This vision drives value for the company while maintaining in an interest in the projects we pick.
The Lunar Frog gold property (the "Property") consists of six mineral claims comprising 10, 211 hectares well within the Stikine Terrane and is located north of the Kemess-Toodoggone porphyry gold-copper/epithermal gold district of British Columbia. The Property has 18 known mineral showings ranging from Porphyry Copper-Molybdenum-Gold, Copper-Gold Quartz Veins, Platinum and Palladium. The Property is located approximately 170 kilometres east-southeast of Dease Lake, a small northern community on the Stewart-Cassiar Highway.
Sample highlights include:
– Grab sample of 1.8 g/t gold, 5.3 g/t silver and 0.502% copper
– Float sample of 1.8 g/t gold, 27 g/t silver and 4.28% copper
– Grab sample of 0.7 g/t gold, 49 g/t silver and 0.989% copper
Porphyry Copper-Gold targets
The assemblage of the Stu/Frog showings are excellent examples of Porphyry Copper-Molybdenum-Gold targets on the Lunar Frog property.
Regionally, the Stu/Frog showings area lies on the western edge of the Omineca Belt near the Kutcho fault, marking the boundary with rocks of the Intermontane Belt. The area is underlain by Early Jurassic granodioritic intrusive rocks of the Pitman Batholith with minor roof pendants of metavolcanic and metasedimentary rocks.
Several gossanous areas, quartz veins, minor malachite stains and sulphide occurrences were found in the southeastern portions of the Property, almost solely in the gabbro-diorite unit. Similar sulphide occurrences were found in the northwestern part of the complex, although quartz veins and gossans were less abundant.
In 2012, a sample (129292) assayed 1.8 g/t gold, 5.3 g/t silver and 0.502% copper, whereas float samples from the area yielded up to 1.8 g/t gold, 27 g/t silver and 4.28% copper. Other samples (129123 and 129146) from near the peak of the mountain assayed 0.7 and 0.4 g/t gold and 49 and 15 g/t silver with 3.28 and 0.989% copper, respectively (Assessment Report 33391).
Also in 2012, in other areas of the Property several (128845 and 128846) samples yielded 0.541 and 0.612 % copper with 11.7 and 18.5 g/t silver while a kilometre away a sample (129668) assayed 1.64 % copper, 25.7 g/t silver and 1.02 g/t gold (Assessment Report 33391).
Copper-Gold Quartz Veins
The Lunar Frog property’s potential for Copper-Gold Quartz Veins is illustrated by the sampling of Hard Creek Nickel Mining. The 2006 sampling resulted in sample 359344 yielding 0.335% copper, 0.22 g/t gold and 4 g/t silver (Assessment Report 29063). The sample was described as a quartz vein with copper stains. The area is underlain by mid Triassic to lower Jurassic Takla Group mafic volcanics and the mid Triassic Lunar Creek Ultramafic Complex. The oldest lithologies in the region are Stikine terrane mixed greenstone metamorphics and undivided sediments of the Devonian to Permian Asitka Group. The strata is intruded by Early and Middle Jurassic granodiorite and Late Triassic quartz monzonite
