About Everton Resources Inc.
The Corporation holds a 50% interest in the Ampliacion Pueblo Viejo (“ APV”) and La Cueva projects (the “ Concessions”), which are managed by Everton and are contiguous with Barrick’s and Goldcorp’s US$3 billion Pueblo Viejo gold project. Planned divestiture of its 100%-owned subsidiary Hays Lake Gold containing the Shoal Lake Gold Project in Kenora, Ontario is expected to provide internal funding to advance the APV project.
