ADJACENT PROJECTS

Proximal to Great Atlantic Resources’ Golden Promise property, host to the Jaclyn gold deposit

The Badger property is located 7 km from the community of Badger and is proximal to Great Atlantic Resources’ Golden Promise property, host to the Jaclyn gold deposit. The Trans-Canada Highway provides general access to the Badger area which hosts a network of Forest Service Roads. The property is made up of four licenses holding 1,910 claims covering 477.5 sq km.

The Badger property covers anticlinal structures, as indicated by government bedrock geology maps  and aeromagnetic geophysical surveys. The Caradocian graphitic black shale sequence is a useful marker to define the fold structure underlying the Badger and the other Taku properties.  A limited amount of historical base metal exploration was conducted on the Badger property, mainly for copper and nickel associated with gabbro sequences.

Historical government and company till sampling over the Badger property shows gold-in-till anomalies on the Badger property associated with regional anticline and syncline structures.
