About the Akie Property
The Akie property is situated within the Kechika Trough, the southernmost area of the regionally extensive Paleozoic Selwyn Basin and one of the most prolific sedimentary basins in the world for the occurrence of SEDEX zinc-lead-silver and stratiform barite deposits.
Drilling on the Akie property from 1994 to 1996 by Inmet Mining Corporation and by Canada Zinc Metals since 2005 has identified a significant body of zinc-lead-silver SEDEX mineralization known as the Cardiac Creek deposit. The deposit is hosted by siliceous, carbonaceous, fine grained clastic rocks of the Middle to Late Devonian Gunsteel Formation.
The Company has outlined a NI 43-101 compliant mineral resource including an indicated resource of 12.7 million tonnes grading 8.4% zinc, 1.7% lead and 13.7 g/t silver (at a 5% zinc cut-off grade) and an inferred resource of 16.3 million tonnes grading 7.4% zinc, 1.3% lead and 11.6 g/t silver (at a 5% zinc cut-off grade). The deposit remains open in all directions.
The Cirque deposit, located some 20 km northwest of Akie and owned under a joint venture by Teck Resources and Korea Zinc, is also hosted by Gunsteel rocks.
About the Kechika Regional Project
In addition to the Akie property, the Company owns 100% of a large contiguous group of mineral claims known as the Kechika Regional project, that aggregate to a total of 10 properties that cover 68,000 hectares. The mineral claims stretch a distance of 140 kilometers from the Pie property on the north boundary of the Akie claims to the Thro property, near the northern reaches of the Gataga River. The properties cover the extent of the prospective Gunsteel Formation shale which is the known host of SEDEX mineralization in the Kechika Trough. The southernmost project boundary is located approximately 260 kilometers north-northwest of the town of Mackenzie.
The Kechika project includes several properties with significant historical drill intercepts, including the Mt. Alcock property which has yielded a drill intercept of 8.8 metres grading 9.3% Zn + Pb from the main showing (1). Historical drilling on the Bear-Spa property returned several drill intercepts of >10 metres grading 2.5 to 3.0% Zn + Pb and up to 20.6 g/t Ag (2). There has been no modern follow-up exploration on many of these properties.
