Overview

Big Red comprises 12 contiguous claims totalling 17,538 hectares in northwestern British Colombia, 45 kilometres southwest of Telegraph Creek. Big Red lies within the Golden Triangle 70 kilometres north of Galore Creek and 80 kilometres west of GT Gold’s Tatogga discovery. Big Red is located 18 kilometres from paved highway with dirt roads extending to the claim block. The Golden Triangle is a geological province of prodigious copper and gold mineralisation and host to some of Canada’s most famous mines, including Premier, Red Chris, Snip, Brucejack and Eskay Creek. Within the Golden Triangle porphyry copper and gold, epithermal gold and silver and volcanogenic massive sulfide styles of mineralisation have all been recognised. At Big Red all three of these styles exist, indicating that a large mineralised system has been preserved from erosion. The porphyry centre to the mineralization is centred on a distinct magnetic-high feature that coincides with a radiometric potassium anomaly, copper, gold and molybdenum anomalies and a mapped Jurassic aged porphyry intrusion. 

This is the first time that the entire project has been consolidated under one operator. In 2017 a high-resolution helicopter-borne magnetic and radiometric survey was flown over the entire property on 200-metre spacings. Successful surface rock chip sampling programs have been undertaken since 1963 on individual claims. These programs returned surface rock chip sample assays over 0.3% copper and 0.3 grams per tonne gold from the porphyry copper-gold target including results of up to 1% copper and 0.5 grams per tonne gold. Five kilometres to the west, 36 boulders of up to two metres in diameter from an epithermal gold-silver target returned up to 252 grams per tonne gold with an average of 24 grams per tonne gold.
