Strategic Metals Ltd expands its Lance property in the Tombstone Gold Belt, Yukon
November 16, 2022 – Strategic Metals Ltd. (Strategic” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce that it has staked claims to significantly expanded its Lance property in central Yukon. The new claims nearly double the size of the property to 105.8 square kilometres.
The Lance property lies approximately mid-way between Snowline Gold Corp.’s exciting drill discovery at the Rogue Project and the prolific Keno Hill District, which contains silver mines that were recently purchased by Hecla Mining, the Eagle Gold Mine owned by Victoria Gold Corp. and the rapidly expanding AurMac deposit being explored by Banyan Gold Corp.
The Tombstone Gold Belt is becoming increasingly well-known for its intrusion-related deposits. It runs through central Yukon and extends into eastern Alaska, after being offset by post-mineralization movement on the Tintina Fault, as shown on Figure 1. Strategic has a very significant presence in Yukon portion of the belt with 15 wholly owned properties and NSR royalty holdings in another 7 properties. Lance and Mt Hinton, which adjoins Hecla’s claims in the Keno Hill District, are two of its key holdings in the belt.
The Lance property has only been lightly explored but is known to host a number of geological, geophysical and geochemical features that closely resemble those at the Rogue Project. These features include evidence of high-level intrusions, magnetic lows and soil geochemical anomalies for gold, arsenic, bismuth, tellurium and tungsten. Most of the property lies below 1400 m elevation so glacial transported soils are common and bedrock exposures are limited. Despite glacial dispersion, reconnaissance-scale soil geochemical results include several very strong gold values ranging between 100 and 8,300 ppb, as shown on Figure 2.
Technical information in this news release has been approved by Heather Burrell, P.Geo., a senior geologist with Archer, Cathro & Associates (1981) Limited and qualified person for the purpose of National Instrument 43-101.
