The Whitehorse property — a past-producer with Hudbay; 10Mt at 1.5% Cu — comprises 314 contiguous claims covering approximately 5,380 hectares characterized by 30 known prospects within a 35 km x 5 km area. 

A number of those prospects have produced shallow, high-grade copper results with limited systematic drilling away from the existing historical pits. 

Gladiator has committed to drilling an initial ~3,000 meters of diamond core targeted at Cowley Park — an advanced high-grade copper prospect area at Whitehorse — to lay the foundations of establishing a future copper mineral resource. 

The Cowley Park prospect has produced a number of high-grade intercepts from historical drilling, including highlights of 10.67 meters at 6.93% copper from 85 meters, 23.16 meters of 3.19% copper from 80 meters, and 18.44 meters at 4.42% copper from 56 meters.

The Cowley Park prospect has produced a number of high-grade intercepts from historical drilling.

Gladiator’s upcoming drill program — slated to commence in mid-April — will focus on confirming and extending mineralization at the Cowley Park prospect area. Importantly, this is an area that hasn’t seen any modern, systematic drilling in over forty years, which, likewise, holds true for the entire 53 sq km Whitehorse property. 

Additionally, Gladiator — which is exceptionally well-structured with only ~38 million shares outstanding fully diluted — is establishing a core processing facility at Whitehorse to process and log drill core, including an estimated 10,000 meters of uncut core from previous drilling campaigns by H. Coyne and Sons Ltd.

That forthcoming data should prove invaluable in mapping out future exploration programs, including drilling, at Whitehorse. 

And it certainly doesn’t hurt having a large-scale, past-producing, high-grade copper asset in a Tier-1 mining jurisdiction such as Whitehorse, Yukon, with advanced infrastructure in place… as you’re about to discover.
