Trailbreaker Resources Mobilizes for Maiden Drill Program at Eakin Creek Property, South-Central BC
VANCOUVER, British Columbia, May 23, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Trailbreaker Resources Ltd. (TBK.V) (“Trailbreaker” or “the Company”) is pleased to announce that it has mobilized for the maiden diamond drill program at its 100%-owned Eakin Creek gold property in south-central British Columbia (BC).
Drilling is planned to commence on May 24th, 2023 and will consist of up to 2000 metres of diamond drilling. The program has been designed to test coincident induced polarization (IP) and geochemical anomalies outlined during the 2022 exploration program (see September 14, 2022 news release), as well as the numerous surficial gold showings found within these anomalies.
Daithi Mac Gearailt, CEO of Trailbreaker, commented: “This is an exciting program, not just for Trailbreaker shareholders, but for the area in general. This is a highly underexplored part of British Columbia that has great geology and serious potential for a new big discovery. I know our neighbours are watching us closely and wishing us luck in the drill bit.”
The Eakin Creek property is located 100 kilometres north of Kamloops, BC and can be accessed via Highway #24 and by well-maintained forest service roads (see Location map). The claims cover 1,610 hectares of prospective ground that drains into placer gold-bearing Eakin Creek.
The target was initially acquired due to: the historic ‘G Occurrence’ found on the highway in one of the few exposed outcroppings on the property, a field of gold-bearing boulder samples (inferred to be local), and a grouping of some of the highest gold-in-till values from regional till sampling in BC.
During 2022, Trailbreaker performed a 10.75 line-kilometre IP survey, a 302-sample Mobile Metal Ion (MMI) soil survey, and prospecting. A 1,000 x 600-metre area was defined as having an Au-Ag-Cu-Sb (gold-silver-copper-antimony) soil anomaly coincident with an IP geophysical anomaly. Also, widespread gold mineralization in bedrock and float samples was identified. The 2023 drill program has been designed to thoroughly test this area.

Message from the President
“This isn’t the first maiden drill program the Trailbreaker team has conducted, nor will it be the last. The Eakin Creek story exemplifies our model as a project generator and developer. We have done our due diligence to de-risk the project and show the area has real potential to host a sizable gold deposit. We also have a pile of other exciting developments in the works, so stay tuned. It’s going to be a very busy year for Trailbreaker!”
