is pleased to announce that it has entered into a mineral property option agreement dated April 13, 2021, pursuant to which it has been granted the option to acquire the Lower Manitou Gold Project from its existing owners .

The claims comprising the Lower Manitou acquisition host 4 historic gold occurrences including numerous shafts and workings dating back to the late 1800s.

The Reliance Prospect and nearby mineralized shears notably strike parallel to the >5 km long Queen Alexandria – Bird Island trend , as discussed in Cross River’s news release dated Feb.
