W inte r 20 1 9 49 Also investigating Miocene porphyry- style mineralization, Tocvan Ventures Corp. collected 48 grab samples at the Rogers Creek project, returning up to 2.41 g/t Au. An IP survey is permitted. Karmamount Mineral Exploration Inc. carried out an IP survey at its Yreka project to test possible porphyry stockwork mineralization west of the Yreka past Cu- Au-Ag producer. Lines also extended over the known Cu-Au skarn mineralization. Dunnedin Ventures Inc. reported rock geochemistry results for its MPD project, including 0.89 per cent Cu across 46 m and 3.26 g/t Au across 7.0 m in resampling of historic trenches. Other work included mapping, prospecting, soil geochemistry and drilling. MPD is a consolidation of the Man, Prime and Dillard properties. Troubadour Resources Inc. carried out mapping, prospecting, sampling and drilling at its Amarillo Cu porphyry project in 2019, following drilling at the end of 2018. Pacific Ridge Exploration Ltd. drilled at the Spius project in 2019. All four holes (1,087 m in total) intersected porphyry-style alteration and mineralization. Although sub- economic, Cu concentrations increased with depth in two of the holes, which suggested a deeper target to the company. Jiulian Resources Inc. drilled more than 4,000 m in nine holes at the Big Kidd project in 2019. As at Spius, results confirmed porphyry- style alteration and mineralization and the company is considering deeper drilling. At Mackenzie Copper, Carube Copper Corp. reported mapping and sampling on two of three known Cu trends. The combined Rateria-West Valley project was active in 2019. Happy Creek Minerals Ltd. has defined new porphyry Cu targets at West Valley and followed up with mapping, sampling and IP surveying. Base and precious metal projects Imperial Metals Corporation and partners are following their 2018 deep drilling program at Ruddock Creek with an 8,000 m program focused on a westward extension of the deposit. Partners in the project are Mitsui Mining and Smelting Co. Ltd. (30 per cent), THWEST REGIONS C M Y CM MY CY CMY K
