A new mineralized feldspar porphyry intrusion has been intersected for the first time in Hole 10 (DD18-SS010) which intersected over 400 metres of copper mineralization extending the entire length of the hole, ending in mineralization at a final depth of 490m. Ongoing drilling continues to expand the known mineralization along strike and at depth. Additional holes have been completed adjacent to DD18-SS010 on a 100 metre spaced drill grid, with assays pending.
The 2,136 hectare Stars Property is an exploration stage porphyry copper-gold-silver molybdenum project. The property is situated 60 km north-northwest of Goldcorp Canada Ltd.’s past producing Equity Silver Mine. Imperials Metals Corp.’s Huckleberry Copper-Gold-Silver mine lies 58 km to the south of the Stars Property.
Most major deposits/mines/past producing mines in this area are situated on or near a major geological contact.
The Stars property is situated on one of these major geological contacts
New Geophysics Has Identified a New Porphyry System
The recent detailed airborne magnetic survey identified a cluster of covered and untested circular magnetic anomalies between the two zones drilled in the current program.
Multiple (“cluster”) targets are centered within a larger ovoid magnetic “ring” (skarn?) feature (or “magnetic halo”) approximately 5 kilometres in diameter.
The large size of the magnetic anomaly indicates the property is host to a large mineralizing system.
Drilling is focused on coincident Magnetic Low / IP Chargeability High anomalies
