North American Intercepts – 2

I did some more digging into the drilling data. I wanted to create a more definitive list of prospects before I start to looking into more details.

First off, what do these charts show? They show drill results from properties located in North America. The drilling occurred in 2018 and the minimum interval width is 5 meters. Why 5 meters? While I’m sure that this will eliminate a lot of interesting data from some properties, I want to focus on robust results that are consistent over mineable intervals. Narrow vein mining is fine. Too complex for me though… Also, these are exploration/development properties. No producers.

The chart above shows all of the North American exploration results, grouped by property and coloured by gold grade * interval meters. If we whittle these down to grade meter levels > than 400 g/m than the image shrinks to:

Ok, this was helpful. Now we have some properties to look at. So what ones stand out? 

  • Railroad Pinion – Gold Standard Ventures Corp
  • Windfall Lake – Osisko
  • Madsen – Pure Gold
  • Cariboo – Barkerville
  • Kiena – West Dome
  • Cheechoo – Quebec Precious Metals Corp
  • Dixie Lake – Nemont and ???
  • Tatogga – GT Gold
  • Goldlund – First Mining

Some of these are familiar names, some not so much. This seems like a good list to start digging into. In my next post I’ll start investigating Railroad Pinion.
