A Blind Creek Resources Ltd exploration team mobilizes to Table Mountain, Atlin Mining Division, northwest British Columbia to follow-up on a poly-metallic dispersion geochemical soil pattern featuring gold-silver adjacent to the prominent Nahlin Fault Z
|Vancouver, BC - Blind Creek Resources Ltd. (TSX-V: BCK) ("the Company" or "Blind Creek") reports that stage 1 of its 2012 field program in the Mayo Mining District, Yukon is now completed. |
The Blind Creek five person exploration team will now focus on Table Mountain, 15 km northwest of the historic Atlin placer gold camp.
During 2011, the Blind Creek team encountered a gold-silver geochemical soil anomaly extending over 36 hectares and which is still open. An anomalous zone of copper-molybdenum-lead-zinc extending over 100 hectares forms a halo to the gold-silver geochemical core, which also still open.
These anomalous areas fall within a gossan zone 4000 meters long and 1000 meters wide and were only partially explored in 2011.
On the west side of Table Mountain is a known placer gold creek. During the 1900's government records indicate samples from copper prospects on the east side of the mountain, the Dundee and the Petty, returned gold of $8.00 per ton value (standard reporting practices at that time). Rock formations in the Table Mountain area are deemed volcanic, and intersected by a major regional NW-SE fault, named the Nahlin Fault Zone.
Table Mountain is accessible from Atlin by a 5 minute float plane flight or a one hour jet-boat ride, and by a natural 100 km waterway to the Skagway Alaska rail head in Carcross Yukon, with road links to the Alaska Highway, via Graham Inlet and Tagish Lake.
