Edge Exploration Inc. has “The Utopia Block” which consists of three merged claims acquired by Dallas Davis, Alex Kramer, and Adrian Davis in January and February 2020. The merged claim, Dam Lake (9387), encompasses 2,479 hectares (ha) over carbonaceous sediments and volcanics of the early Silurian Mascarene Group, a mafic intrusive and a portion of the New River terrane, all of which border the south margin of the Saint George Batholith. The other two claims Wellington Lake (9590) and Linton Stream (9591),  encompasses 2,227 hectares (ha). 

As shown on the accompanying compilation map, the setting mirrors that of the Clarence Stream area where Galway Metals Inc. has drills defining the gold resource along a zone or zones that appear to splay off the regional northeast-trending Sawyer Brook fault. A similar trending regional structure, the Saint George fault, cross The Utopia Block to the east of which gold has been reported in float, drill core, and in streams draining across the Mascarene Group and Batholith margin. Splays off the Saint George fault are interpreted from a contoured magnetic vertical gradient map produced by Dighem from the results of an airborne survey flown for Noranda in 1989 (Report of Work 475960). It is over or near one such interpreted splay about 2 km east of the northern portion of The Utopia Block where the Noranda prospecting crew found that one “of twenty-nine (29) rocks collected for assaying……contained 302500 ppb Au (8.82 oz/T)” (Report of Work 474310). In ounces per metric tonne, this equals 9.73 oz/t. Two and possibly three parallel splays off the Saint George fault are interpreted to cross The Utopia Block which has received no recorded prospecting or drilling, probably because of very few bedrock exposures.
