The Contwoyto project is strategically located proximal to the past-producing Lupin gold mine. The mine was last operated by Kinross Gold Corp. who shut the mine down in January 2005. From the start of commercial production in 1982 to the final shutdown, Lupin produced in excess of 3.3 million troy ounces of gold at an average gold head grade of approximately 9 grams per tonne. The Contwoyto project properties host a number of known gold occurrences. Highlight drill intercepts from some of these occurrences include:
*Historical highlight drill results from 1980's and 1990's. Full drilling results ranged from background or anomalous values up to listed highlight intercepts.
