The Company has staked approximately 6770 hectares of newly opened ground between the MacLellan Mine and Farley Lake Mine deposits along the Agassiz Shear Metallotect located northeast of the town of Lynn Lake.

The Company also has filed a final NI 43-101 technical report the optimized Preliminary Economic Assessment ("PEA") on SEDAR, which includes a post-tax Net Present Value of $257 million and an Internal Rate of Return of 34% using a 5% discount rate and US$1100 gold price (originally press released on February 27, 2014).
Carlisle President and CEO Abraham Drost stated that "The acquisition by staking of newly opened ground on the Agassiz Shear Metallotect between the MacLellan Mine property and the Farley Lake Mine property has increased the project's overall exploration potential significantly in a cost effective manner. Exploration for extensions to the known mineralization at MacLellan and Farley Lake deposits is greatly simplified as we now own 100% of this highly productive gold trend. The economic potential of the MacLellan and Farley Lake deposits is well described in the recently filed PEA technical report."
