    Ootsa Project

    The Ootsa Project is located 120 kilometres south of the town of Houston, BC, and is located on the south side of Tahtsa Reach with good all weather road access.  The claims contain a network of logging roads providing excellent road access throughout the central and eastern portion of the claim block.  The Ootsa Property is adjacent to the Huckleberry Mine and Mill Complex owned by Imperial Metals Corporation.

    The Ootsa Property is supported by a 35-man exploration camp.  Exploration activity can be conducted year-round.  To date Surge has drilled 144,000 metres of core on the project in over 350 holes.

    *Width refers to drill hole intercepts, true widths have not been determined.  **Cu Eq. (copper equivalent) has been used to express the combined value of copper, molybdenum, gold and silver as a percentage of copper, and is provided for illustrative purposes only.  No allowances have been made for recovery losses that may occur should mining eventually result.  Calculations use metal prices of US $2.50/lb copper, $1200/oz gold, $15 silver, and $10/lb molybdenum using the formula Cu Eq.% = Cu% + (Au g/t x 0.701) + (Ag g/t x 0.0087) + (Mo% x 4.01).

    Current Activities

    The Ootsa property contains numerous untested Cu-Au porphyry exploration targets adjacent to and on trend with known deposits. The large property also contains numerous Au-Ag and base metal zones that have seen limited modern exploration. During the 2021 field program, the Company plans to advance Ootsa with 3 main objectives:

    1. Optimize the existing deposits by expanding existing resources and known higher grade trends where they remain open, and continue ongoing efforts to remove project risk which could include social, geotechnical, metallurgical, and environmental work.
    2. Drill test high priority Cu-Au porphyry targets that occur proximal to the existing deposits.  The objective will be to target new zones of near surface mineralization that would enhance the economics of the project.
    3. Advance several gold silver and base metal exploration targets within the Ootsa claim block. This will include early stage surface exploration with the possibility of drill testing later in the season.
