Our crew recently traveled to one of North America’s most famous gold camps: Ontario’s Red Lake Gold Mining District. Those who’ve driven through the Lake of the Woods in Western Ontario know the beauty this region beholds, particularly in fall. A medley of yellow, orange, and red leaves line the highway from Winnipeg to Red Lake.

As the leaves on the white birch trees of Red Lake turn from green to gold, veterans of the mining industry know there is something that shines even brighter, beneath the dirt… and it’s exactly around this time of year when the results from summer drill programs are revealed.

For the residents and miners of small-town Red Lake, gold is never far from their minds. It’s been like this for almost a century. Gold mining, in many ways, has dictated the flow of life in Red Lake ever since the precious metal was first discovered on its shores around 1925.

Since then, the Red Lake region has been home to many a profitable mine, with approximately 28 mines producing roughly 29 million ounces of gold, and counting…

Red Lake Resurgence in 2019/2020

The largest and most prolific gold mine in Red Lake history is aptly named the Campbell Red Lake Mine, which still produces gold today. Impressively, the mine has produced roughly 23 million ounces of gold at an average grade around 15 grams per ton. With this in mind, it’s understandable why many industry pros view Red Lake as the ‘high-grade gold mining capital of Canada.’

New Discovery Breathes New Life

Towards the end of 2018 and into 2019, a new discovery took centre stage in Red Lake, breathing life into a community that had become used to majors running the show: junior explorer Great Bear Resources’ famed Dixie Project discovery.

Great Bear’s share price soared from a low in 2018 of around CAD$0.50 per share to a high above CAD$19 in 2020.


Typically, the exploration companies we take on as clients and feature aren’t based on area plays or staking rushes alone. We like to introduce companies with strong management teams, exploration upside potential, enough capital in the bank to complete significant work programs, and, if possible, a rich body of drilling history.

We believe we’ve found an example of one such company with projects in the Red Lake region of Ontario…

In addition to operating in the prolific region for quite some time, this junior explorer has notable historical drill results on one of its projects. Known as Newman Todd, this project has 55,000 meters of historical drill results. Approximately 41% of those drill holes intersected greater than 10 grams per ton gold over various intervals…

That junior explorer is Trillium Gold Mines (TSXV: TGM) (OTCQX: TGLDF).

Trillium Gold

Having raised approximately CAD$13 million earlier this month (units priced at CAD$1.70 for non-flow through and CAD$1.90 for flow-through), Trillium Gold Mines Inc. (“Trillium” or the “Company”) is well-financed to conduct an extensive exploration work program at its Red Lake projects.

Unlike juniors who are new to Red Lake, Trillium Gold Mines Inc. (formerly Confederation Minerals Ltd.) has been working in the region since approximately 2011. What’s more, the Company has been acquiring interests in new projects in the Red Lake area in recent months.

After its shares rose to a high of CAD$2.78 on August 5, 2020, Trillium’s stock price has corrected, last trading as of this writing at CAD$1.77. Trillium has a market cap of approximately CAD$52.56 million (according to Bloomberg). Compared to many junior explorers with a similar treasury balance, Trillium has significantly less shares outstanding.

Trillium Gold’s Exploration Projects

We’re going to focus on three key projects Trillium has interests in in the greater Red Lake area: Newman Todd, Gold Centre, and Leo. Let’s begin with the Company’s flagship project – Newman Todd – which our crew had the opportunity to visit…

To get to the Newman Todd project, our crew hopped on a pontoon boat for a scenic, one-hour cruise across Red Lake (there is also an all-season road that takes ~2 hours to traverse).

Pictured above: The Pinnacle Digest crew and members of Trillium’s team en route to the Newman Todd project. Trillium has an 83.5% ownership interest in the Newman Todd project.

Upon arrival to Newman Todd Southwest (formerly known as the Rivard project), we were met lakeside by local resident and long-time miner, Danny Rivard. His family, after which the property was originally named, had been small-scale mining on the claims for decades. Mr. Rivard, now in his 60s, began mining with his father when he was just a kid…

After getting to know the Rivard family, Trillium signed an agreement to acquire the Rivard Property in August of 2020 (click here to read the terms and details of the agreement to acquire the Rivard Property). Rivard now makes up the southwest portion of the overall Newman Todd project.

Russell Star, CEO of Trillium Gold, described the importance of the acquisition in an August 2020 press release,

“The Rivard Property adds another significant piece to our exploration package in Red Lake. The property includes an on-strike extension to the Newman Todd Zone (“NTZ”) to the southwest of our current land holding and adds a new exploration dimension with the high grade gold veins that have been mined on surface by the Rivard Family to the northwest in the footwall of the NTZ.”

Trillium signed the agreement for the Rivard project for a few reasons. The fact it lies adjacent and on-strike to the Company’s flagship project, known as Newman Todd, is perhaps the most important.

Newman Todd – The Reason We’re Here

From historical drill results, Trillium states that “approximately 41% of drill holes intercepted greater than 10 grams per ton gold over various intervals” at Newman Todd Northeast. Furthermore, while previous exploration discovered over 20 high-grade zones, the Company believes the “property is underexplored with multiple untested zones and new geological targets emerging.” Additionally, Newman Todd Northeast has “only 2.2 km of mineralized strike-length tested to date, remaining open at either end and at depth.”

And despite all the previous historical drilling at Newman Todd, Trillium has yet to “drill deep” on the project. This is an important distinction to make as gold mineralization at many of Ontario’s gold camps runs deep, as shown in the chart below.

Trillium’s Newman Todd SW and NE Remain Open and Untested at Depth

On October 6, 2020, the Company announced it had intersected 15.41 grams per tonne gold over 7.05m at Newman Todd.

Below are the highlights from the press release:

  • “Confirmation of high-grade gold mineralization in the west Red Lake area, a region historically under-explored, showing Red Lake-style gold mineralization
  • Hole NT20-169 intersected 15.41 g/t gold (Au) over 7.05m , starting at 226m downhole in the Newman Todd Zone in geology favourable for hosting high-grade gold mineralization
  • Hole NT20-167 intersected 8.63 g/t Au over 6.55m
  • Ongoing testing of mineralized and structural controls to expand previously known areas of mineralization
  • First drilling and batch of assays (since 2013) from the phase one drill program”


The last point may be the most significant. These are the first holes drilled on Newman Todd since 2013.

The Company continues in the aforementioned press release,

“assays are pending for the remaining five holes.”

We are expecting the results from these holes in the coming weeks.

Trillium goes on to note,

“Drilling from 2013 and earlier had mostly focused on testing the zone by targeting the footwall by drilling to the southeast, potentially undercutting much of the targeted zone. Newman Todd is a highly prospective target with 41% of the 165 historic drill holes having intervals of greater than 10 g/t gold over various lengths.”

And that,

“In addition, nearly all drilling has been to depths less than 400m. The Red Lake Camp is famously known for high grade gold mineralization at depth with Evolution Mining’s Red Lake Gold Mine currently reaching depths of several thousands of feet. Trillium will continue to test various drill orientations in order to develop a comprehensive understanding of the mineralization and structural controls and test the depth potential of the Newman Todd Zone.”

Click here to read the full press release.

Another takeaway from this press release:

“The early success of the program, prior to the receipt of the assays for the remaining holes has provided enough encouragement to restart drilling, expected to commence shortly.”

Trillium's core shack

With approximately CAD$13 million raised in recent weeks, Trillium has the capital to continue working the project. It’s worth noting that in the Red Lake region, explorers can drill almost year-round, unlike many areas in Northern Canada.

Although it’s the flagship, not all of Trillium’s exploration budget will be going to Newman Todd…

Gold Centre – In the Heart of the Highest-Grade Gold Camp in North America

On August 31, 2020, Trillium announced it had signed a binding joint venture agreement with Rupert Resources Ltd. to acquire an 80% ownership in the Gold Centre property. According to the Company, the Gold Centre project is “adjacent to and on strike with Evolution Mining’s Campbell-Red Lake Mine which has produced 23.8 M ounces of gold at an average grade of greater than ½ ounce gold per ton (or greater than 15.6 g/t).”

Much like Newman Todd, Gold Centre has yet to be drilled relatively deep.

Regarding its exploration plans for Gold Centre, Trillium announced at the end of August,

“Trillium Gold is planning a strategic and targeted exploration program for the Gold Centre project. A key component of the C$2 million drilling program is deep oriented core drilling (2 holes of 1,000m) to test for the down-plunge extension of the High Grade Zone (“HGZ”) currently in production at the neighboring Evolution Mining’s Red Lake mine. With success, Trillium will have proven that this prolific gold zone continues on to the Gold Centre property and is only about 350m from the current operating areas of Evolution’s mine, as illustrated in Figure 2.”

Leo – Greenfield Exploration

Compared to Trillium’s other projects, Leo (ownership 100% — click here for acquisition terms) is massive at 20,735 hectares.

Map of Trillium Gold's Leo Project
Source: Trillium Gold Mines Corporate Presentation dated October 2020

The Leo project is located roughly 15 km south of Great Bear’s aforementioned Dixie project, which can be seen on the map above. While it’s road accessible and there are multiple trails across the property, Leo is a true greenfield exploration project.

According to the Company, the Leo project has “gold mineralization hosted in favourable rock types and structures” and that “historical work identified multiple gold zones at surface that are yet to be tested.”

Trillium intends to apply Artificial Intelligence technology at Leo to highlight exploration targeting through data integration and pattern recognition. Moreover, field work at Leo will include prospecting and mapping, surface sampling, ground/drone magnetic surveys to refine regional geophysical anomalies and create drill targets.

Cautionary Note Regarding Forward-Looking Information: This report contains “forward-looking information” within the meaning of Canadian securities legislation (collectively, “forward-looking statements”). All statements, other than statements of historical fact, that address activities, events or developments that Trillium or Pinnacle Digest believes, expects or anticipates will or may occur in the future are forward-looking statements. Such forward-looking statements also include, but are not limited to, statements regarding: the planned exploration of the projects in which Trillium holds an interest, including prospective targets; the growth potential of any deposits or trends; the size, quality and timing of Trillium’s exploration; potential mineral resource estimates at Trillium’s projects or properties; the estimation of mineral resources; the potential of the Company’s properties; future trends; mineral trends; any comparisons of Trillium’s projects to other mineral projects not owned by the Company; the potential of making a new discovery; Trillium’s future financial position and budgets; use of capital in the Company’s treasury; estimates of Trillium’s project economics; the future price of minerals, particularly gold; funding availability; investor sentiment; conclusions of economic evaluation; capital expenditures; success of exploration activities; currency exchange rates; government regulation of mining and exploration operations; taxes; the size, significance, and duration of the current gold cycle; Trillium having the right mix of people, assets, and location for success; potential acquisitions of mineral properties by Trillium; Trillium fulfilling contractual agreements; the Company receiving assay results and the timing of any assay results being released to the public; the quality of Trillium’s technical team and contractors; Trillium being able to define a meaningful gold asset or deposit at its project(s); the value of Trillium and its project(s); the ease of which visible gold (“VG”) can be found on Trillium’s project(s); drilling costs; step out drilling on the Company’s project(s) potentially adding value; Trillium being able to drill year round at its Red Lake projects; the timing of receiving permits and necessary approvals to drill; past work programs on the Rivard project not fully revealing the project’s potential; Trillium being able to use artificial intelligence to better optimize future exploration programs; opportunity costs; the timing and frequency of Trillium releasing news; Red Lake being one of the cheapest regions to find high-grade, meaningful gold deposits; Trillium’s assets being underexplored; current fiscal and monetary policy creating an environment where gold can thrive; gold explorers having leverage to the price of gold, and environmental risks.

Relating to exploration, the identification of exploration targets and any implied future investigation of such targets on the basis of specific geological, geochemical and geophysical evidence or trends are future-looking and subject to a variety of possible outcomes which may or may not include the discovery, or extension, or termination of mineralization. Further, areas around known mineralized intersections or surface showings may be marked or described by wording such as “open”, “untested”, “possible extension” or “exploration potential” or by symbols such as “?”. Such wording or symbols should not be construed as a certainty that mineralization continues or that the character of mineralization (e.g. grade or thickness) will remain consistent from a known and measured data point. The key risks related to exploration in general are that chances of identifying economical reserves are extremely small.

Often, but not always, these forward-looking statements can be identified by the use of forward-looking terminology such as “expects”, “expected”, “budgeted”, “targets”, “forecasts”, “intends”, “anticipates”, “scheduled”, “estimates”, “aims”, “will”, “believes”, “projects”, “could”, “would”, and similar expressions (including negative variations) which by their nature refer to future events.

By their very nature, forward-looking statements are subject to numerous risks and uncertainties, some of which are beyond Trillium’s control. These statements should not be read as guarantees of future performance or results. Forward-looking statements are based on the opinions and estimates of Trillium’s management or Pinnacle Digest at the date the statements are made. In this report, assumptions and estimates may have been made regarding, among other things, the presence of, and continuity of, mineralization at Trillium’s projects not being fully determined; the availability of personnel, machinery and equipment at estimated prices and within estimated delivery times; currency exchange rates; metals sales prices and exchange rates; tax rates and royalty rates applicable to the Company’s project(s); present and future business strategies and the environment in which the Company will operate in the future; anticipated costs; general business and economic conditions not changing in a material adverse manner; governmental and other approvals required to conduct the Company’s planned exploration activities being available on reasonable terms and in a timely manner; Trillium fulfilling contractual agreements; capital requirements; the availability of acceptable financing, and success in realizing proposed operations and objectives.

While such estimates and assumptions are considered reasonable by Pinnacle Digest, they are inherently subject to significant business, economic, competitive and regulatory uncertainties and risks.

Forward-looking statements are subject to a number of risks and uncertainties that may cause the actual results of Trillium to differ materially from those discussed/written in the forward-looking statements in this report and, even if such actual results are realized or substantially realized, there can be no assurance that they will have the expected consequences to, or effects on, Trillium. Risk factors that could cause actual results to vary materially from results anticipated by such forward-looking statements in this report include, but are not limited to: unanticipated developments in business and economic conditions in the principal markets for commodities and/or financial instruments; changes in the supply, demand, and prices for gold and other commodities; the actual results of exploration activities; conclusions of economic evaluations; uncertainty in the estimation of mineral resources; changes in economic and political stability in jurisdictions where Trillium has business interests; environmental liabilities, risks, hazards and regulatory requirements; adverse weather conditions; legal disputes, including title disputes or claims; increased infrastructure and/or operating costs; labour and employment matters; government regulation; the need for additional financing and that the Company may not be able to raise additional funds when necessary; operational risks associated with mineral exploration; reliance on key personnel; competition; dilution; changes in project parameters as plans continue to be refined; variations in ore grade and recovery rates; potential revocation or change in permit requirements and project approvals; conflicts of interests; limitations of insurance coverage; equipment material and skilled technical workers; risks and uncertainties relating to the interpretation of exploration results; risks related to the inherent uncertainty of mineral exploration; cost estimates and the potential for unexpected costs and expenses; the Company may lose or abandon its property interests or may fail to receive necessary licences and permits; the potential for delays in exploration or development activities or the completion of geologic reports or studies; the uncertainty of profitability based upon the Company’s history of losses; risks associated with failure to maintain community acceptance, agreements and permissions (generally referred to as “social licence”); risks relating to obtaining and maintaining all necessary government permits, approvals and authorizations relating to the continued exploration and development of the Company’s projects; risks related to current global financial conditions; the impact of viruses and diseases on the Company’s ability to operate; the volatility of Trillium’s common share price and trading volume, and other risks pertaining to the mining and exploration industry as well as those factors discussed in the section entitled “Risk Factors” in Trillium’s Annual and Quarterly Reports and associated financial statements, Management Information Circulars and other disclosure documents filed with Canadian securities regulators.

Investigate and fully understand all risks before investing.

PinnacleDigest.com is often paid editorial fees for its writing and the dissemination of material. The clients (including Trillium Gold Mines Inc.) represented by PinnacleDigest.com are typically junior companies that pose a much higher risk to investors than established companies. When investing in speculative stocks such as Trillium it is possible to lose your entire investment over time or even quickly. Trillium is not an appropriate investment for most investors.

Set forth below is our disclosure and compensation relating to Trillium Gold Mines Inc. as of October 22, 2020:

Maximus Strategic Consulting Inc., owner of PinnacleDigest.com, has been paid CAD$150,000 plus GST to provide online advertisement coverage for Trillium for a six-month online marketing agreement. Trillium paid for this coverage. The coverage includes, but is not limited to, the creation and distribution of reports authored by PinnacleDigest.com about Trillium (reports such as this one), as well as display advertisements and news distribution about the Company on our website and in our newsletter. We (Maximus Strategic Consulting Inc.) own shares of Trillium. We intend to sell every share we own of Trillium for our own profit. All shares Maximus Strategic Consulting Inc. currently owns or may purchase in the future of Trillium will be sold without notice to PinnacleDigest.com’s subscribers or the general public. Maximus Strategic Consulting Inc. benefits from price and trading volume increases in Trillium, and is therefore extremely biased when it comes to the Company.

Junior exploration companies such as Trillium are very risky investments: Trillium is not an appropriate investment for most investors as it is highly speculative. Risks and uncertainties respecting junior exploration companies are generally disclosed in the annual financial or other filing documents of those and similar companies as filed with the relevant securities commissions, and should be reviewed by any reader of this report. Visit www.sedar.com to review important disclosure documents for Trillium.

It is highly probable that Trillium will need to raise additional capital in the future to fund its operations, resulting in dilution to its shareholders.

Trillium does not have any producing assets, and therefore it has no cash-flow and operates at a loss. Trillium may never take any of its projects into production. Even if Trillium is able to take any of its projects into production, there is no certainty the Company will generate a profit. Further exploration and development work, economic studies, and other types of studies will be required before Trillium is able to make a decision on production. Furthermore, past historical and/or current production in the region of Trillium’s projects is not indicative of future production potential for the Company. Any comparisons to other companies or projects may not be valid or come into effect. Mineralization on nearby properties is not necessarily indicative of mineralization on Trillium’s properties.

Cautionary Note Concerning Estimates of Mineral Resources: This report uses the terms “Measured”, “Indicated” and “Inferred” Resources. United States investors are advised that while such terms are recognized and required by Canadian regulations, the United States Securities and Exchange Commission does not recognize them. “Inferred Mineral Resources” have a great amount of uncertainty as to their existence, and as to their economic and legal feasibility. It cannot be assumed that all or any part of an Inferred Mineral Resource will ever be upgraded to Measured and Indicated categories through further drilling, or into Mineral Reserves, once economic considerations are applied. Under Canadian rules, estimates of Inferred Mineral Resources may not form the basis of feasibility or other economic studies. Readers are cautioned not to assume that all or any part of Measured or Indicated Mineral Resources will ever be converted into Mineral Reserves. Mineral Resources that are not Mineral Reserves do not have demonstrated economic viability. Mineral Resource Estimates do not account for mineability, selectivity, mining loss and dilution. The estimate of Mineral Resources may be materially affected by environmental, permitting, legal, title, taxation, socio-political, marketing, or other relevant issues.
