In 2020, Goldseek Resources acquired the Southern Arm Property on the Detour Gold Trend. The detour belt has hosted some world-class mines and deposits which include:

1. Fenelon (Wallbridge Mining Company Limited): 2018 – 2019 bulk sampling provided 33,233 tonnes at 18.49g/t Au. 100 – 120,000 meters of expansion drilling planned for 2020. (Source Wallbridge Website)

2. Martiniere & Bug Lake Gold Zones (Balmoral Resources): “In March of 2018 Balmoral published an initial resource estimate for the Martiniere Gold System on the property which outlined 591,000 ounces in the indicated resource category and an additional 54,000 ounces in the inferred Category.

3. Detour Lake Mine (Kirkland Lake Gold): The Detour Lake mine hosts gold reserves of 15.61 million ounces of gold.

Historical Work on the Property

Numerous EM anomalies have been reported over the Bapst Fault(17). Public reporting indicates that conductor anomalies are located on the property(16), such as VTEM targets(6). The major anomalous zones are oriented NW-SE and have associations with the magnetic anomalies. According to the detailed resistivity depth imaging, the top of the EM response sources varies in depth from about 50m-500m deep.

Eleven holes were drilled on the property from 1993 to 1995, mainly to test magnetic anomalies. Most of them intersected disseminated Au-Cu-Zn sulfides (pyrrhotite, chalcopyrite, pyrite)(9-13) but returned low values of these metals. Mineralization appears to be located in an exhalite horizon or dacitic/basaltic rocks.

A full review of the historical work conducted on the Property will be done, including the review of historical results from drill holes and statistical treatment of the available geochemical data.
