North American Copper & Gold Mineral Exploration Projects
Eagle Copper & Gold Project, Central British Columbia
- 2,530 hectare year-round, road accessible porphyry Cu/Au project in central British Columbia; option to earn up to 80%.
- Access – 93 km from Fort St. James just off a paved highway – topography is rolling hills and the area is heavily logged; year-round accommodation within 5km.
- Project situated in productive copper-gold porphyry belt; nearby mines and development projects including Centerra Gold’s Mt. Milligan mine 50km to the east of Northwest Copper’s Kwanika copper gold porphyry development project 60km to the north.
- All necessary services within 90 min drive from property – no need for helicopter support = low cost exploration
- The property surrounds Altius Minerals’ Gibson project, and may contain on-strike extensions of Au-Ag bearing structures reported in 2018 results.
- The Eagle Cu-Au Project comprises 1921 hectares located midway between the Mt. Milligan Mine and the Kwanika Cu-Au deposit.
- Mt. Milligan has 5.7 M oz Au and 2.2 B pounds Cu in PP reserves.
- Kwanika has an Indicated Pit Constrained Resource of 101 Mt of 0.31% Cu and 0.32 g/t Au
Initial 2021 Eagle Sample Results
- Assay results from over 50 rocks samples collected over a 3.5 kilometre trend have been returned.
- Sampled up to 9.86 % copper, 2.5 grams per tonne (g/t) gold and 77.7 g/t silver from the Nighthawk zone and up to 1.63 % copper and 1.24 g/t gold from the Vector zone.
- Results demonstrate the porphyry-related, high-grade copper potential of the Nighthawk to Vector corridor which will be the focus of further exploration.
2021 Eagle IP Results
- The IP survey included 20.5 line kilometres covering an area of approximately 8.75 km2; focused on the 3.5 kilometre long Nighthawk-Mid-Vector copper-gold mineralized trend.
- A new coincident high-chargeability and high-resistivity anomaly was discovered east of the historic Vector Zone, which is coincident with anomalous copper in soils – this area represents a new exploration target located nearly 500 metres east of historical drilling.
- A second zone of high-chargeability was identified between the Mid and Nighthawk zones with a coincident magnetic low, and could represent an untested porphyry target.
- A southeastern IP line, which tested the core of the Nighthawk Zone, shows an intense chargeability anomaly that increases in size with depth. From the IP survey it’s now apparent that historic drilling at Nighthawk (DDH EA-91-06 which returned up to 27.3 metres of 0.87 % copper and 0.32 grams per tonne (g/t) gold) tested only a narrow near-surface chargeability anomaly.
Eagle Copper & Gold Porphyry Project: Untested Targets
- Since 1966 several companies including Noranda have completed exploration work consisting of sampling, trenching, mag, IP and drilling on three main zones.
- In 1991 Noranda drilled eight holes into the Vector and Nighthawk zones.
- Drill hole EA91-06 intersected 27.28 m of 0.87 per cent Cu, 0.32 g/t Au and 3.85 g/t Ag (from 5.1 m to 32.4 m)1.
- Drill hole EA91-12 from the Vector zone cut 17.9 m of 0.82 per cent Cu, 0.47 g/t Au and 4.11 g/t Ag (from 18.5 m to 36.4 m)1.
