Winter 20 1 6 59 PHOTO GOVERNMENT OF BRITISH COLUMBIA company plans to evaluate Craigmont's low-grade stockpiles as potential feed for Teck's mill at Highland Valley Copper. Kaizen Discovery Inc. returned to the Aspen Grove copper-gold project. Drilling probed the continuity and tenor of mineralization in the Ketchan Lake pluton that extends across an area 500 by 1,800 metres. Kaizen also owns the nearby Par prospect in a 60/40 joint venture between Kaizen and ITOCHU Corporation. Engold Mines Ltd. (formerly GWR Resources Inc.) focused on the Aurizon- South breccia zone on its Lac La Hache property. The company hopes to demonstrate that the shape, tonnage and grade of this zone will support mining by bulk-tonnage methods. The company also drilled the Berkey zone, a 2015 discovery of disseminated copper and gold. Amarc Resources Ltd.'s Ike porphyry copper-molybdenum-silver project is advancing through a partnership with Thompson Creek Metals Company Inc. Under an option agreement with a Korean consortium (Nexgeo Inc. and Korea Resources Corporation), Plate Resources Inc. continued to explore the Lucky Mike property. In 2016, the company focused on drilling a copper- molybdenum stockwork discovered in 2015. Tungsten skarn At the Fox tungsten property, Happy Creek Minerals Ltd. continued trenching and drilling to define the extent, grade and continuity of scheelite mineralization. Stratiform base metal projects (VMS, SEDEX) Late in 2015, Troymet Exploration Corp. acquired the Redhill property and explored volcanogenic massive sulphide (VMS) copper-zinc and gold targets. Redhill geology has been correlated with the assemblage that hosts the Kutcho Creek copper-zinc deposit in northern B.C. Drilling started in September 2016. Pacific Ridge Exploration Ltd. optioned the TL Zinc project. The company plans to drill coincident anomalies defined by 2012 electromagnetic and 2016 gravity surveys.
