FireFox Gold Corp.
FireFox Gold is focused entirely on gold exploration in Finland, where it is exploring its project portfolio that includes over 1,700 km2 (170,000 hectares) of prospective ground.
Finland is one of the top mining investment jurisdictions in the world, as indicated by its multiple top 10 rankings in recent Fraser Institute Surveys of Mining Companies. Having a strong mining law and long mining tradition, Finland remains underexplored for gold. Recent exploration results in the country have highlighted its prospectivity, and FireFox is proud to have a Finland-based chief executive officer and technical team.
Gold Projects in the central Lapland region of northern Finland
Control of over 1,700 km2 in two gold belts:
The Central Lapland Greenstone Belt (CLGB)
The Kierinki Schist Belt
Jeesiö Gold Project – New Area of Intense Exploration & Discovery
Utsamo Target: New Drill Targets in 2020
Katajavaara Target: Gold Bearing Quartz Vein in Outcrop
Seuru Gold Project – Similar Geology to Kittila Mine & Rupert's Area 1 Targets
Mustajärvi Gold Project – Historic Target with New Expanded Potential
100% owned project:
The observed gold mineralization, structural setting and work to date support the potential for a high-grade orogenic gold deposit on the Mustajärvi property.
On July 27, 2020, FireFox announced that it has engaged GoldSpot Discoveries Corp. (TSXV: SPOT), a leader in utilizing artificial intelligence for target generation in mineral exploration.
FireFox's summer 2020 program integrated new and existing data from rock and trench sampling, till surveys, geophysical surveys, and structural analysis. At Mustajärvi, this process generated three types of priority drill targets:
Kolho and Kelontekema Properties
On September 16, 2020, FireFox Gold Corp. announced that it has added two new properties, the Kolho and Kelontekema properties, to its exploration portfolio in the Central Lapland greenstone belt (CLGB) of Finland. These new reservations bring FireFox's tenement holdings in northern Finland to approximately 1,720 square kilometres, among the largest holdings of gold explorers in Lapland. Field programs have been initiated at both properties.
