Project Highlights

  • Large 49,600 hectare land package targeting prospective Carlin-style gold deposits hosted in carbonate stratigraphy
  • Drill-ready gold prospects discovered through grassroots exploration
  • Multi-gram gold in soil anomalies (up to 6.36 g/t) and rock grab samples > 10 g/t gold
  • Database includes >13,000 soil, silt and rock samples collected at a cost of $1.2 million
  • Barrick and Newmont active in region
  • 50-50 joint venture between Carlin Gold Corporation and Constantine Metal Resources early movers in the Selwyn Basin with multiple large claim blocks covering prospective gold targets

Why the Yukon?

Multiple new gold discoveries have highlighted the Yukon’s exceptional potential. The majority of these discoveries have been “grassroots” in nature and have advanced quickly from raw stream sediment or soil anomaly prospects into advanced stage projects. The Yukon has the right geology for hosting top tier gold deposits, yet remains grossly underexplored, with vast regions of the territory receiving virtually no modern methodical exploration for gold.

A science-based approach was taken, with claims staked specifically to cover tracts of ground with geochemical and geological elements characteristic of Carlin-type gold systems.  Targeting criteria in the Yukon include:

  • Ancient continental margin tectonic setting, similar to Nevada
  • Prominent regional scale thrust faults similar to those present in the Carlin-type environment in Nevada
  • Favorable carbonate-bearing host rock sequences
  • Key pathfinder elements in regional stream sediments
  • Presence of regional-scale antiforms that may present structural traps for gold mineralization
