The acquisitions of these properties add a total of 60 claims to the overall land package, expanding the property size from 23,770 ha to 25,140 ha. The Williams Brook Gold property is part of the district-scale Triple Fault Gold Project, which was recently procured in 2020 in New Brunswick, Canada.

The Williams Brook Gold property was the focus of the 2020 Exploration Program.

These new land additions further consolidate our considerable ground position, increasing our overall footprint to more than 251 square kilometers which cover the highly prospective and underexplored Williams Brook property, but most importantly the major Rocky-Brook-Millstream Fault.

Triple Fault Gold Project

The Triple Fault Gold Project comprises three properties, called Portage Lake, Jonpol Gold, and Williams Brook Gold, currently spanning over 32,000 ha of conducive gold exploration land package. The Triple Fault Gold project is situated around 60 km west of Bathurst and the property has been cross-cut with the paved road.

At present, Puma Exploration is targeting its fieldwork on the Williams Brook Gold property, which is its first priority.

This property includes chosen drill results of 1.0 g/t over 23 m, 2.1 g/t gold (Au) over 9.0 m, and 11.2 g/t over 2.8 m gold occurrences that grade up to 50.8 g/t Au, 109.0 g/t Au, and 38.9 g/t Au in bedrock, various gold soil anomalies, and highly anomalous till samples with gold grains of up to 508 occurring across a region of about 12 by 3 km.

Only limited drilling and exploration work has been performed in the region, which was mapped to be a portion of the Dunnage Zone hosting significant gold occurrences and gold deposits in siluro-Devonian rocks and deemed to be a growing gold exploration and development district.
