British Columbia-focused Ximen Mining (CVE:XIM) says it has found a 500m (metre) by 250 metre anomaly at the Brett Gold project, which it aims to follow up.
The find remains open to the north, the firm said, and is parallel to and located 1 km to the northeast of the Main Zone.
It comes after last year's biogeochemical survey to identify targets that may be under glacial cover and within the broad and strong magnetic low, northeast of the Main zone.
Ximen chief executive Chris Anderson said: "This new biogeochemical anomaly is a high priority for follow-up in 2015.
"As we continue to evaluate all the results of 2014 work, I expect additional high quality targets to emerge for drill testing."
Samples were collected at 50 m samples on 50 m spaced grid lines over the mag-low anomaly, using an offset sampling pattern on adjacent grid lines.
