Overview

Big Red comprises 20 contiguous claims totalling 26,000 hectares in northwestern British Colombia, 45 kilometres southwest of Telegraph Creek along the Glenora Road.  Big Red lies within the Golden Triangle 70 kilometres north of Galore Creek and 80 kilometres west of GT Gold’s Saddle discovery. 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 and soil sampling programs have been undertaken since 1963 on individual claims. Thirty five assessment reports have been digitized and consolidated identifying multiple porphyr copper and gold and epithermal gold and copper targets.  The Ridge epithermal target contours 0.5 gram per tonne gold over greater than a kilometre, averaging 1 gram per tonne gold, and is planned to be drilled in September.  The Copper Bowl porphyry target contours 500 ppm copper over three kilometres around the western extent of the magnetic high.
