Capsule Geology

The Mo occurrence is located approximately 400 metres northwest of the peak of Cinder Hill and 6.5 kilometres northeast of Jim Black Lake.

The area is underlain by Guichon variety (Highland Valley phase) and Hybrid phase quartz diorite or granodiorite of the Upper Triassic to Lower Jurassic Guichon Creek Batholith.

Locally, chalcopyrite and bornite associated with specular hematite-quartz-tourmaline occur in fracture fillings as irregular and discontinuous patches.

Work History

In 1973, Quintana Minerals Corporation completed geological mapping, drill road construction and one percussion drill hole, totalling 61 metres. In 1979, Invex Resources Ltd. conducted a VLF-EM16 survey.

In 2004, Getty Copper Inc. completed a drilling and drill geochemical sampling program on the Getty Copper property. A total of 3984.1 metres of drilling was completed and 257 core samples were submitted for assay.

In 2017, an airborne magnetic survey was completed by Peter E. Walcott & Associates Limited over the Getty property. The survey comprised 697 line-kilometres of magnetics over two grid areas.

In 2019, a direct current resistivity survey and a passive seismic survey were completed by Peter E. Walcott & Associates Limited at multiple locations on the Getty property.

In 2020, Peter E. Walcott & Associates Limited carried out a review of historical induced polarization data taken from portions of the Getty property. No interpretations are presented because the work is part of a detailed compilation that was still ongoing at the time of writing.
