- Adjacent to and on strike with Evolution Mining’s Campbell-Red Lake Mine which has produced 23.8 M ounces of gold at an average grade of greater than ½ ounce gold per ton (or greater than 15.6 g/t).
- Balmer volcanics intersected at depth on the Gold Centre Property.
- Underground development from adjacent mine less than 350 metres away.
- In the heart of the highest-grade gold camp in North America having produced more than 29.5 M ounces of gold at an average grade of 15.41 g/t Au during the past 91 year.
Key Characteristics of the Gold Centre Property (from the 2014 NI 43-101 Technical Report on the Gold Centre Property by Osmani and Zulinski):
- The favorable Balmer mafic metavolcanics hosting several gold deposits at the adjacent Red Lake Mine have been identified in drill core and on surface following the 2013 geological mapping program.
- The more recent discovery of the Far East Zone by Goldcorp has provided further support that the southwest dipping Red Lake Mine trend potentially extends through the Gold Centre Property at depth.
- The interpreted unconformity between the Balmer and Huston assemblage will be a high priority target on the Gold Centre Property. Several of the Red Lake mines occur within or adjacent to this regional unconformity according to Dubé et al (2003: Gold mineralization within the Red Lake mine trend: example from the Cochenor-Willans mine area, Red Lake Ontario, with new key information from the Red Lake Mine and potential analogy with the Timmins camp. Geological Survey of Canada, Current Research 2003-C21).
- Following the geophysical IP survey in 2013, a total of 9 anomalous trends have been interpreted on the Gold Centre Property, three of which are identified on the North Grid as strong to very strong. Two are indicative of a sulphide mineralization source potentially associated with complexly folded/faulted contact between the Huston conglomerate and Balmer mafic metavolcanic rocks. An additional strong-very anomalous trend has been identified on the South Grid.
Trillium Gold is planning an aggressive exploration program for the Gold Centre project. A key component of the C$2 million drilling program is deep oriented core drilling (2 holes of 1,000m) to test for the down-plunge extension of the High Grade Zone (“HGZ”) currently in production at the neighboring Evolution Mining’s Red Lake mine. With success, Trillium will have proven that this prolific gold zone continues on to the Gold Centre property and is only about 350m from the current operating areas of Evolution’s mine.
