About the Pathfinder Property
The Pathfinder property comprises 3 claims covering 295.57 hectares and in the Greenwood Mining District and is surrounded on three sides by KG Exploration Inc. (Exploration Division of Kinross Gold). The Pathfinder property is part of the Belmont group of claims (see Project portfolio following) that they have been acquiring in the Greenwood Mining District since 2019.
In 2019 the Company completed a sampling program than provided gold values up to 29.2 grams per tonne (g/t) Au (quartz-sulphide vein material). (See News Releases from March 28th, May 9th & July 30, 2019). The work report gives details of surface rock sampling and compilation of previous published and un-published reports.
The work carried out included a detailed literature review as well as five days on the property carrying out mapping of outcrops, old mine workings, and other significant features. Fifteen (15) surface rock samples were also collected from outcrops and old mine waste piles. Gold values ranged from 0.006 ppm Au (altered silty volcaniclastics) to 29.2 grams per tonne (g/t) Au (quartz-sulphide vein material), with seven (7) of the samples returning grades of >1 g/t Au along with elevated to anomalous silver and base metal values.
The mapping and sampling program verified the presence of multiple zones of quartz sulphide vein and massive pyrite-pyrrhotite-chalcopyrite replacement/skarn mineralization that warrant follow-up.
The property has had small scale, high grade gold mining with silver as an accessory product since the late 1800's. Belmont has information from mining reports and studies carried out by other companies as well as the recent assay and survey data in order to plan the next stage of exploration on Pathfinder including strategically locating drilling targets.
