TRAILBREAKER Resources LTD
A STRONG PORPHYRY GOLD TARGET
History of the Swan Zone
Due to the success of the first pass results at the Atsutla Gold Project in 2020, Trailbreaker staked a historical molybdenum-copper porphyry prospect discovered in the late 1960s and explored periodically since then. Despite more than 500 soil and surface rock samples and almost 1,000 meters of shallow diamond drilling, no geochemical analysis for gold was ever completed. Historical geological mapping and drill hole logging indicate a complex intrusive system, comprising widespread quartz-feldspar porphyritic monzonite cut by a variety of felsic and mafic dikes. Molybdenite-pyrite mineralization is closely associated with sheeted quartz veins, quartz stockwork and breccia zones. The historical drilling at Swan intersected broad, low to mid-grade molybdenite mineralization, returning up to 0.06% Mo over 73 metres, as well as several significant silver intercepts including >26 g/t Ag over 3 meters.
2021 Exploration at the Swan Zone
The 2021 phase 1 program at Swan involved gridded soil sampling and prospecting. The bulk of the samples were taken on a large, gossanous mountain immediately east of the historical drill holes. Assay results from the soil sampling have revealed a ~900m x 700m Au-As-Ag-Sb-Cu-Mo-Pb soil anomaly, with soil samples assaying up to 406 ppb Au. The anomaly occurs within a leucogranite-porphyry unit of the Upper Cretaceous Glundebery Batholith. Limited rock sampling from Phase 1 yielded assays up to 3.17 g/t Au. Gold typically occurs with arsenopyrite mineralization and epithermal quartz veining. Phase 2 involved one day of follow-up work in this area and uncovered significant arsenopyrite mineralization in talus float (assays pending).
