Golden Pursuit Resources Ltd. is pleased to announce that it has entered into a Purchase Agreement with Mike Vaydik (the “Vendor”), dated August 17, 2021 to acquire a 100% legal and beneficial interest in a mining lease pertaining to AP3 Mineral Claim located near Gordon Lake, in the Northwest Territories.

Brian McClay, President and CEO, commented “Acquiring the Vaydik Option provides an opportunity for GDP to evaluate other potential gold environments aside from the “gold in metaturbidites” occurring within large quartz vein and broad quartz breccia zones. The Vaydik Option offers a sedimentary/volcanic contact with iron formation stratigraphy as well as quartz vein systems which trend along and cut the sediment/volcanic contact. Although the age is Archean, there are many similarities to systems like that found at New Found Gold’s Queensway Project in Newfoundland”.

Details of the Agreement are as follows:

The Agreement provides that, subject to regulatory approval, the Company shall purchase such mining lease for an amount of $10,000. and 100,000 common shares.

Additional Agreement Details:

The Agreement is subject to a 2% net smelter return (“NSR Royalty”) in favor of the Vendor. The Company has the right, at any time to purchase 1% of the NSR Royalty (reducing the NSR Royalty to 1%) by paying the Vendor the sum of $1,000,000.

The Vaydik mineral lease has been explored since its discovery by Dome Mines in 1938 and subsequently by Precambrian Shield in mid 1970’s, where they completed 444.7 meters of drilling in 4 holes, with “a 5.18 meter interval in hole AP01 returning 4.4 g/t Au and 3.05 meters in AP02 returning 4.8 g/t Au”. Giant Yellowknife, in the late 1970’s, completed 887.4 meters in 7 holes and Aber Resources in 1985 (315 meters drilled in 3 holes).

In his 1986 Aber Resources Ltd. report J. Siddle P.Geo. wrote:

In 1984 and 1985 exploration programs at Myrt Lake outlined numerous interesting diamond drill targets. The limited 1985 diamond drilling program failed to locate ore grade intersections, It did however answer a few important questions. Firstly, it seems fairly certain now that AP gold occurrences are atleast two differenttypes. Aquite extensive auriferous regional exhalite exists along the west margin of the volcanic belt. While the assay values were low (0.83g/t Au & 1,82 g/t Ag over 6 m) they are definitely anomalous. In addition, there are several rather large auriferous vein/stockwork systems crossing the belt. These systems have given rise to the better assays both in drilling and in rock sampling (4 g/t Au in core and 10 g/t Au in rock sampling).

Considering that only a small length of the main “Shear Zone” exhalite horizon has been tested and the stockwork system with the best assays has not been tested at all, there are several very good diamond drill targets that should be tested. Additionally, the Grid 1 should be extended several hundred meters to the south. This would cover the large swamp which has an auriferous gossan (6 g/t Au) on the north boundary and a carbonate exhalative on the south boundary.”

The described “large swamp” setting is the type of eroded surface with gold that is featured in many occurrences at Gordon Lake, where deposits such as Kidney Pond are hidden by small lakes and swamps.

The agreement and the issuance of shares are subject to approval by the TSX Venture Exchange.
