GoldON Expands West Madsen Project Acquiring Two Adjoining Claim Blocks that are Contiguous with Pure Gold’s Red Lake Mine Property
The prospective Balmer-Confederation contact is interpreted to transect the expanded Property for 8.0 kilometres
VICTORIA, BC / ACCESSWIRE / July 29, 2020 / GoldON Resources Ltd. (TSXV:GLD) (“GoldON” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce it has entered into an option agreement with Bounty Gold Corp. (Bounty) to acquire a 100% interest in the Flat Lake and the Madsen-Medicine Stone claim groups that adjoin Block A of the West Madsen Property (click on Figure 1 below to enlarge).
Figure 1: West Madsen – Block A and Bounty Claim Groups with inferred Balmer-Confederation Contact
The southern boundary of the 692-hectare Flat Lake Claim Group adjoins the West Madsen – Block A, while the eastern claim boundary adjoins the Pure Gold Red Lake Mine property. Notably, Pure Gold’s Russet South deposit and Wedge zone lie approximately 400 metres northeast and 300 metres southeast, respectively, of the Flat lake eastern claim boundary (see Figure 2 below).

The north, west and southern claim boundaries of the 170-hectare Madsen-Medicine Stone Claim Group adjoin West Madsen – Block A, while the eastern claim boundary adjoins Pure Gold’s property within 1 km of their Wedge zone (see Figure 1 & 2 above). On July 7, 2020, Pure Gold announced that their Wedge zone is one of the key growth areas outside of their phase 1 mine plan and that two surface drills had recommenced exploration drilling.
Pure Gold has identified a seven-kilometre-long gold system along the major crustal break between the Balmer and Confederation assemblages. The Balmer-Confederation contact trends west and has been identified on the Madsen-Medicine Stone Claim Group 1.6 km west of the Pure Gold property boundary at an outcrop exposure. This area is a high-priority exploration target as the metavolcanics show evidence of deformation, alteration and mineralization demonstrating that the Balmer-Confederation contact was active here as it was further east on the Pure Gold property.
Based on a geological and structural interpretation of a 2017 regional airborne magnetic survey completed by Great Bear Resources in conjunction with surface trenching and the recent drilling results, the prospective Balmer-Confederation contact is interpreted to transect the Madsen-Medicine Stone claims and continue on to the West Madsen – Block A for 8 km (see Figure 1 above). To date, only two drill holes have tested this prospective contact.
Under the terms of the option agreement, GoldON can acquire a 100% interest in the Flat Lake and Madsen-Medicine Stone claim groups by paying Bounty $80,000 over two years and issuing 250,000 shares over one year. Bounty will retain a 2% net smelter returns royalty of which GoldON may purchase half for $1,000,000.
“We feel the West Madsen property is one of the most exciting, underexplored projects in Red Lake and the addition of the Bounty claims now gives us 8 kilometres of highly prospective hunting ground for gold exploration right next door to the Pure Gold Red Lake mine that is expected to be in production before year’s end,” said Mike Romanik president of GoldON. “Bounty Gold has done an excellent job in developing the exploration potential of these claim blocks, we look forward to working with them and welcome them as GoldON shareholders.”

GoldON has the right to earn a 100% interest in the West Madsen property through an option agreement with Great Bear Resources (see news release of May 28, 2019 and regional claim map Figure 1). The Property is comprised of two contiguous claim blocks (Block “A” and “B”), each roughly six km by three km in size for a total area of 3,860 hectares (see Figure 2).
