Takom Exploration Ltd.
Discovery in Excellence
January 15, 2019 – Prince George, BC – Takom Exploration Ltd. is pleased to announce exploration results from Phase 2 of the Proof Project located 25 kilometres southeast of Fraser Lake, British Columbia, Canada and 10 kilometres southeast of the Endako Molybdenum Mine.
Reconnaissance geological mapping and a total of three rock grab samples, as well as one pit sample, were collected within the project area. The program revealed greenstone to the northeast and white (talc) schist in the central south with maroon crystal tuff, of the Hazelton Group, underlying the central portion of the area. Magnetite was abundant within the greenstone whereas large cm-sized limonite and limonite-tourmaline patches were abundant in the white schist. To the north metavolcanic rocks were found containing pervasive chlorite and chalcedony with sub-mm to 3 mm wide folded quartz veins featuring ankeritic selvages. A hand-dug pit sample, 5 metres from the 38.8 ppb gold-in-twig sample, consisted of maroon crystal tuff, with rare sub-mm quartz veins, returned 0.427 ppm Ag, 18.8 ppm Cs, 17 ppm Sb and 0.34 ppm Tl.
Takom is very pleased with reconnaissance program conducted on the Proof Project in 2018 and the discovery of metamorphic rocks in the project area as well as the discovery of the Goldtree Zone with its halo of associated elements (Ag, Cs, Sb and Tl) present within the rock, silt and twig samples.
All samples were sent to Actlabs in Kamloops, BC for processing and assaying. The rock grab samples were crushed (< 7 kg) until up to 80% passing 2 mm, riffle split (250 g) and pulverized (mild steel) to 95% passing 105 micrometres with cleaner sand included (code RX-1). All samples were digested using aqua regia (a partial digestion) with a 63 element inductively plasma mass spectrometry finish as well as fire assayed (near total digestion) for gold.
About Takom Exploration Ltd.
Takom Exploration Ltd. is a privately-owned, BC-based geological and GIS consulting firm serving junior exploration companies and prospectors within BC and the Yukon Territory. The company is also a project generator that utilizes the latest in exploration techniques and integrates them with tried-and-true, boots-on-the-ground traditional surveys to develop quality exploration assets.
The 905 hectare Proof Project is the inaugural project for Takom Exploration and is 100%-owned. The project area boasts easy access throughout the mineral tenures via a network of newly created resource roads (2018) as well as nearby railway (25 kilometers) and power lines (10 kilometres).
The claim was initially staked Spring of 2018 to cover the centre of a large, 30 kilometre in length, caesium anomaly in lodgepole pine outer bark. Takom Exploration further researched the anomaly and launched reconnaissance exploration programs in July and October of 2018 designed to evaluate the potential of the area. The programs revealed a 935 metre, gold-in-twig anomaly with supporting halos of Ag, Cs, Sb, Tl, and V.
