Following the recent drill success at Dixie, the total staked area within the Red Lake district increased by over 150 percent, constituting the area’s largest staking rush in decades. Great Bear has completed a model-driven geological review of the district using the Dixie property’s D2 fold and deep-seated structural gold controls as guides. This work suggests additional prospective areas for gold mineralization, which GBR has now secured.
The 3,100-hectare Pakwash property is located southeast of the Dixie property and covers portions of a regional fault structure. Historical work on the property identified gold lake sediment anomalies that coincide with regional fault zones and gold in-soil anomalies. To date, the anomalies have not been followed up on.
The 3,200-hectare Sobel property is located along the strike extension of the main D2 fold axial plane which could be a control for gold mineralization at Newmont Goldcorp’s Red Lake gold mine.
The company intends to conduct mapping and prospecting on the properties through to the year 2021.
