The Newmont Lake property consists of 436 sq. km in the heart of the Golden Triangle mining district of British Columbia. Bordering projects such as Galore Creek (~12 billion pounds Cu, 10.7 million ounces Au, 183.1 million ounces Ag – NovaGold) Shaft Creek (~5.6 billion pounds Cu, 5.8 million ounces Au, 51.7 million ounces Ag, 363.5 million pounds Mo – Copper Fox), the property highlights bonified showings such as Burgundy Ridge, Ken Zone, Camp, RNT and an inferred resource at the Northwest Zone. The Newmont Lake property bolsters several styles of mineralization including high-grade Au, Cu-Au porphyry and volcanogenic massive sulphide (VMS). Recent glacier recession is exposing new high-grade discoveries such as Burgundy Ridge that are catching the attention of geologists and putting the property into a whole new perspective. With massive untapped potential, Newmont Lake is geared for robust exploration activity and significant discovery.
In 2018 a late season ~800m RC drilling program was carried out to test the never before drilled Burgundy Ridge prospect and expand on previous work at the Northwest Zone. Eager crews battled the harsh climate of late fall/early winter and completed the program successfully without incident; a testament to HEG & Associates rigorous Health & Safety protocol.
