  • Five historic epithermal gold / silver and mercury mines are located within the Aibetsu Project area and includes the Tokusei mine, which produced 38,580 ounces of gold and 472,620 ounces of silver between 1930-1942¹.
  • The project area has had only limited exploration since the 1940’s which included mapping, soil sampling, and resistivity surveys by the Metal Mining Agency Japan (MMAJ) over the Tokusei mine area between 1998-2002. Soil and mapping data showed the vein system may have potential plunge extensions that are untested along strike to the northeast and southwest.
  • This work culminated in five diamond drill holes up to 700 m deep for a total of 3,400 m targeted mainly on Tokusei mine extensions.
  • The best results came from drill hole 13MAHB-2 of 0.95 m @ 69 g/t Au and 263 g/t Ag from a quartz vein intersected approximately 340 m below surface
  • The Company’s 2017 exploration program confirmed the presence of high-grade gold mineralization within and around the historic Tokusei mine workings and emphasized significant potential for extensions to the epithermal vein system at the Tokusei mine.
  • Drilling is warranted at the Tokusei and Motoyama prospects as well as low-impact exploration activities across the eastern part of the Aibetsu project.
