Gold Terra Resource Corp.
Gold Terra Resource Corp. is a junior gold exploration company that has assembled a highly prospective district scale land position on the doorstep of the City of Yellowknife in the Northwest Territories. The Company is currently focused on expanding and delineating gold resources at the Company's Yellowknife City Gold Project. With ready access to infrastructure and multiple new high-grade gold discoveries, Gold Terra is on track to re-establishing Yellowknife as one of the premier gold mining districts in Canada.
Gold Terra received the Northwest Territories MAX Award for Environmental and Social Responsibility in 2017.
Con Mine Strategic Acquisition
November 19th 2021 – C$1.5M Strategic Investment and Option Agreement with Newmont to purchase 100% of the past producing high-grade Con Gold Mine.
Yellowknife City Gold Project, Northwest Territories
The Company's 100%-owned Yellowknife City Gold (YCG) project encompasses 800 sq. km of contiguous land right next to city of Yellowknife in the Northwest Territories. Through a series of acquisitions, Gold Terra controls one of the six major high-grade gold camps in Canada. Being within 10 kilometres 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 tradespeople.
Gold Terra is currently focusing its drilling on the prolific Campbell shear, where 14 million ounces of gold have been produced, and most recently on the Con mine option claims immediately south of the past-producing Con mine (1938 and 2003).
The YCG lies on the prolific Yellowknife greenstone belt, covering nearly 70 kilometres of strike length along the main mineralized shear system that host the former-producing high-grade Con and Giant gold mines.
The Company's exploration programs have successfully identified significant zones of gold mineralization and multiple targets that remain to be tested, reinforcing the Company's objective of re-establishing Yellowknife as one of the premier gold mining districts in Canada.

On October 05, 2022, Gold Terra Resource Corp. has released new trenching results from its 2022 summer surface sampling program on the Mulligan property, located in Restigouche county, New Brunswick, 100 kilometres west of Bathurst. Summer work consisted of trenching and sampling on two areas with previously reported gold and silver mineralization referred to as trench 1 and trench 2. Channel sampling returned very positive results, including up to 32.9 grams per tonne gold (Au) and 579 g/t silver (Ag) in trench 1, indicating a potential hydrothermal system that extends at least 700 metres long by possibly 20 metres between the trenches, and is open in all directions.
On September 07, 2022, Gold Terra Resource Corp. announced the initial Mineral Resource Estimate ("MRE") on the Con Mine property, which is under option from subsidiaries of Newmont Corporation and acquirable by the Company upon fulfillment of certain conditions set out in the option agreement (the "Con Mine Option Property"), and located adjacent to the Company's 100% owned Yellowknife City Gold project (the YCG Project") in the Northwest Territories.
The Company's initial MRE on the Con Mine option Property is comprised of an underground mineral resource of 109,000 gold ounces in the Indicated category and 432,000 ounces of gold in the Inferred category. In addition, the Company has 1.2 Moz inferred resources (see March 31, 2021 Technical Report) on their adjacent 100% owned YCG property. This extensive land package is close to the City of Yellowknife with all its extensive existing infrastructure.
On August 31, 2022, Gold Terra Resource Corp. has reported excellent gold recovery from its initial metallurgical tests on the Yellorex zone part of the Campbell shear. The Yellorex zone is located approximately two kilometres south of the former producer, the Con mine, which is under option from Newmont Corp. The Yellorex zone is adjacent to the company's 100-per-cent-owned Yellowknife City gold project, Northwest Territories. Highlights:
On August 25, 2022, Gold Terra Resource Corp. has released final assay results for all 19 drill holes, totalling 6,011 metres, drilled in the Mispickel area, including a higher-grade rerun assay for hole GTWL22-004, with reported visible gold (VG) and assay results for the remaining 11 holes of the program. The 2022 drilling program has successfully extended gold mineralization in the Mispickel area with the addition of two new gold zones, MP-Ryan and zone 14. Gold Terra plans to return to the area next winter with more drilling to infill and extend the three high-grade zones identified to date. The Mispickel area and multiple high-grade zones are open in all directions.
Highlights include hole GTWL22-017, which intersected 5.17 grams per tonne gold over three metres from 320 metres to 323 metres, and an updated rerun assay result for hole GTWL22-004, which returned 9.36 g/t Au over three metres from 57 metres to 60 metres, including the sample containing the visible-gold-bearing vein, which graded 27.7 g/t Au over one metre.
On June 27, 2022, Gold Terra Resource Corp. has released assay results of GTCM22-037, which was designed to test the Campbell shear at a depth of 1,000 vertical metres. GTCM22-037 intersected the Campbell shear as planned with the main zone carrying of 1.60 g/t gold (Au) over 14.57 metres, including two gold zones of 1.97 g/t Au over 6.50 metres from 1,263.30 to 1,269.80 metres and 2.00 g/t Au over 4.50 metres from 1,256.08 to 1,260.58 metres.
On June 13, 2022, All matters submitted to the shareholders for approval as set out in Gold Terra Resource Corp.'s notice of meeting and information circular, mailed to shareholders in connection with the meeting, were approved at the company's annual general and special meeting, held in Vancouver, B.C., on June 7, 2022.
On June 07, 2022, Gold Terra Resource Corp. has released assay results for three additional drill holes, GTCM22-004, 008 and 014 designed to expand high-grade mineralization in the Mispickel area. Drilling continues to extend gold mineralization in the new high-grade MP-Ryan zone, a second zone situated west of the main Mispickel area that has the potential to add ounces to the original Mispickel zone, with both zones near surface. To date, the company has released eight holes out of the 19-hole winter program which totals 6,011 metres. Significant intersections for the three holes in the MP-Ryan zone include:
On April 6, 2022, Gold Terra Resource Corp. has released assay results for three holes to test the Yellorex zone, Yellowknife, NWT. Drill hole GTCM22-030 intersected 6.41 g/t gold over 26.50 metres, including 9.05 g/t over 4.00 metres, 10.66 g/t gold over 3.0 metres and 14.15 g/t gold over 5.50 metres.
Chairman and chief executive officer Gerald Panneton commented: "The latest drilling on the Yellorex zone was completed in preparation for our updated mineral resource estimate by year-end as the core from hole 30 will be used for metallurgical testing. Our updated mineral resource estimate is expected to add ounces from the Yellorex zone."
On March 22, 2022, Gold Terra Resource Corp. has released partial assay results in drill hole GTWL22-002, which intersected 19 g/t gold over four metres, including 73.9 g/t gold over one metre, in the Mispickel area. Drilling continues to extend the new high-grade MP-Ryan zone at least 200 metres north of the main Mispickel area. The hole is part of a small winter drill program in the northern part of the Company's Yellowknife City gold project.
On March 15, 2022, Gold Terra Resource announced assay results of a near surface mineralized zone in drill hole GTCM22-029 which intersected 3.61g/t gold over 4.55 metres including 15.75 g/t over 0.75 metres at 30 metres vertical depth on the Con Mine Property. The 2022 drill program is well underway with four drills turning. The Company is reporting a new discovery on the Con shear in the hanging wall of the Campbell Shear.
