The Golden Triangle Gold Camp Page. I'll abbreviate it as GTBC
The logo image pairing golden triangles... and blue sky...
The Intro post is here...
From that, I should create a short list of "emerging advantages"... Missing from the intro post... is that the accelerating retreat of the glaciers in B.C.'s western mountains is exposing large swaths of clean rock... some portions of which are rich in mineral endowments that have been hidden until now. Roads and power are finally reaching the big name camps... opening large new regions to exploration that happen to have the benefit of roads and power lines passing through them, or located near by.
I'll be lax on the definition, and include others in B.C. that are worth including...
I'm noting, right off... that the historical references, from below... are badly outdated as a very high proportion of the juniors that were extant back in 2019 have failed to survive from 2020 into 2022. Among those that do still exist, without having been shelled out and re-treaded as NFT companies... the survivors appear to be narrowly re-focused on other projects... not mentioning their former (?) GTBC interests on their websites or in PR, at all. It's creates a lot of work that needs to be done in tracking down their former projects to see who owns them now...
Not too surprising, perhaps, that it appears the early enthusiasm of "finding a bottom" back in 2018... impacted the GTBC more than other camps. It clearly resulted in a lot of less than capable operators buying up "name plates" on leases for moose pasture they were ill equipped to hold, much less explore. A couple of others have made "finds" that are of such a tenuous nature and scale... that even if they do represent "a tip of the iceberg"... the ice berg will likely remain undiscovered for lack of effort. I'll try to sort out the list to focus on those with actual potential... both geologic... and in the organizational / professional ability to sustain focus and develop capacity...
A couple of well known elephants:
Eskay Creek – past producer: from 1994 to 2008 yielded 3.3 million ounces of gold and 160 million ounces of silver at average grades of 45 g/t Au and 2,224 g/t Ag,
Brucejack – a new mine with high-grade reserves of 8.7 million ounces of gold.
KSM – over 106 million ounces in gold resources makes it one of the worlds largest undeveloped gold deposits, paired with silver and moly values, but, is said to have more value in copper than it does in gold, with 38.8Moz of gold and 10.2Blb copper in reserves. Plans support a mine life exceeding 40 years.
Red Chris – resources of 13 billion pounds of copper, almost 20 million ounces of gold, and 64 million ounces of silver. A 70% stake in Red Chris sold recently to Australia’s Newcrest Mining Limited (NCM.ASX) for US$806.5 million in cash.
Schaft Creek – aptly named, given its amateurish exploration history, and maybe more of a water buffalo than an elephant... yet has proven and probable of 5.6 billion pounds of copper, 6 million ounces of gold, 372 million pounds of molybdenum, and 52 million ounces of silver.
