Patton Creek - Tributary of Maisy May Creek
South Dawson District - YukonThe Patton Creek property is comprised of 33 fully licensed placer claims located 140 km from Dawson City via a summer road, most of which is passable by 2 wheel drive vehicle although 4 wheel drive is recommended. This property is fully-permitted with a Water License good to 2024.
The central part of Maisy May Creek, which is adjacent to Patton Creek, is a historic producer with over 25,000 ounces of placer gold recorded. Most of the mining was done by Queenstake Resources Ltd.
The creek is named for a Mr. Patton, who reportedly mined 500 ounces by hand on a left-limit bench in the 1940s. In 1987, Queenstake Resources Ltd. mined a high-grade cut on Maisy May Creek just downstream of the mouth of Patton Creek, and they recovered 3892 fine ounces over a 300-foot mining width. Queenstake geologists have said that Patton Creek is the probable source of that high grade zone.
Test pits, drilling and geophysical surveys have shown that the creek has from 6 to 9 feet of gravel and 10 to 12 feet of muck, mostly frozen but thawed near the creek. Unworn, hackly gold grains have been encountered from top to bottom in the gravel section.
Gold results from a small test pit in 2020 were quite promising with several coarse gold pieces recovered along with substantial coarse grained heavy minerals. Road access has been improved so that a pickup can be driven all the way to the Alex 3 claim, with ATV access after that.
Sylvain Fleurant drilled several auger holes in 2020. Two of the drill holes with returned values of 45 mg and 158 mg of gold, respectively.
We are looking for an option or lease agreement, or outright sale at a price of $180,000.
