Exploration Highlights

  • Exploration currently planned for 26 different projects in BC and SK

  • 13 of the projects will be entirely funded by option partners

  • Saskatchewan programs will focus on uranium exploration around Uranium City and southern Athabasca Basin

  • British Columbia programs will focus on Cu-Au porphyry and epithermal-type deposits in world-class porphyry districts

Partner funded programs are planned on 13 projects in 2024 with a major focus on uranium exploration in Northern Saskatchewan. Xcite Resources Inc. is planning for ground exploration and property assessments at 6 Uranium City area projects (Beaver River, Black Bay, Don Lake, Gulch, Lorado, Smitty) investigating Beaverlodge-type, unconformity-type and basement-hosted uranium mineralization. Refined Energy Corp. is planning an airborne MT geophysical survey and geophysical interpretation of historical data sets at the Dufferin West and Dufferin North projects, investigating for unconformity-type uranium mineralization in the southern Athabasca Basin.

Internal generative exploration funded by Eagle Plains will have a major focus on Cu-Au porphyry and epithermal targets in central and northern BC including airborne magnetic and radiometric geophysical surveys at the Theory and Gold Mountain properties (Toodoggone Mining District, Stikine Terrane) and geochemical surveying including gold grain analysis, till geochemistry and prospecting at the Mount Polley West project (Caribou Mining District, Quesnellia Terrane).

Exploration is being conducted and managed by Terralogic Exploration Inc. of Cranbrook, BC. Field crews have recently completed programs at the Kidd-Star Pb-Zn-Ag Sedimentary Exhalative ("Sedex") prospect (mapping, geochemical survey), Mount Polley West Cu-Au Porphyry prospect (prospecting, geochemical survey), Cook structurally controlled Au prospect (prospecting, mapping), Pine Channel/Shasko unconformity U and structurally controlled Au prospect (Airborne VTEM Plus geophysics), and the Donna intrusion related Au-Ag prospect (mapping, geochemical survey). Analytical and geophysical results are pending for all completed projects.

The presented 2024 exploration overview schedule and proposed work is subject to change.
