Rogers Creek Copper Project

The Rogers Creek Copper Property

The Rogers Creek Property rests in the Lower Lillooet River Valley, about 90 km NE of Vancouver, B.C. With 47 contiguous mineral claims covering 212.34 km2 with Four Targets (I-IV). The Property has porphyry Cu, Au, and Mo mineralization from intrusive activity within a post-accretionary magmatic arc comparable to major Cu-Mo deposits in similar U.S. belts. Geophysical surveys, stream sediment and soil sampling, mapping, and prospecting delineated Targets I, II, as well as III and IV. There are similar porphyry-style (Cu,Au,Mo) intrusions comparable to very large porphyry (Cu-Mo) deposits in Alaska and Washington. Similar age magmatic belts worldwide contain (>1 billion tonnes) copper and molybdenum deposits with mega mines.

Key Points:

  • Work to date has advanced the property from a small showing discovered during logging road construction in 2007 to an advanced exploration-stage with evidence for a large mineralized system.
  • Four target areas have been identified within the Miocene-aged Rogers Creek pluton. To-date, most of the work has been focused on Targets 1 & 2, centred by two magnetic lows within a larger circular magnetic feature. Targets 1 & 2 outline a 6 by 2km area of widespread propylitic alteration, anomalous copper-gold geochemistry, and scattered copper-gold mineralization.
  • Quartz-sulphide veins on the periphery and cutting Target 1 breccia returned gold and silver values up to 23.1 g/t Au, 232 g/t Ag, 0.69% copper and 81.4 ppm molybdenum.

Historical Workings:

  • 1,786 km of helicopter-borne magnetic gradiometry and VLF-EM.
  • 280 km of helicopter-borne radiometrics.
  • Levelling, merging and inversions of 47 kilometres of Induced Polarization (I.P.) geophysics.
  • 3D modelling of geophysical and property data by Mira Geosciences with proprietary
  • Geoscience Analyst 3D software.
  • Prospecting, mapping, and sampling, including the collection of 1,061 surface rock samples, 3,328 soil samples, and 318 stream sediment samples.
  • Soil sample geochemical vectoring study.
  • 5,209 m of diamond drilling in 10 holes, including the analysis of 1,951 m of drill core samples.
  • 5,200 m of drill core magnetic susceptibility readings totalling 1,164 readings.
  • 329 resistivity/chargeability readings taken over 7 drill holes totalling ~4,055m.
  • Limited surface and drill hole (4 holes) alteration mapping and logging.
