Strategic Exploration Group is a collection of junior resource companies that are focussed on exploring mining-friendly jurisdictions in northwestern Canada. The Group enjoys a close working relationship with Archer, Cathro & Associates (1981) Limited, a geological consulting firm with extensive knowledge and exploration experience in our focus area. Archer Cathro provides the Group unrestricted access to its unparalleled proprietary mineral databases.

The Group combines experienced management and youthful scientists and entrepreneurs. Its goal is to use the team's various strengths in research, property acquisition, marketing and project financing to identify and capitalize on resource and business opportunities.

Each company in the Group has its own mandate and is successfully implementing a well defined business model.

ATAC Resources Ltd. is a well-funded, Yukon-based exploration company focused on developing Canada's only Carlin-type gold discovery at its 100% owned Rackla Gold Project. The Rackla Gold Project was a grassroots discovery made by ATAC in 2006 and exploration to date has been focused within the Rau Trend on the Tiger Zone, a high-grade at/or near surface oxide gold target. In 2010, the discovery of the Osiris Zone shifted the focus to the Nadaleen Trend, 100 km to the east of Tiger zone where drilling has confirmed four Carlin-type gold discoveries at the Osiris, Conrad, Eaton and Isis zones. In 2011, ATAC is planning an aggressive 40,000 m drilling program to identify additional Carlin-type gold discoveries within the 125 sq/km Nadaleen Trend and further define the Osiris, Conrad, Eaton and Isis zones.

Strategic Metals Ltd. is a Yukon-focussed exploration company that has assembled an exceptional portfolio of more than 160 property and royalty interests. Through investments and farmouts, the Company has rapidly grown its working capital to more than $100 million. In 2011, Strategic will focus on its wholly-owned Midas Touch and Silver Range projects. At Midas Touch, priority targets for Carlin-style gold mineralization have been identified in the vicinity of ATAC Resources' new Osiris discovery. These include the Crag property, which hosts the only occurrence of orpiment and realgar in the district, other than ATAC's Osiris discovery located 40 km to the east. At the Silver Range project, multiple large-scale targets have been identified with bulk-tonnage silver-lead-zinc-copper mineralization potential. The Silver Range project has been transferred to Silver Range Resources Ltd., shares of which will be distributed to Strategic shareholders by way of a Plan of Arrangement later this spring.

Rockhaven Resources Ltd. is concentrating most of its efforts on its wholly-owned Klaza property, a high grade and bulk tonnage gold-silver prospect located in Mt. Nansen mining camp of southwestern Yukon. This road accessible camp is located in the Dawson Range Gold Belt, where numerous promising gold discoveries have been made in recent years by Kaminak, Underworld and others. Rockhaven owns a large land position in one of the most underexplored parts of the belt.
Key Developments



Thanks for the reminder about ATAC. I had owned them for a brief period a while back, but sold during a portfolio rationalization process while trying to raise cash. You just prompted me to take a fresh look at a time when my cash is back on the rise, and I'm grateful for that.

Even though the Rackla Project is their headliner, their Dawson properties look very well located adjacent to Kinross' properties acquired from Underworld.

Might sound silly to say, but building a handsome and effective website really is an important means of generating broadbased retail interest. They've done a good job with theirs. Compare that to Brigus Gold's unfortunate site, and they're a producer! I've been all over them for the past year to give it a major facelift.

Going snowboarding to cure a cold,

Monster Mining is another one to consider for exposure to the region, as their Lightning property appears hard for Alexco to ignore going forward.
