Spanish Mountain West Project

Spanish Mountain

Consisting of 4 prospective mineral claims with over 1,000 hectares in the Spanish Mountain Gold Camp. Portions of the property included ground under the GAP, CEDAR CREEK and Jun 11 showings.

Locally, cherts interbedded with fine grained andesitic tuffs and argillites host pyrite. In 1984, a pyrite-rich sample (6306) assayed 1.08 grams per tonne gold (ARIS 12778) and in close proximity former pits, trenches and a caved adit exposed a 6 metre wide quartz vein in argillites. In 1984, samples assayed from 0.5 to 0.7 gram per tonne gold and 10 to 20 grams per tonne silver (ARIS12778). In 2003, samples yielded up to 0.245 gram per tonne gold and 0.103 per cent copper (Assessment Report 27245).

Similar mineralization is also reported in former pits on the south side of Cedar Creek. In 1984, samples assayed up to 0.54 gram per tonne gold (ARIS 12778).
