Kermode is pleased to announce that further to the Company's News Release dated May 10th
2012, crews have now completed staking an additional 70 claims which have been added to Kermode's Eastgate Gold Project, located in Churchill County, Nevada. The newly acquired claims bring the total property size to 101 claims, or 2020 acres (817 Ha).
Kermode's Eastgate Gold Project is located approximately 25 miles (40.2 km) northeast of the Rawhide Mine, 55 miles (88.5 km) east of Fallon in Churchill, County, Nevada. The property is less than 5 miles (8 km) south of U.S Hwy 50, and is accessible year round via dirt road. The Eastgate Gold Property features a well-developed hydrothermal system, and Kermode's target is to define a high-grade, low sulphidation epithermal gold-silver deposit. There are multiple sub-parallel quartz-adularia veins throughout the property. Small-scale historic production, as well as work carried out by various groups over the past 30 years, has established that significant gold and silver are present in the system. Several historic mines exist on the property including: Gold Ledge, Double Eagle, Eastgate, Sunny Jim, and Central. The main Eastgate Vein has been traced for over 2000 feet (610 m) along strike and 29 selected historic surface grab samples over the southern 1,100 feet (335 metres)of strike range from 0.03 to 3.19 opt or 1.0 to 109.0 gpt Au
and average 0.584 opt or 20.02 gpt Au.
A chip sample at shallow depth in the Gold Ledge Mine is reported to assay 0.876 opt Au over 4.5 feet or 29.73 gpt Au over 1.37 metres.
A limited number of RC drill holes resulted in notable, high-grade intersections. Highlights from historic RC Drilling include:
- 45 feet of 0.21 opt or 13.72m of 7.2g/t Au
- 15 feet of 0.34 opt or 4.75m of 11.66g/t Au
- 10 feet of 0.22 opt or 3.05m of 7.54g/t Au
- 15 feet of 0.30 opt or 4.75m of 10.30g/t Au
- 10 feet of 0.25 opt or 3.05m of 8.57g/t Au
The majority of work on Eastgate had taken place in times of low gold prices and tough market conditions. Furthermore, Eastgate had been privately held and had not been available for option during the recent (last 10 years) buoyant gold markets. As a result, Eastgate has never been fully and systematically tested along strike or at depth, and core drilling has never been carried out on the project.

Historic information includes drilling summaries, assay laboratory reports, surface sampling and mapping. Details of the sampling methods, handling, and quality control methods are unknown, and the historic drilling results being disclosed cannot be verified for the purposes of NI 43-101. Therefore this information is not NI 43-101 compliant and should not be relied upon for investment purposes. This information, however, is a useful guide for current exploration by the Company's geologists.
