Mountain Boy Minerals Ltd reported assay results for the Southmore More Creek property, located 40 kilometres northwest of the historic Eskay Creek Mine. Three companies are actively exploring on adjacent properties in the area. The MTB claims are within 8 kms of the Galore Creek access road. The recent field results build on results from 1990 which were not previously followed up.


Initial MTB field-work confirmed the historic showings and identified new zones of interest, some of which were ice-covered at the time of the previous work.

Identification of a large zone of intense hydrothermal alteration

Samples with multi-gram gold and strong base metal assays demonstrate mineralization over an extensive area.

The results point to the presence of mineralized systems similar geologically and in scale to other large deposits in the region.

The Mountain Boy team spent 8-man days mapping the geology, alteration and structure as well as sampling outcrop for geochemical analysis. Samples taken validate historic assays and outline new areas of mineralization.
