Commodity: Gold-enriched copper porphyry mineralization Location: British Columbia, Canada Size: 2,600 hectares Status: Seeking JV partner Stage:
Ready for grid-based RC drilling
The Lemon Lake Project is a 2,600 hectare early-stage property prospective for gold-enriched copper porphyry mineralization located 6 kilometres east of the Horsefly in the Cariboo Mountains, British Columbia.
The Lemon Lake property is:
- Located in a geologically highly prospective region known to host gold-enriched copper and copper-molybdenum porphyry deposits including the active mines at Gibraltar and Mount Polley and the Woodjam Deposit directly to the South of Lemon Lake.
- Geologically highly prospective, containing a multiphase alkalic batholith intruded into rocks of the Triassic Quesnel terrane, the same belt of rocks that host the Afton Cu-Au and Highland Valley Cu-Mo deposits to the South.
- 100% owned by Evrim
- A drill-ready target
- Road accessible.
The Lemon Lake stock is a 5 by 3 km zoned composite alkalic stock that evolves from north to south broadly fractionating from gabbro, to diorite then finally monzonite intruding Takla Formation sediments. The project is covered in a thin, but widespread ablation till masking the underlying geology and alteration. However, sparse outcrop (<2%), float and historic drilling reveal a potassic altered core (K-Feldspar and biotite alteration) centred on the monzonite phase with a more distal propylitic alteration assemblage (chlorite, pyrite, epidote and calcite).
In 1974 the Hudson Bay Oil and Gas Company drilled 11 shallow percussion holes into the alteration zone and hole 74 L-4 intersected .25% copper over 21.3 metres from 21 metres within a 61m deep hole. Gold was not assayed. The recommendation was to follow-up this intersection to the north and west however this was never completed, and subsequent owners tested gold and PGE targets in other parts of the property.
In 2012, a 3D Induced Polarization survey was completed that reveals hole 74 L-4 clipped the edge of a 2 ,800m by 600m chargeability zone centred on the altered monzonite phase of the intrusion and is coincident with a copper and gold in historic soils anomaly.
The property is ready for a grid-based RC drilling program to test beneath the thin till cover and define the centre of the porphyry target within the large geophysical, geochemical and alteration footprint.
The Lemon Lake property is located in the traditional territories of the Williams Lake Indian Band and Xatśūll First Nation with whom Evrim is committed to developing a positive mutually beneficial relationship based on respect and transparency.
