Dr. Quinton Hennigh states:
“Golden Sky has two projects that caught our attention, Hotspot and Rayfield. Hotspot, Yukon, is a newly discovered epithermal gold system hosted by Eocene volcanic rocks. Last season, Golden Sky drilled a 100 gram-meter hole making this an incipient discovery in our view, one in need of immediate follow up. The newly acquired Rayfield project, BC, encompasses an intrusive center displaying multiple prospective alkaline porphyry targets. Historic drilling has encountered narrow intervals of high grades of Cu and Au. We are keen to see the proceeds from this financing used to hit both projects hard this year”.
