Foremore Project | More Creek Corridor
- High-grade, vein-hosted gold-silver mineralization in combination with precious metal-enriched base metal mineralization spans a distance of 7 km along the northeast-trending More Creek Corridor (MCC) beginning immediately north of the Westmore discovery.
- Significant historical data has been supplemented by Sassy Gold programs completed to date including initial drilling in 2020, detailed surface sampling and mapping, and geophysical surveys including a full-scale VTEM Survey.
- The VTEM Survey, the first of its kind flown at Foremore, has provided important structural data and a base for continued mapping controls on base metal and precious metal mineralization occurring throughout the corridor.
- Shallow drilling by Sassy in 2020 returned semi-massive and massive sulphides in 7 of 9 holes at the historic BRT target including an 8-m core interval grading 4.35 g/t AuEq (FM20-01), extending this zone along strike to the north and south. Individual narrower intersections assayed as high as 7.97 g/t Au (FM20-03), 453.00 g/t Ag (FM20-07), 11.82% Zn (FM20-01), 0.75% Cu (FM20-02) and 6.37% Pb (FM20-08).
- Sassy’s drilling suggests the stratiform style semi-massive to massive mineralization is deepening along strike to the north at BRT and remains open to the south.

High-grade mineralization has been found at and near-surface at BRT through sampling and drilling.
- One of the exploration objectives is to vector toward potential metal-rich feeder systems at depth where, for example, historic drilling at the Ryder Zone at the northern end of the MCC (2 km north of BRT) cut an 0.80-meter interval at 202.8 meters downhole that assayed 26.5 g/t Au, 85 g/t Ag, 8.6% Zn, 2.2% Cu and 1.28% Pb (drill hole FM04-32).
- Stratigraphic and geochemical similarities in mineralization occurring either at surface or at depth at various showings along the corridor, combined with successful testing of conductive response of More Creek VMS-style of mineralization, is leading to a valuable model for advanced exploration of this well-mineralized multiple target area. More work is required to determine whether these occurrences are connected at depth and potentially form one large system, or are individual bodies of mineralization in a “cluster” or “camp” as is often seen in VMS districts.
- Preliminary geochemical studies suggest that arsenic (As), cadmium (Cd), antimony (Sb), selenium (Se) and tellurium (Te) are important pathfinder elements at BRT that will be critical in the search for new mineralized zones across the MCC and possibly elsewhere at the Foremore Project.
Mr. Ian Fraser, Sassy VP-Exploration, commented: “it is exciting to contemplate the sources of what appear to be at least two distinct styles of mineral deposition occurring within the More Creek Corridor. There is much work to done here to unlock the secrets of this corridor but we’re greatly encouraged by all the data we’ve compiled.”
