Until now it has been only sparsely drilled or tested at depths below 400 meters. Therefore, the project has excellent potential: mineralization remains open along strike and depth, and potentially in postulated parallel features. Over 40% of the drilled holes have intercepted greater than 10g/t Au over various interval lengths.
Early exploration was carried out on the southwest extension of the property in the middle 1930s and again later in the middle 1940s. There is little information available about work in these periods aside from reports regarding trenching, drilling and bulk sampling.
As of November 15, total 2021 drilling stands at 15,927 metres on the combined Newman Todd and Rivard Projects. The following tables provide all significant composite data and drill hole collars for the drill programs undertaken by Trillium Gold in 2020 and 2021.
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.
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.
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.
