2018 Work Program

Highlights from the 2018 summer exploration program include:

  • SOUTHERN GLORY PROSPECT - A significant new mineralized vein was discovered approximately 7.5 kilometers south-west of the Clone prospect, termed the “Southern Glory Prospect”. The Southern Glory prospect was discovered within the recently ablated eastern face of a glacial valley
  • An up to 1.25-metre-wide quartz vein was mapped and sampled containing semi-massive chalcopyrite, pyrite and bornite mineralization which was traced on surface for approximately 70 metres along strike. Rock sample results from this new bedrock showing include: sample number X516911 (1m chip sample), 6.45% Cu, 162g/t Ag, 0.11g/t Au, and 1079ppm Zn; sample number X516974 (1m chip sample), 4.11% Cu, 160g/t Ag, 0.52g/t Au, and 1449ppm Zn; sample number X516973 (outcrop sample) 3.96% Cu, 87.6g/t Ag, 0.20g/t Au; and sample number X516912 (1m chip sample), 2.95% Cu, and 53.6g/t Au
  • PORT 19 SHOWING – The Port 19 showing is a historic prospect that was rediscovered in 1994 and was prospected and geologically mapped this past summer with significant results obtained in both soil and rock (grab) sampling, and it is a high priority target for further work, including drilling in 2019. Soil and rock sampling were conducted over an area of approximately 2.5 by 1.4 kilometers, centered approximately 5.0 kilometers west-northwest of the Clone prospect. There has been significant glacial abatement over the showing since the 1990’s. Soil sampling results expanded on the known footprint of the Port 19 showing and were highly encouraging, including five samples with greater than 1g/t Au (8.33g/t, 6.68g/t, 3.7g/t, 1.66g/t, 1.61g/t). Rock samples results returned copper values of 0.52%, 0.99%, 1.02% and 1.64% Cu, and the highest silver value of 220 g/t Ag was obtained from the Port 19 area. Previous (1994, Assessment Report 23986) quartz-sulphide veins were mapped with four rock samples over 40 meters strike length returning an average grade of 6.03 g/t Au and 14.7 g/t Ag. In total 17 samples were taken in 1994 with an average grade of 2.99 g/t Au with gold values ranging from 0.05g/t to 10.66g/t Au
  • OUTBOUND SHOWING - The Outbound showing was discovered and 1995 and explored in 1996, with sulphide and precious metal mineralization reported similar to the Clone prospect located approximately 3.0 kilometers to the northeast. The Outbound area covers an area approximately 2.0 by 1.0 kilometers and has seen extensive glacial ablation and reduction of snow pack in the last two decades. Prospecting in the summer 2018 program returned multiple rock samples returning in excess of 0.10 % Cu and a peak value of 0.56% Cu, silver values up to 132 g/t Ag, and gold values in soil samples up to 1.04 g/t Au
  • CLONE PROSPECT – Limited sampling and prospecting was completed over the main Clone prospect area and sampling returned significant values including: 10.9 g/t Au, and 0.64 % Cu in rock samples, and peak values of 1.26 g/t Au and 1.66 g/t Au from soil samples. All existing infrastructure was inventoried and mapped in detail during the 2018 program and this data has been included in the application for a multi-year area-based drilling permit submitted in preparation for the 2019 drilling campaign
