Murex Copper

Fall 2023 Exploration consisted of geochemical and geological mapping in the North of the property, Lake and Lupus Zones, yielding the following assays:

Sample IDGold (g/t)Silver (g/t)Copper (%)Zinc (%)
H61923022.2480.638.11
H6192315.1124.40.930.42
H6192321.1871.83.120.27
H61924160.31410.626.76

#H619233 and #H619234 were outside the mineralized zone

Historic Exploration from the North of the project

Although completed by qualified Geologists and Engineers, historic results are not NI-43101 compliant.

In addition, to the gold and polymetallic zones in the North of the property, the Murex breccia zones are located in the central part of the property and are interpreted as a collapsed volcanic dome structure with shallow-dipping thrust faults cut by steeply dipping faults associated with polymetallic Cu-Ag-Au-As-Sb-Mo-Te bearing sulphide mineralization. Historic work identified a 700m X 700m area, the D Zone, along with the A Zone and E Zone, two breccia zones within a 1,200m X 3,000m area.

The property has been systematically explored, since 1957, by various operators including Noranda, now Glencore.  Extensive previous exploration has occurred with the following significant drill intercepts:
