Detective Superintendent Ian Mulcahey says 76 people have come forward to make allegations for the first time since a re-investigation into abuse claims began in November.
Operation Pallial is being conducted by the National Crime Agency, at the request of North Wales Police, to ensure its independence.
North Wales Chief Constable Mark Polin says police will 'always examine new information and evidence' and that offenders should 'look over their shoulders'.
"If you believe that the passage of time will reduce the resolve of Operation Pallial or any police force to identify people still alive who have caused harm to others and bring them to justice, you are sorely mistaken," he said.
"People who commit serious and sexual offences should live with the knowledge that we will always examine new information and evidence and seek to bring them to justice for their crimes.
"Offenders should quite rightly have to look over their shoulders for the rest of their lives."
