The 100% owned Eureka Dome Property, located approximately 55 kilometres north of Kinross' White Gold discovery, consists of 156 quartz claims. The property covers a 33 square kilometer area which is road accessible from Dawson City.
Placer gold occurrences have been reported in most creeks draining the property and geochemical anomalies suggest the presence of a high level epithermal style alteration system. Anomalous arsenic (3000 ppb) and mercury (17 ppm) occur within silicified and brecciated rocks.
Prior workers reported breccia float samples grading to 14 grams/tonne gold, and silt samples running to 900 ppb on immediately adjacent properties. Reconnaissance sampling by Pacific Ridge has defined a gold-mercury-molybdenum-antimony soil anomaly that requires detail follow-up sampling.
Soil sampling over a portion of the headwaters of Eureka Creek in 2016 produced scattered anomalous gold values. This sampling will be expanded in 2017 in an effort to discover the source of the Eureka Creek placer gold.
