Trailbreaker Resources Commences Surface Exploration at Castle Rock Property, Northern Vancouver Island, BC


VANCOUVER, British Columbia, May 27, 2024 – Trailbreaker Resources Ltd. (TBK.V) (“Trailbreaker” or “the Company”) is pleased to announce the commencement of the 2024 surficial exploration program at our Castle Rock property on northern Vancouver Island, British Columbia (BC).

The program will consist of follow-up exploration on the results obtained during 2023 (see Figure 1 below, and November 27th, 2023 news release) as well as reconnaissance exploration on unexplored ground.

Figure 1: Areas of focus for the 2024 exploration program. Soil geochemical anomalies and highlighted rock samples from the 2023 surface sampling program are overlain on geological and structural interpretations of the regional airborne magnetic survey. Sampling defined a 3 km gold-in-soil trend which includes the Heart, Watchtower, and Kokummi zones. The 2024 exploration program will follow up on results at the newly discovered Watchtower and Kokummi zones, the historic Flan zone, and will investigate unexplored ground along trend to the northwest.

During 2023, a 3 km gold-in-soil geochemical anomaly was defined along a magnetic lineament. This anomaly includes the Heart zone (historic chip sample of 2.0 g/t Au [gold] over 30 metres1) as well as the newly discovered Kokummi and Watchtower zones. Interpretation of airborne magnetic data indicates that mineralization is associated with northwest-trending structures splaying off from the Kokummi granodioritic stock in the southwest property area. This interpretation suggests that much of the property with mineral potential has not yet been explored.

The 2024 exploration program will consist of approximately 400 soil geochemical samples combined with prospecting of the Watchtower and Kokummi zones, in an effort to expand and define the geochemical signature.

Reconnaissance exploration will also be conducted on unexplored ground along trend to the northwest, as well as on the Flan zone. The Flan zone includes a historic showing that has returned assays of up to 135 g/t Au in boulders2. Exploration in 2023 confirmed high-grade gold mineralization, with assays up to 42.1 g/t Au and 1.93% Cu (copper). As well, basalt-hosted semi-massive pyrite-chalcopyrite-pyrrhotite mineralization sampled in outcrop returned assays up to 3.1 g/t Au. It is believed that this outcrop-hosted mineralization is associated with the float samples, and that higher-grade material is likely not exposed due to vegetation and/or till cover.

Message from the President

“The Castle Rock property represents an exciting opportunity for new mineral discoveries in an area with little historic exploration. We are eager to follow-up on the 2023 results and to continue advancing the project. There’s a lot of unexplored ground here with high potential for new discoveries.”
