered in the complete 16 hole program, including the additional results of the last six holes CL07-10 to CL07-15, is included here.

As a result of a recent technical review by Mr. Hendrick of the full Phase I project assay results, he notes that in hole CL 07-8 on section 2400E, infill sampling has extended a zone at 1,400 feet vertical depth that averages 0.186 opt gold over 25.9 feet (core length) including 0.773 opt over 4.3 feet. At 1,460 feet vertical depth, a second zone assayed 0.250 opt gold over 6.6 feet (core length). Hole CL 07-2 on section 3500E, returned numerous intersections highlighted by 0.105 opt gold over 52.2 feet (core length) including 0.530 opt over 8.5 feet at a vertical depth of 700 feet. A value of 2.173 opt gold over 2.3 feet was returned at a vertical depth of 1,700 feet. These wide spaced deep intercepts showing higher grades and core lengths are very encouraging as to increasing commercial potential in depth and strike length.

Mr. Hendrick reports that approximately 30,000 feet of BQ sized core has been logged and sampled in the Phase I program. North to south drill fences have been completed from west to east across the property on six sections located at 500, 1500, 2400, 3500, 4600, and 5500 E. The drill program was designed to define the geological, structural and mineralizing environment beneath the old historical shallow mine workings at depths never before drilled on the property (below 2,000 feet vertical).

Four shafts were sunk on the Cline Lake gold property in the early 1930’s and according to information published in the Canadian Mines Handbook the Cline Mine produced 332,670 tons at a recovered grade of 0.215 opt gold, with production coming from mine workings between surface and 500 feet vertical depth. The property is underlain by east-west trending, steeply dipping, mafic volcanics that are interlayered almost conformably with sills or dykes of felsite “quartz-eye” porphyry hosting sulphide and gold mineralized quartz veining. A major regional structural event, the Edwards/Cline Shear, dips 60-70 degrees north and runs west to east across the south of the property, and appears to be one controlling factor that localizes quartzsulphide-gold mineralization within the porphyries and volcanics. A second major structure, a shear/alteration zone, associated with the porphyry appears to dip steeply south and runs east-west across the northern portion of the property. Quartz-sulphide – gold mineralization is localized within the shear structure which appears to have been extended to approximately 3,200 feet on strike during the recent drill program. Visible “free” gold is seen frequently in the mineralized zones that have been intersected in this 16 hole program to vertical depths of 1,700 feet.

Mr. Dale Hendrick P.Eng, a Qualified Person for the purpose of Canadian National Instrument 43-101, has reviewed the full Phase I project assay results. He notes that in hole CL 07-8 on section 2400E, infill sampling has extended a zone at 1,400 feet vertical depth that averages 0.186 opt gold over 25.9 feet (core length) including 0.773 opt over 4.3 feet. At 1,460 feet vertical depth, a second zone assayed 0.250 opt gold over 6.6 feet (core length). Hole CL 07-2 on section 3500E, returned numerous intersections highlighted by 0.105 opt gold over 52.2 feet (core length) including 0.530 opt over 8.5 feet at a vertical depth of 700 feet. A value of 2.173 opt gold over 2.3 feet was returned at a vertical depth of 1,700 feet. These wide spaced deep intercept’s showing higher grades and core lengths are very encouraging as to increasing commercial potential in depth and strike length. Mr. Hendrick reports that approximately 30,000 feet of BQ sized core has been logged and sampled in the Phase I program. North to south drill fences have been completed from west to east across the property on six sections located at 500, 1500, 2400, 3500, 4600, and 5500 E. The drill program was designed to define the geological, structural and mineralizing environment beneath the old historical shallow mine workings at depths never before drilled on the property (below 2,000 feet vertical).
