Pelly Bay Nickel-Copper and Gold Potential

Churchill’s vast 1750km2 Pelly Bay Project on tidewater in Nunavut has demonstrated compelling potential for Voisey’s Bay-type intrusive-hosted Ni-Cu-Co mineralization as well as for shear zone and iron formation-hosted gold mineralization.  These need to be further investigated as only limited metals-focused exploration took place in 2008-2010, as an adjunct to earlier highly successful diamond exploration on the property. Churchill has engaged Goldspot Discoveries (SPOT-TSXV) to compile and generate targets from our $25million exploration database for the project.

Pelly Bay is underlain by Archean/Early Proterozoic (Churchill Province) rocks which host world-class mines at:

• Voisey’s Bay Ni-Cu-Co
• Mary River Fe mines
• Thompson Ni-Cu-Co
• Flin Flon
• Snow Lake Cu-Zn-Au-Ag
• Meadowbank/Amaruq Au
• Meliadine Au
• Raglan Ni-Cu-Co
• Wabush/Labrador City Fe mines

• Pelly received limited base and precious metal exploration 2008-2010, but no integrated focused exploration

• Churchill has hired Goldspot Discoveries to generate targets from ~$25million past exploration database

At the Tunerq Showing a Ni-Cu-Co bearing gossan was discovered in 2008, which returned drill intercepts of 9.1m of

All six short holes in the vicinity of the gossan were mineralized.

Some 50 other gabbros and ultramafic rocks with possible Ni-Cu potential, as well as numerous geo chem anomalies have been generated for follow-up

Gold Potential:

Gold in banded iron formation (“BIF”) known in several areas

SPOT using gold geo chem & grain data from tills, rock geo chem, geophysics, satellite imagery to generate targets for staking if not already on property – gossan identification key

Initial SPOT work led to staking in March 2021 upon map-staking opening in Nunavut.

Gold-bearing BIF staked by Churchill March 2021 as well as other promising areas exhibiting gold in bedrock, or pristine gold grains in till samples
