Geology at Trapper is predominantly volcanic and volcaniclastic rocks of the Upper Triassic Stuhini group, which are intruded by Cretaceous quartz diorites, interpreted as part of the Thorn Magmatic Suite. The quartz diorite is associated with high-grade gold mineralization at Trapper, including a broad low-grade gold zoning that extends into the Stuhini volcanic rocks.
Gold mineralization is observed within structurally controlled quartz-carbonate veins and stockworks that host sulphides (pyrite, galena, sphalerite, minor chalcopyrite), and rare occurrences of visible gold. At surface, soil and rock geochemistry outline a 4 kilometer north-northwest gold trend, including a 2022 grab sample assaying 152 g/t Au, 187 g/t Ag, 6.11% Pb, 3.09% Zn and 0.21% Cu that has not yet been drill tested.
To date, 98 holes have been drilled at the Trapper target, including over 30 holes where visible gold has been observed. High-grade intercepts include 276 g/t Au over 0.46m and 160 g/t Au over 0.50m in THN21-186, part of a broader low-grade interval of 1.6 g/t Au over 187.51m. In 2022, drill hole THN22-205 intersected 249 g/t Au over 0.25m, within a 64m interval of 5.74 g/t Au. The 2021 and 2022 drill programs have outlined a consistent gold mineralized zone over 500m strike length, which remains open at depth and along strike. Drilling in 2023 will continue to test the extents of mineralization, in addition to targeting new structures and geochemical and geophysical anomalies.
Copper-gold-silver-molybdenum porphyry mineralization at the Camp Creek Target has been the focus of drilling by Brixton Metals since 2011. The target area is approximately 1.5km by 2km, and covers several different mineralized zones, including Oban, Talisker and Glenfiddich.
The porphyry is blind and it wasn’t until 2019 that drilling was deep enough to connect with the veining system, starting at approximately 300m depth. Through the 2020 and 2022 exploration season, drill testing has pushed holes beyond 1,000m depths and Camp Creek is now encountering Cu-Au-Ag-Mo porphyry mineralization over 100’s of meters, including 967.71m of 0.25% Cu, 0.09g/t Au, 2.39 g/t Ag and 186 ppm Mo (0.38% CuEq*) in THN22-201, and 821.25m of 0.24% Cu, 0.10 g/t Au, 2.44 g/t Ag and 174 ppm Mo (0.38% CuEq*) in THN21-184. Brixton continues to test the extents of this porphyry system, at depth and towards the northwest, northeast and southeast.
