About the Wenasaga Gold Property

The Wenasaga gold property is located 30 km northeast of Ear Falls and 55 km southeast of Red Lake. The property is located on a crustal fault structure1 and is on strike with Kinross’ Dixie project, 35km to the west. The Dixie Project hosts the LP Fault Zone, a 4.6 km long, drill-tested zone containing 16 highly continuous bulk mineralized domains and 5 high-grade mineralized domains with attractive grades and true thickness.2 The Wenasaga gold property contains a regional geology similar to that of the Dixie project, underlain by felsic intrusive and metasedimentary rocks to the south, with intermediate felsic to mafic metavolcanic rocks to the north. Historical drilling to the west and strike along the crustal fault structure on the Wenasaga gold property intersected strongly deformed, chlorite and carbonate altered green basic metavolcanic rocks.3 Trillium’s exploration programs will focus on delineating the fault structure that crosses the Wenasaga gold property.
