Champion South (Silver Crown) Property

TARGET: Gold-silver carbonate replacement deposits; shear-hosted and stratabound silver-gold/base metal deposits.
LOCATION: 25 km northeast of Stewart near Stewart Highway, contiguous with southern boundary of the Champion property and eastern boundary of Mountain Boy/Decade Red Cliff property, 2 km northeast of Red Cliff mine.
STAGE: Grassroots; building on sporadic early work.
PREMISE: Immediately adjacent to the past producing Red Cliff mine that yielded ore in the early 1900s grading 5% copper and modern drill results that include multiple-ounce intersections of gold. Situated along the highly prospective American Creek corridor, immediately south of a historic high-grade silver mine. The working model is that the robust mineralizing system that produced the adjacent deposits underlies this property.
PRIOR WORK: Immediately adjacent to the property, mines operated intermittently from 1915 to 1937; little work was done until 1990 when the area was covered by an airborne geophysical survey. In spite of the highly prospective nature of the property and adjacent production, little other work has been conducted.
OWNERSHIP: Option to acquire 100%, 2% NSR .
SIZE: 252 ha
INFRASTRUCTURE: Electrical transmission line and paved Stewart Highway cross the south of the property.
