The natural endowment of Canada’s British Columbia province, the Yukon and Northwest Territories continues to drive mineral exploration and development. Here are eight companies active in the region:
…Stratabound Minerals (TSXV: SB) is focused on its 84 sq. km Golden Culvert project within the Hyland Gold Belt in the Yukon. The belt is also host to Golden Predator’s (TSXV: GPY) 3 Aces project and Goldstrike Resources’ (TSXV: GSR) Plateau gold project.
Golden Culvert features a 24 km long mineralized trend; soil sampling has identified a 3 km long, 250 metre wide anomaly with gold grades in excess of 30 parts per billion within this trend.
Within this soil anomaly, exploration work completed to date has traced gold mineralization along a 570-metre strike. Mineralization at the site appears to consist of quartz vein and breccia structures that control the gold emplacement; gold may be localized in shoots within the veins.
