Goldbank reports on 2017 yukon exploration

Blog by Goldbank Mining Corporation | November 17th, 2017

Goldbank Mining Corporation (“Goldbank”)(TSX.V-GLB) is pleased to report it has completed the 2017 field program on the Leota Gold Project located in the historic Klondike near Dawson City, Yukon Territory. Exploration by Goldbank included “C” horizon soil sampling, mechanical pitting/trenching and bedrock mapping and sampling. The soil geochemistry program was designed to locate precious and base metals anomalies in different rock assemblages and at their contacts. 

Goldbank’s Leota Gold Project is a package of 1,046 quartz (hard rock) mineral claims overlying the principle eastern ridges and tributaries of Hunker Creek, a prolific placer-gold producing watershed in the Klondike. Documented placer gold production from Hunker Creek is in excess of 4 million ounces of gold. The source of this placer gold, and the source of placer gold mined and being placer mined from the rest of the Klondike area, has never been discovered. 

Goldbank has now completed the acquisition of the remaining 50% interest in 1025 Quartz claims in the Leota Gold Project. Goldbank now owns 100% of the Leota Gold Project subject to a 3% Net Smelter Royalty. An additional 21 contiguous quartz mineral claims were staked and added to the Leota mineral claims this summer. 

The Leota Gold Project lies within 45 kilometers of Dawson City, YT. Access is excellent, including by paved highway and various mining roads.
