IKE Project

Empress Deposit

The higher grade Empress Cu-Au-Ag replacement deposit (Empress Deposit) and surrounding Greater Empress area, located 6 km N of the IKE Deposit, form a sizable 35 km2 subarea within the IKE District.

Empress Deposit Highlights

  • Historical drilling indicates a significant body of good grade Cu-Au-Ag mineralization, which remains open to expansion
  • Common high-grade drill intercepts (see Empress Table) and relatively good vertical and lateral grade continuity suggest strong potential for discovery of new good grade Cu-Au-Ag extensions
  • Interpretation from a limited number of historical drill holes suggests the nearby, underexplored and shallowly concealed Granite porphyry Cu-Au-Ag-Mo deposit target is a probable source of Empress replacement mineralizing fluids
  • The few drill holes into the Granite porphyry include, for example, an intercept of 92 m of 0.38% CuEQ1 @ 0.22% Cu, 0.23 g/t Au, 0.008% Mo and 0.4 g/t Ag in hole 91-49
  1. See IKE Report

Options for the efficient and expeditious advancement of the Empress Deposit and Granite deposit target are currently under consideration.
