About the Unga Gold Project
The 100% controlled Unga Gold Project is a low to intermediate-sulfidation epithermal district located within the Alaskan Peninsula on adjacent Unga and Popof Islands, approximately 950 km southwest of Anchorage, Alaska. The 240-km2 property contains numerous volcanic-hosted, structurally-controlled and disseminated gold-silver mineral occurrences localized along at least two (2) regional structures (Shumagin Trend and Apollo-Sitka trends), each measuring approximately 9.5km long. High-grade gold zones drilled or identified at surface occur within dilation zones along the regional and/or subsidiary structures and are the main exploration target-type for the project. The Shumagin Gold Zone is only one of several noteworthy gold-silver structures found on Redstar’s Unga Gold Project and is a high-priority exploration target.
