About Mineral Mountain and the Rochford and Holy Terror Projects
Mineral Mountain Resources Ltd., through its wholly owned subsidiary Mineral Mountain Resources (SD) Inc., is focused on the exploration and, if warranted, the development of its 100%-owned Rochford Project situated along the highly prospective Homestake Gold Belt in the Black Hills of South Dakota, U.S.A. The Company, with its experienced technical team, has the benefit of a clear and successfully implemented exploration model that was applied at Homestake resulting in the 15 Ledge and North Homestake deep discoveries.
The Company’s other advanced gold project in the Black Hills, the Holy Terror Project, covers approximately 4,100 acres straddling a major gold bearing structural corridor measuring about 15 km in strike length and 1.5 km in width. At Holy Terror, between June 2012 and April, 2015, the Company completed three phases of diamond drilling totaling 6,900 m testing the Bismarck, Keystone, Holy Terror and Bullion gold horizons. All four gold horizons have significant expansion potential both along strike and down plunge and will require extensive drill testing to achieve a maiden NI43-101 gold resource.
The Rochford and Holy Terror Projects contain 17 historic “turn of the century” gold producers. Production of these mines came from early Proterozoic gold mineralization associated with iron formation, and shear zones similar to the deposits developed at the former Homestake Mine which, over 125 years, produced approximately 40 million ounces of gold. Both the Rochford and Holy Terror Projects are located near Rapid City where they can be easily accessed by a network of roads and has hydro-electricity and modern internet services to the drill sites. As well, the area offers a skilled labor force and is one of the lowest cost exploration areas in the United States. South Dakota has a low political risk and embraces responsible mineral development.

Such factors include, among others, the interpretation and actual results of current exploration activities; changes in project parameters as plans continue to be refined; future prices of gold; possible variations in grade or recovery rates; failure of equipment or processes to operate as anticipated; the failure of contracted parties to perform; labour disputes and other risks of the mining industry; delays in obtaining governmental approvals or financing or in the completion of exploration, as well as those factors disclosed in the company’s publicly filed documents. Although the Company has attempted to identify important factors that could cause actual actions, events or results to differ materially from those described in forward-looking information, there may be other factors that cause actions, events or results not to be as anticipated, estimated or intended.
