The Rush Is On

Corporate Mission.

Sojourn Exploration is unlocking the potential of the famed and mineral-rich Golden Triangle. By adopting a “prospect generator” exploration finance model and partnering with a technical and pioneering geologist–20 plus years working in northwestern BC’s tough and steep topography, Sojourn is well positioned to advance drilling and exploration of its newly optioned Willoughby and Oweegee Dome properties.

The Golden Triangle.

What is the Golden Triangle?

The Golden Triangle is a remote and mountainous region of northwestern British Columbia, straddling the border of Alaska’s panhandle. The area lies on top of a geography that has created a very high concentration of precious mineral deposits.

History

The Golden Triangle has been known since the 19th-century as a plentiful source for precious minerals. Gold, silver, and other mineral mines have been operated from the region since 1918.

In the 1990s, the Eskay Creek and Snip properties were productive enough to grant the Golden Triangle its name. The Eskay Creek property was, during the 1990s, the most productive gold mine in Canada. It was eventually closed in 2008 due to low gold prices, depletion, and the high cost of operations.

Why not before?

Historically, the region has proven difficult to reach and traverse due to the distances required to reach it and a lack of significant infrastructure. The difficult terrain has also made exploration, drilling, and supply of the area costly. This has made consistent, long-term development of the region’s mining infrastructure costly and difficult and has led to many projects being closed.

Why now?

Circumstances today point to a new ‘golden age’ in the Golden Triangle.

Receeding Cambria Glacier

The retreat of the glaciers which once covered the region are exposing new rock and creating more cost-effective opportunities for exploration.

Higher Gold Prices

Gold prices, at historic lows when the Eskay Creek and Snip properties closed, have since risen.

New Infrastructure

The Golden Triangle has become easier to reach, explore, and supply as more infrastructure has been constructed.

Maturing Production

Mines currently operated by large scale gold producers are maturing. The newly accessible riches promised by the Golden Triangle offer new opportunities for these producers.

Receeding Cambria Glacier.

The retreat of the glaciers which once covered the region are exposing new rock and creating more cost-effective opportunities for exploration.

From the discovery of gold in the region up until only a few decades ago, exploration was constrained by the Cambria Icefield, which covers much of the Golden Triangle’s unique geology. But since the 1980s this glacier cover has receded dramatically, giving explorers access to a wider range of elevations and previously unseen rock.

Higher Gold Prices.

Gold prices, at historic lows when the Eskay Creek and Snip properties closed, have since risen.

Despite their productivity and the high quality of the geology, past mining projects in the Golden Triangle have found themselves undercut in past decades by low gold prices. Combined with the high costs of exploiting resources in the region’s remote and difficult landscape, projects like Eskay Creek often struggled to remain profitable.

Today, higher gold prices and the reduced costs of operating in the Golden Triangle are making projects in the area an attractive proposition for explorers and producers.

Power Lines

Today, a BC Hydro powerline allows for current projects to connect to cheap and plentiful electric power.

Access Roads

A number of access roads built inside the Golden Triangle have opened up new areas to exploration and development and are connecting current projects to supply.

New Infrastructure.

The Golden Triangle has become easier to reach, explore, and supply as more infrastructure has been constructed.

Efforts by both prospectors and producers to engage in long-term projects in the Golden Triangle were once hindered by the region’s remoteness and lack of infrastructure.

Maturing Production.

Mines currently operated by large scale gold producers are maturing. The newly accessible riches promised by the Golden Triangle offer new opportunities for these producers.

Properties.

Both of Sojourn’s properties are located in the southern region of the Golden Triangle, close to the ice-free port of Stewart, access roads, and Highway 37.

More information:

Willoughby

Ripe for Exploration

The small Willoughby property, located 24km to the east of Stewart, was once covered by the Cambrian icefield. But as the glacier cover has retreated, the area has become ripe for exploration.

Willoughby

Gold & Silver

Willoughby’s geology reveals it as a promising site for future gold and silver extraction. Additionally, the property’s close proximity to the ice-free port of Stewart and Highway 37 makes it readily accessible and supplied.

Oweegee Dome

Infrastructure & Access

The expansive Owegee Dome property, located 74km northeast of Stewart, has benefited immensely from the recent increases in infrastructure. Today, five roads intercut the property, allowing a high degree of access. BC Hydro’s newly constructed powerline also runs directly through the property.

Oweegee Dome

Productive Geology

While more in-depth exploration and testing is required, the Owegee Dome property is underlain by the same geology as that which formed some of the Golden Triangle’s most productive past operations, such as Eskay Creek and Granduc.

NEWS.

The Golden Triangle of Northern British Columbia continues to be one of the key exploration areas within British Columbia and hosts several significant deposits. Sojourn has optioned two exceptional projects in the Golden Triangle – Willoughby and Oweegee.
