The 100% owned Eureka Dome Property, located approximately 55 km northeast of White Gold’s Golden Saddle discovery, consists of 156 quartz claims. The property covers a 33 km2 area which is road accessible from Dawson City.
Placer gold occurrences have been reported in most creeks draining the property and geochemical anomalies suggest the presence of a high level epithermal style alteration system. Anomalous arsenic (3000 ppb) and mercury (17 ppm) occur within silicified and brecciated rocks.
Prior workers reported breccia float samples grading to 14 gpt gold, and silt samples running to 2,190 ppb gold on tributaries of upper Eureka Creek. Reconnaissance sampling by Pacific Ridge has defined a gold-mercury-molybdenum-antimony soil anomaly that requires detail follow-up sampling. Soil sampling over a portion of the headwaters of Eureka Creek in 2016 produced scattered anomalous gold values.
2017 Exploration Results
The 2017 soil survey defined a gold soil anomaly with associated anomalous values of arsenic, antimony and mercury. The source of this anomaly is interpreted to be structurally controlled, epithermal-style gold mineralization associated with the Eureka Creek fault zone. Creeks from streams downslope of this anomaly are enriched in gold, with values from historical sampling ranging from 360 ppb to 2,190 ppb gold. The Company plans a program of detailed mapping, prospecting and trenching to determine the source of this anomaly.
