How we operate
Since 2009 our mission is to find new frontiers for the growing placer gold mining industry of the Yukon. After the exploitation of the historical claims, today we are witnessing a stronger demand for new mineable ground.
The high gold price of our days is now augmenting the chances for successful mining operations along the so called ‘lower-grade areas', considered not profitable when the price was 4-5 time lower.
This new golden-age boosted the demand for large placer deposits and is now pushing geologists and prospectors over the boundaries of the historical goldfields. It also encourages to re-open the doors of the old properties neglected in the past for been considered ‘borderline’ when the price was at its lowest peak. With this modern gold fever, many old/underexploited claims are now representing the potential for successful investments.
For these reasons we decided to address our search in two main direction: 1) scouting for new ground, outside the old/traditional fields; 2) test with modern equipment the dismissed mining areas, abandoned after the first gold rush, after WWI and WWII, or during the drops of the gold price.
Our way to operate combines historical information with geological analysis (bedrock geology, geochemistry, geophysical, structural, …).
After passing through archives and minfiles, we select creeks with enough reasons to justify a research and we start scouting with modern tools. After a previous analysis of the geological data on maps and satellite pictures, we begin our field work: drilling at first and afterwards performing extended bulk-sampling campaigns. Months of work and big investment of energies and men-power. By the end of our efforts, only the ground which showed the best results will be converted into gold properties, with all the license and the permits to start a gold production.
We are using all the latest technologies, together with traditional field work with heavy equipment. We have a lots of energies and enthusiasm to invest in research, and a solid geological background.
We already proved our good work with the opening of successful mines.
