The Clone project comprises 10,688 hectares and is located in BC's famous Golden Triangle district just 16Km South-East of Stewart, BC. Recent ice retreat has led to the exposure and identification of new alteration zones and targets. A late 2017 surface sampling program confirmed mineralization of 101 g/t gold over 7.5m and 245g/t (7.1 oz/t) gold over 1.5m confirming the width and grade of the "H zone" demonstrating the potential for new discoveries on the Clone property.View Associated Release
South-East Ablation Zone
Historically a 2Km2 area was the main area of interest at Clone and the focus of previous work programs. While this core area is still important, retreating ice has recently exposed virgin ground that has never been seen or explored before. There are several areas of ablation on the property including the "South-East Ablation Zone" which is a priority due to it being 2Km SE across a glacier from the core Clone area and on strike with the Clone mineralized structures. In late fall of 2017 this area was identified from the air due to its clearly visible oxidization. The recent LWIR study also indicates Hematite and Alunite anomalies in this same area.
High-grade gold and gold-cobalt mineralization was discovered by Teuton-Silver Grail prospectors in 1995 within a series of shears exposed over a strike length of 500 meters and a vertical range of 130 meters. Trenching of the shears returned values ranging up to 3.59 oz/ton gold over 5.5m (18 feet). Over the years a variety of companies have drilled more than 175 holes totaling upwards of 17,300m, notably Teuton, Homestake, Canasia, Lateegra Resources, and Silver Grail. Exploration was mostly conducted in the H and S zones leaving the South East Ablation Zone as a prime, untouched target.
