At Banyan Gold Corp., our purpose is simple: Build a reputable exploration company through value driven acquisition, discovery and development.
Banyan is focused on advancing two Yukon gold properties, the Hyland Gold Project and the Aurex-McQuesten Gold Project.
The Hyland Gold Project has a National Instrument 43-101 Technical Report (NI-43-101) indicated mineral resource of 8.6 million tonnes grading 0.85 gram per tonne gold equivalent (AuEq) for 236,000 AuEq ounces with an inferred mineral resource of 10.8 million tonnes grading 0.83 g/t AuEq for 288,000 AuEq ounces at a 0.3 g/t AuEq cut-off. This resource is located in its entirety on what is known as the “Main Zone”, is open in all directions and at depth, and has the potential to host a multi-million ounce deposit.
The 9,230 ha Aurex-McQuesten Property lies in close proximity to both Victoria Gold’s Eagle Project and Alexco Resource’s Keno Hill Silver District and is highly prospective for structurally controlled, intrusion related gold-silver mineralization in relation to the Tombstone intrusive suite. The property hosts numerous known gold targets and Banyan has developed a mineralization model at the McQuesten “Airstrip” Gold target, located adjacent to the main Yukon highway and just off the main access road to the Victoria Gold open-pit, heap leach Eagle Gold mine. The Property benefits from a 3-phase powerline, existing Yukon Energy Corp. switching power station and cell phone coverage.
