The Swift Katie Property Update
The Company has completed two core holes totalling 640 metres of a planned 1500 metre exploration program at the Swift Katie property. The two holes were cored from the same site where previous drill hole SK14-002 returned a 3.5m interval of 13.3g/t gold, 201g/t silver and 0.33% copper. A third drill hole is underway on a 50 metre step out from that original set-up. Core samples from the two holes have been submitted for assay, with results pending during December. Management is pleased with the initial down hole observations and are looking forward to the receipt of the pending assays.
The Swift Katie project consists of 19 contiguous MTO mineral claims, covering over 80 square kilometres within a geologically favorable and highly metallogenic area of BC that historically has hosted several important mining camps. Drilling to date on the Katie zone has identified three accumulations of semi continuous Cu-Au mineralization over a 1,800m cumulative strike length. Internal work by Valterra has identified eight infill holes totaling 2,600m which, when completed, would significantly enhance both the size and continuity of the mineralized zone. Widespread Cu-in-soil anomalies suggest several additional untested targets.
The previous high-grade gold-silver vein intercepts at the Swift target warranted further exploration and follow-up, as previous work on the zone focused primarily on the large-scale copper-gold porphyry potential. Gold mineralization at Swift is associated with pyrite-pyrrhotite-chalcopyrite veins at the contact between an andesite volcanic unit and a diorite intrusive, and sit within a much broader zone containing elevated copper and lead. The package may reflect a transitional environment from a porphyry to an epithermal system and shows some similarity to styles of mineralization identified in the historic Rossland Mining Camp (Past Production: 2.4 M oz/Au; 3.4M oz/Ag and 120Mlbs Cu) located just 25km to the west of the property.
These historical results support the Company’s belief of a widespread gold-enriched, transitional-epithermal system at the Swift target and a large alkali porphyry system at the Katie target.
