Marshall Lake

Marshall Lake Mining PLC and Rainy Mountain Royalty Corp each hold a 50% interest in the all year round road accessible Marshall Lake Copper Zinc Volcanogenic Massive Sulphide (VMS) Property, located 310 kilometres north of Thunder Bay, Ontario, Canada.

White Tiger Mining Corp (TSX-V:WTC) has the option to earn an initial 50% interest in Marshall Lake Property project from Marshall Lake and Rainy Mountain by spending c$4 million in exploration expenditures over 5 years. This interest may be increased to 75% by taking the project to bankable feasibility. At bankable feasibility interests will appear as White Tiger 75%, Marshall Lake 12.5%, and Rainy Mountain 12.5%. To date White Tiger has spent in excess of C$1m on the project.

The Marshall Lake area was remotely explored from 1954 to 1996 leading to a series of high grade near surface copper zinc discoveries. The area currently being explored by the joint venture partners for this style of mineralization now covers fifty square miles.

Marshall became road accessible in 2000 following the completion of all weather roads by logging operators. This new road access permits the deployment of heavy digging equipment and greatly improves the logistics of diamond drill and geophysical programs significantly increasing the ability to explore intensively but at lower cost.

Canadian National Rail access is 27 kilometres south of the property on a direct road while the northern half of Marshall is readily accessable via the major road from Nakina which leads to Ogoki. This road is a key Ontario province development access route.

In December 2006 the joint venture partners drilled the historical Gazooma copper showing, which significantly expanded the known mineralization. A further drill hole released 6th June 2007 returned values of 4.47% copper, 86.59g/t silver, and 0.629g/t gold over 6.7 metres in hole GAZ-07-05.

A further five copper zinc showings have been discovered in the central area of the property plus the historical Billiton copper zinc deposit, located 4 km to the north east of Gazooma which was extensively re-drilled in 2007 to confirm earlier results. These new discoveries along with expansion of known mineralized zones highlight the potential for multiple copper zinc deposits on the property indicating that this has the potential to become a significant VMS camp comparable to other historical VMS camps such as Sturgeon Lake and Bousquet.

The strategy is to define and develop a series of near surface copper zinc deposits on the property and then extend these to depth with our joint venture partners, White Tiger Mining Corp.
