Whiting Creek

The Whiting Creek property is location 8 km north of Huckleberry mine. An exploration program conducted in 2016 continued to expand the potential of this large area of porphyry mineralization. Drilling confirmed the potential to expand the Main Zone, which hosts the probable reserves that are included in the current mine plan. Three diamond drill holes were drilled to test the edges of the Creek zone at Whiting Creek, one of three known zones of mineralization at Whiting Creek. All three holes intersected copper mineralization with WC16-01 intersecting 70.1 metres grading 0.39% copper and 0.02% molybdenum from surface; WC-16-02 intersecting 222.5 metres grading 0.31% copper and 0.02% molybdenum (both mineralized intervals starting from near surface) and WC16-03 intersecting 152.4 metres grading 0.25% copper and 0.02% molybdenum, starting at a depth of approximately 185.0 metres. The drilling shows the Creek zone is open to the west and has potential to have higher grades as the intercept in WC16-01 included a 36.6 metre intercept grading 0.57% copper. A comprehensive review of the exploration potential of the entire property is being conducted.
