Discover, Develop, Operate

Overview

Imperial has interests in several exploration properties located in Canada, however our current focus is to minimize exploration expenditures on non-core projects. Prospecting work conducted as part of this minimum work program has been successful in the discovery of two new showings.

LJ Property

On the LJ property, located 35 kilometres north-northeast of Revelstoke, BC, prospecting was successful in discovering the source of the zinc-lead-silver high grade boulders below the toe of a receding glacier. The sphalerite-galena-pyrite outcrop was channel sampled using a diamond saw with weighted assay results of 6.44% zinc, 5.26% lead and 3.05 g/t silver over a width of 5.3 metres separated by a 10 metre interval of lower grade material and another parallel interval of 5.98% zinc, 3.34% lead and 1.97 g/t silver over 5.0 metres. True width of these samples is estimated to be 82% of the cut width. The mineralization coincides with 650 metre surface electromagnetic anomalies which are open in both directions along strike.

Giant Copper

At the Giant Copper property, located 40 kilometres east of Hope, BC, soil sampling outlined a strong gold anomaly 250 metres by 400 metres on a previously unexplored portion of the property. A grab sample from an oxidized quartz-carbonate veined sandstone rock outcrop above the anomaly assayed 5.53 g/t gold. Follow-up sampling has been completed with additional work planned for 2017.
