This report releases whole-rock geochemical assay results of 102 samples collected by the Geological Survey of Canada (GSC) and Yukon Geological Survey (YGS) from four Carlin-type
gold zones (Conrad, Sunrise, Osiris and Anubis) in the Nadaleen Trend, Yukon. The geological setting and characteristics of these gold zones can be found in Pinet and Sack (2019) and Pinet et al. (2020a and b). A single sample from the Venus zone,
east of the Nadaleen trend, is also released.
Most samples (N=99) were collected in 2016 and 2017 from drill cores. Four outcrop samples complement the dataset.
Samples were collected for three purposes: 1) 70 of the 77 samples collected by the
GSC aim to document geochemical variations along 5 borehole intervals (2 in Conrad, 1 in Sunrise and 2 in Anubis) that include both barren and mineralized rocks; 2) 14 samples collected by the YGS were re-assayed using the same analytical methods as
ATAC Resources, but with smaller sample intervals to refine understanding of which lithologies host gold; 3) 12 samples of igneous rocks collected by the YGS (including the one from the Venus zone) were analyzed to characterize their geochemical
