Description:

The Trek 31 project is a 94 square-kilometre, early-stage exploration property located 80 kilometres southwest of Vanderhoof in the Nechako Plateau, British Columbia. The property is located 30 kilometres northeast of Artemis Gold Inc Inc’s Blackwater gold silver deposit with a measured and indicated resource containing 11.7 million ounces gold and 122 million ounces silver at a 0.2 g/t gold-equivalent cut-off1).  TREK 31 was identified by Orogen using data from Geoscience BC’s TREK initiative.

 

Exploration Highlights

  • TREK 31 covers one of the largest and strongest geochemical anomalies identified in Geoscience BC’s $4.0 million TREK initiative
  • Early exploration by Orogen has outlined a 500-metre-wide gold-in-till anomaly situated immediately down ice of a magnetic high interpreted to be volcanic and intrusive rocks of Eocene Ootsa Lake Group
  • Recent follow-up till sampling includes a second till anomaly four kilometres to the east of the original Geoscience BC anomaly
  • Property has potential for a Blackwater-like mineral system marked by extensive quartz-sericite-pyrite alteration that can be outlined with magnetics and IP surveys
  • Property has an extensive network of logging roads and has been permitted for a winter drill program
  • 100 % owned by Orogen – staked in 2018.

Orogen plans to complete an Induced Polarization (IP) geophysical survey across the source area of the western till anomaly to identify areas of anomalous chargeability and resistivity for testing with a reverse-circulation drilling program from existing logging roads.  Additional till sampling is also planned around a second gold-in-till anomaly four kilometres to the east of the original Geoscience BC anomaly.
