Warrior Gold Inc.
Gold Exploration in Kirkland Lake, Ontario
Warrior Gold is a Canadian exploration company that owns the Goodfish-Kirana Property (34 km²) located five kilometers from the town of Kirkland Lake, Ontario. The Property is located in the historic and prolific Kirkland Lake Gold Camp of the Abitibi Greenstone Belt, one of the world’s richest and highest-grade greenstone belts with over 200 million ounces of gold produced to date, of which +25 million ounces have been produced in the Kirkland Lake camp.
The Company holds a 100% interest in the Goodfish-Kirana Property, a 11.5 km x 3 km (3,859 ha) land package that contains three major structural trends, numerous high-grade gold showings and historical underground workings.
Warrior Gold’s Goodfish-Kirana Property
Warrior Gold holds a large contiguous land package in the western part of the Abitibi Greenstone Belt, 5 km north of the town of Kirkland Lake. The property consists of a combination of 217 legacy claims (single cell/boundary cell) and 28 patented claims. Current assessment credits put the land in good standing to 2033. The property has never been fully explored because of the historical fragmented land ownership.
Exploration and mining work dates back to the early 1900s when high-grade gold was first discovered on the Goodfish-Kirana Property by hand digging exploration pits and mine shafts. The Kirana Kirkland Mine, last worked in the late 1930s contains historical high grades of between 30 g/t and 145 g/t gold. The Goodfish patents contain two historical mine shafts (1930s) that were hand dug to 300 ft and 600 ft with 1000 ft of lateral workings. Historical records indicate that a half rail car of ore was taken to Cobalt that graded 1.25 oz/tonne.
Kirkland Lake Gold Camp
Geologically, the Kirkland Lake Gold Camp is a favourable gold exploration area that contains major and regional structural breaks that host world-class high-grade gold deposits. Operationally, the Kirkland Lake Gold Camp is in an ideal location due to its long mining history, a skilled local work force, supportive First Nations, year-round ease of access via the local airport, three main highways and truck and ATV accessible bush roads. The region hosts abundant water and is well supplied with power. Nearest neighbours include Kirkland Lake Gold Mines and Agnico Eagle.
