Straightup Resources Inc. has entered into an agreement with Tri Origin Exploration Ltd. to acquire a digital database of compilation and field exploration data for the RLX North and RLX South properties.

The Company has recognized the value in the extensive exploration data and compilation work completed by Tri Origin between 2004 and 2014 on the RLX Properties. The exploration programs completed by Tri Origin consisted of geological mapping, overburden geochemistry, airborne and ground geophysical surveying, and diamond drilling. Exploration completed by Tri Origin has identified mafic volcanic rocks including high iron tholeiitic and basaltic komatiite, both of which are known to occur within the tholeiitic-komatiitic Bamler sequence of the Red Lake Greenstone Belt, which host the majority of past and current gold production in the Red Lake district. Although the data comprising the Digital Database is generally available in the public domain, it is in a variety of analogue formats not easily transferable into a useable digital database.

The significant volume of the Digital Database will facilitate effective time and cost saving target generation to locate specific rock types associated with the gold mineralization within the Red Lake camp. The Digital Database is comprised of, but not limited to:


  • 1452 kilometres of helicopter VTEM airborne survey – 100 metres spacing;
  • > 150 kilometres of Induced Polarization in multiple grids;
  • 5504 humus and 2305 soil geochemical sample results;
  • extensive geochemistry samples across all rock types;
  • detailed geological and structural mapping;
  • 38 diamond drill-hole digital database; and
  • compilation of historic exploration and government geoscience,

Matthew Coltura, the Company’s Chief Executive Officer and President, stated: “The acquisition of Tri Origin’s extensive Digital Database is a great benefit to moving the RLX Properties forward in a cost-effective manner. The Digital Database will allow Straightup to maximize exploration dollars without having to duplicate previously completed exploration. Additionally, the Company’s discussions with Tri Origin have provided access to the guiding principles and interpretations that directed their exploration.”

The Digital Database is in the process of being integrated with the Company’s current project database. The Company will formulate its plans for the next steps of exploration on the RLX Properties upon completion of the integration.
