KGC is seeking out the original sources of the gold rush that made the Klondike region of the Yukon famous.

Initially, the explorer set out to unearth high grade, highly concentrated deposits.

Such a discovery has proved somewhat elusive, so far, but, KGC is presently having success finding lower grade but widespread gold mineralization across its property.

CEO Peter Tallman, who got involved around four years ago, told Proactive Investors that until then, there hadn’t really been any success looking for the origin of the alluvial gold in the Klondike.

“We tried to take a new approach to exploration and actually quickly realised that there never had been any systematic surveying across the district,” he explained.

After a number of successful field seasons – largely comprising of preliminary exploration and technical geoscience work – the company is increasingly confident that it has a material project on its hands.

“Basically, four years’ on, we have now done all the preliminary exploration plus all the basic geoscience – acquiring data – to support the concept that there is considerable gold in the bedrock and that there are multiple sources on the property,” Tallman said.

So far, KGC has discovered three such prospects, though it believes there’s potentially more to find.

Of the three prospects, the Lone Star Zone is the company’s focus right now.

KGC is presently working through the results from the 2018 drill programme, which return largely positive findings – low grade gold found across broad widths with high grade pockets of gold mixed in. It now anticipates ramping up its drilling ambitions over the next two years.

The aim is to prove enough gold to define a 2 million ounce deposit which will in turn establish an asset-backed valuation, and, hopefully attract the attention of the world’s largest gold miners – all of which are presently investing in the Yukon.

KGC isn’t the only one investing in the Yukon, far from it

Some US$1 billion has been invested into the region in the past 8 years and the vast majority of the money is targeting gold — four of the world’s five “top” gold producers have operations there — and the local authorities have committed $360 million  to invest in mining infrastructure.

“What we’re aiming to do is produce a resource that’s acceptable to a major — a resource that would be accretive to a major if they were to acquire us,” Tallman said.

“We want to dangle out there that we want to be acquired by one of the many major gold mining companies that are exploring the Yukon right now – basically all of them are there.

“Our neighbors, directly, are Goldcorp. Some of the biggest gold companies in the world are literally driving through our property.”

Goldcorp acquired Kaminak Gold Corp for US$520 million, equating to US$100 per ounce for the project’s 5 million ounces — and the mine is due online by 2021.

Klondike acreage in more detail

The company now holds a substantial portion of the historic mining areas, with 2,943 contiguous claims spanning a 557 square kilometer area. The project is 100% owned by the company.

Most of the company’s drilling to date has hit some amount of gold. Its initial exploration campaign targeted higher grade quartz zones and confirmed two new discoveries, with 14 of 19 holes encountering visible gold.

A year later, a follow up 51-hole program found more gold in quartz zones at both the Nugget and Lone Star Zones, but also identified broad areas without quartz containing disseminated gold. In 2017, a further 70-hole program unearthed more positive gold results targeting the disseminated style gold. The 2018 program comprised 87 drill holes also primarily targeting disseminated gold and the results so far have again been positive.

KGC will be drilling with greater scope over 2019 and 2020, with the maiden resource statement potentially following in 2021.

“Starting in 2019, we have a budget of $2.5 million, which will go to drilling, and that will be for another nine to ten thousand meters. We already have the [money] in hand, so we don’t need to finance that.”

“If the results that we have been getting continue, I would look at the opportunity of trying to bump the $2.5 million up to as much as $5 million for 2019 – that’s a decision that would be made in the Spring, at around April, and that will be contingent upon what the gold market is doing and appetite in the market for financing that.

“At that point, though, will be planning for a major escalation in 2020 so as much as $10 million to $15 million would be invested and that would basically get us 50,000+ meters of core drilling – that presupposes that we have outlined the Nugget target, the Lone Star target plus perhaps another one – though we don’t need more than those.”

Klondike snapshot:

Remainder of 2018 drill results still to come Budget secured for 2019 drilling, but there’s scope to expand In 2020, activity will step up further ahead of a possible resource estimate in 2021

The Vancouver-based miner said in a press release that it has encountered significant near-surface gold mineralization within the 600-meter extension to the Lone Star zone, effectively doubling its mineralized drilled length.

Of nine holes, one intersected 0.93 gram of gold per ton over 90.6 meters and another intersected 0.81 gram per ton over 79.7 meters.

These results from sectional drilling continue to show broad intervals of gold mineralization starting at or near surface, as well as the presence of gold mineralization at greater depths, according to Klondike.

Shares traded at C$0.20 in Friday’s Canadian trading and US$0.15 on the OTC Markets.

One hole intersected 1.02 grams per ton of gold over 91 meters starting from near the surface, the company said in a press release. Another hole intersected 0.80 gram per ton of gold over 36.26 meters from 94.5 meters downhole.

To date, results have been received and released from 51 of the 87 drill holes (9.5 kilometers) completed in 2018, according to Klondike.

A final report and lithologic and structural mapping results from across the Klondike district project are due soon.

Once received, the data will be integrated with final results of Klondike’s detailed mapping, as well as the products of district aerial geophysical surveying, soil geochemical surveying and prospecting.

Shares of Klondike gained C$0.02 to C$0.20 in Monday’s Canadian trading. They advanced US$0.01 to US$0.16 on the OTC market.

<![CDATA[News - Klondike Gold unveils encouraging drill assays from Lone Star Zone target in Yukon ]]> https://ca.proactiveinvestors.com/companies/news/208260/klondike-gold-unveils-encouraging-drill-assays-from-lone-star-zone-target-in-yukon-208260.html Klondike Gold Corp. (CVE:KG, OTC: KDKGF) has reported encouraging assays from a further 12 holes at its Lone Star Zone gold target in its Klondike District property in Yukon.

So far, final assays have been received and released from 42 of the 87 diamond drill holes completed in 2018.

"Exploration continues to affirm multiple local sources of bedrock gold mineralization which explain placer deposits exploited historically within the Klondike District," the firm said in a regulatory statement.

The 12 holes tested the central portion of the mineralized area and tested behind the main 100-meter wide band of gold mineralization adjacent to the fault.

Results from sectional drilling continue to show broad intervals of gold mineralization starting at or near the surface, as well as the presence of gold mineralization at greater depths.

Highlight drill assays included an interval of 20.20 m (meters), which assayed 0.29 g/t (grams per ton) of the yellow metal.

Another cut 2.35m (meters) at a grade of  2 g/t gold.

The Lone Star Zone is one of five targets, which were tested during this year's exploration program.

Additional results from Lone Star and other targets will be released as they are received, evaluated and incorporated into the evolving exploration model.

Klondike is focused on advancing the Lone Star Gold target at the confluence of Bonanza and Eldorado Creeks, within a district scale 557 square kilometres (sq km) property

Klondike Gold shares shed 5% to $0.19.
