Thorn Gold-Copper-Silver Project Summary
The wholly owned 997 square kilometres Thorn Project is located in the Sutlahine River area of northwestern British Columbia (northern tip of the “Golden Triangle”), Canada, approximately 90 km ENE from Juneau, AK. The southern limit of the Thorn claim boundary is about 65 km from tide water. The Thorn Project hosts a district scale Triassic to Cretaceous volcano-plutonic complex and related sedimentary units with several styles of mineralization related to porphyry and epithermal environments. Targets include sediment hosted gold, high sulphidation high-grade silver-gold-copper veins/breccia zones, polymetallic-bearing diatreme-breccia zones and dissemination porphyry copper-gold-silver targets.
Thorn is relatively accessible from Vancouver. A commercial flight to Whitehorse, Yukon departing in the morning allows for transfers to a fixed wing aircraft which can land on the airstrip at the property for lunch time. Access around the property is supported by helicopter from the well-established Thorn camp.

The earliest known work on the Thorn property was carried out by Kennco Explorations (Western) Limited in 1959 during a regional exploration program. Including work by Brixton, a total of 323 silts, 8,666 soils, and 1,868 rock samples were collected. Geophysical work included ground magnetics, IP, airborne VTEM, and airborne magnetics. The total drilling to date is 29,169m within 170 diamond drill holes property wide.
