The Coffee Project is located in west-central Yukon, approximately 130km south of Dawson City. The property can currently be accessed by the Yukon River, helicopter or airplane, and once on site, a 23km all-season road connects the Coffee barge landing site, airstrip, camp and gold deposits.
The Coffee Gold Deposits are part of a Late Cretaceous or younger structurally-controlled hydrothermal gold system. Steeply-dipping gold-bearing faults and shear zones which crosscut all lithologies on the project and are often spatially associated with felsic to intermediate dykes are characterized by intense fracturing and brecciation interpreted as multiply-reactivated, high-energy, high fluid flux conduits. Mineralization is accompanied by addition of arsenian pyrite, silica-sericite-carbonate-clay alteration and arsenic-antimony enrichment. Gold zones are not diluted by post-mineral dykes or truncated/displaced significantly by faults, thus gold mineralization is interpreted to be late within the geological history of the deposit. The deposit is variably oxidized, with oxidation penetrating along and down the mineralized structures via ingress of meteoric fluids, thus creating an extensive channelized oxidization profile deeper than 300m in some structures.
