Trillium Gold

PROJECT
OVERVIEW
The Larder Lake Property (14 claims covering 4,630 hectares in 2 separate blocks) covers favourable fault structures within the Larder Lake gold camp, including a 12 km strike length along the easterly trending Misema-Mist Lake Fault, an eastern extension of the highly mineralized Kirkland Lake Fault, plus two N-NW trending cross structures, totalling an additional 4 km in length. The property’s eastern boundary is also the Ontario-Quebec provincial boundary.

The southern property boundary encompasses the easterly and westerly extensions of the Ossian Prospect. Historical work between 1924 to 1938 includes trenching, diamond drilling and sinking of a two-compartment exploration shaft to 64m (210 ft) depth and 240m (800 ft) of development on 2 levels. The prospect was described as an east-trending quartz vein containing sericite, calcite and pyrite traced over 120m in a felsic porphyry host rock. This vein returned assays up to 21.5 g/t Au over 1.23m (0.63 opt over 4 feet) from channel sampling.
Deposit Potential
Most of the previous exploration work on the Larder Lake property focussed on tracing the Ossian Prospect mineralization to the east. A 1996 reverse circulation drill program completed by Silver Century Explorations Ltd., indicated slightly elevated pristine and modified gold grain counts from 2 holes in the southeast portion of the property, suggesting a proximal to intermediate source of gold. Follow up work in 1997 included ground geophysical surveys, geological mapping/sampling and diamond drilling. One diamond drill hole testing an IP anomaly was completed on Trillium Gold’s current property. Gold mineralization was not encountered in this drill hole.

Exploration Results
The Walsh Mine prospect (Newfound Gold) is located 3 km south of the property. The primary mineralized zone is described as NE-striking quartz-ankerite veins traced 400m along strike and up to 1.5m width, containing pyrite, chalcopyrite, specularite, and galena. In 1924, a two-compartment shaft was sunk to a depth of 157m with lateral development on 4 levels. Two bulk samples collected in 1933 assayed 3.77 g/t Au (0.11 opt) and 64.1 g/t Au (1.87 opt), respectively. One of the better results of diamond drilling by Canper Resources Inc. in 1986 was 47.29 g/t Au over 2.5 feet.

ALL PROJECTS

Newman Todd

Previous exploration suggests over 20 individual high-grade zones along the current strike length of the northeast trending Newman Todd Structure (NTS).

Rivard [NT West]

In the NT West Extension, gold is observed in quartz veins in drill core, outcrops and in trenches across the property. Modest coarse gold production from pits and trenches has been ongoing for more than two decades by the Rivard family.

Gold Centre

Located in the heart of the highest-grade gold camp in North America, having produced over 29.5 M ounces of gold at an average grade of 15.41 g/t Au during the past 91 years.

Red Lake West

Located in the western margins of the Red Lake mining district on geological trend with Great Bear Resources, Red Lake Gold, and Pacton Gold’s southwest extending properties.

Shining Tree

Located in the famed Matachewan -Kirkland Lake mining district. 111 Moz of gold has been identified in resource estimates along the break, making this structure a major world-class host of gold.

Moose Creek, Caribou Creek & Copperlode West
Two underexplored Greenfield high-potential exploration properties.
Confederation Belt Properties
The 2,175 hectare Pakwash Lake project is located in the Cabin Bay Area of the Red Lake Mining District southeast of Great Bear Resources’ Dixie project.
Birch-Uchi Properties
The discovery of gold at Red Lake in 1926 precipitated approximately 10 years of extensive prospecting activity in the Birch-Uchi greenstone belt, which led to the discovery of numerous showings and several mines.
Larder Lake Properties
The Larder Lake Property covers favourable fault structures within the Larder Lake gold camp, including a 12 km strike length along the easterly trending Misema-Mist Lake Fault, an eastern extension of the highly mineralized Kirkland Lake Fault
Quebec Properties
The 25 claim SW Fenelon property (3,459 ha) is 140 km NNW of Amos, Quebec, and 65 km SE of Detour Lake. Soquem is contiguous to the north claim boundary, Wallbridge Mining and Midland Exploration are due west of the property, and Yourbeau Exploration is to the east.
