Arakaka Gold Project

Project Highlights

  • Located within a major mineralised, complex structural corridor with  over 10km strike potential.
  • Highly prospective, regional scale exploration project with a number of mineralised zones and over 25 priority targets identified.
  • Previously held in a JV with Newmont. First class data sets.
  • Arakaka Trend is principally underlain by diorite bodies intruded into carbonaceous shales and mudstones.  
  • Multiple structural characteristics of the region indicates it is affected by high strain.  
  • Arakaka Trend is one of the oldest and most prolific gold districts in the Guyana Shield.
  • Numerous high priority, untested targets based upon gold anomalism in soil geochemisty.

The Arakaka Gold Project is located in the North West Mining District of Guyana.  It is only 1 hour drive from port facilities at Port Kaituma and a 15 minute drive from a commercial airport at Matthews Ridge.  The project is approximately 170kms from Georgetown, the capital of Guyana.
The project is supported by an established camp with and has good vehicle access.

Arakaka was previously a joint venture project, formed in 2005 between StrataGold and Newmont Overseas Exploration Limited, a subsidiary of Newmont Mining Corporation.

The district has been popular with local placer miners for the past 100 years, but until recently, the region has not been systematically explored using modern techniques. StrataGold and Newmont were one of the first to implement an exploration program which included regional and detailed stream sediment and soil geochemistry surveys, induced polarization ground geophysical surveys, detailed structural mapping, prospecting and trenching.

The Arakaka Trend is principally underlain by diorite bodies intruded into carbonaceous shales and mudstones.  Multiple structural characteristics of the region indicates it is affected by high strain.
