The Yellowknife Greenstone Belt contains numerous Shear Zone-hosted gold deposits:

  • Giant Yellowknife Gold Mine - past production 8 million oz Au
  • Con Gold Mine - past production 6 million oz Au
  • Negus – Rycon Gold Mines - past production 0.9 million oz Au

  • Over 95% of the shear zones are not exposed, underlying lakes and swamps.
  • Trench results show potentially economic grades over potentially minable widths, including:

7.22 gpt gold over 6.0 m

2.79 gpt gold over 5.3 m
