The Company’s Southern Gold Line project is located 100 km WSW of the regional administrative centre of Skelleftea in north-central Sweden, and consists of 500 square kilometres (50,000ha) of mineral claims located in the immediate vicinity of Dragon Mining Ltd’s Fäboliden development project and Svartliden gold mine1. Further to the north of Svartliden lies Agnico Eagle/Barsele Minerals’s Barsele gold deposit. The Southern Gold Line exploration concessions cover areas with similar geologic and structural settings to known gold deposits within the broader Gold Line belt (orogenic gold deposits located at, or near, granitoid-greenstone contacts). Host rocks to the gold mineralization are Paleoproterozoic in age.
Reconnaissance sampling and mapping programs are underway over the entire claim block, with the initial Bulk Leach Extractable Gold (“BLEG”) samples having been collected across portions of the licenses showing multiple areas with enrichment of gold in stream sediments. Planning for “bottom of till / top of bedrock” auger drilling in the highly prospective southern Rötjärnen claim, where gold mineralized boulder trains have been identified on surface, is also underway with the auger drilling currently expected to begin in late 2020.

Boulder field with gold-mineralized boulder trains - Rötjärnen claim
2020/2021 Work Program
Planning is currently underway for a “bottom of till/top of bedrock” auger drill program on the highly-prospective Rötjärnen claim at Southern Gold Line, where locating the source(s) of gold-mineralized boulder trains remains a high priority. In parallel, a low-cost regional BLEG sampling program continues to be progressed on the 50,000 Ha property.
