Whiting Creek

At the Whiting Creek prospect (a portion of the Huckleberry claim group, located 8 km from the processing plant), the 2016 exploration program continued to expand the potential of this large area of porphyry mineralization. Drilling confirmed the potential to expand the Main Zone, which hosts the probable reserves that are included in the current mine plan. Three diamond drill holes were drilled to test the edges of the Creek zone at Whiting Creek, one of three known zones of mineralization at Whiting Creek. All three holes intersected copper mineralization with WC16-01 intersecting 70.1 m of 0.39% copper and 0.02% molybdenum from surface, WC-16-02 intersecting 222.5 m of 0.31% copper and 0.02% molybdenum, both mineralized intervals starting from near surface, and WC16-03 intersecting 152.4 m of 0.25% copper and 0.02% molybdenum, starting at a depth of approximately 185.0 m. The drilling shows the Creek zone is open to the west and has potential to have higher grades as the intercept in WC16-01 included a 36.6 m intercept of 0.57% copper.

A comprehensive review of the exploration potential of the entire property is being conducted.
