Gemini Lithium Brine Project, South-Central Nevada
Eureka owns a 50% interest in this project located approximately 40 km (26 miles) from Silver Peak, North America's only producing lithium mine. It is in a similar geological setting to the Clayton Valley and recent geophysical work has outlined conductive zones interpreted as brine horizons at Gemini, which will be tested by drilling expected to commence in late 2016 or early 2017. Advantage Lithium Corp. (TSXV: AAL, "Advantage") has entered into an option agreement to earn a 50% interest in Gemini from Nevada Sunrise Gold Corp.
Luxor Project Yukon Territory
Luxor is located in the White Gold area in the Dawson Range Gold Belt of the western Yukon, a district of major porphyry, breccia and vein occurrences in a very active area of the Yukon Territory. Neighboring properties include the Coffee deposit recently acquired by Goldcorp; Western Copper and Gold Corporation's Casino deposit and Independence Gold projects. The Project is accessed via a well-maintained Territorial gravel road from Dawson City.
Placer gold mining in the Klondike area has been active since the late 1890's Yukon Gold Rush. Bedrock exploration commenced in the area in the 1970s, with the development of the Casino property.
FG (formerly Frasergold) Project, Cariboo Gold District, BC
The project is located at the headwaters of the Horsefly River, 50km east of Horsefly, BC. Over $15.0 million of exploration work has been completed on this project, establishing a Measured and Indicated resource of 376,000 ounces of gold at an average grade of 0.776 g/t (using a 0.5 g/t cut-off), and an Inferred resource of 634,900 ounces of gold at an average grade of 0.718 g/t (using a 0.5 g/t cut-off). Mineralization has been outlined over a 3 km strike length, and additional mineralization could extend along an interpreted 10 km strike length. Further details on the gold resource can be found in "NI 43-101 Technical Report, Frasergold Exploration Project, Cariboo Mining Division, dated July 27, 2015" available on SEDAR or at the Company's website. Canarc Resource Corp (TSX CCM) has an option to earn a 75% interest in the FG Project.
Gold Creek Project, Cariboo Gold District, BC
The project is located 2 km north of the Village of Likely, BC. Gold occurs in the same Mesozoic sedimentary package as at Spanish Mountain and the Company's FG property. There are numerous soil anomalies on the property over a 12 km strike length. Much of the property is covered by overburden and remains virtually unexplored. Limited percussion drilling was completed in the 1980s, with anomalous values of gold up to 1.1g/t reported over a hole length of 1.5 m.
