White Gold, Yukon (Gold)
This page last updated Jan 28th, 2011

The White Gold claims are approximately 10km northeast of Underworld's (later acquired by Kinross) discovery of 103 meters of 3.4 g/t Au on May 26th, 2009. Ashburton's claims appear to host similar metasedimentary stratigraphy as the neighboring project as outlined in GSC mapping. Of note, the Yukon Minfile pinpoints an adit that was driven for 4.6 meters in 1902 on the White Gold property.

A geologic mapping and geochemical soil sampling program was completed, with analysis of the published regional geologic mapping suggesting that both areas are hosted by similarly aged metamorphic rocks to those at the Golden Saddle discovery. The program consisted of samples collected every 50 meters on lines spaced 300 meters apart, paralleling the dominant trend of the geology. Multiple gold soil anomalies, apparently paralleling mapped geology, were detected on three adjacent soil lines with analyses ranging up to 90 ppb Au.

The second phase of the soil sampling program, tripling the sampling density to 50-meter centers on lines spaced 100 meters apart in the areas of earlier anomalies, detected several new anomalies ranging up to 95 and 150 ppm Au and expanded the anomalous area to the north and south. A trend of gold anomalies ranging from 25 to 150 ppb Au has now been detected on most of ten parallel lines across some 1,100 meters of northerly slope. Individual lines have gold anomalies across as much as 150 meters of sampling, suggesting that multiple structures may be responsible for the soil anomalies. Following a detailed review of the latest results over the winter, a trenching program as well as a drill program is anticipated in the future.
