Web proceeds can be used for prices related to the continued exploration/drill program for the Silver Queen gold-silver venture in British Columbia.
Crews have mobilized and are within the means of finishing the subsequent part of drilling on the 100% owned Silver Queen venture. As much as 1,800 metres of core drilling in 8 holes are deliberate and can embrace step-outs from bonanza grade silver mineralization recognized in drilling from earlier this yr on the Camp Vein goal, which included 0.3m grading 56,291/t AgEq inside 4.5m averaging 4,718g/t AgEq from gap SQ20-010 (see NR-12-20; Oct 19, 2020); and 1.0m grading 1,441g/t AgEq inside 7.0m averaging 656g/t AgEq from gap SQ20-003 (see NR-11-20; Oct 8, 2020).
Drilling will goal the rapid space across the bonanza-grade mineralization in gap SQ20-010 at approximate 25 metre step-outs and can take a look at upward of 150 metres beneath floor on a goal that has acquired, up to now, minimal drill testing to depth.
It is a second part of exploration drilling on the property in 2020 following an earlier 10 gap, 3,000 metre drill program accomplished in September. Assay outcomes from solely 4 of 5 holes that examined the Camp Vein have been acquired with outcomes pending from all 5 holes on the No. 3 Vein. Outcomes can be reported as acquired over the approaching weeks.
The Firm additionally plans as much as 4,000 metres of drilling as step outs from high-grade gold-enriched mineralization within the No. 3 and NG-3 veins, with drilling anticipated beginning in late January.
Silver Queen Challenge
The Silver Queen venture incorporates a high-grade, high-margin, Au-Ag-Zn mineral useful resource that’s accessed by street from the group of Houston, BC. It’s adjoining to energy, roads and rail with important mining infrastructure that was developed below earlier operators: Bradina JV (Bralorne Mines); and Houston Metals Corp. (a Hunt Brothers firm). Included are an historic decline into the No. 3 Vein, camp infrastructure and a maintained Tailings Facility.
An preliminary NI 43-101 Mineral Useful resource Estimate issued on July sixteenth, 2019, and utilizing a CDN$100 NSR cut-off, reported:
- Indicated – 244,000ozs AuEq: 85,000ozs Au, 5.2Mozs Ag, 5Mlbs Cu, 17Mlbs Pb and 114Mlbs Zn; and
- Inferred – 193,000ozs AuEq: 64,000ozs Au, 4.7Mozs Ag, 5Mlbs Cu, 16Mlbs Pb and 819Mlbs Zn(1)
Over 20 distinct epithermal veins have been recognized on the property, forming an intensive community of zoned, Tertiary-age epithermal veins. The system stays largely underexplored and kinds the premise for the Firm’s close to to mid-term exploration plans.

- The 2019 Silver Queen Useful resource Estimate was ready following CIM definitions for classification of Mineral Assets and recognized at a CDN$100/NSR cut-off, an indicated useful resource of 815Kt averaging 3.2g/t Au, 201g/t Ag, 1.0% Pb, 6.4% Zn and 0.26% Cu and an inferred useful resource of 801Kt averaging 2.5g/t Au, 184g/t Ag, 0.9% Pb, 5.2% Zn and 0.31% Cu. Grade capping on Ag and Zn was carried out on 0.75m to 1.24m size composites. Au, Cu and Pb required no capping. ID3 was utilized for grade interpolation for Au and Ag whereas ID2 was utilized for Cu, Pb and Zn. Grade blocks have been interpreted inside constraining mineralized domains utilizing and array of 3m x 1m x 3m blocks within the mannequin. A bulk density of three.56 t/m³ was used for all tonnage calculations. Approximate US$ two-year trailing common steel costs as follows have been used: Au $1,300/oz, Ag $17/oz, Cu $3/lb, Pb $1.05/lb and Zn $1.35/lb with an alternate fee of US$0.77=C$1.00.
The C$100/tonne NSR cut-off grade worth for the underground Mineral Useful resource was derived from mining prices of C$70/t, with course of prices of C$20/t and G&A of C$10/t. Course of recoveries used have been Au 79%, Ag 80%, Cu 81%, Pb 75% and Zn 94%. AuEq and AgEq are primarily based on the formulation: NSR (CDN) = (Cu% * $57.58) + (Pb% * $19.16) + (Zn% * $30.88) +(Au g/t * $39.40) + (Ag g/t * $0.44) – $78.76.
Mineral Assets are usually not Mineral Reserves, wouldn’t have demonstrated financial viability and could also be materially affected by environmental, allowing, authorized, title, taxation, socio-political, advertising and marketing, or different related points. Inferred Mineral Assets have a decrease degree of confidence than Indicated Mineral Assets and is probably not transformed to a Mineral Reserve however could also be upgraded to an Indicated Mineral Useful resource with continued exploration. The Mineral Assets have been estimated utilizing the Canadian Institute of Mining, Metallurgy and Petroleum (CIM), CIM Requirements on Mineral Assets and Reserves, Definitions and Pointers.
The Mineral Useful resource Estimate was ready by Eugene Puritch, P.Eng., FEC, CET and Yungang Wu, P.Geo., of P&E Mining Consultants Inc. (“P&E”) of Brampton, Ontario, Unbiased Certified Individuals (“QP”), as outlined by Nationwide Instrument 43-101. P&E Mining means that an underground mining situation is suitable for the venture at this stage and has really helpful a CDN$100/tonne NSR cut-off worth for the base-case useful resource estimate.
Robert Macdonald, MSc. P.Geo, is VP Exploration of Equity Metals Company and a Certified Particular person as outlined by Nationwide Instrument 43-101. He’s chargeable for the supervision of the exploration on the Silver Queen and Monument Tasks and for the preparation of the technical info on this disclosure.
