About Silver Queen project
The Silver Queen project is a premier gold-silver property with over 100 years of historical exploration and development and is located adjacent to power, roads and rail with significant mining infrastructure that was developed under previous operators Bradina joint venture (Bralorne Mines) and Houston Metals Corp. (a Hunt Brothers company). The property contains two historical declines into the No. 3 vein, camp infrastructure and a maintained tailings facility.
The Silver Queen property consists of 45 mineral claims, 17 Crown grants and two surface Crown grants totalling 18,852 hectares with no underlying royalties. Mineralization is hosted by a series of epithermal veins distributed over a six-square-kilometre area.
On Dec. 1, 2022, the company reported an independently estimated mineral resource estimate (MRE) for Silver Queen which increased an earlier MRE, initially reported on July 16, 2019, by over 187 per cent in the indicated category and by over 30 per cent in the inferred category on a silver equivalent basis with approximately 74 per cent of the new MRE classified as indicated resources. The company has expended $6.75-million on exploration of the Silver Queen project since 2019, resulting in a very low discovery cost of 15 cents/ounce of added AgEq or $11/oz of added gold equivalent. The MRE remains open for additional delineation west of the Camp target and within the Sveinson target. In addition, there are several targets that have only been tested by a few drill holes and remain very attractive areas for new discoveries and MRE increase.
For more information on the recent MRE, please refer to the company's news releases dated Dec. 1, 2022, and Jan. 16, 2023.
