The Tango property consists of 8 claims owned 100% by ALX totaling 13,709 hectares. The Tango property lies in the Mudjatik Domain in an area that is prospective for nickel, copper and cobalt mineralization. Based on previous exploration, the Tango property has the potential to host polymetallic mineral deposits.
Exploration for uranium in the 1970s discovered showings of gold, nickel, cobalt and copper in outcrop samples. Airborne electromagnetic surveys detected conductors that have never been followed up. To date there has been no known holes drilled despite a number of anomalous rock, soil and lake sediment samples collected throughout the Tango property.
- Approximately 130 km southwest of the past-producing Key Lake uranium mine.
- Approximately 230 km west-northwest of the Seabee Gold Operation mine.
Golden Eagle Oil and Gas Ltd. carried out surface prospecting on Tango as part of a wider regional exploration program for uranium and base metals. Lake sediment samples taken by Golden Eagle in the Tango area showed anomalous values of nickel, copper, cobalt and zinc.Grab samples from a historical showing known as the Sunlite Trench returned the following values*:
Golden Eagle re-trenched and re-sampled a gold-bearing quartz vein at the Sunlite Trench and recorded a gold value of 18.0 grams/tonne in a grab sample, along with 0.16% copper. Further work was recommended, but was not carried out and the mineral permit lapsed in 1984. Other precious metals explorers carried out surface sampling for gold and follow-up ground geophysical programs, but by 1992 exploration ceased without any drilling having been carried out within the area of the property.
