42803 Norwalk Shaft MP Grab (Check) Quartz Vein with 5 to 10% Sulphides, mostly Arsenopyrite 64.04
42804 Norwalk Shaft MP Grab Quartz Diorite with Quartz Veinlets and 10% Sulphides 3.15
42805 Norwalk Shaft MP Grab Quartz Vein with Chloritic Seams and 3 to 4% Sulphides 1.10
42806 Norwalk Shaft MP Grab Quartz-Feldspar Schist with Narrow Quartz Veins, 5 to 8% Sulphides (Arsenopyrite Needles) 2.94
42807 Norwalk Shaft MP Grab Sericite-Chlorite Schist, 5 to 8% Arsenopyrite 5.97
42807 Norwalk Shaft MP Grab (Check) Sericite-Chlorite Schist, 5 to 8% Arsenopyrite 6.26

42809 Norwalk Shaft MP Grab Quartz Diorite, 3 to 4% Arsenopyrite 0.38

Four further grab samples of local wall rock from the Norwalk Shaft Muck Piles returned 10 ppb to up to 350 ppb Au.

Sample Number Location Type Description of Rock g/Mt Au
42814 Historical Trench 100m East of Norwalk Shaft Grab Quartz Vein Material, 2 to 3% Sulphides 0.55
42815 Historical Trench 100m East of Norwalk Shaft Composite sample over 4m2 Quartz Vein, Gossan, and Altered Diorite, 2 to 3% Pyrite 6.39
42815 Historical Trench 100m East of Norwalk Shaft Composite sample over 4m2 (Check) Quartz Vein, Gossan, and Altered Diorite, 2 to 3% Pyrite 7.36
42825 Historical Trench 100m East of Norwalk Shaft Grab Quartz Vein, 30 to 40% Pyrite, Minor Arsenopyrite 3.96
42826 Historical Trench 100m East of Norwalk Shaft Grab Quartz Vein with Semi Massive Sulphides, Mainly Arsenopyrite 2.82

Three further grab samples from the Norwalk Adit entrance returned 110 ppb to up to 200 ppb Au.

Seven grab samples were taken from the Gananoque Adit entrance and returned 20 ppb and up to 1.45 g/Mt Au.

Five grab samples were taken from an historic trench on the south west corner of the Norwalk Property and all were gold-bearing and returned assays from 10 ppb up to 120 ppb Au.

Gold mineralization at Norwalk is hosted by altered diorite, gossan and quartz. Gold-bearing composite sample 42815 demonstrates that gold mineralization may occur over significant widths.

Rock samples were submitted to Swastika Laboratories Ltd. for Gold fire assay. Swastika Laboratories Ltd. is accredited by Canadian Association for Laboratory Accreditation Inc. (CALA) and meets the requirements of ISO/IEC 17025:2005 for Gold by Fire Assay.

Paul Antoniazzi, President of RT Minerals Corp., states, “The Company is very encouraged with the widespread grade gold assays obtained from the recent limited surface sampling program. In my experience, it is significant to have so many gold bearing samples from initial sampling of several different areas of the ~1,000 acre property. Geophysical targets associated with this mineralization will be prioritized and drilled immediately”.

The Company is currently completing a 31 kilometre surface geophysical surveys covering parts of the Norwalk gold property. Upon completion of magnetic and IP (induced polarization) surveys, a drill program will be initiated to test targets. The drill program is expected to commence in the next 2 to 3 weeks. Details of the drill program will be announced when drill mobilization occurs.

The Company does not intend, and does not assume any obligation, to update these forward-looking statements. These forward looking statements represent management’s best judgment based on current facts and assumptions that management considers reasonable, including that operating and capital plans will not be disrupted by issues such as adverse market conditions, mechanical failure, unavailability of parts, labor disturbances, interruption in transportation or utilities, or adverse weather conditions, that there are no material unanticipated variations in budgeted costs, that contractors will complete projects according to schedule, and that actual mineralization on properties may not achieve any category of resource(s). The Company makes no representation that reasonable business people in possession of the same information would reach the same conclusions. Forward looking statements involve known and unknown risks, uncertainties and other factors which may cause the actual results, performance or achievements of the Company to be materially different from any future results, performance or achievements expressed or implied by the forward-looking statements. In particular, fluctuations in the price of gold, equity markets or in currency markets could prevent the Company from achieving its targets. Readers should not place undue reliance on forward-looking statements.
