The St. Anthony Gold Mine is located in the Kenora-Patricia Mining District of Ontario and encompasses four historical mining operations including the largest past-producing mine in the area, the St. Anthony. It produced 63,310 ounces of gold from 332,720 tons for an average grade of 5.95 grams per tonne (or 0.191 ounces per ton) up until World War II when gold production was halted.

The property consists of 233 contiguous claims totaling 4,224 hectares (42.24 sq. km). In addition to the historical underground workings over 20 gold (-silver) occurrences have been documented, some hosting visible gold, many of which have seen little if any exploration work for several decades. The St. Anthony Gold Mine is located 85 km east of the town of Sioux Lookout, or 13 km south of the smaller town of Savant Lake.
• A high-grade gold prospect with huge discovery potential.
• Located in a historic gold-producing region.
• Mineralized corridor with over 50 kilometers of combined strike length.
• 22 gold (+silver) occurrences, some hosting visible gold.
• Main mineralized structural corridor (contains the St. Anthony mine) has been traced over 10 km of strike with widths of up to 1.0 km
• Hosts two gold deposits (St. Anthony and Dawson White) and three high-grade target zones (Bucksaw, Couture Lake & Lucky Bones
The St. Anthony mine property covers much of the Sturgeon Lake Greenstone belt (a traditional Archean orogenic lode-gold belt). It has showings of high-grade gold in quartz veins, QFP dykes, stockwork, as well as peripheral disseminated gold zones. These are similar to other intrusive-hosted gold systems in the Superior Province such as Hammond Reef, Young Davidson, and parts of the Timmins and Kirkland Lake camps.
The main mineralized structural corridor – which contains the St. Anthony Mine- has been traced over 10 km of strike with widths of up to 1.0 km. It hosts two gold deposits; St. Anthony and Dawson White, and three high-grade target zones; the Bucksaw, Couture Lake, and Lucky Bones.
Lucky Bones: mineralized structural corridor extends over a +6.0 km strike with widths of 200-400 m (open for an additional 7 km to the south). Numerous shear zones and quartz veins (8-10 m widths). Many historic shafts, trenches, and pits along this trend
Bucksaw: this trend has been traced into the Dawson White deposit a further 1.4 km to the south. Past sampling and trenching returned values of up to 24.1 g/t Au. Prospecting in 2011 identified many historic trenches located 400 to 600 m south.
Dawson White: with grades of up to 12.95 g/t Au and additional pits in shear zones a further 2.5 km south with grab sample grades of up to 19.6 g/t Au.
St Anthony Gold Corp. is continuing its Phase One diamond drilling program on the St Anthony gold mine property located in the Kenora-Patricia Mining District, Ontario. The drilling is producing some significant highlights including Hole SA21-18, the fourth hole of the program and the second twinned hole which is intersecting:
The two main zones at St. Anthony consist of Zone 1 and Zone 2. Zone 1 is broadly defined over a strike length of 350 metres, with a minimum depth of 200 metres and a true width averaging about 8 metres, based on past production. Historical production focused solely on the vein material and not the adjacent mineralized wallrock.
St. Anthony Gold Corp. is advancing a phased exploration program over three known and impressive strike lengths of 20 km, 21 km, and 12 km respectively in the St. Anthony Mine area. The first phase was initiated in June 2021 with the first of a planned 15-hole diamond drill program targeting 5000 meters.
The development plan follows a succession strategy that began with in-fill drilling of known resources designed to expand the mine area. The exploration targets were selected based on a combination of several determining parameters that include past production, previous drill assays, alteration mapping, and structural interpretation of the St. Anthony mine area.
• In-fill and expansion drilling of the St. Anthony mine area
• Expansion drilling of the Dawson White deposit
• Expanded focus on the Bucksaw, Couture Lake and Lucky Bones areas
The drilling contractor carrying out the phased program is Full Force Diamond Drilling Ltd. – a B.C. based contractor that has completed over 90 projects since 2004. All drill core samples are sent to ALS Global of Thunder Bay, Ontario for gold (Au-AA23) and multi-element (ME-MS61) analysis. In addition, spectral mineralogy data is collected from selected samples through the mineralized envelope to assist in vectoring to additional gold-bearing structures.
St. Anthony Gold Corp. applies industry-standard quality assurance/quality control procedures to the program. Certified reference materials, blanks, and field duplicates are included in all drill core batches sent to the laboratory.
