Epithermal gold and silver mineralization
The More Creek property comprises five mineral tenures totalling 6,430 hectares in the Golden Triangle District of northwest British Columbia. The property was acquire by staking and Tower controls 100% interest.
More Creek is 120 kilometres north of Stewart, BC and benefits from close proximity to significant infrastructure such as the Northwest Transmission Line, a nearby fixed-wing aircraft runway and Highway 37, all of which are approximately 10 kilometers to the east. More Creek is approximately 55 kilometers north of Pretium Resources' significant Brucejack development project which contains a Measured and Indicated mineral resource of 9.1 million ounces of gold at an average grade of 17.2 grams per tonne gold (source, Pretium's July 21st, 2016 Press Release).
Geology and Historic Exploration
Previous work at More Creek was focused on a prominent mountain and ridge top gossan known as the Sinter zone. Geological mapping and geochemical sampling (rock, soil, and stream silts) by Noranda and Corona in the early 1990s and reconnaissance mapping by Barrick Gold and Teck Resources in the 2000's at Sinter outlined an extensive zone, up to 2 kilometers long, of strong silicification, argillic alteration and hydrothermal brecciation associated with a regional fault cutting through Upper Triassic Stuhini Group volcanic and siliciclastic rocks. This zone is characterized by highly anomalous (in rocks, soils and silts) concentrations of epithermal-gold pathfinder elements such as Hg, As and Sb. Furthermore, a creek draining the Sinter zone also contains highly anomalous concentrations of gold (up to 1.4g/t Au) in silts as noted by Noranda and Corona (BC Assessment Reports 19216 and 21311). Together, these historic data suggests the Sinter zone may represent the upper, barren zone of an epithermal gold system and gold mineralization should be targeted vertically below the outcropping alteration zone. This exploration model has not yet been tested by systematic diamond drilling.
