About the Weebigee Project
Goldeye's 100% owned Weebigee Project is located 227 kilometres north of Red Lake in Northwestern Ontario and comprises 363 claims totaling approximately 6,000 hectares. The NW Arm claim block covers approximately 20% of the total project area and hosts the highest density of gold showings in the Sandy Lake Greenstone Belt.
During February and March 2014, Goldeye completed its planned phase 1 drill program at Weebigee. Twenty-three holes were drilled in the NW Arm area for a total of 2,219 m. The program confirmed the presence of significant gold mineralization at the Knoll, Bernadette and RvG4 Zones. Highlights included: 12.86 g/t Au over 6.85 metres core length in hole BK-14-03 (Bernadette), 12.45 g/t Au over 3.5 metres core length in hole BK-14-05 (Knoll), and 23.15 g/t Au over 3.97 metres core length in hole BK-14-18 (RvG4). Visible gold was noted in 50% of the drill holes.
The project is adjacent to Sandy Lake First Nation (population approx. 3,000) which has excellent infrastructure including an airport with daily direct flights to Winnipeg, Red Lake and Sioux Lookout and winter road connection to Red Lake. All weather access roads are located within one kilometre of the Knoll, Bernadette and RvG4 areas. In November 2013, Goldeye and Sandy Lake First Nation signed a comprehensive Exploration Agreement in regards to the project. Goldeye is pleased to have a strong, mutually beneficial relationship with the people of Sandy Lake First Nation.
