Foremore Project | Hanging Valley

  • The Hanging Valley on the eastern side of Foremore is defined by multiple precious and base metal showings and various mineralization styles over broad areas.
  • Very under-explored with only limited mapping, sampling and historic drilling.
  • Extensive glacial retreat has opened up large swaths of new ground for exploration.
  • Sassy surface sampling along the Sunday-Boulder lineament returned up to 142 g/t Au.
  • High-grade gold values from additional in-situ surface samples over a 1 km strike length at Boulder included 8 g/t, 36.3 g/t, 24.6 g/t, 20.9 g/t, and 13.9 g/t Au.
  • 2 km north of Boulder, an outcrop grab sample returned 10 g/t Au, 156 g/t Ag, 19.7% combined Zn-Pb and 0.14% Cu.
  • 2 km south of Boulder, a surface sample featuring massive chalcopyrite within a limestone host returned 21.4% Cu and 12.7 g/t Ag at the Heather Showing.

Ian Fraser, Sassy VP Exploration, commented: “Gold-silver-rich mineralization in the Sunday-Boulder area is associated with mafic volcanics and a mafic volcanic/limestone contact. This interpreted replacement-style mineralization differs from the VMS-style mineralization occurring elsewhere in the Hanging Valley, such as the SG showing to the north. The Hanging Valley certainly underscores the scale potential of the Foremore project and how richly mineralized it is.”
