Tromsø Au

EMX’s Tromsø Gold project contains multiple styles of mineralization including orogenic style gold and VMS targets. The project is located in northern Norway, in the underexplored Archean Ringvassøya Greenstone Belt - the northwestern extension of Central Lapland Greenstone Belt (CLGB). The CLGB hosts multiple deposits including Agnico Eagle’s Kittila*, which is Europe’s largest gold mine.

Mineralization in the Ringvassøya Greenstone belt is hosted in hornblende schists, amphibolites and meta-sediments. Multiple occurrences in the area have never seen any thorough follow-up. Historically, exploration mainly targeted VMS occurrences but gold was never a focus. However, NGU samples showed up to 3.3 g/t Au1 in the southwestern area of the EMX claims. In 2023, EMX completed a regional BLEG program that confirmed existing anomalies and produced new anomalous basins. These are focus areas for follow-up exploration and EMX plans to use ionic leach soil sampling to identify new targets in preparation for drill-targeting.

The island maintains its own hydroelectric facility, resulting in very low energy prices.

* The nearby mines provide geologic context for EMX’s Project, but this is not necessarily indicative that the Project hosts similar grades or tonnages of mineralization

¹n = 23, avg = 0.28 g/t Au, min = 0 g/t. Historic assay values quoted above are from the NGU, Rapport nr. 98-072. EMX has not performed sufficient work to verify the published data reported above, but EMX believes this information is considered reliable and relevant.
