Granite Creek Copper Ltd announced an update on progress on its 2019 data compilation work at the Stu Copper-Gold Project in the Minto Copper District of Canada’s Yukon Territory. Compilation and initial field work have resulted in the identification four multi-kilometer target areas including the newly identified “East Target” as defined by soil geochemistry. The Company initiated compilation work in May, following an examination of the extensive, privately held exploration database acquired in February and a comprehensive review of public archives. Results from the compilation work have identified several high-priority targets, including a newly identified 2km x 4km copper-in-soil anomaly along the northeast side of the project. Field work was initiated at the site in June including ground truthing of the identified targets, collecting surface samples, and staking claims. Initial rock and soil samples have been sent for assay and results are expected in mid-summer 2019. The Company has, thus far in 2019, staked an additional 21 claims expanding the land package to 115 km2.

Mr Tim Johnson, Granite Creek President & CEO, said that “We are very encouraged with the results from our first pass compilation and initial field work that has identified four multi-kilometer-scale exploration targets that show the potential for rapid advancement to drill testing. These results are a testament to the under-explored potential of this part of the high-grade Minto Copper District. Our experienced exploration team will continue to employ a systematic approach to exploration as we move into the second phase of the 2019 field season, which will include geological mapping, multi-element soil and rock sampling and possible additional geophysical surveys.”
