A message from President and CEO, Mr. Flood: "We are very excited about closing this transaction and being listed as a new public company on the TSXV. Northway Resources was founded last year with the primary focus to explore for gold in Alaska. The Healy Project, which we have optioned from Newmont Goldcorp, presents significant opportunities for Northway in the Goodpaster Mining District, host of the Pogo gold mine. We have the advantage of picking up where Newmont left off, following multiple years of systematic regional exploration which has led to the definition of numerous drill-ready targets which have never been tested. We look forward to updating the market with drill results this fall as they become available."
