The October Dome Gold Property was acquired from Bearing Resources in 2016. 100% owned by Commander.
The 100% owned October Dome gold property, is located in the “Quesnel Trough” in central BC, near the town of Likely. The October Dome property is located 10km north of Imperial Metals Corporation’s (“Imperial”) Mt. Polley porphyry copper gold mine property and 7 km to the southeast of Barkerville Gold Mines Ltd.’s QR skarn gold mine property.
The October Dome claims are subject to net smelter return (“NSR”) royalties of between 1.5% and 2%. The October Dome target is defined by a grid area of some 4.0 km by 1.1 km that has been surveyed by magnetic and Induced Polarization (“IP”) surveys and soil geochemistry.
In 2013 Bearing completed a 1,086-metre (six holes) diamond drill program targeting the northern end of a four-kilometre-long gold and arsenic soil anomaly that is coincident with an induced polarization (IP) chargeability anomaly. Holes OD-5 through OD-7 encountered diorite and monzonite intrusions within hornfelsed sediments and propylitized basalts. Hole OD-6 encountered a 15-metre core length of massive magnetite skarn with semi-massive pyrite layers accompanied by chalcopyrite, epidote and garnet at the sediment/basalt contact. A nine-metre section of this skarn assayed 0.7 gram per tonne gold, including a three-metre length that returned 1.3 g/t Au.
