The board and management of Puddle Pond Resources Inc., “the company” is pleased to provide this corporate update.

The company owns a diverse portfolio of 16 mineral resource projects covering a total area of 600 km2 strategically located in the principal exploration and mining districts on the island of Newfoundland. These projects are highly prospective for precious and base metals, Critical Minerals and Rare Earth Elements.

Newfoundland has been a prime target in North America for mineral exploration with 175,000 mining claims staked by numerous stakeholders since early 2020. This staking activity is the largest recorded for the island and one of the largest staking rushes recorded in Eastern Canada. Much of the interest is sparked by the discovery by New Found Gold of the high grade Keats Main Gold Zone on their Queensway Project.

The company was an early participant in the staking rush successfully building the portfolio of high-quality projects and adding to it’s highly prospective Heritage Gold & Silver Project where drilling since 2013 is outlining an emerging gold & silver resource. The silver mineralization at Heritage ranks it as the best silver project in Eastern Canada.

Puddle Pond has advanced its mineral projects utilizing the technical expertise of its operating team whereby potential mineral resources are outlined and precise drill targets for drilling follow-up have been generated. The 100% owned projects retained by the company contain yet to be NI 43-101 compliant historical, preliminary and geological resources summarized below:

ProjectResourceEstimate of Present-Day Value (CAD)
Heritage Gold – Silver ProjectPreliminary resource of 100,000 ozs equivalent gold (gold + silver)$285,000,000

Lake Bond Zinc (2.12%) – Copper (0.30%) ProjectHistorical resource of 2,500,000 tonnes (estimates up to 4,000,000 tonnes)$195,000,000
Total Potential Estimated Value in Present-Day CAD Dollars$835,000,000

The company expresses its appreciation to its shareholder base throughout North America for its ongoing support allowing it to grow as one of the leading mineral resource companies in Newfoundland and also to its technical team, consultants and advisors who diligently worked in maintaining and growing the portfolio of mineral resource projects.

Puddle Pond also would like to thank Dr. Richard Taylor of Ottawa, ON for his diligent support. Dr. Taylor who joined the management team in November 2020 committed to working with the company for 2 years. He agreed to stay on for an additional year and upon completing his tenure in January 2024 we thank him for his efforts and wish him all the best.

Victor French, P.Geo., a Qualified Person as defined by NI 43-101 and President & COO for Puddle Pond, is responsible for the technical information contained in this News Release.
