W inte r 20 1 9 47 complete about 3,000 m in 10 to 15 holes by the end of 2019. Some published intersections are consistent with narrow gold vein mineralization like that mined historically in the Zeballos Camp and include: 1,386.5 g/t Au across 0.3 m in the recently discovered 88 vein; 5.81 g/t Au across 7.12 m in a 50 m step out from the Prident mine; and 24.20 g/t Au across 0.55 m in an 80 m step out from the White Star mine. Privateer is a private company working mainly on Crown-granted mineral claims, and is not obligated to release results. They acquired additional mineral Crown grants (Central Zeballos property) from CanAlaska Uranium Ltd. Engold Mine Ltd. drilled its Lac La Hache project in early 2019, stepping out at the Aurizon target. Initial results extended narrow quartz-carbonate gold veins along strike. Engold resumed drilling later in the year and carried out soil surveys on four target areas. At the Ladner Gold project, New Carolin Gold Corp. mobilized for 1,000 m of underground drilling on the footprint of the Carolin Mine. The fall program also included mapping and sampling to generate near- surface targets. New Destiny Mining Corp. drilled at the Treasure Mountain Silver project. The first holes were to test a porphyry copper- gold target (Superior), the site of recent trenching and historical trenches and adits. In 2019, Academy Metals Inc. (formerly Unity Metals Corp.) explored several properties adjacent to the Phillips Arm gold camp, including Margurete and Hewitt Point. Packsack drill and outcrop samples produced several results of greater than 10 g/t Au. Packsack drill results included a 2 m core sample grading 6.18 g/t Au and 8.1 g/t Ag and a 0.38 m sample grading 8.62 g/t Au and 3.8 g/t Ag. Blue Lagoon Resources Inc. collected rock and soil samples at the Pellaire project, and carried out a ground magnetometer survey. Recent samples from a 1998-1999 bulk sample stockpile averaged 6.24 g/t Au and 25.95 g/t Ag. Spanish Mountain Gold Ltd. continued metallurgical testing and investigating alternatives for developing the Spanish SC & SW REGIONS Klohn.indd 1 2019-01-14 11:47 AM Eagle Mapping.indd 1 2018-10-23 1:41 PM Precision Petrographics Ltd. 604.282.7333 | www.precisionpetrographics.com – Polished Thin Sections – Kimberlites – Thin Sections – Polished Thick Sections – Core Display Boxes – Display Polishing – Fluid Inclusion – Petrographic Descriptions 203 - 20445 62 Avenue, Langley, BC V3A 5E6
