High-grade Cu-Au in a Tier 1 jurisdiction

  • A total area of 4056 hectares
  • Located in southern BC near major copper mines
  • Powerline and major highway crosses the property
  • BK deposit: 550 m x 500 m gold-rich breccia pipe
  • Historic drill results include 116 m of 0.79 g/t Au and 0.12% Cu and 75 m of 0.75 g/t Au and 0.25% Cu
  • Widespread Cu-Au mineralization across a 2.5 km long chargeability anomaly



The Big Kidd Property is located in the Nicola Mining Division of British Columbia immediately northeast of Aspen Grove, approximately 25km southeast of the City of Merritt, and 250km northeast of the City of Vancouver.

The Big Kidd property comprises of four mineral tenures totaling 4,056 hectares or 40.56 square kilometres. The past exploration work dating back to the early 1900’s has identified many showings in the ‘Aspen Grove Copper Camp’.

The property is Located within the Central Volcanic Facies of the Nicola Group, a narrow belt of alkaline volcanic and subvolcanic intrusive rocks, which are host to numerous alkalic porphyry Cu-Au deposits including both the Copper Mountain Mine south of Big Kidd and the Iron Mask Batholith (Afton, Ajax) to the north.

The Upper Triassic intrusions of the Big Kidd complex are consanguineous with property volcanics, having intruded their own volcanic pile. The alkaline complex features intrusives of monzonite, monzodiorite, diorite, and syenomonzonite composition, hosted within intermediate-mafic volcanic flows, tuffs and volcaniclastics. Intrusions trend southeast, with the elliptical Big Kidd breccia body exposed over aroughly 300 x 600-meter area. The breccia pipe is believed to represent a sub-verticalvolcanic neck dominated by fragments of Nicola Group volcanics and microdiorite to microsyenodiorite, and monzonite to syenomonzonite intrusives.The property straddles a triple fault junction of the Kentucky-Alleyne, Allison and Quilchena faults.West to southwest trending faults have been interpreted to lie between the Big Kidd and Big Siouxtargets and represent areas of increased alteration and fluid flow.
