Great potential for further discoveries

Canadian exploration company Sitka Gold (TSXV SIG / WKN A2JG70) has already made great progress in exploring its RC Gold property in the Yukon, where it recently demonstrated an initial resource of more than 1.3 million ounces of gold. However, the potential of the property is still immense, as demonstrated, among other things, by the consistently strong drill results presented since the resource estimate was published. The Sitka team around CEO Cor Coe is now ensuring that this potential belongs entirely to the company and is now also acquiring 100% of the last two areas, which together make up the 386 square kilometer RC Gold property.

As has just been announced, the corresponding option agreements for the RC and BeeBop areas have been amended, as was recently done with the Barney Ridge and Clear Creek properties. RC and BeeBop adjoin Clear Creek to the east, where Sitka has defined the Blackjack and Eiger gold deposits.

Sitka has now completed all exploration work and payments required to date in respect of RC and BeeBop. Further exploration activities agreed for the future will not be required under the option agreement and the Company will only make final payments of $60,000 and $20,000 for RC and BeeBop, respectively, and issue 375,000 and 125,000 common shares, respectively, to earn 100% interest in the properties.

RC and BeeBop

RC and BeeBop form a contiguous claim block of 2,760 hectares, which includes the Big Creek Stock in particular. This is a 2 kilometer by 3 kilometer dioritic intrusive body that is part of the Clear Creek Intrusive Complex, where Sitka has already proven the aforementioned resource of 1.34 million ounces of gold in and around the Saddle and Eiger intrusives. The Saddle and Eiger Stocks are in turn associated with the Blackjack and Eiger intrusive-related gold deposits, which not only comprise the resource but remain open in all directions.

In comparison, the intrusion-related gold deposit targets at RC and BeeBop have seen only limited exploration work. This much is clear, however, they have gold mineralization analogous to that of the nearby Blackjack and Eiger gold deposits. Both RC and BeeBop are therefore promising targets for Sitka. The company will probably concentrate its future work on the western and southern parts of the claim group first, as these are accessible by road.

Great potential for further discoveries

And Sitka CEO Cor Coe points out that Big Creek is only one of nine (!) known intrusions associated with gold mineralization that occur on the RC Gold Project. Coe adds that Sika has already generated numerous intrusive-related gold deposit targets at RC and BeeBop that have similar characteristics to the Blackjack and Eiger gold deposits, which continue to grow. While Sitka will continue to focus primarily on expanding the existing resource in the Blackjack and Eiger area, it also looks forward to pursuing promising targets in other parts of the project area, he added.

Conclusion: Sitka Gold now has its Yukon project RC Gold completely under control and can benefit to 100% from future successes and developments. The results of the winter phase of the drilling planned for this year on the property should arrive in the near future and provide further information on the potential of RC Gold. A further 15,000 meters of additional diamond core drilling is also planned for this year. The chances are therefore good that the company will be able to significantly expand its existing resource in 2024. In addition, the hunt for new discoveries at the RC Gold project should provide further excitement.
