On Track With Discovery

Goldstrike Resources Ltd. Flagship Plateau Gold Discovery Hess River, Yukon




Independently confirmed new district scale gold system more than 25 kilometres long and 1,000 metres in vertical extent (Yellow Giant Trend) with tremendous untapped potential that remains open along strike and to depth. Rock grab samples up to 637.95 grams per tonne (18.66 ounces per ton); soil samples up to 26.82 grams per tonne. Gold is widespread in hydrothermal breccias, veins, stockworks, and disseminated in very strongly silicified and altered bedrock. Four major zones discovered to date include Goldstack (13.25 g/t Au over 17.5 m in core); Gold Dome (7.9 g/t Au over 9.03 m in core, up to 529.86 g/t (15.45 opt) Au in rock grab samples); Goldbank (up to 637.95 g/t (18.66 opt) Au in rock grab samples); Gold Rush zone (up to 26.82 g/t Au in soil, and 8.9 g/t Au in rock grab samples). These are original discoveries made by Goldstrike team in less than 15 weeks of cumulative field exploration. No record of any previous exploration on the property. Good access - four float-accessible lakes on and adjacent to property, and an airstrip 12 kilometres to south. 1,597 quartz mining claims covering approximately 352.5 square kilometres in the Mayo Mining District. All claims are located on Crown Land within the Traditional Territory of the Na Cho Nyak Dun First Nation, which has a settled land claim. Selected as one of only six projects to be showcased in the 2014 Media Tour sponsored by the Yukon Government. Written up by Northern Miner, Mining News North of 60, and Resource World in 2014. Yukoner Ron Stack received “Prospector of the Year” award for his discovery of the Goldbank zone. o e pert .

GOLDSTACK ZONE • High grade gold was discovered in outcrop by prospector Tom Morgan in 2011, near the west end of the Yellow Giant Trend. The surface exposure consists of two mineralized outcrops 40 metres apart, with rock grab samples up to 49.1 grams per tonne (1.43 ounces) per tonne gold, and channel samples up to 14.25 grams per tonne gold over 2.4 metres. • Numerous grains of coarse native gold have been found in surface outcrop and downhole, and the gold is indicated to be free milling. This is evident both visually and petrographically, and suggests that a large proportion of the gold is likely amenable to gravity separation. • Discovery Hole PSGS13-04 intersected shallow gold mineralization grading 4.05 grams per tonne over 28 metres, including 10.91 grams per tonne gold over 10 metres, remains open. • Hole PSGS15-01 was drilled as a 30 metre stepout to the southeast. It intersected 13.25 grams per tonne gold over 17.25 metres true width, including 20.42 grams grams per tonne gold over 11.20 metres, including 35.28 grams per tonne (1.03 ounces per tonne) gold over 5.7 metres, and remains open (News Release September 9, 2015). PSGS15-02 is a vertical hole from the same setup that intersected 2.35 grams per tonne gold over 40.5 metres (38.1 metres true width), including 8.10 grams per tonne over 10.8 metres, and 18.09 grams per tonne over 4.00 metres, and remains open.



GOLDSTACK ZONE • Hole PSGS15-03 was drilled in a downdip direction to confirm the consistency and continuity of the gold mineralization. The hole averaged 1.78 grams per tonne gold over its entire 94.5 metre length and remains open. An upper high grade section averaged 11.26 grams per tonne gold over 8 metres. • Drilling in 2015 showed that the gold mineralized zone is consistent down dip and widens at depth. The drill intersections indicate that the top of the mineralized zone plunges southeast at 20 degrees. • The gold is associated with arsenopyrite in extensive sections of stockwork and hydrothermal breccia in the axial zone of a large southeast-plunging fold, along the leading edge of a steep northeast-directed thrust fault (the Goldstack Trend). This structure has been traced for 4 kilometres along strike, and other surface showings with similar mineralization and structure along this trend remain to be followed up.

GOLD DOME • Seventeen kilometres east of Goldstack, numerous grab samples containing coarse visible gold assaying up to 529.86 grams per tonne (15.45 ounces per ton) gold have been found within a 9 square kilometre area along a broad, felsenmeer-covered ridge south of the Hess River. The gold is associated with extensive silica-albite alteration, quartz stockwork, and arsenopyrite, within a thick package of rhyolitic tuff and fine grained metasediments. • Eight exploratory holes with various azimuths and a dip of 45 degrees were drilled in 2015, to follow up Discovery Hole PSVG13-03 (7.6 grams per tonne gold over 9.03 metres – News Release 9 September, 2013) and other blind targets generated within a 450 by 450 metre area on Gold Dome. Seven of the eight holes intersected mineralized stockworks that remain open, and in addition, two of the holes (PSVG15-06 and PSVG15-08) contained multiple grains of coarse native gold (News Release July 21, 2015). • Hole PSVG15-06 was collared 63 metres south of Discovery Hole PSVG13-03 and was drilled to the north to test a blind, deep anomaly. It intersected four previously unknown gold mineralized zones downhole, including 9.09 grams per tonne gold over 1.5 metres near surface, and 12.65 grams per tonne gold over 0.5 metres within a 12.5 metre zone of mineralized stockwork and arsenopyrite at a downhole depth of 117 metres and remains open. The hole terminated in a previously untested area 30 metres north of Discovery Hole PSVG15-03, at a vertical depth of 93 metres below surface, and demonstrates strong upside potential for the discovery of additional new gold zones at depth within the largely unexplored 9 square kilometre Gold Dome area.



• Hole PSVG15-02 was collared 45 metres south-southeast of the Discovery Hole PSVG13-03 and drilled in a southwest direction that was previously unexplored. This hole intersected 3.48 grams per tonne gold over 2 metres at a downhole depth of 71.5 metres, including 6.45 grams per tonne gold over 1 metre, and remains open, again confirming the widespread distribution of gold on Gold Dome, both on surface and at depth, and demonstrating the strong potential for discovery of additional gold zones. Additional drilling is recommended in the next phase of exploration in order to trace the extent of the gold intersected in holes PSVG15-02, PSVG13-03, and PSVG15-06 that remain open. • Hole PSVG15-08 was collared 11 metres north of Discovery Hole PSVG13-03, and drilled in a downdip direction to test the continuity and consistency of the mineralization in Discovery Hole PSVG13-03. This hole intersected 18 metres of quartz stockwork with abundant arsenopyrite, and assayed 3.67 grams per tonne gold over 1 metre. It was drilled parallel to the southeast-plunging gold-mineralized structure, with an 11 metre offset, and intersected the halo around the main gold mineralization in the Discovery Hole (7.6 grams per tonne gold over 9.03 meters). Further drilling is required to delineate the full extent of the gold-mineralized structure confirmed in the Discovery Hole that remains open. • All Gold Dome exploratory drilling tested different targets at various azimuths as such the true widths of the gold mineralization intersected cannot be accurately estimated at this time. • Numerous shallow and deep targets on Gold Dome remain untested, including a large 800 by 100 metre soil anomaly that returned values up to 1,234.9 parts per billion (1.23 grams per tonne) gold, and are planned to be tested in the next phase of drilling.

GOLDBANK ZONE • Numerous grab samples containing visible gold or gold mineralization have been taken from bedrock in areas of stockwork and hydrothermal breccia along the 11 kilometre long Goldbank zone, and the zone remains open. • Eight new selected grab samples taken in 2015 contained visible gold, and returned 639.75 grams per tonne gold (18.66 ounces per ton), 287.71 grams per tonne gold (8.39 ounces per ton), 47.83 grams per tonne gold (1.40 ounces per ton), 35.91 grams per tonne gold (1.05 ounces per ton gold), 33.43 grams per tonne gold (0.98 ounces per ton gold), 16.74 grams per tonne gold, 11.50 grams per tonne gold, and 7.66 grams per tonne gold from metallics assays (News Release July 21, 2015). • On re-examination, several other samples that returned high gold assays in 2013 were also found to contain free native gold, which was previously unknown in the Goldbank area. These and many other strong gold targets identified in bedrock remain to be drill tested. • The discovery of free native gold on Goldbank is very significant, as it shows that the mineralogy of Gold Dome, Goldbank and Goldstack is the same, and demonstrates that all three zones are part of one district-scale gold system (the 25 kilometre Yellow Giant Trend). • Structures associated with high grade gold and arsenopyrite along the Goldbank and Ron Stack-Stack SW trends closely resemble gold-mineralized structures that have been intersected in Gold Dome and Goldstack drill holes.

On Track With Discovery


The Plateau North property (Gold Rush Zone) was initially staked as a Carlin target in metasediments, based on strong Au, Ag, Hg and Tl anomalies in silt (99 and 98 percentiles in a Yukon-wide dataset). Only three weeks of field exploration has been done on the property to date.

The property is underlain by clastic metasediments of the Lower Hyland Group (Proterozoic/Early Cambrian), including sandy and carbonaceous or calcareous shale, with 5% felsic metavolcanics, and minor limestone, felsic quartz-eye porphyry and basalt. The volcanics are rhyolitic tuffs with relict lapilli, crystals, and clasts up to 8 millimetres long, and contain up to 20% feldspar. The sediments are dominant, and the felsic volcanic package is ten times thinner than on the Plateau South property.

Goldstrike’s initial sampling recovered high grade gold in graphitic soil (26.82 grams per tonne gold) on the crest of a high glaciated ridge at 1700 metres elevation. The gold must have weathered in situ, because there is no possible downslope movement and no water at this location.

Further soil sampling returned highly anomalous soil along a strike length of 350 metres. The structure has been traced for 1,500 metres along strike and remains open. A total of 35 soil samples assayed over 100 parts per billion gold, including 11 samples that assayed over 1 gram per tonne gold.

A bedrock grab sample taken in the same area assayed 8.99 grams per tonne gold, and ten other bedrock grab samples assayed over 1 gram per tonne, including a chip sample that assayed 5.56 grams per tonne over 1 metre, and another with 1.89 grams per tonne over 0.5 metres.

Overturned fold and thrust structures resemble those that control gold mineralization on the Plateau South property, but folds appear to plunge to the southwest, indicating a different structural domain. This is thought to be due to rotation on the Hess River sole thrust. Soil geochemistry and ground magnetics show patterns that are consistent with macroscopic southwest-plunging folds.

Gold extends the entire length of the ridge down to the Hess River, over a strike length of more than 12 kilometres. It is believed to be part of the same very large gold system as Plateau South. Gold is inferred to have been transported northeast along a splay coming off the Hess River fault.

Strong silicification shown on an ASTER satellite image is inferred to be a thrust fault plane outcropping along the northwest side of the ridge. This implies that the gold mineralization was deposited in the deformed upper plate of the thrust, similar to what is seen at Gold Dome and at Goldstack.

Plateau North is Goldstrike’s original discovery in silty metasediments north of the river. Felsic volcanics have been mapped on the property, but are ten times thinner than on the Plateau South property. Mineralization appears to be controlled by a splay off the Hess River thrust fault, and appears to be part of the same very large gold system. Plateau North has had only 3 weeks of field exploration to date.


PLATEAU NORTH GOLD RUSH ZONE Gold mineralized structures north of the Hess River appear to plunge SW in contrast to SE plunging structures on the Plateau South property. This is, thought to be due to rotational movement on the Hess River thrust. The same style of overturned folding and thrusting has been documented on both properties.

NI 43-101 DISCLOSURE Sample analysis and assaying for all of Goldstrike's projects have been conducted by Acme Analytical Laboratories Ltd in Vancouver, BC, which is ISO 9001 accredited. Soil samples are dried at 60C, and 100 grams is sieved to -80 mesh. A 15 gram sample split is then leached in aqua regia at 95 degrees C, and analyzed by a 36-element ICP package that includes semi-quantitative gold. Rock samples are crushed to 80% -10 mesh, and a 250 gram sample split is pulverized to 85% -200 mesh. 50 gram charges are then assayed for gold using fire assay fusion and ICP-ES finish with a lower detection limit of 2 ppb, and an upper detection limit of 10 ppm Au. In addition, 0.5 mg charges are digested by modified 1:1:1 aqua regia (HCl-HNO3-H20) and analyzed by 36-element ICP-MS that also includes semi-quantitative gold with a lower detection limit of 0.5 ppb Au and an upper detection limit of 100 ppm Au. Selected samples are subjected to 500 gram metallics fire assays, for which the plus fraction is finished gravimetrically and the minus fraction is finished with AA. Rigorous procedures are in place regarding sample collection, chain of custody and data entry. Certified assay standards, duplicate samples and blanks are routinely inserted into the sample stream to ensure integrity of the assay process. Note: Grab samples are selective by nature, and are unlikely to represent average grades on the property.

(now Senior Mining Analyst at Raymond James), and was set up to focus on northern properties that had potential for the discovery of world class gold deposits. The Prime Properties Syndicate specialized in project generation and identified a number of original gold prospects that were optioned to public companies, including the original Coffee Creek claim block that now forms the nucleus of the Kaminak Supremo zone gold discovery. The Coffee Creek property was originally optioned to Prospector International by the Syndicate, and Prospector obtained very encouraging results from initial geochemical grid soil surveys, but that was in 2000 and market conditions at the time made it difficult to fund gold exploration projects. Accordingly, the Coffee Creek claims were permitted to lapse, and remained dormant until the ground was later staked by Shawn Ryan and optioned to Kaminak. Bill Chornobay is a firm believer in the resource potential of the Yukon, and his practical approach and vision have a proven track record of success. 54
