Sun Summit Minerals Corp. (TSX.V: SMN) is pleased to announce the discovery of a strong high-charge ability and high-resistivity anomaly at the Eagle Eye target from their recent Induced Polarization geophysical survey. This survey was conducted across the 33,000-acre Buck Project in central British Columbia as part of a comprehensive exploration program.
The Eagle Eye IP grid consisted of four 100-meter-wide east-west-oriented lines and a reconnaissance line 550 meters to the north, covering a total of 10.3 kilometers of surveyed lines. Dipoles spaced 100 meters apart were used to take readings.
Versatile Time Domain Electromagnetic geophysical data (Eagle Eye) covering an area of about 3.0 by 2.5 kilometers show a number of broad, high-resistivity anomalies. Near the southeastern resistivity anomaly, a near-surface, high-chargeability anomaly has been identified. Strongly quartz-pyrite-altered volcanic and intrusive rocks have been observed crossing the target in an east-west ravine. The new IP geophysics data agrees with the 2004 survey data and suggests that the sulfide-rich bedrock source is approximately 700 by 600 meters in size. Further exploration, including drill testing, is required to follow up on the target to investigate the source of the geophysical anomalies, which coincide with a broad zinc and arsenic soil geochemical anomaly. The geochemical sampling and IP survey results will identify new priority drilling targets in these untested areas.
According to Sun Summit President Sharyn Alexander, the recently completed IP survey has confirmed that there may be additional prospective targets throughout the Buck Project. Because of the favorable lithologies, geophysical anomalies, and sulfide-mineralized showings at Eagle Eye, this untested target has a high prospectivity. IRK grid and all assay results from our property-wide geochemical, soil, and rocks surveys will be available soon. We can assess all available data to identify new high-priority drill targets once drilling resumes at Buck.
