Primary minerals: Gold, Copper

Project to promote: Golden Summit

Project location: USA


Freegold is currently exploring in Alaska, a stable jurisdiction with a long mining history, strong existing infrastructure, and significant development upside. Our Flagship project, The Golden Summit Project, is an advanced-stage gold asset. The project is based in the prolific Tintina gold belt and is situated near to Kinross Gold’s Fort Knox Project, a large low-grade gold deposit that has produced over 8 million ounces over its +25 year mine life. A preliminary economic assessment of The Golden Summit Project was completed in 2016. Since 2020 we have completed over 83,000 metres of drilling focusing on expanding and identifying a higher-grade corridor to enhance the project economics and aimed at advancing the project through the pre-feasibility stage. In early 2023 we completed an updated mineral resource update.

For the pit-constrained resource, the mining, processing and G&A costs amount to US$25.70/tonne which results in a cutoff grade of 0.45 g/t Au (25.70/57.61 = 0.446 rounded to 0.45 g/t).

Additional financing was obtained in late March 2023, and drilling to expand the resource to the north and west is underway. The resource area represents in only one of the prospective target areas on the project. Additional geophysics and geochemical surveys have been conducted in preparation for drilling on these targets later this year.
