Attention to this area occurred following a review of an unpublished report completed in the mid 1980’s during active mining at Blackdome. Heavy mineral samples from several small drainages within the area of the claims returned very high gold values with some exceeding 10 g/t Au. A subsequent search of assessment records indicates that part of the current claims was staked a few years later and re-sampled confirming the initial results with heavy mineral sample results of up to 20 g/t Au being obtained. The assessment report indicates that only four rock samples were collected and it appears that follow-up was minimal.
Koster Dam is road accessible and located in a semiarid landscape at an average elevation of 1,200 metres.
Significance in Koster Dam is two fold:
1.) It appears that a significant geochemical gold anomaly has been identified but left untested.
2.) The claims fall within the Cretaceous/Eocene Age Nechako Basin which has recently become a significant gold environment with targets including the Newton Hill occurrence located 90 kilometres to the west, the Blackwater Davidson occurrence located 220 kilometres to the northwest and the Blackdome Mine located 18 kilometres to the south.
Cariboo Rose intends to start it evaluation of Koster Dam with a program focusing on prospecting and detailed rock and sediment sampling.
