Terrax Minerals Inc.
TerraX Minerals Inc. is a junior gold exploration company focused on creating shareholder value through discovery. The Company's management team is highly experienced, with an impressive track record of success. TerraX Minerals is focused on the 100%-owned Yellowknife City Gold Project in the Yellowknife gold district, the most northerly and least explored of the six major high-grade gold districts in Canada.
With ready access to infrastructure, TerraX has been able to cost-effectively generate multiple new high-grade gold discoveries with a view to re-establishing Yellowknife as one of the premier gold mining districts in Canada.
Yellowknife City Gold (“YCG”) Project, Northwest Territories, Canada
The Yellowknife City Gold ("YCG") project encompasses 783 sq. km of contiguous land immediately north, south and east of the City of Yellowknife in the Northwest Territories. Through a series of acquisitions, TerraX controls one of the six major high-grade gold camps in Canada. Being within 10 km of the City of Yellowknife, the YCG is close to vital infrastructure, including all-season roads, air transportation, service providers, hydro-electric power and skilled trades people.The YCG lies on the prolific Yellowknife greenstone belt, covering 70 km of strike length along the main mineralized break in the Yellowknife gold district, including the southern and northern extensions of the shear system that hosted the high-grade Con and Giant gold mines. The project area contains multiple shears that are the recognized hosts for gold deposits in the Yellowknife gold district, with innumerable gold showings and recent high-grade drill results that serve to indicate the project's potential as a world-class gold district.
