There’s a new gold explorer in the Red Lake camp.
Vancouver’s Dixie Gold announced Dec. 31 that it’s acquired “a district-scale exploration project” with gold and base metal potential in the hot bed of exploration activity, south of Red Lake.
The company’s land package covers 21,258 hectares (52,507 acres) and 1,044 mining claims, making Dixie one of the largest claim owners in the district.
The property is situated just north of Great Bear Resources and BTU Metals’ exploration projects.
The company revealed little else on the acquisition or its upcoming exploration plans except to say more information will be provided in the coming weeks on its website.
Dixie Gold was previously known as Clean Commodities Corp. before changing its name last October.
The company has a roster of cobalt, lithium, and uranium properties in Saskatchewan, Northwest Territories, Nunavut and Quebec, and is exploring for gold in the Abitibi region of western Quebec.
“Our new project successfully positions Dixie Gold as a significant participant in one of Canada’s newest exploration camps,” said Ryan Kait, the company’s chairman-CEO.
”Dixie Gold has a well-funded treasury and we are looking forward to commencing gold and VMS (volcanogenic massive sulfide) exploration work at our new project in the Dixie district during 2020.”
