As previously reported (see news release dated 06/14/12), Blind Creek crews in June 2011 found mineralized gossan rock float hosting malachite - azurite as well traces of copper sulphides, within the Blende-Ocelot claim block which is adjacent to the ATAC claim block, Mayo Mining District, Yukon. Two rock float samples delivered to the laboratory then, returned 287 ppm and 468 ppm silver, 0.569 ppm and 0.969 ppm gold, 4380 ppm and 8700 ppm copper, as well as 247 and 506 ppm arsenic.
Between 12th-19th June 2012 similar but more persistent copper sulphide-carbonate mineralization has been identified within a 5 metre wide north-south shear zone traceable over 1000 metres.
These copper sulphides are interpreted to be skarn related, hosted within a Triassic (or older) complex of sills, dikes and intrusions of variable diorite composition.
Stage 1 field work for 2012 has also been completed on the Keno Silver Project and the Yukon Carlin Trend Project.
All remaining samples from these projects are being prepared for delivery to the laboratory by 25th June, 2012.
