Eskay Mining Corp
Eskay Mining Corp holds 130,000 acres in the Golden Triangle of British Columbia. These claims adjoin and share the same geology as the world-class Eskay Creek Mine, the highest-grade volcanogenic massive sulfide gold deposit in the world. Geological work conducted in 2020 by the team led by Dr. John DeDecker (VP Exploration) has led to a major revision of the understanding of the geology and styles of precious metal mineralization on Eskay’s property. Notably, previously unrecognized stratiform mineralization identical to the lower mudstone and even lower mudstone horizons at Eskay Creek have been identified at the SIB, Lulu, TV, Jeff, C10, and Spearhead Au-bearing VMS deposits. These deposits represent VMS systems on both the western and eastern limbs of the highly prospective Eskay anticline. New drilling, re-examination of historic drill core, and field mapping has shown the Eskay anticline to extend much further south than previously mapped. A BLEG survey of the property conducted in 2020 has identified several unexplored prospects along the Eskay anticline and beyond.
A $15 million 30,000 meter drill program will be conducted in 2021 to expand the footprints of the Au-rich TV and Jeff deposits, follow up on several Au-bearing stratiform mineralized horizons at SIB-Lulu, and drill under-explored targets at C10, Tet, GFJ, and Spearhead. An extensive geologic mapping program will better define the geology of the Eskay anticline, and follow up on prospective areas identified by the 2020 BLEG program.
