Owned 100% by Pacific Ridge, Redton is over 3,460 hectares in size and is located in the prolific Quesnel Terrane, between KUG and Mount Milligan (Centerra Gold). Redton is in a similar geological environment to other copper-gold porphyry deposits in BC such as KUG (Centerra), Mount Milligan (Centerra), Red Chris (Newcrest) and Saddle North (Newmont).
The target at Redton is a copper-gold porphyry deposit.
Redton is adjacent to NorthWest Copper Corp’s Kwanika deposit.
A number of targets exist at Redton: Redton North, Redton East, East Swan and the Catchment Basin.
In 2022, Pacific Ridge identified a surface geochemical target of similar size and orientation as the Kwanika Central Zone footprint, located 4.5 km east of the Kwanika following an interpreted arc-transverse lineament.
Redton is located within the Quesnel Terrane, a Mesozoic island arc terrane juxtaposed against the ancestral North American continental margin (Nelson and Bellefontaine, 1996). The Quesnel Trough largely comprises Upper Triassic and Lower Jurassic island arc volcanic and sedimentary units of the Takla Group (Triassic) and the Chuchi Lake and Twin Creek successions (Jurassic). The Hogem intrusive suite also features prominently, comprising Late Triassic and Early Jurassic composite plutons that are presumably the intrusive equivalents of the island arc volcanic units (Nelson and Bellefontaine, 1996).
