West Corridor Gold Project

The West Corridor project consists of 110 unpatented lode-mining claims (1,499 acres) and surface and mineral title to an additional 826 acres of patented land bringing the total area covered to approximately 2325 acres in the western portion of Lawrence County, South Dakota, USA. More specifically the claims lie within the Black Hills Meridian, Township 5N, Range2E covering portions of Sections 23, 24, 25, 26, 27, 28, 34 and 35, and Township 5N, Range3E covering portions of Sections 19 and 30.

Dakota Gold staked the unpatented claims of West Corridor between February 2020 and July 2021. There is no known encumbrance of any kind and there are no known private surface rights owners within the bounds of the claims with all surface rights on the unpatented portion of the property under the control of the USFS. Annual claim maintenance fees total $18,150.

213 acres of patented land were purchased in May of 2021 from Terrence Tyler and are subject to a 2% net smelter return royalty (the "NSR Royalty") held by Homestake Mining Company with a buyback right for 51% interest in the property subject to, among other provisions, the establishment of a 1,000,000-ounce reserve and/or inferred resource from one or more deposits located within a one-kilometer area of influence surrounding the property.

The West Corridor property is located just south of the mineral property Dakota Gold acquired from Deadbroke Mining Company in the Maitland Area in March of 2014, just north of the producing Wharf Mine (Coeur Mining, Inc.) and just to the south and east of the former Richmond Hill Mine (Barrick Gold Corporation ("Barrick"). Access to the property is gained by traveling 1 mile southwest of Lead, South Dakota ("Lead SD") on Highway 85/14A to State Highway 473 and then traveling west approximately 3.2 miles to Wharf Mine Road and continuing west approximately 1.2 miles before turning and traveling 1 mile north on the Richmond Hill Road.

The property is located midway along on a structural trend that extends northward from the Wharf Gold Mine on to the south through Richmond Hill to the north and can be traced further to the north under Paleozoic cover rocks by its geophysical signature. The targets of interest on the property are for 1) iron-formation hosted gold mineralization under the cover of younger sedimentary and igneous rocks and 2) Tertiary-age gold and silver mineralization found in Precambrian basement rocks, breccia pipes, carbonate replacements and other styles of epithermal mineralization. Geological field work and sampling in planned on the West Corridor property for 2024 field season.
