Details

Hinterland holds a 100% interest in the 40-claim (2,051-hectare) Sakami gold project located 85 kilometres southeast of Radisson in the Eeyou Istchee-James Bay area of Quebec. To access the property it is 12 kilometres by boat on Sakami Lake from a put-in on the all-weather Trans-Taiga road. 

The south boundary of the property is approximately 0.9 kilometres north of the Sakami Apple property where on-going drilling at the “La Pointe” or “025” zone has most recently intersected (Canadian Strategic Metals Inc. press release, February 8, 2016): 

  • 4.94gpt Au over 21.05m, including 6.35gpt Au over 10.55m (PT-16-92);
  • 4.01gpt Au over 22.6m, including 7.21gpt Au over 7.00m (PT-13-67);
  • 6.86gpt Au over 9.60m, including 9.49gpt Au over 6.50m (PT-15-87); and
  • 2.51gpt au over 48.20m, including 6.93gpt Au over 12.00m (PT-14-79). 

Hinterland’s Sakami claims are underlain mainly by basalt meta-volcanic rocks in contact with tonalite intrusive rocks similar to the Sakami Apple property, and cover a 5.5 kilometre segment of the north-trending Opinaca-La Grande contact zone.  There is very little previous work documented within the claim block.

Next Steps

It is anticipated that the Company will complete line-cutting and geophysical, prospecting, mapping and sampling surveys over the Sakami claims in 2017 at an approximate cost of $25,000 subject to successful financing. Hinterland is actively seeking a joint venture partner for this project due to its relatively remote location.
