Capsule Geology

The area of the CCM showing is underlain by marine sedimentary and volcanic rocks of the Stuhini Group. Bedded argillite and andesitic pyroclastics were encountered in the showing area.

Prospecting on the CCM 3 claim revealed an area of quartz and/or calcite with pyrite veining on the east side of Ceperley Glacier. Most of the rock sample results were low with the exception of sample 33239 which assayed 1.06 grams per tonne gold from a 0.5-metre-wide quartz vein exposed over a length of 4 metres (Assessment Report 21323).

Work History

Refer to the nearby VR4 showing for details of the VR property work history which encompassed the CCM claims in the late 1987 to 1990.

In 2006 and 2007, Hathor Exploration Ltd. completed a 7228.7 line-kilometre airborne geophysical survey on the area as the BJ claims of the Iskut project. In 2008, Max Minerals Ltd. examined the property.

In 2020, Eskay Mining Corp. completed a program of prospecting, rock sampling, ground and airborne geophysical surveys and 4335 metres of diamond drilling in 20 holes on the area as part of the Sib-Corey-North Mitchell property. The geophysical surveys consisted of a 911.7 line-kilometre airborne electromagnetic survey, a 55.85 line-kilometre induced polarization survey and a 43.19 line-kilometre magnetotelluric survey. Drilling was performed on the TV (MINFILE 104B 385) and Jeff (MINFILE 104B 525) occurrences.
