Detailed Information

The Trident property lies within the northern portion of Dawson Range Gold Belt, near the border between Yukon and Alaska, about 60 km northwest of White Gold Corps.'s White Gold deposit and 75 km northwest of Goldcorp’s Coffee deposit.

The property comprises a total of 570 mineral claims including; 388 claims that are wholly owned by Trifecta (the wholly owned claims); and 182 claims that are subject to an option agreement with an arm’s length prospector (the CH Option). The mineral claims are contiguous and all are located in the Dawson Mining District.

The Trident property lies within the Matson Creek placer gold camp, 78 km southwest of Dawson City. There is a dirt airstrip on the property that is suitable for a short takeoff and landing aircraft. A system of roads and trails provides ground access from the airstrip to the placer workings and the main hard rock exploration areas on the property. A bush road extends approximately 70 km north from the property, through the Sixty Mile placer gold camp, to the Top of the World Highway, which runs from Dawson City into Alaska.

Topography on the property is gentle and encompasses dendritic drainages emanating from a rounded, north-trending ridge system. The area heavily vegetated with thick brush near ridge tops, and spruce and poplar forests at lower elevations. Permafrost is common on mossy, north-facing hillsides and in valley bottoms. Streams draining the property are part of the Yukon River watershed.

The property lies within the Yukon-Tanana Terrane and is underlain by quartzite, quartz-muscovite±chlorite schist, augen gneiss, amphibolite and phyllite of the Permian, Klondike Schist, which is generally interpreted as a metavolcanic arc package. Outcrop is rare on the property, and bedrock is mainly exposed in placer workings, a few exploration trenches and isolated knobs along ridge crests.

The Trident property has not been glaciated, thus it is intensely weathered and oxidation levels are likely to be much deeper than are found in glaciated areas elsewhere in Yukon. These features coupled with extensive solifluction can mute and dilute metal contents in soils, complicating interpretation of results from geochemical surveys.

The wholly owned claims were recently staked by Trifecta, around the optioned claim blocks. They cover the airstrip and some of the placer creeks. Little historical hard rock exploration is documented on these claims, but strong lead-in-soil anomalies have been outlined in some areas that are underlain by quartz-muscovite schist.

The area of the CH Option has been staked and lightly explored at various times since 1970. Minor trenching was done in 1993 and exposed a 1 m wide quartz vein containing galena. The current claims were staked in 2011. Soil sampling preformed in 2012 and 2015 outlined clusters of anomalous gold, silver, copper, lead and zinc values. No trenching or drilling has been done to follow-up these anomalous results, and most of the claims have not yet been covered by soil geochemical surveys.
