Metallis Resources Inc. (TSX.V: MTS) has completed the 2022 exploration program at its 100%-owned Kirkham Property in Eskay Camp of the Golden Triangle, northwestern British Columbia, a region renowned worldwide for the Eskay Creek and Snip gold mines, the Seabridge KSM porphyry deposits, and the operating Brucejack gold mine of Newcrest Mining, all of which are located nearby. The primary goal of the 2022 drilling at the South Cliff-Miles porphyry corridor was to extend and undercut the best drill results on the property. The Hawilson Porphyry Complex (KH18-16, with 0.8 g/t AuEq over 118 m including 0.96 g/t AuEq over 84 m, and KH19-30 with 0.5 g/t AuEq over 126.55 m) was drilled using a single cost and time-efficient drill pad to avoid costly weather-related delays similar to those suffered by Metallis and other projects in 2021, and by many other projects in 2022. ZTEM data and soil sampling were also collected along the Hawilson Trend – a long magnetic anomaly that parallels the Cliff-Miles Half Graben – and the “Max” magnetic anomaly. ALS Labs has received all core and surface samples for assay. Quality assurance/quality control validation must be completed before assay results are reported.
Metallis’ Exploration Vice President, Dave Dupre P. Geo., remarked, “The 2022 exploration program was carried out expertly by all concerned. I am pleased with our team’s achievements, and I must express my appreciation to all contractors who met our team’s needs above and beyond. I hope the upcoming results will validate our belief that we have had a successful venture.”
