Galileo Gold Mine

Amarc Resources Ltd.'s 100% owned, highly prospective 990 square kilometre Galileo claim package lies 16 kilometres west of the Blackwater gold deposit within the emergent Blackwater-Newton gold belt.

About This Project

Amarc Resources Ltd. initiated its 2011 field program at Galileo by undertaking approximately 4,000 line kilometres of helicopter-borne, magnetic and electromagnetic geophysical surveys. By combining results of the airborne survey with in-house geological knowledge and publicly available geological and geochemical data, a number of high-quality epithermal gold-silver and porphyry gold-copper-type targets were identified for subsequent ground-based Induced Polarization (IP) geophysical surveys.

Following more than 140 line kilometres of IP surveys, five sizable, high-quality IP chargeability anomalies have been identified for drill testing. Four of the defined Galileo target areas have dimensions similar to, or exceeding that of, the eight square kilometre sulphide system defined at the Newton project, some 175 kilometres to the south. Field assessment of these five promising gold and/or copper deposit targets is underway so that drill priorities can be established. Drill permits have been received and Amarc plans to drill test these targets this year.

In addition, Amarc recently completed some 600 line kilometres of helicopter-borne, magnetic geophysical surveying over new mineral claims that have been added to the Galileo land package. A number of encouraging deposit scale targets have been identified for field evaluation this season. Permit applications for IP ground geophysical surveys over the new areas have been submitted to government.
