Aben Resources Ltd. (TSX-V: ABN) is a publicly traded Canadian GOLD exploration company with significant projects in BRITISH COLUMBIA, SASKATCHEWAN and the YUKON.
The Company's 23,000 hectares FORREST KERR GOLD PROJECT is located in the heart of a region called the GOLDEN TRIANGLE in northwestern BC. This region has hosted significant mineral deposits including: Pretium (Brucejack), Eskay Creek, Snip, Galore Creek, Copper Canyon, Schaft Creek, KSM, Granduc, Red Chris and more. Aben is acquiring a 100% interest in the Forrest Kerr Project located along the Forrest Kerr Fault which consists of a 40 km long north-south belt overlying rocks of the Hazelton and Stuhini Groups, a complex assemblage of volcanic accumulations with intervening sedimentary sequences which are host to significant gold deposits in the Golden Triangle region.
Aben is also acquiring up to an 80% interest in the 2,915 hectare CHICO GOLD PROJECT located 125 km east of La Ronge, Saskatchewan and 40 km south of Silver Standard Resources' Seabee / Santoy mine complex. Chico property highlights include the presence of a 1.5 km mineralized structural corridor which is confirmed by geophysical surveys, geological mapping and recent soil sample coverage which included numerous highly anomalous samples ranging up to 4.5 g/t gold. Sporadic historical drilling has been completed in the area and has returned high-grade intercepts. Rock samples collected in 2016 along this structural corridor ranged from trace quantities to 20.2 g/t gold. Recent work resulted in numerous high-priority drill targets being identified.
Aben also holds a 100% interest in the 18,314 acre JUSTIN GOLD PROJECT located in the southeast Yukon. The Justin property is located on the Tintina Gold Belt to the immediate southeast of Golden Predator's 3 Aces gold project. Previous drilling by Aben on the Justin Project intercepted 60m of 1.19 g/t gold including 21m of 2.47 g/t gold in the POW Zone. The geochemical signature of the mineralized zone is characterized by elevated Au, Bi, Cu, Mo and W supporting an Intrusion Related Gold System (IRGS).
