PLUTO

ABOUT

  • Pluto is in the Kluane region, approximately 100km west of Carmacks.
  • The property is large, 23km at its widest point, and includes the Venus claims along the northwestern edge.
  • Almost 16,000 soil samples were taken between 2011 and 2012 by Ryan Gold Corp., identifying four target zones (Charon, Styx, Nyx and Hydra).
  • StrikePoint work in 2017 included 1,294m of RAB drilling on the Charon and Hydra targets, and also identified the newly discovered Cerberus Zone to the east.
  • Initial results suggest mineralization is occurring across several lithologies (shallow dipping schists and limestones with metavolcanic dykes) based around Au-Cu-Ag ores.
  • Comstock QV Project: Gold hosted in quartz-breccias associated metavolcanic rocks with anomalous Ag-Bi-Te. (Quoted from Comstock website)
  • White Gold Corp Gold hosted in quartz flooded breccias and stockwork veins. Measured and indicated resources range from 840,000 to 1,000,000 ounces of gold grading from 2.7 to 3.19g/t. (Quoted from White Gold Corp website)
  • Goldcorp Coffee Project: Gold hosted breccia structures or metavolcanic dykeswith quartz Indicated resources of 52.4 million tonnes at an average grade of 1.68g/t Au, containing 2.82 million ounces of gold. (Quoted from Goldcorp website)
  • Western Copper Casino Project: Copper-Gold porphyry system with mineralization within fractured breccias and wall rocks. Reserves of 4.5 billion lbs copper and 8.9 million ounces of gold.
  • StrikePoint Gold Pluto Project: Early stage indicates a copper-gold-silver system associated with quartz stockwork and breccias forming along contacts with metavolcanic dykes. associated Bi-Te geochemistry.

Ancient Hotspot

  • The Pluto property is one of the largest in the portfolio, being some 35km x 25km in size.
  • Property has completed early stage exploration, including soils, mapping and geophysics.
  • Airborne geophysics identified property-scale arcuate features in the northeastern portion of the property, aligning with volcanic units in the field. Could these be ring dykes?
  • There is a greater theory of the existence of the ‘Carmacks Caldera’, a crater formed as the North American plate drifted over the Yellowstone hotspot.
  • Mineralization associated with skarn layers that appear to be passing through the topography.
  • Drill ready to test extent of skarn under the hilltops.
  • A total of 15,908 soils sampleas were collected over the property, with the strongest anomaly in the northeast corner.
  • The anomalies are roughly aligned with topography, in bands associating with carbonate skarn geology in the field.
  • The highest grade soil sample from the entire Ryan Gold program was collected here, at 15.43 g/t Au. Grab samples from the same area included 7.11 g/t Au.
  • In total, five anomalous zones have been identified, covering an area of 41 km2.
  • Neighbouring properties with similar geology include Klaza (Rockhaven Resources – 45km to northeast)
  • Inferred mineral resource estimate including 9.5Mt grading 4.48g/t Au, 89.02g/t Ag, 0.75% Pb and 0.95% Zn in a carbonate skarn system.
