Since the initial White Gold discovery, over 20 junior mining companies have acquired land in the region which has been dubbed The White Gold District.However, companies focusing their attention solely on the White Gold District may bemissing opportunities farther afieldwhen considering the geological similarities to the broader mineralizing event that created the Dawson Range Mineral Belt - Bennett, Colpron, Burke - Yukon Geological Survey - July 2010YUKON AREA PLAY 3.

HOW MANY DEPOSITS WERE FORMED BY A MASSIVE HYDROTHERMAL EVENT THAT AFFECTED THE CARMACKS DISTRICT IN THE LATE CRETACEOUS PERIOD? &amp; POTENTIALLY FULL OF SURPRISES 11. CARMACKS AREA RESEARCH HAS SHOWN 12. HUGE MAGMATIC EVENT OCCURRED AT CARMACKSThe hydrothermal event was similar in nature and size to that occurring today in Yellowstone Park Image from U.S. National Park Service webpage 13. HYDROTHERMAL ACTIVITY FORMED GOLD DEPOSITS The results of this study provide evidence for a regional metallogenic event related to late cretaceous shoshonitic volcanism, which resulted in thedevelopment of epithermal gold and base metal-rich veins transitional between low and high sulphidation types. The intense alteration and paleo-magnetic resetting of pre-existing country rocks provide evidence for a large scale hydrothermal system through the southern Dawson Rangedriven by the Carmacks Magmatic Event - Katherine Smuk 1999 14. GOLD SOURCE UNEXPLAINED The similarity in structural geometry from NW to SE through the Dawson Range Mineral Belt indicate the presence of a much larger system than previously recognized, howeverthe sources of the gold bearing fluids remain enigmatic- Bennett, Colpron, Burke Yukon Geological Survey July 2010 To date our understanding of the overprinting Late Cretaceous magmatic event is limited ..... - Bennett, Colpron, Burke - Yukon Geological Survey - July 2010 15. (HEAT) SOURCE WAS A MANTLE PLUMEImage from University of Georgia (Dept of Geology) webpage 16. CARMACKS MANTLE PLUME - RELATED GOLD MODEL In Yukon, gold mineralization is related to the Carmacks volcanic units and coeval hydrothermal alteration.A genetic model linking gold mineralization to hot spot related hydrothermal activity is suggested .New exploration models, based on this linkage, may assist in the identification of additional gold mineralization in Yukon. - S.T. Johnston et al - Yellowstone in Yukon - 1996 17.
