A quick article on the recent Government of Yukon, in partnership with Yukon Mining Alliance and Yukon Chamber of Mines, Investor Lunch the heart of the Canadian Financial Establishment. Pretty impressive support for mining in the Yukon: here’s the link.
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.
Marathon Gold Corporation (“Marathon” or the “Company”) (TSX:MOZ) is pleased to report the very positive results of new drilling down through the en-echelon stacked quartz-tourmaline-pyrite-gold (QTP) veining of the Main Zone corridor at the Leprechaun Deposit, Valentine Lake Gold Camp, central Newfoundland. The new drilling confirms the continuity of excellent gold grades down through the more than 350-meter deep and 25-60-meter wide mineralized Main Zone corridor of the Leprechaun Deposit (Figures 1 & 2). The dominant shallow southwest dipping en-echelon QTP veining and lesser shear parallel QTP veining of the Leprechaun Deposit is similar to the dominant shallow dipping QTP veining of the Marathon Deposit as well as elsewhere throughout the Valentine Gold Camp.
Cache Exploration Inc. (the “Company”, or “Cache”), (TSX-V:CAY) is pleased to announce that visible gold (“VG”) has been observed, in drill core, from detailed logging of hole KI17-005 at the new East Gold Point target area. The 5-hole program has been successful in defining VG in a previously unrecognized structural host (please see news release 8-31-2017) and now in two newly intersected polymictic conglomerate settings at East Gold Point. East Gold Point is located some 5km from the 26.4g/t Au VG and finely mineralized intercept over 8m reported previously for the Rusty Zone.
Victoria Gold Corp. (TSX VENTURE: VIT) (“Victoria” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce the receipt of additional analytical results from the on-going 2017 Dublin Gulch (the “Property”) exploration campaign. These results include the first eleven (11) exploration drillholes at the Spinach target, a previously untested area north of the Olive-Shamrock Deposit. The Spinach target is the latest area to be tested on the Potato Hills Trend mineralization model. 2017 exploration at the Spinach target included soils geochemistry surveys, geologic mapping, trenches and diamond drilling focused on assessing the gold mineralization potential of the northern contact margin of the Dublin Gulch intrusive stock. Previous exploration work in this area had been restricted to mapping and only limited soils geochemical sampling. However, prior to drilling this season Victoria conducted a detailed soils geochemical survey over the target area and utilized these results to assist targeting subsequent Spinach trenches and drillholes.
Bonterra Resources Inc. (TSX-V: BTR, US: BONXF, FSE: 9BR1) (the “Company” or “Bonterra”) is pleased to announce that the ongoing resource development program in and around the Gladiator Gold Deposit has successfully further extended the Main, Footwall and North Zones by increasing the strike and depth by up to 300 m depth to the known mineralized horizons. Results from six recent drill holes significantly expand the size and confirm the continuity of the Gladiator Gold Deposit.
