Important note: this page will be updated during the current mining season and the new properties will be added (we are publishing here only our properties where the gold has been already proven). Please be patient, we are very busy digging at this time. For the end of the season (October/November) we will have several more properties of different size, tested and ready to go. During the next winter we will apply for all the licenses necessary to mine them and by the next May (2016) a dozen of new properties will be available to be mined. If you’re interested in our project, you should read the chapter “Partnership?”.
– “Oz” (68 claims):
This huge property (1,760 acres), staked along the Big Creek, is located in the central part of the Yukon, between Mayo (60km SE) and Dawson City (125 km NW). Big Creek is a tributary of the Little South Klondike. The creek has never been previously mined, due to difficulty of accessing the area. Today it is reachable by a easy-drivable road. We performed a successful testing campaign on the property during August/September of last summer (2013). The results are visible under the chapter “REPORTS” of this web-site. The property has already water license and land use permit: a gold mine ready to go.
– “Val” (39 claims + 4 miles of lease ready to be converted into 44 claims):
This extensive property (1,408 acres) is located along 4 miles of the lower part of the famous Clear Creek (map 115P12), right beside the Yukon Highway (at km 469 from Whitehorse, 111km from Dawson City). The claims are easily accessible by paved road and by a secondary road (unpaved), parallel to Clear Creek. This road runs right through the property and is drivable by truck or by heavy equipment. During the last summer (2013) we performed a testing campaign along the creek and along the upper benches with positive results (wide distribution of fine gold). On the benches we found the remains of a paleo-channel (ancient riverbed). During summer of 2015 we will perform an extended drilling campaign, then the 2 leases will be converted into claims and water license will be applied. This mine site could be in production starting from 2016. The easy accessibility of this area will contribute to create a very appealing mining site.
– “Pan” (6 claims):
This is a small-size property (68.8 acres) staked on an ancient upper bench of the Klondike River, with chances for White Channel type of deposit: the bench in fact is showing different types of alluvial material. The property is located along the southern city limit of Dawson City and t’s accessible by road (10 min. from town). These claims are lying on the margin of an extended plateau (fantastic view on the Klondike Valley). We are testing the entire area, sampling several scattered sectors of our property. We found fine gold, sometime in appreciable quantity, deposited at different elevations (gravel-bar type of deposits). No coarse gold until this time. The search continues…
– “Tramonto” (2 discovery claims+ 3 regular claims + 5 bench claims):
Our latest discovery of a very high bench of pre-glacial origin, is making this medium size property (more than 200 acres located right along the Klondike highway, 45 km south of Dawson City) a potential excellent target . At this time we are drilling the bottom part and we will hopefully have enough time to test the very upper part of the property. We expect to show results by the end of October. As soon as the gold deposition will be fully proven, we will apply for all the licenses necessary to mine it.
note: we just finished to map the upper bench located at high elevation (622 meters). The extension is just perfect for a medium-size type of operation and now we are looking forward to test that gravel. We will keep you updated with our research.
– “Ra” (4 c0-discovery claims + 16 regular claims + 1 mile lease):
This is a medium/big-size property (209 hectares, 516 acres), located along the Twelve Mile Creek (tributary of the Sixtymile River). The area is historically known as one of the best gold producer of the Klondike, but some of these creeks revealed ‘patchy’ depositions (alternation between rich corners and dry areas) which makes them a challenging ground for the miners. We are currently working to test an extended upper bench that showed coarse gold during a testing campaign performed in the 80s. This bench could be very easy to mine, as there isn’t much overburden and the bedrock is shallow (<20 feet). This property is serviced by a good road and we will test it by the end of September and in case of good results we will prepare all the permits ready to mine for the next season (2016).
– “Rocca” (1 discovery claim + 4 regular claim):
Interesting medium size property (63 hectares, 154 acres) on Ontario Creek, tributary of Hunker Creek. This is an historical claim, staked already in 1897 and never been mined with heavy equipment. Gold has been proven but not properly evaluated. At this time we are testing the ground with an excavator and a sluice. Fine gold has been recovered but we are not in the main pay-streak yet. We will keep you update with the results of our research.
– “Stardust” (1 discovery claim + 2 regular claims):
Stardust has been staked on Golden Gulch, a little tributary of Eldorado Creek, right in the hart of the historical goldfield of Klondike. This gulch has been mined with dozer in the 70’s/80’s, until the boundary with Stardust property, which has never been mined with heavy equipment. Signs of past activities of hand digging are visible here and there in the upper part. The headwater of Golden Gulch starts from the historic “Violet” hard-rock mine, where free gold has been searched from quartz veins at the beginning of last century. Recent drilling campaigns revealed good content of gold in the rocks surrounding the area. We will test this property with an excavator during this summer of 2015 and let you know…
– “Eos” (1 discovery claim, 2 co-discovery claims, 30 regular claims + 2 miles of leases):
Historical big property (more than 400 hectares, almost 1,000 acres) located along California Creek and only hand-mined at the beginning of 1900 (after a famous stampede). Later abandoned for richer ground (at the time Bonanza and Eldorado were still literally loaded of placer gold). Since that time this creek has been neglected and sporadically tested close to its mouth. We found out that the better gold area is actually close to the upper part, where the old-timers were mining (right beside the Top of The World Highway). At this time we are actively testing the ground and we already obtained good results: fine and coarse gold is showing in our pans. The property is now serviced by three excellent roads, two to the top and one to the bottom of the claims. The ground is shallow and with a small coverage of overburden, fairly easy to strip (permafrost will be the only challenge). We are preparing the applications for the water license and the land use permits. By the next summer (2016) Eos property will be ready for mining!
