The West Madsen Project covers over 4,700 hectares and is comprised of the West Madsen (Block A and B) claims, where GoldON has the right to earn a 100% interest through an option agreement with Great Bear Resources (see news release of May 28, 2019); and the Flat Lake and Madsen-Medicine Stone claim groups that adjoin Block A, where GoldON can acquire a 100% interest through an option agreement with Bounty Gold (see news release of July 29, 2020, and the Red Lake regional map).

Figure 2: Phase II Drill Plan for West Madsen Project

The focus of the fully-funded Phase II drilling program is on the expanded West Madsen - Block A (see Figure 2 above) that is contiguous with the Pure Gold Red Lake Mine property where the first gold pour is scheduled for late 2020 (Pure Gold's news release of October 27, 2020). Pure Gold's reserves and resources include the Madsen deposit (FS status) and the Fork, Russet South, and Wedge deposits (PEA status) that are hosted in a seven-kilometre-long gold system that follows the major crustal break or contact between the Balmer and Confederation assemblages. This same Balmer-Confederation contact has been exposed in outcrop 1.6 kilometres (km) west of the Pure Gold property boundary and is interpreted to continue for ~8 km across GoldON's property. 

The Phase II program is budgeted for up to 7,000 metres of diamond drilling to aggressively test the strike-extension of both the known gold mineralization to the east and follow-up on the gold mineralization discovered during GoldON's Phase I drilling (see news release of July 22, 2020). The black ellipse in Figure 2 depicts the area of the interpreted east-west trending Balmer-Confederation contact and the systematically planned drill holes that will test the extension of the stratigraphy within the structurally controlled corridor.
