Eldridge Property Summary

The Eldridge property is located in the Trans-Hudson Corridor with host rocks similar to SSR Mining’s Santoy mine and other orogenic gold and VMS projects in the area. The property has seen very little historical exploration activity despite recognition of potential host rocks and structures by regional government geological surveys.

In 2021, Eagle Plains engaged TerraLogic Exploration Services to conduct preliminary geochemical and geophysical studies on the property which resulted in the recognition of highly anomalous gold trends. The 2021 field program generated a total of 59 lake sediment samples which were analyzed for gold and base metals, and 7 till samples which were collected from strategic locations under the ice of geological lineaments and /or prospective regional magnets. Encouraging results on lake sediments yielded gold grades between 0.1 and 9.7 ppb with 12 samples returning at least twice the background. The till results were also very encouraging, with an improved gold grain count of 30 grains and a normalized estimated gold grade of 30 ppb Au.

Follow-up exploration work is recommended for the property.
