Aben Resources Ltd, a Canadian gold exploration company, reports that exploration in the Red Lake area has, yet again, started as the fires have abated.

Consequently, the airborne magnetometer survey that was commissioned by Aben for its wholly-owned Pringle North Property in Red Lake, Ontario, has currently been completed and elaborate interpretive work is in progress.

About Pringle North Gold Project

The property includes five contiguous mining claims encompassing about 1,881 hectares. The property is nearly 60 km to the north of the town of Red Lake and is situated 15 km east of the all-weather Nungesser Road.

In recent times, this area has been identified by the “Ministry of Energy, Northern Development and Mines Recommendations for Exploration 2020-2021” for its innate structural similarities linked to the Red Lake Gold Camp and Great Bear Resource’s Dixie Gold Project.

This deep-rooted structure (called the “E-1 Extensional Fault”) found along this trend was delineated by seismic surveys and is regarded as a third deep-tapping structure that might have offered fluid pathways for gold mineralization to the mines and the latest breakthroughs that happened in the region.

Through age determination (by Sanborn et al, 2004), this sedimentary belt is dated and assigned to the Balmer Assemblage, which hosts gold mines located in the Red Lake Camp.

Update on Forrest Kerr Gold Project

After three weeks of property-wide prospecting and geological mapping, the field crew has just returned from the Forrest Kerr Project. Fieldwork involved identifying mineralized trends outboard of the high-grade precious metal mineralization in the Boundary Valley, situated close to the center of the 23,397-hectare property.

The activities of field reconnaissance occurred throughout the whole of the Forrest Kerr claim group and were successful in gaining a better knowledge of the controls on present gold mineralization and the ability to find new precious metal mineralization.

The Forrest Kerr Property consists of highly modified Mesozoic rocks that reflect a strong and extensive hydrothermal system with demonstrated high-grade mineralization and a real potential for more sizeable breakthroughs.
