  • Claims covering the majority of the East Bull Lake Intrusion which hosts extensive palladium dominant mineralization in a contact breccia. A neighbouring Company recently announced a NI 43-101 PGE resource on claims covering part of the East Bull Intrusion adjoining the Grid East Bull Property.
  • One of the largest historical lithium resources in Manitoba ( 3.95 million tons grading 1.28% Li2O) – source Manitoba Inventory card #229. The resource is historical in nature and not NI 43-101 compliant. Although Grid considers the resource relevant it does not consider the historical resource estimate as a current resource estimate and is not relying on the historical resource estimate as a current resource estimate until such time as a Qualified Person has reviewed and confirmed the data. Results of drilling and mineralogical testwork are pending.
  • The Bannockburn Nickel Property near Matachewan Ontario. Bannockburn hosts the C Zone, a zone of massive sulphide nickel mineralization as well as a bulk tonnage dunite target on the Property. Bannockburn was acquired by Grid from the Canadian subsidiary of Outokumpu Mining of Finland.

QAQC

All core samples were sent to Accurassay Laboratories in Thunder Bay, Ontario. Analysis was completed for nickel, copper, cobalt and silver using an Aqua Regia digestion followed by AAS/ICP finish. For gold, platinum and palladium, fire assay of 30g aliquots followed by combination fire assay and AAS finish was employed. Drill core is logged and split on site at the Makwa site with half the core retained and stored. Grid conducts an ongoing QA/QC program on drill core including inserting blanks, duplicates and standards at regular intervals with all sample submissions to the laboratory.

Carey Galeschuk P.Geo. is a consulting geologist to Grid and is the Qualified Person. He has supervised and approved the scientific and technical contents of this release.
