7 Edwards Property River Gold Mines Ltd. : Production 1996 - 2001 Produced 144,000+ oz Au from underground mining operations on three zones with an average mined grade of 0.35 oz/ ton gold Ceased mining in 2001 due to low gold price Lower zones within the Carbonate and Porphyry veins were developed but not mined. Strike subsequently completed 41,000+ ft of diamond drilling delineating: New North zones (I & II) Plowman zones (1,2,3) Rusty Weathered zone Property permitted for mining, including limited surface facilities and a ramp for access to underground STK – TSX.V 7

13 Edwards Property GEOLOGIC MODEL 13 The development plan for the Edwards is the underground exploration of the new gold mineralized zones to achieve the near-term objective to commence production in 2012. The gold mineralization occurs in a quartz vein system and is similar to other gold quartz vein type deposits in northern Ontario and Quebec. Gold mineralization in these types of deposits has a nugget effect that can result in very high assays immediately adjacent to portions of the vein having no significant values. The drilling at Edwards has a similar result in that some intersections have significant gold mineralization and some do not. Historical underground production indicates that the average grade for the mineralized zones is approximately 0.3 oz/ton of gold. To obtain a more reliable estimate of the production potential of the new gold zones drifting along two of the new zones has commenced on the 60m level. This will allow underground bulk sampling to complete a full assessment on the production potential.

27 Located 48 km west of the Hemlo Gold Camp, gold was discovered and mined by Harkness-Hayes 1920 to 1940. Underground development included 1,730 ft drifting in 8 adits on high-grade gold bearing veins; There are other zones of gold mineralization that were exploited during that period; Morley, Gold Range, Longworth and Gale. Historical channel samples from Harkness-Hayes property have yielded significant values on veins 2 and 3. Historical channel sampling of Vein 3 values ranged from 1,396.7 g/t over a width of 25.4 cm to 2.63 g/t over a width of 25.4 cm. at 5 foot intervals over a 250 foot length. Vein 3 exposed near surface for approximately 125 metres available for bulk sampling. A diamond drill campaign has commenced, designed to test strike length, depth and continuity of the previously mined mineralized structures.
