Interview with MotherlodeTV and CEO David D´Onoforio

On September 6, White Gold Corp. (V.WGO) put out a press release detailing the new discoveries at its Ryans Showing target. MotherlodeTV recently interviewed White Gold Corp. CEO, David DOnofrio, about this satellite deposit in the White Gold District, Yukon.

Why is this Ryans Showing discovery so significant?

The high grades seen at the Ryans Showing are very exciting - the first hole intersected 20.64 g/t Au over 6.10m with individual assays ranging from 7.07 g/t to 39.8 g/t Au. This high grade combined with the fact that the mineralization is just 83.82m from surface and 2 km from our existing Golden Saddle deposit with a 1.2 M oz high-grade resource, makes this target very interesting. This is one of many targets on the White Gold property that has the potential to be a satellite deposit to the Golden Saddle deposit. As they say, the best place to find a deposit is near an existing deposit. Furthermore, the 2km of land on trend between the Golden Saddle and Ryans Showing has only had very limited historical exploration. We have identified several targets in this area and are testing some this year. Lidar imagery, DIGHEM and IP-Resistivity has shown this structure to be open along strike and at depth, and demonstrates the potential for multiple mineralized structures.

What is reverse circulation drilling and why do you use it to test new targets?

Reverse Circulation (RC) drilling is a fast, light-weight and cost-effective method of generating high quality samples which are eligible for inclusion of a resource calculation. RC drilling achieves better penetration than Rotary Air Blast (RAB) drilling, but is cheaper than diamond drilling, allowing us to complete more drill holes within a given time and monetary budget. Additionally, the environmental impacts of RC drilling are minimal as the drill is mounted on rubber tracks that do not disturb the ground.

How did you select Ryans Showing for drill testing. What features did it have before you brought in the drills? (And, yes, I did read the paragraph on Ryans Showing. Could we go even more basic?)

Rather than jump directly to costly drilling, our team uses a systematic approach to exploration. Given our massive land package this is critical; its simply not feasible to drill every target on each of our properties. Ryans Showing had all of the positive indicators, including geophysical structure as mapped with Lidar, geochemical soil anomalies and rock samples with high-grade gold. The presence of all of these characteristics made the Ryans Showing a viable drill target and the drill results confirmed this. This measured approach allows us to stretch exploration dollars further and test more targets each season.

In the release, Jodie (Jodie Gibson, P.Geo. and Vice President of Exploration) mentions satellite deposits. How many of these have you identified and, ballpark, what size are you looking for?

There is an old adage, The best place to make a new discovery is near an existing discovery. We have seen this proven to be true over and over again, and we believe this to be the case on our White Gold property. One of the key ways were working to grow our existing 1.25M oz gold resource is through the exploration of the land surrounding the Golden Saddle for satellite deposits. There are 5-6 targets we are actively exploring right now, with many more in the queue. With the planned infrastructure improvements, including roads built directly to the White Gold property, even deposits of 250k-500k ounces become viable that are not very close to our existing resource. There are also opportunities to share infrastructure with nearby mines, such as Goldcorps mine which is scheduled to be in production by 2021, making satellite deposits more economical.

At this point, are you viewing Ryans Showing as part of the Golden Saddle system or are you considering it a stand-alone occurrence?

Ryans Showing is located 2 km away from the Golden Saddle deposit but is along the same trend, and while we believe it to part of the same system, it is a completely new mineralized zone. Ryans Showing is characterized by particularly high grades from shallow depths, with the discovery hole returning grades ranging from 7.07 g/t to 39.8 g/t Au, some of the highest ever in the Yukon. What is also very exciting is that the system is wide open and only very limited historical work has been done between the Golden Saddle and the Ryan Showing before this year. Additional results from this years exploration are pending and will be released in due course.

How much longer will White Gold be able to continue with this seasons exploration program - weather? Daylight?

Drilling was well ahead of schedule which allowed us to expand our budget and get more exploration work done than originally planned. This is well timed as it will avoid scrambling to finish the program as the days get shorter and temperatures drop. Having achieved our exploration goals we are looking forward to taking the winter to digest this seasons results and sharper our plans for next season. With that said, however, we are set up to and will continue to work as long as it makes economic sense to do so as we are following up on a number of exciting opportunities.

About White Gold Corp.
The Company owns a portfolio of 19,606 quartz claims across 30 properties covering over 390,000 hectares representing approximately 40% of the Yukons White Gold District. The Companys flagship White Gold property has a mineral resource of 960,970 ounces Indicated at 2.43 g/t gold and 262,220 ounces Inferred at 1.70 g/t gold as set forth in the technical report entitled Independent Technical Report for the White Gold Project, Dawson Range, Yukon, Canada, dated March 5, 2018, filed under the Companys profile on SEDAR. Mineralization on the Golden Saddle and Arc is also known to extend beyond the limits of the current resource estimate. Regional exploration work has also produced several other prospective targets on the Companys claim packages which border sizable gold discoveries including the Coffee project owned by Goldcorp Inc. (disclosed M&I gold resource of 4.1M oz) and Western Copper and Gold Corporations Casino project (disclosed P&P gold reserves of 8.9M oz Au and 4.5B lb Cu). The Company has outlined an aggressive exploration plan to further explore its properties. For more information visit

The analytical work for the 2018 program has been performed by Bureau Veritas Commodities Canada Ltd., an internationally recognized analytical services provider, at its Vancouver, British Columbia laboratory. Sample preparation was carried out at its Whitehorse, Yukon facility. All GT Probe, RAB, RC, and diamond core samples were prepared using procedure PRP70-250 (crush, split and pulverize 250 g to 200 mesh) and analyzed by method FA430 (30g fire assay with AAS finish) and AQ200 (0.5g, aqua regia digestion and ICP-MS analysis). Samples containing >10g/t Au were reanalyzed using method FA530 (30g Fire Assay with gravimetric finish). Metallic-screen analysis may also be utilized if coarse gold mineralization is encounter (FS600).

The work was completed using industry standard procedures, including a quality assurance/quality control (QA/QC) program consisting of the regular insertion of certified standards and blanks into the sample stream. The qualified person detected no significant QA/QC issues during review of the data.
