Cache Creek Gp. carbonate.
Local intermediate volcanics as dykes and possibly sills. Entire
sequence folded into a broad northwest trending anticline bounded by regional NW faults.
Minor pyrite found in volcanics.
Alteration as moderate to intense silicification,
brecciation, marbilization, local dolomitization and evidence of decalcification
scattered across property.
Detailed mapping of the central claim area in 2002 found outcrop & local float occurrences of jasperoid; area of marble development defined.
1993: property staked, no evidence of exploration prior to 1993.
1993-1997: prospecting, soil sampling (+300 samples)
preliminary ground magnetics and VLF surveying totalling (25km), magnetic modelling
1998: I.P. survey (12.5 km pole-dipole and gradient) on three lines 400 m apart
2000: Landsat study by V. Campbell
2001: linecutting, 70 km ground magnetics & EM by Orequest Consultants
2002: detailed (1:5000) mapping over entire grid area by U. Schmidt
2003: low detection limit analyses on 42 silicifed/jasperoid carbonate breccia samples
2005: low detection limit analyses on 26 silicifed/jasperoid carbonate breccia samples
2008: preliminary plant and water study by Golder Associates
Government airborne: anomaly 3km x 5 km, 400 gammas above background over carbonate sequence. Ground survey confirmed complex central magnetic response and two linear NW- trending magnetic highs.
Limited IP survey identified 3 zones.
Eastern Zone: apparent chargeabilities up to 23 mv/v correlating closely with zones of low resistivity and correlates but is larger than exposed volcanic dykes.
Central Zone & Western Zones: weak to moderate chargeabilities correlating with high resistivity; both unexplained- interpreted source sulphide skarn. Western anomaly similar to Eastern Zone
Marble development coincides with significant magnetic anomalies. Areas of calcite veining coincident with resistivity anomalies. Jasperoid and silicified carbonate breccia float present
Lithogeochemical response from jasperoid & silicified carbonate breccia include maximum values of: 39.8 ppb Au, 203 ppm As, 32.79 ppm Sb, 38.56 ppm Mo, 113.23 ppm Cu, 242 ppm Zn, 6850 ppb Hg
Gold response from banded hematite chalcedony vein material.
|Property Details & Access:
Direct road access from Highway 99N via a 4 km dirt road.
36 km west of Cache Creek, Kamloops Mining Division, NTS 92I13E
Looking to finance drilling.
Surveys have identified a number of shallow, and several deeper targets worthy of drill-testing.
Setting highly favourable for deposition of base and precious metal
mineralization related to epithermal, mesothermal and/or contact metasomatic processes.
