An underexplored greenstone belt that is right off the highway, could Dryden be a future mining hub?

Treasury Metals amalgamated 65 kms (330 km2) strike of the Wabigoon greenstone belt in late 2020. Although the belt has favourable geology and historic mines, there has been surprisingly little work done to unlock the exploration potential. Treasury Metals is currently working on a pre-feasibility study that includes mining the Goliath, Goldlund and Miller gold deposits from a centrally located mill in Wabigoon Ontario. Growth through exploration success could unlock additional value and be a game changer for the region. The exploration strategy for Treasury Metals integrates “back to basics” geological practices with deliberate target ranking. Treasury is excited to share some of the recent exploration success and the outlook for exploration going forward.
