Mr. Phillip Thomas reports


A.I.S. Resources Ltd. has noted that Kirkland Lake Ltd. has won the tender issued by Earth Resources Victoria through the Department of Jobs Precincts and Regions. The tender was won on a commitment to spend up to $90-million on the three blocks it won. Kirkland Lake’s block 3 (EL007794) is adjacent to A.I.S. Resources EL006001 Fosterville-Toolleen project.

Across the three blocks for which it was the successful tenderer, Fosterville Gold Mine will spend more than $90 million over a five-year period. The successful tenderers will now progress through to the licensing stage, which includes a 21-day period for the public to make submissions regarding the licence applications.

The tender opportunity was offered to experienced minerals explorers who could demonstrate a history of responsible exploration and a commitment to working closely with Traditional Owners, local stakeholders, and communities. It attracted a strong response with tenders received from a competitive field.

Martyn Element, Chairman of AIS stated, “With almost $20 million being spent per year in the next 5 years exploring neighbouring properties AIS looks forward to its own drilling and ground work being done in the immediate future to further progress the Company’s exciting Fosterville Toolleen Gold Project.”

The Geological Survey of Victoria estimates that there may be up to 75 million ounces (Moz) of gold yet to find in the central and north central Victorian goldfields. This compares with the 80 million ounces of gold mined from the area over nearly 170 years.
