The Monster Copper Cobalt Property - Yukon
The Monster Property is an Iron Oxide Copper Gold (IOCG) occurrence covering 63 km2 in the Yukon Dawson mining district. There are elevated copper, cobalt, gold, and silver showings across the entire 18 km length of the property, indicating extensive subsurface mineralization.
The Monster IOCG mineralization is hosted within and directly adjacent to the Wernecke Breccia (see figure below) which is correlated to large deposits in Australia and Chile offering great high-tonnage potential.

Remote Spectral Geology
A property wide remote sensing survey was undertaken in early 2018 on the Monster. Remote Spectral Geology (RSG) is the measurement and analysis-interpretation of spectral satellite data to identify different rock types and surface materials and their alteration signatures.
The RSG technique has identified the sections of the Monster property with the best potential to host Cu-Au and Cu-Co mineralization using Landsat 5, 7 & 8 and Sentinel 2 satellite data.
Gravity Survey Inversion 2019
The gravity survey indicates a large gravity high in proximity to the Beast target. The Beast consists of a 1.5 km wide shallow magnetic anomaly surrounded by surface mineralization. These encouraging results have made the Beast a high-priority target. Rock samples taken from these anomalous zones have visible cobaltite and erythrite, both different types of cobalt mineralization.
Data further indicates that the Goblin and Cobalt Cirque showings in the Arena target area are underlain and connected by a gravity high. The survey shows that there are east-west oriented gravity highs on the claim. The east-west oriented fault set was recently recognized by lineament analysis and magnetic intensity to be a first order control on mineralization.
