The Kiyuk Lake Gold Property is located in Nunavut, 50km north of the border with Manitoba and 350km west of Arviat.
Gold mineralization is hosted in Proterozoic sedimentary rocks of the 2.45 to 1.82Ga Hurwitz and Kiyuk groups which unconformably overlie the Archean basement. The continental to shallow marine siliciclastic, carbonates and rare volcanic rocks that make up this succession are thought to represent an intracratonic basin (Aspler et al. 2002). At Kiyuk Lake, the predominantly sedimentary succession represents a structural ‘basin’ that formed as a result of infolding of Proterozoic and Archean rocks during the Trans Hudson Orogen (1.9-1.76 Ga). Faulting and folding of the rocks on the Property are also thought to be related to this event. Proterozoic magmatism in the region occurred in two pulses: 1)monzogranites of the Hudson Suite emplaced within the upper crust and associated rhyolite erupted on the surface from 1765 to 1750ma (van Breeman et al., 2005). It is postulated that this later magmatic event was the driving process responsible for gold mineralization, although the timing of alteration and gold mineralization has not been constrained.
Gold mineralization at Kiyuk Lake is most similar to reduced intrusion related gold (RIRG) or iron-oxide-copper-gold (IOCG) deposit models. Mineralization is associated with pyrrhotite, pyrite, arsenopyrite, and magnetite (+/- hematite). The mineralizing event is accompanied by sodic and calcic alteration which occurs as veins and breccia of albite-carbonate-actinolite-quartz ± scapolite ± tourmaline. In areas of intense alteration the host rock is bleached and lack primary textures. Au element associations include As, Bi, Te, W, Ag, Co, Ni and sporadically U. There is a lack of widespread quartz veining or silicification. At Rusty most of the mineralization is hosted by breccia with albite, carbonate actinolite and pyrrhotite as shown here.
Gold was first discovered in 1991 by prospectors working for Comaplex Minerals which was following up anomalous arsenic in lake sediment samples from a survey conducted by the Geological Survey of Canada in 1976. They found multiple occurrences of gold bearing boulders assaying up to 36.97 g/t Au. The first drilling campaign was completed by Newmont in 2008 and included 14 diamond drill holes totalling 2331.4m. Evolving Gold and more recently Prosperity Goldfields Corp. have conducted three successive core drill programs, the most recent ending in April 2013. Since Newmont, 46 core holes for 9523 m have been completed at seven different showings.
The Rusty target is the most promising zone of mineralization discovered to date. In addition to prospecting and mapping, airborne magnetics and regional and grid till sampling have been completed on the property. Ground magnetics has also been completed over select areas to better define drill targets.

Cache Exploration Signs Letter of Intent to Acquire Precious Metals Project in Golden Triangle, British Columbia
March 16, 2021 - TheNewswire - Vancouver, Canada - Cache Exploration Inc. (the "Company" or "Cache") (TSXV:CAY) (OTC:CEXPF) is pleased to announce that the Company has signed a letter of intent ("LOI") to acquire a 100% option on the Marmot Precious Metals Project ("Marmot" the "Property" or the "Project") located in the Golden Triangle British Columbia, Canada and held by Granby Gold Corp ("Granby"), an arms-length private company.
The 4049 hectare Project is located roughly six kilometres from the town of Stewart, British Columbia in the southeast part of a mineral-rich belt of Stikine terrane rocks that lies along the eastern flank of the Coast Mountains. The belt lies between the Iskut and Kitsault-Anyox areas and is centred on the town of Stewart, British Columbia.
Both the Unuk River and Salmon River Members of the Lower to MiddIe Jurassic Hazelton Group are present on the Property. Voluminous resistant volcanic and associated volcaniclastic strata predominate in the area. The youngest volcanic members are bimodal, consisting mainly of basalt and rhyolite. Middle to Upper Jurassic Bowser Lake Group clastic rocks that conformably overlie the Hazelton Group may also be present.
The Eskay Creek mine of Skeena Resources Ltd. (formerly of Barrick Gold Corporation) is an extremely rich and pro-fit-able Au-Ag deposit near the northern end of the belt. The Eskay Creek deposit is interpreted to have formed in an environment transitional between subaqueous hot springs and exhalative volcanogenic massive sulfide (VMS), and the geologic setting for the deposits similar to that of the Property. 'Transitional' Eskay Creek-type deposits are models for exploration on the Property.
