  Aims to capitalize in the new Yukon Gold Rush  

Company Overview

Taku Gold Corp. is an exploration and resource company with substantial land holdings in the White Gold District of Yukon, Canada. Today, the company is one of the largest stakeholders in the region, which has recently been the site of numerous major gold finds, and is rapidly emerging as the heart of the new Yukon Gold Rush. Taku Gold also owns the TAG Gold-Silver Project, located in northern British Columbia. TAG project revealed a 6.2 km gold-bearing fault that has yielded gold and silver in 67 holes drilled to date. In addition, Taku Gold has purchased a 100% interest in the McQ Gold property located in the emerging McQueston gold district of Yukon and has also agreed to purchase a 100% interest in the Keynote property in the Keno Hill area of Yukon.

White Gold District Properties, Yukon Territory

White Gold District
The White Gold District of Yukon lies within the Tintina Gold Belt. It is one of the largest gold area plays in Western Canada. Since 2007, the District has seen gold discoveries of approximately 7 Million Oz and there have been major acquisitions and investments announced by GoldCorp, Agnico Eagle, Barrick Gold, Kinross and others recently.

In the White Gold District of Yukon, Taku Gold owns a portfolio of highly prospective properties including Rosebute, Sulphur, Quartz, Bishop, and Wounded Moose (covering 1,449 claims, 29,813 hectares) as well as its recent strategic acquisition from Golden Predator's 100% interests in the Chopin Project, the Korat Project, the Lucky Joe Project, the 40 Mile Claims and the Sonora Gulch Property (covering 917 claims, 18,448-hectares). Together with the properties acquired from Golden Predator, Taku's portfolio in the White Gold District now consists of ten properties covering 2,366 claims covering (48,261 hectares). that brings Taku one of the largest stakeholders in the region.
In 2012, detailed deep-auger soil sampling surveys on Rosebute, Sulphur, Quartz, Bishop and Wounded Moose properties resulted in the discovery of 7 significant gold anomalies including the very large Hudbay and Norwest Gold Zones located on the Rosebute property.

Taku Gold is well funded and planning to aggressively exploring the Rosebute and Sulphur Property beginning in the second half of 2017.

  Rosebute Property (14,387 hectares)
Rosebute property is located approximately 29 kilometres north of the Golden Saddle Deposit owned by White Gold Corp.. The Property is contiguous to the west of Independence Gold’s Henderson Property, and is situated in close proximity to the proposed northern access road that will provide access to the multi-million-ounce Coffee gold deposit recently purchased by Goldcorp for $520 Million.

    Project Highlights
  • There are 3 target areas identified by soil geochemistry, Hudbay, Norwest & Southeast
  • Western third of property remains to be soil sampled
  • 1,341 metres of trenching encountered up to 6.2 g/t Au over 5.0m as well as 1.5 g/t Au over 20.0m at Hudbay Zone

Taku’s most promising project, Rosebute, contains two extensive gold-in-soil zones known as the Norwest and Hudbay zones that will be the focus of the Company’s 2017 exploration program in Yukon.

Rosebute property is acquired in March 2010 from well-known Yukon prospector Shawn Ryan. In 2010, 5,158 soil samples were collected on two grids based on 50m sample intervals on lines spaced approximately 100m apart, and a 1,107km airborne radiometric and magnetic geophysical survey was flown. Excellent geochemical results were obtained from the first grid located in the northwestern part of the property and an anomalous gold area approximately 189ha in size was identified (the Norwest zone).

Hudbay Zone
Hudbay Zone is a large gold-in-soil anomaly in the western part of the Rosebute property. In 2012, A total of 1,341 metres of trenching was done in seven trenches to test the southern end of the Hudbay zone. Broken bedrock in the trenches was sampled systematically at five metre sampling intervals and a number of parallel, north-trending gold zones were identified. Highlights of the sampling include 6.17g/t Au over 5m from 35.0m in Trench 12-02 and 1.50g/t Au over 20.0m from 130.0m in Trench 12-04.

Norwest Zone
In 2011, detailed geochemical sampling delineated three distinct gold anomalies. In 2012, Taku began by concentrating on the Norwest zone's three gold-rich anomalies. Taku released results from a four hole, 963 metre core drilling program completed Norwest Zone. Three of the four holes returned notable gold intersections.

The first hole intersected 0.95 grams per tonne gold (gpt Au) over 23.4 metres (m) from 22.6m in an area where soil geochemical sampling returned up to 1.3gpt Au within an anomalous trend at least 500m long. The second hole intersected 1.58gpt Au over 1.0m from 19.0m in an area where a strong arsenic-in-soil anomaly was identified in 2011. The fourth hole intersected 0.88gpt Au over 3.0m from 66.0m where soil geochemical sampling returned up to 0.3gpt Au within an anomalous area at least 450m long. The third hole, drilled to test 900m long gold-in-soil trend with values up to 0.2gpt Au, did not intersect any notable gold-bearing intervals.

  Sulphur Property (11,334 hectares)
Sulphur Property is located in the Klondike gold district of Yukon approximately 45 kilometres southeast of Dawson City. The property straddles Sulphur Creek where there are currently at least four active placer gold mining operations. The Sulphur Creek road provides good access to the property.

    Project Highlights
  • Five target areas: Lions (top priority), Blues, Stamps, Riders & Esks
  • Lions Zone: Strong gold, silver, arsenic in soil anomalies 75 to 150m down slope from conductor axis
  • Drilled in 2012 (2.0m @ 0.3g/t Au)
  • 2015 electromagnetic survey outlines north-trending conductor
  • 2011 trenching & 2012 drilling missed target!

In 2011, reconnaissance ridge and spur soil sampling identified seven geochemically anomalous zones.

In August 2012, 1,033 metre core drilling program in the Lions area which is located in the northeast corner of the property encountered anomalous gold values with the best intersection found in hole SU12-01 where 0.31 grams per tonne Au (gpt Au) was intersected over 2.0m section from 50.0m.

Better gold values were encountered in the single hole drilled on the Blues area across the Sulphur Creek valley from Lions. Soil geochemical sampling over the Blues area in 2011 defined a 900m long, northwest-trending, linear gold-in-soil anomaly, and up to 1.0gpt Au was obtained from trench sampling. Hole SU12-07 returned three gold intersections with up to 0.72gpt Au over 1.0m from 72.0m.

  Quartz Property (3,022 hectares)
Includes the section of Quartz Creek where significant placer gold has been and continues to be produced.

A 901-sample, deep auger-type, soil geochemical survey and 340 line km airborne geophysical survey was completed over the 146-claim (3022ha) Quartz property in mid-September 2010. The soil sampling was done at 50m intervals on lines spaced approximately 450m apart and is therefore very preliminary. However a cluster of seven anomalous gold-in-soil values was identified in the northwest corner of the property with a maximum value of 24ppm Au. This cluster occurs at the south margin of a very strong magnetic high identified by the airborne geophysical survey.

Taku also completed a high-definition, airborne magnetic and radiometric geophysical survey on the property in 2010.

  Wounded Moose Property (9,338 hectares)
Covers a series of circular airborne magnetic highs that parallel Wounded Moose Creek where placer gold production has been recorded.

Taku completed a high-definition, airborne magnetic and radiometric geophysical survey on the property in 2010 outlining several west-trending geophysical features.

Strategic Properties from Golden Predator

The Sonora Gulch Property includes 259 mineral claims (5,414 hectares) located approximately 110 kilometres northwest of the town of Carmacks along the winter access portion of the Casino Trail which extends from Carmacks to the Casino project located northwest of Sonora. The Property is located at the nexus of the White Gold District, which includes the Coffee and Golden Saddle gold deposits, and the Dawson Range Mineral Belt, which includes Capstone’s producing Minto copper mine, the Casino, Cariboo Rose and Carmacks copper deposits, and the Freegold, Klaza and Mount Nansen advanced gold projects.

The Chopin Project consists of 36 quartz mining claims located approximately 90 kilometres northwest of Carmacks in the Dawson Range of central Yukon.

The Korat Project consists of nine quartz mining claims surrounded by Comstock Metals' QV property. The claims are located approximately 8 kilometres north of Comstock's VG deposit and 20 kilometres north of White Gold Corp's Golden Saddle Deposit.

The Lucky Joe Project consists of 548 quartz mining claims located 50 kilometers south of Dawson. Itbounds Taku’s Rosebute property to the north. The combined Lucky Joe-Rosebute property is located in the heart of the White Gold area, approximately 50 kilometres south of Dawson City and roughly 29 kilometres north of White Gold Corp's Golden Saddle Deposit.

The Forty Mile Project consists of 65 quartz mining claims and is road accessible via the Top of the World Highway 80 kilometers northwest of Dawson City.

TAG Gold-Silver Project, Atlin Mining Division, Northern British Columbia

    TAG Project Highlights
  • Large-tonnage open-pit deposit potential
  • $4.2 million exploration expenditures to date
  • 6.2 km 025FZ structure open in all directions
  • 69 holes, 11,519m drilling done
  • Initial Resource Calculation completed at Main zone
  • New bulk tonnage intrusion-related target at Barney zone
  • Up to 7.8gpt gold on surface
  • Claims in good-standing until 2021
The 26-claim (2,429-ha) TAG Gold-Silver property is located 35 kilometres due west of Atlin on Taku Arm of Tagish Lake in Northern British Columbia. The property covers 6.2 kilometres of the 025 Fault Zone ("025FZ") that has yielded gold and silver in 67 holes drilled to date. In 2008, trenching revealed values of up to 7.8 grams per ton of gold in an area ("Barney Zone ") underlain by a quartz diorite intrusion, suggesting the potential for a large-tonnage open-pit deposit.

In 2009, an initial NI43-101 compliant resource was estimated using a 3.0gpt gold equivalent cut-off on 28 eligible holes drilled at the "Main" zone. Estimated mineral resources are 250,000 tonnes at 2.97gpt Au and 12.09gpt Ag indicated, and 400,000 tonnes at 2.98gpt Au and 9.91gpt Ag inferred. Additional drilling to expand the resource at the Main zone or to discover new mineralized zones is needed to further advance the Tag project.

McQ Gold property, McQueston, Yukon

The McQ property comprises 96 contiguous claims (2,006 hectares), and is located approximately 35 kilometres northwest of Mayo, Yukon. The property lies roughly 30 kilometres southwest of Victoria Gold's Eagle Gold project which has stated National Instrument 43-101 compliant Probable Mineral Reserves of 91,600,000 tonnes grading 0.78 grams per tonne gold containing 2,300,768 ounces of gold (Victoria Gold Corp. - Technical Report, Eagle Gold Project, Yukon dated May 29, 2015). The property also adjoins the north boundary of Golden Predator's Gold Dome property where exploration drilling has intercepted significant gold mineralization at the Tom, Swede, Hawthorne, Harvey, and Aorta Zones.
