The Traxxin Gold Project
The Traxxin claim group is located 130 km west of Thunder Bay, Ontario. The claims are road accessible via Trans Canada Highway 11. Local Infrastructure includes rail, power and an experienced mineral exploration workforce and mining supply, all located within hours of the property. Combined with the Traxxin Extension claims held by Bold and LdMLFN, the claim group is comprised of 151 claim cells and boundary cells that have an area of approximately 2,224 hectares or 5,496 acres.
Traxxin Gold Project Highlights
The claims host a well-defined gold-bearing structure along a northeast splay of the Quetico Fault.
Recent trenching and diamond drilling (2018) have identified a gold-bearing zone of at least 300 m in strike length associated with a well-defined sheared quartz vein surface exposure from 15 to 30 m wide.
Diamond drilling results include 4.76 g/t Au over 3.8 m (Hole BED-17-016) and 1.06 g/t Au over 22.2 M (Hole BED-17-005) and 37.3 g/t Au over 1.0m (Hole BED-17- 003) (Sims 2019).
The gold bearing horizon is open along strike in both directions. The 2017 and 2018 diamond drilling was near surface and tested above 100m. One hole (BED-17-022) in the central part of the zone did penetrate to almost 150m and intercepted the zone where it remains open at depth.
The main zone discovered in 2017 is located in the Marmion Lake Batholith, host to the Agnico Eagle’s Hammond Reef deposit of 5.31 Moz Au, which includes a Measured Resource of 75.3 Mt @ 0.75 g/t Au for 4.25 Moz and an Inferred Resource of 54.1 Mt @ 0.61 g/t Au for 1.06 Moz (Puumala 2020). The mineralization and resources hosted on the above property is not necessarily indicative of the mineralization, if any, hosted on the Company’s property
