The Klondike placer gold fields have produced approximately 20 million oz of gold since discovery in August 1896. Over one hundred and twenty years later, the bedrock sources of these gold-in-gravel deposits are finally being discovered.
The Lone Star Project has been focused on exploration at the headwaters of Eldorado and Bonanaza Creeks, and has three principal zones of exploration activity.
The Lone Star Zone is centered along Lone Star ridge, the site of the original Lone Star Mine (1912-1914) and other short underground workings called Pioneer and Parnell. On the south side of Lone Star ridge is the Nugget-to-Buckland Zone, and across Eldorado Creek to the south, along the next ridge is the Violet Zone.
