Lucky Strike covers 23,992 hectares and has logging road access. It is only 3 kilometres to a major highway, power, and 40 kilometres north by Highway of major infrastructure in Terrace, BC. The property is located south of Golden Triangle area, and resides within the Skeena Arch, a belt-scale structural corridor associated with significant porphyry and related mineralization.

Prosperity Trend Bullseye Zone

A high-resolution SkyTEMTM electromagnetic aerial survey found a concentric resistive zone flanking a magnetic high that is coincident with a significant gold-copper-molybdenum in soil anomaly on the Prosperity Trend Bullseye Zone.

The soil geochemistry has also defined a large 2000 by 400 metre zone of anomalous gold-copper-molybdenum in soil samples, this zone remains open. The soil anomaly has a geochemical signature consistent with some porphyry systems in the area and also coincident with the SkyTEMTM electromagnetic anomaly. A follow up program including IP, trenching, mapping and drilling has been recommended.

The grab sample assay results from the Prosperity Bullseye Zone have expanded the area from 650 by 250 metres in 2016 to 2.4 kilometres wide by 3.4 kilometres long in 2017. The zone remains open. Initial channel samples from the gold and polymetallic Fat Freddy vein system returned 1.66 grams per tonne gold, 105 grams per tonne silver, 0.08 percent copper, 0.39 percent zinc, and 5.45 percent lead over 0.21 metres (see Table 1). Chip sample highlights include 22.81 grams per tonne gold equivalent1 over 1 metre (including 22.3 grams per tonne gold, 31.5 grams per tonne silver, 0.05 percent copper, and 0.02 percent lead). Outcrop grab samples range from below detection limit to 24.4 grams per tonne gold equivalent (23.9 grams per tonne gold, 32.2 grams per tonne silver, and 0.03 percent lead). Of the 104 grab samples collected, five sample contained greater than 1 gram per tonne gold.

2 Grab Samples are selective in nature and not intended to be representative of the material sampled

The Prosperity Bullseye Zone is situated at the headwaters of two historic placer gold creeks (see BC MINFILE 103I204 and 103I050). Along the headwaters of Lorne Creek, 2.5 kilometres to the southeast of the soil anomaly, a series of silts sample were taken during the 2017 season that returned gold values up to 402 ppb. A historic BC MINFILE report (No. 103l027) from this creek reports angular pyritized and quartz-veined boulders hosted in a molybdenum rich porphyry. Historic grabs sample from boulders returned 9.8 grams per tonne gold, 214 grams per tonne silver, 3.4 per cent copper and 0.15 per cent lead. These historic assay results have not been verified to date. This catchment area is a key focus area for exploration in 2018.

A large soil sampling program was conducted on the Prosperity Bullseye Zone to test for porphyry geochemical signatures and to highlight regions for further exploration. The highlights are outlined below.

Discussion of Soil Sampling Results

The extensive soil sampling program was completed over an area of approximately 2.5 by 0.75 kilometres with 25 metre spaced grid lines and samples taken every 25 metres and:

  • Coincident with a SkyTEMTM conductive anomaly and concentric around a magnetic high;
  • Located in an area of bedrock gold and polymetallic veining; and
  • At the headwaters of two prolific placer creeks, Lorne and Douglas Creek.

The combined soil dataset shows an anomalous region of gold-copper-molybdenum measuring approximately 2000 by 400 metres (link to map). This zone has three areas that returned overlapping regions of higher values with accompanying anomalous bismuth-tungsten-antimony (up to 7.27 g/t Au; 557 ppm Cu; 65 ppm Mo; 50 ppm W; 4 ppm Sb; and 10 ppm Bi).

The anomaly in area one extends approximately 400 metres along strike from the Fat Freddy vein system and is the most westerly of these anomalous zones with gold values up to 7270 ppb and remains open.  The second anomaly found on the eastern margin of the soil grid measures 200 by 200 metres that is open to the South and East. The third anomaly on the southern margin of the soil grid measures approximately 500 by 500 metres and is open to the South and East. This third anomaly is defined by a zone of anomalous gold-copper-molybdenum-bismuth-tungsten-antimony in soil samples. Mean gold value of the 733 soil samples is 22.8 ppm (median value of 10 ppb and an SD of 271). Background Au in soil in this area is 10 ppb or less.

These extensive geochemical anomalies and pathfinder element relationships will provide for priority targets for trenching, ground geophysics, mapping, prospecting, and expanded soil sampling programs in preparation for drilling.

Kingpin Zone

The Kingpin zone is a 830 by 130 metre area, defined by grab samples containing polymetallic and gold mineralized in bedrock (link to map). The zone remains open in all directions. Mineralization is hosted in sheared metasedimentary rocks, massive sulphide veins, and quartz stockworks (link to photo). A two-man team spent a total of two days prospecting and channel sampling in this area. The majority of the terrain remains unexplored. Large areas of outcrop in the Kingpin area have recently been exposed due to ongoing rapid glacial and snowpack recession providing excellent potential to expand the zone of known mineralization.

Sampling at the Kingpin zone includes: a single 1 metre channel sample, six chip samples, and four outcrop grab samples. Highlights are reported in Table 2 and include the 1 metre channel which graded 6.43 grams per tonne gold equivalent1 (including 4.47 grams per tonne gold, 22.2 grams per tonne silver. 1.89 percent zinc, and 0.2 percent lead) and a 1 metre chip sample grading 17.55 grams per tonne gold equivalent1 (including 14.6 grams per tonne gold, 118 grams per tonne silver, 0.66 percent zinc, and 1.4 percent lead).

Channel sampling, mapping, prospecting, and silting is recommended to outline the full geometry of the Kingpin Zone and surrounding area to delineate drill targets.

Recent work and research in the area by the B.C. Geological Survey determined a package of Hazelton Volcanics outcrops on the Lucky Strike Property. This sequence, particularly the Quock Formation (link to map) has a geological setting that is contemporaneous with the development of the Eskay rift to the west. This area  of the property is believed to have good potential for epithermal mineralization and Eskay Creek style mineralization. The area of the Lucky Strike Property underlain by the Quock formation remains largely unexplored.


Mr. Roger Rosmus, CEO states:

“We are extremely encouraged by the 2017 exploration results at Lucky Strike. We look forward to advancing the project in 2018 through drilling and additional prospecting in areas that have yet to be sampled.”

Dr. Stefan Kruse, Chief Consulting Geologist stated:

“The geological team is currently planning an extensive work program for the upcoming field season. We look forward to unlocking the potential of the Lucky Strike Property in 2018.”

All rock, channel and talus fine samples were crushed and pulverized at ALS Canada Ltd.’s lab in Terrace, BC or in Reno Nevada. ALS is either Certified to ISO 9001:2008 or Accredited to ISO 17025:2005 in all of its locations. The resulting sample pulps were analyzed for gold by fire assay in Reno, Nevada or in Vancouver, BC. The pulps were also assayed using multi-element aqua regia digestion at ALS Canada Ltd.’s lab in Vancouver, BC. The silt samples were sieved and assayed at ALS Canada Ltd.’s lab in Vancouver, BC. The coarse reject portions of the rock, channel and talus fine samples, as well as the pulps, were shipped to J2 Syndicate’s storage facility in Terrace, BC. The silt samples were disposed of after analysis. All samples were analyzed using ALS Canada Ltd.’s assay procedure ME-ICP41, a 1:1:1 aqua regia digestion with inductively-coupled plasma atomic emission spectrometry (ICP-AES) or inductively-coupled plasma mass spectrometry (ICP-MS) finish for 35 elements as well as the Au-AA24 lead-collection fire assay fusion procedure with atomic absorption spectroscopy (AAS) finish. Any results greater than 100 ppm for silver or 10,000 ppm copper, lead and zinc were additionally assayed using ALS’s OG46 method particular to each element. This method used an HNO3-HCl digestion followed by ICP-AES (or titrimetric and gravimetric analysis). Gold values of greater than 10 ppm Au were assayed by the Au-GRA22 method which includes a fire-assay fusion procedure with a gravimetric finish. Blanks and duplicates QA/QC samples were inserted into channels sample laboratory batches. Additionally, a 10% sub-sample of pulp and reject material was sent to Activation Laboratories in Ancaster Ontario, for check-analysis.

The reader is cautioned that grab samples are spot samples which are typically, but not exclusively, constrained to mineralization. Grab samples are selective in nature and collected to determine the presence or absence of mineralization and are not intended to be representative of the material sampled.
