Junker Project

The Junker Property is located in British Columbia's Toodoggone district known as the "Golden Horseshoe" part of the world-renowned Golden Triangle in the Omineca/Liard mining division.

The property area is underlain by lower to middle Jurassic marine sedimentary and volcanic rock of the Hazelton group geology and was originally identified in 1995 by the British Columbia Geological Survey's Regional Geochemical Survey (RGS), in which a silt sample from the creek draining the basin in the central part of the Junker claim recorded 175 parts per billion gold (Au).

In 2004 an exploration program consisting of field sampling program has the following results:

  • Pyritic quartz vein subcrop yielded 0.1 per cent copper and 1.08 grams per tonne gold (sample 151405, ARIS 27637).
  • A dacitic subcrop sample containing thin quartz stringers with pyrite yielded 0.2 per cent lead and 8.64 grams per tonne silver (sample 151401, ARIS 27637). This sample was located about 500 metres east of sample 151405.
  • Several other float samples on the Junkers property in 2004 assayed between 1 and 4.1 grams per tonne gold (ARIS 27637).

The property has a magnetic high and low signature and first vertical derivative anomaly and dextral slip fault running through the property. Gold mineralization has been known to be dominantly controlled by post collisional dextral strike-slip faults.
