The Shakespeare Project

Project Overview

The Shakespeare Project is located in the area of the historic Shakespeare Gold Mine, 88 km west of Sudbury, Ontario. Current exploration programs include drilling for high-grade gold near surface and across an identified gold bearing horizon of over 6 kilometres.


Excellent Infrastructure
  • Just off the Trans-Canada Highway
  • Power right to site
  • Educated workforce
Shakespeare Mine was in operation from 1903-1907
  • Historic exploration included trenching, sampling and limited drilling
  • 2,959 oz of Au were produced from six underground areas
Well-known geology on the prolific Canadian Shield
  • Project is located at the contact between the Archean, Southern and Superior geological provinces.


Exploring for high-grades in the shadow of a historical head frame.
Phase One: Q4 2020 (Completed)
  • 7 core holes drilled (~1300 m): anomalous gold in 5 holds, including J-7-20 with 5.5 m of 8.59 g/t Au and J-3-20 with 5.0 m of 5.37 g/t Au.
Phase Two: Q1 2021 (Completed)
  • 14 core holes drilled (~2000 m): mineralized zone extended to 115 m, highlighted by high-grade holes J-8-21 with 16 m of 16.37 g/t Au and J-9-21 with 16 m of 13.32 g/t Au & 4 m of 52 g/t Au.
Phase Three: Q2 – Q4 2021 (Completed)
  • ~7,000 metres drilled in three phases to date, significantly expanding the existing mineralized zone surrounding the Miller Shaft by ~150 m at depth and 120 m along strike.
Phase Four: Ongoing
  • Two drill rigs to complete a minimum of 5,000 m of core drilling with average hole lengths of approximately 150 m.
  • Geophysical surveying and interpretation to generate new exploration targets.
  • Continuous updating of 3D modelling with new data.


Our team reviewed numerous historical reports and initiated our exploration and drilling program in Q3 2020.
Potential for Significant Mineralization
  • Major northeast trending faults cross through the area.
  • A series of quartz veins and stock works of quartz veins containing sulphides identified on the property.
  • Quartz veins identified a considerable distance to then northeast of the former mine site, suggesting a regional structure.
  • Potential for other gold discoveries along the prospective Shakespeare gold-bearing horizon of over 6 km.

The Baldwin Project

Project Overview

The Baldwin Project is comprised of three mining blocks totalling 68 mining claims which are located directly east of the Shakespeare Gold Project. The property hosts exposure to a major splay off of the Murray Fault and initial work suggests that both Baldwin and Shakespeare share similar geological features.


The Baldwin project doubles Graycliff’s exposure in the vicinity of the Murray Fault and covers a major splay off the Murray Fault.
  • Initial due diligence suggests that both projects share similar geological features that the Company’s technical team identified during its first two drill programs at the Shakespeare Gold Project.
  • Regional field sampling program underway
  • Ground geophysics to be carried out in Q2/Q3 2022
  • Initial drilling in Q3/Q4 2022
