The North Brown Property is located on the prolific Battle Mountain Gold Trend of Nevada, approximately 19 km (12 miles) southwest of Eureka.
North Brown is 100% controlled by Columbus Gold, subject to underlying royalties.
The property has yielded a number of good grade gold assays (ranging from 2 to 6 g/t Au) in the initial sampling of altered sedimentary rock float. The nearest outcrops are Devonian limestone and Mississippian siltstones with local zones of silicification. Geologic mapping is completed and grid sampling is planned for late fall or early 2012. Drilling is planned for late 2012.
