Ontario Portfolio Icon

Ontario Portfolio

Ontario Portfolio includes the Oakes, Pichete, Duc, and Pickle projects with high grade gold, large targets and past drilling that now can be expanded with further exploration on the 100% Riverside owned properties. This portfolio can potentially in the future generate more royalties as recently Riverside created 3 new royalties in its sale of the High Lake Greenstone Gold portfolio.

Riverside follows a three-pronged corporate strategy:

    • Geology and mineralization like Hardrock Mine complex
    • Sizeable property package of 5,680 hectares in the GGB
    • 8 Km long shear with 3 parallel zones, large scale, assays up to 32 g/t gold
    • 100% owned by Riverside & recent 12-hole, 1,700m drill program, 70% with gold intercepts
    • High-grade gold, over 1oz/t gold in historic drilling
    • Like Leitch Mine is less than 15km away and operated production levels >1 oz/t Au mine produced 800,000 oz Au
    • Near the Northern Empire Mill with existing infrastructure
    • Past drilling defined body and current programs expanding
    • High-grade gold and large district-scale structures with close proximity to neighboring mine
    • Geophysics surveys and previous drilling have identified gold, paving the way for continued drilling
    • The Duc project is situated directly west of former phosphate open pit mines that contain REE and critical metals.

Why Rare Earth Elements (Critical Metals) in Canada and the Timeliness:

Canada stands as a significant supplier of rare earth elements (REEs) in North America.

The province of British Columbia (BC) is a central area of focus for REE exploration and development.

These REEs are indispensable in various technologies, including electric vehicles, wind turbines, and smartphones.

Presently, China dominates the global REE production, accounting for approximately 90%.

Mining firms are actively seeking new REE sources worldwide.

Looking ahead, there is a strategic vision to expand and augment high-quality generative portfolios, extending from Mexico, through Ontario, and into British Columbia, Canada.

BC plays a major role as a North American hub for carbonatites, which are the primary source of REEs for China.

This positioning grants Canada and North America a reliable REE source that isn't dependent on China, ensuring locally sourced metals.

Southern BC offers an advantageous environment for REE development, with convenient travel distances, existing infrastructure, and the capacity for swift development of critical metals for resource and production.

Commodity: Rare Earth Elements

LOCATION: British Columbia,

Canada SIZE: 2538 ha. (25 Km2)

The Revel Project is located 20 km from the community of Seymour Arm within a highly prospective carbonatite belt north of Revelstoke, BC. The Project is 100% owned by Riverside with no underlying royalties or encumbrances. Access for mineral exploration is conducted from logging roads tied into secondary road access and generally accessible making the exploration cost effective as Riverside builds upon earlier exploration work and REE results.

The claims are partly located on Mount Grace on the northeast margin of Frenchman Cap Gneiss Dome comprising part of the Shuswap Metamorphic Terrain. These core gneisses are overlain by allochthonous cover rocks which host both extrusive and intrusive carbonatites and are part of the Monashee cover sequence. The property is centered on the Mount Grace syncline which is a northwest trending isoclinal fold. The regional map shows the Revel claim areas in the regional context with other known REE locations as part of a north-south trending belt where the Company has been working.
