The Lynx target is road accessible and located centrally in the Dublin Gulch claim block approximately 5 km southwest of Nugget/Raven; and is centred on a 400 by 700 m elliptical exposure of granodiorite stock that intrudes overlying metasedimentary Proterozoic Hyland Group and Devono-Missippian Keno Hill Quartzite formations. The Lynx project exhibits similar characteristics to Victoria Gold’s Nugget and Raven exploration projects.
The Lynx first demonstrated mineralization potential in the mid 1990’s with an encouraging preliminary drilling/trenching campaign, during the initial assessment of the Dublin Gulch Gold Camp; it received follow-up drilling in 2004, and has remained unexplored since. Significant historical intercepts from 1997 trenching and diamond drilling include:
|Trench ID||Length* (m)||Gold (g/t)|
|Hole ID||Length* (m)||Gold (g/t)|
Mineralization identified to date is concentrated along the contact between an igneous intrusion and surrounding country rock, similar to much of the mineralization elsewhere on the Dublin Gulch claim block; and within the PHT. An interpretation of the diamond drilling and trenching completed to date suggests an east-west strike to mineralization and limited soil sampling conducted to the east and west of the prospect suggests continuity of mineralization in both directions. Mineralization intersected in diamond drilling is open at depth and along strike to the east and west, and soil data indicate Au in soil > 30 ppb to the east and west of the prospect.
Multiple significant mineralized intersections of gold have been identified from the 2020 drilling campaign, including:
|Hole ID||From (m)||To (m)||Length* (m)||Gold (g/t)||Silver(g/t)|
*Note: Reported intersections are drilled intersections as true width are unknown at this time. Intervals may not match due to rounding.
Early-stage trench results are extremely encouraging, with two parallel trenches 385-m apart both ending in mineralization. Assay highlights from 2020 trenching include:
|Trench ID||From (m)||To (m)||Length* (m)||Gold (g/t)||Silver(g/t)|
2020 Exploration campaign consisted of:
1609 soils, Mapping, 720m of trenching, 594.36 m DDH and the establishment of an exploration Camp.
