Iron mask Exploration Services Ltd. has been engaged by West Mining Corp. to conduct drone-based photogrammetry and LiDAR surveys, announced West Mining in a press release yesterday.
In addition, all of Junker’s minerals were analyzed on a comprehensive geochemical profile on its 100% owned property in British Columbia’s “Golden Horseshoe” district.
- These explorations are designed to follow up on historical gold and copper anomalies at the Junker Property.
- Several historic gold mines are located in the “Golden Horseshoe” district of British Columbia, including the Lawyers Mine owned by Benchmark Metals Inc. and the Kemess South Mine owned by Centerra Gold Inc.
- At the Kemess South Mine, history shows that the plant produced 92 million grams of gold, 4.8 million grams of silver, and 335 kilos of copper from 2.29 million tons milled.
- A total of 5.4 million grams of gold and over 113 million grams of silver were produced from 570,000 tons of mining at the Lawyers Mine from 1989 to 1992.
- Drilling by Benchmark at the Lawyers project (see News Release dated 3172021) returned 52.91 meters of 5.95 grams per troy ounce gold and 130 grams per ounce silver and 4.47 meters of 58.72 grams per troy ounce gold.
- One stream sediment sample collected as part of the Regional Geochemical Sampling Program that exceeds the 99th percentile gold contains an initial spark of interest in the Junker Property.
- The stream sediment samples near Lawyers, Kemess, and Baker mines produced similar signatures with gold concentrations near the 98 and 99 percentiles.
