The drill holes were completed using Reverse Circulation (“RC”) drilling which is used by the Company to drill shallow, sub-200m holes more cost efficiently than traditional exploration. The drilling was part of the Company’s 14,500m drill program focused on expansion of the existing gold resource on the White Gold property. This program includes expansion of the Golden Saddle deposit and exploration of nearby targets such as the Ryan’s Showing. A diamond drill will be moved to the discovery site to perform additional exploration. Images to accompany this news release can be found at http://whitegoldcorp.ca/investors/exploration-highlights/.

You don’t have to be in the Yukon for very long before you hear about Shawn Ryan. Last year, I’d just landed and was in the hotel pub with two great people who are legends in the placer business and was asked, “So are you going to see Shawn?” I had no clue. And as I travelled to the now Goldcorp Coffee deposit the geo who was running the tour said, “Shawn was over this property.”
The recent Government of Yukon, in partnership with Yukon Mining Alliance and Yukon Chamber of Mines, lunch in the heart of Toronto’s Bay Street brought some of the Yukon’s most prominent mining executives together with brokers, institutional investors and analysts from the Canadian financial world.
When you embark on a tour of the upcoming mines of the Yukon the first thing which hits you is the sheer size of the place. Miles and miles of untouched, trackless, wilderness separates many of the properties from any sort of population centre. To cover eight properties and a full-scale mining conference in six days means a lot of fixed wing flying, helicopter jumps and bumpy drives down gravel (if you’re lucky) roads.
