I am currently working on a gold-rich porphyry deposit in the Alaskan Range of SW Alaska, USA. The Whistler Porphyry-Au deposit has a (2008) defined 43-101 resource of 1.31 Moz indicated, and 4.44 Moz inferred Au equivalent and is 100% controlled by Kiska Metals Corporation. My project will focus on understanding the genesis of this deposit in the context of local and regional exploration potential.
