PK Gold Grubstake

(available)

Executive Summary

Located within northern British Columbia, the PK Gold Grubstake is underlain by Upper Paleozoic Cache Creek group deformed chert, argillite and phyllite. This area was mapped and reviewed for placer operations in the 1980s. Six heavy concentrate samples returned > 10,000 ppb gold at the confluence of two creeks and were considered to be consistent with the distribution of visible gold in the area. Along the upper reaches of another creek, two samples returned 1,175 and 1,210 ppb gold. It was suggested that the gold and tungsten-tin values are spatially, as well as genetically, related with local sources at the headwaters of the two creeks. The source was thought to likely be from a vein-type deposit rather than a skarn.

 

Regional silt samples  show high silver signatures (0.254 to 0.528 ppm Ag), moderate cadmium signatures (1.15 to 2.31 ppm Cd), moderate copper (25 to 184 ppm Cu), moderate zinc (65 to 276 ppm Zn) as well as 0.177 to 0.190 ppm mercury, 300 to 2500 ppm sulfur and 0.46 to 3.26 ppm antimony. A possible gossanous area at the centre of the prospective area returned a regional silt sample with 0.528 ppm silver, 66 ppm copper, 0.86 ppm antimony and 135 ppm zinc. The recommended area of interest is 3,277.403 hectares.

TS Polymetallic Grubstake

(available)

Executive Summary

Located within northern British Columbia the TS Polymetallic Grubstake is approximately 10 kilometres from road access. The area is underlain by Middle Paleozoic Big Salmon Complex-series of metamorphosed and polyphase deformed mafic to felsic volcanic to meta-volcanic rocks, quartz-rich clastic sedimentary rocks, as well as intrusive rocks of diorite, tonalite and leucogranite composition. Regionally, a distinctive ‘crinkle chert’ overlies the volcanic units. Jurassic Coconino quartz diorite/tonalite intrusion is located in the south.

Regional geophysical anomalies of several small, <5 kilometre, sub-oval, positive and negative magnetic anomalies punctuate this region where these anomalies were found to be coincident with outcrops and subcrops of porphyry intrusions  mineralization. The TS proposed area contains two of these geophysical anomalies: one is 4 kilometres in length trending northeast/southwest and the other is 8 kilometres in length trending north-northeast/south-southwest.
 

The neighbouring claim expired in March of 2019. They found rock samples with 2.2% copper and 28 ppm silver and soil anomalies at maxima of 116 ppb gold, 378 ppm copper, 2040 ppm arsenic, 790 ppm zinc, 505 ppm lead, 1.07 ppm silver and 35.5 ppm antimony as well as 0.29 ppm mercury and 6.15 ppm cadmium.

 

The area was sparsely populated with regional samples and most of the samples were not assayed for Au. Regional silt samples  show high silver signatures (0.152 to 0.851 ppm Ag), moderate mercury signatures (50 to 160 ppb Hg), moderate zinc (54 to 325 Zn) as well as 700 to 1200 ppm sulfur.

BL Gold Grubstake

(available)

Executive Summary

Located within northern British Columbia, the BL Gold Grubstake is approximately 50 kilometres from road and railway access with a trail terminating approximately 1 kilometre from the proposed area. The regional geology consists of Paleozoic to Mesozoic Cache Creek Complex – Kedahda Formation of deformed chert, siliceous argillite and siliclastic rocks with exposures of limestone, marble and calcareous sediments. Middle Jurassic tonalite intrusive rock of the Three Sisters Plutonic Suite intrude the local area. Cenozoic Mount Edziza Complex alkaline volcanic rocks are found to the northeast.

 

Locally, the area was explored for uranium and asbestos but these commodities were not pursued. Placer claims abound to this region. Based on satellite imagery, the proposed area has low relief, without visible gossans, and is heavily vegetated which may hamper conventional mineral exploration survey techniques.

 

Two regional silt samples within the proposed area show the following signatures: 0.0118 and 0.3232 ppm gold (one of the highest Au values in this region), 0.332 to 0.174 ppm silver, 0.177 to 0.190 ppm mercury, 0.86 and 0.31 ppm antimony, 0.15 and 0.14 ppm thallium, 4.4 and 3.3 selenium, 7.2 and 2.4 ppm arsenic, 2100 and 4100 ppm sulfur, 13800 and 32900 ppm iron, as well as 310 and 551 ppm barium. Arsenic signatures are low (7.2 and 2.4 ppm As) and may be related to oxidation. The characteristics of this proposed area suggest a Carlin-style/Sediment-hosted Au Deposit. The recommended area of interest is 2,260.077 hectares.

NG Polymetallic Grubstake

(available)

Executive Summary

Located within northern British Columbia, the NG Polymetallic Grubstake is approximately 65 kilometres from road and railway access with a proposed road (2013) transecting the proposed area and 25 kilometres from a trail leading to the nearest town. The regional geology consists primarily of Lower Jurassic Laberge Group – Inklin Formation of argillite, greywacke, wacke and conglomerate turbidites. Early Eocene Sloko Group coarse volcaniclastic rocks, Lower Jurassic Laberge Group – Takwahoni Formation volcanic rocks and a Cenozoic Sloko-Hyder Plutonic Suite porphyritic intrusion are also located within the proposed area.

 

The area was explored in the early 2010's with limited silt sampling returning 30 ppb Au and 207 ppb Au. The source rock of these silt anomalies has yet to be found. Based on the satellite imagery, strongly gossanous areas are located within the proposed area which may have been recently revealed due to glacier abatement.
 

Regional silt samples within the proposed area show the following signatures: 0.127 to 0.544 ppm silver, 30 to 128 ppm copper, 91.4 to 188 ppm zinc, 0.068 to 0.789 ppm mercury, 0.07 to 2 ppm antimony, 0.6 to 0.41 ppm thallium, 0.2 and 2.6 selenium as well as 500 and 3300 ppm sulfur. Gold and lead values are regionally low (0.0024 to 0.0074 ppm Au and 12.6 to 21.66 ppm Pb). The recommended area of interest is 5,310.916 hectares.

PR Polymetallic Grubstake

(available)

Executive Summary

Located within northern British Columbia, the PR Polymetallic Grubstake is approximately 90 kilometres from road and railway access and 30 kilometres from a trail leading to the nearest town. The regional geology consists primarily of Paleozoic Cache Creek Complex oceanic crustal ultramafic rocks with gabbroic to dioritic intrusive rocks of the Nakina Formation. A Cenozoic porphyritic intrusion from the Sloko-Hyder Plutonic Suite is within the area with Lower Jurassic Laberge Group – Inklin Formation argillite, greywacke, wacke and conglomerate turbidites.

 

The area was explored in the late 1940's when a gold-bearing, limonitic and Mn-stained silicified breccia was found north of the proposed area with 126.17 g/t Au. Subsequent work on the claims in the late 1980’s yielded poor results for gold and the original source was not found. Between 1982 and 2005, the area south of the proposed area, the most promising samples returned 30 g/t silver and 0.27 g/t gold from a gossanous zone within an altered porphyry whose mineralization was thought to be associated with small, thin quartz-sphalerite stringers in the porphyry intrusive. A talus sample collected from a local creek returned a split assay of 2750/1650 ppb gold. Chip samples returned values up to 677 ppb gold (quartz with massive pyrite), 11.2 ppm silver, and >20000 ppm Zn (veinlet of massive ankerite with galena). On another claim within the area a sample returned, 1.770 ppm gold with 20.3 ppm silver in the assay certificates but no description accompanied this sample and it is not on the map.
 

Regional silt samples within the proposed area show the following signatures: 0.127 to 0.544 ppm silver, 30 to 128 ppm copper, 91.4 to 188 ppm zinc, 0.068 to 0.789 ppm mercury, 0.07 to 2 ppm antimony, 0.6 to 0.41 thallium, 0.2 and 2.6 selenium as well as 500 and 3300 ppm sulfur. Gold  and lead values are regionally low (0.0024 to 0.0074 ppm gold and 12.6 to 21.66 ppm lead). Based on the satellite imagery, a strong purple-red gossanous zone may be located in the centre of the proposed area. The recommended area of interest is 5,085.916 hectares.
