Big Bulk is a porphyry copper-gold project located 50 km southeast of Stewart, BC in the Golden Triangle. Big Bulk is a multiphase late Triassic intrusion hosted in Hazelton and Stuhini volcanics with sediments analogous to Galore Creek and KSM. From 2001 to 2003, the project was explored by Teck and Canadian Empire. Drilling in 2003 intercepted 21 metres of 0.86% Cu and 0.4 g/t Au from a depth of 12 metres and 53 metres of 0.31% Cu and 0.2 g/t Au from 143 metres depth to the end of the hole. The hole was not followed up on.
New interpretations indicate that the target is a much larger calc-alkaline porphyry system tilted on its side with higher grade mineralization in a discrete mineralized phase that historic drilling did not target. Big Bulk is fully permitted and drill ready with a 2,000 metre initial diamond drill program planned for August 2021.
