Trailbreaker Commences 2024 Exploration Program in British Columbia

Trailbreaker has reported the commencement of its 2024 surficial exploration program at its Castle Rock property on northern Vancouver Island, British Columbia (BC).

Trailbreaker Commences 2024 Exploration Program in British Columbia

Areas of focus for the 2024 exploration program. Soil geochemical anomalies and highlighted rock samples from the 2023 surface sampling program are overlain on geological and structural interpretations of the regional airborne magnetic survey. Sampling defined a 3 km gold-in-soil trend which includes the Heart, Watchtower, and Kokummi zones. The 2024 exploration program will follow up on results at the newly discovered Watchtower and Kokummi zones, the historic Flan zone, and will investigate unexplored ground along the trend to the northwest.

The program will include reconnaissance exploration of uncharted territory and follow-up exploration based on the data gained in 2023.

In 2023, a magnetic lineament was used to define a 3 km gold-in-soil geochemical anomaly. This anomaly contains the recently discovered Kokummi and Watchtower zones in addition to the Heart zone (a historic chip sample of 2.0 g/t Au [gold] across 30 m).

According to the interpretation of airborne magnetic data, the southwest property area's Kokummi granodioritic stock is the source of northwest-trending structures that are associated with mineralization. According to this perspective, a large portion of the land that possesses mineral potential has not yet been investigated.

The exploration program for 2024 will include prospecting the Watchtower and Kokummi zones and taking about 400 soil geochemical samples in an attempt to characterize and broaden the geochemical signature.

In 2023, reconnaissance exploration will extend to previously unexplored areas along the northwest trend and the Flan zone. The Flan zone is notable for its historic showing, where previous assays reported up to 135 g/t Au in boulders. Recent exploration in this area confirmed high-grade gold mineralization, with assay results reaching up to 42.1 g/t Au and 1.93 % Cu.

Additionally, basalt-hosted semi-massive pyrite-chalcopyrite-pyrrhotite mineralization sampled in outcrops returned up to 3.1 g/t Au. This mineralization is suspected to be related to the earlier float samples, suggesting that potentially higher-grade material remains undiscovered, hidden under vegetation and/or till cover.

The Castle Rock property represents an exciting opportunity for new mineral discoveries in an area with little historic exploration. We are eager to follow up on the 2023 results and to continue advancing the project. There’s a lot of unexplored ground here with high potential for discoveries.
