EMX’s Tromsø Gold project (21,000 hectares) contains multiple styles of mineralization including both orogenic style gold and VMS targets. Located in an underexplored Archean Ringvassøya Greenstone Belt- the northwestern extension of Central Lapland Greenstone Belt (CLGB). The CLGB hosts multiple deposits including Anigco Eagle’s Kittila*, which is Europe’s largest gold mine.
Tromsø Gold contains multiple targets including historical rockhips samples up to 82.7 g/t Au. EMX completed a regional BLEG program that confirmed existing anomalies and produced new anomalous basins. One known anomaly that was confirmed during the regional BLEG program was Sordalshogda. This target is a 1.5 km trend of gold in rock chip samples associated with orogenic-style quartz veins. Initially this prospect was explored by competing companies where data was never shared and compiled. This is the first time the target is explored as a continuous target. EMX plans to use ionic leach soil sample to identify new targets in preparation for drill-targeting.
*Note: The nearby mines and deposits in the region provide context for EMX’s Project, which occurs in a similar geologic setting, but this is not necessarily indicative that the project hosts similar tonnages or grades of mineralization.
EMX BLEG samples were collected in 2019, in accordance with industry standard best practices. Samples are prepped for sampling before submittal to ALS in Malå, Sweden where it is prepped for analysis. Accredited control samples blanks and accredited standards are inserted into the sample intervals regularly.
