Panorama
(bulk-tonnage gold)

PanoramaHighlights

  • Owned 100% by ATAC
  • Favourably located in the Dawson Mining District of west-central Yukon, 15 km east of Golden Predator's Brewery Creek deposit and former producing mine
  • Intrusion-related, bulk-tonnage gold prospect
  • Geological setting and geochemical signature similar to both Brewery Creek and Eagle Gold.
  • Road access within 6 km of the property
  • Strong gold-arsenic-in-soil geochemical anomaly centered on a quartz monzonite stock cutting hornefelsed shale
  • No trenching or drilling was completed at the most geochemically anomalous areas


Geology & Mineralization

Regional Geology

The Panorama property is situated within the Tintina Gold Belt about 25 km northeast of the Tintina Fault. The claims cover a mid-Cretaceous Tombstone Suite quartz monzonite intrusion that cuts Middle Paleozoic fine grained siltstone, shale and chert. Gold occurs in quartz-arsenopyrite-pyrite-pyrrhotite veins, quartz-actinolite veins in the intrusion and in hornfels altered sedimentary rocks around the intrusion.

Mineralization

A 800m by 1,800 m gold-arsenic soil geochemical anomaly occurs in the centre of the claims with values up to 1000 ppm arsenic and 880 ppb gold. Prospecting and limited heli-portable excavator trenching has uncovered quartz vein float that assayed up to 2.84 g/t gold and grab samples of altered sedimentary rock that have assayed up to 3.66 g/t gold. The area is relatively poorly exposed and the limited trenching and drilling that was carried out by previous operators did not adequately test the geochemical anomaly.
