I am very pleased to have these two very talented individuals overseeing this important phase of the project.”


2022 Drilling Program


Historic exploration revealed many indications to a potential concealed intrusive of copper/gold mineralization in the skarns, the free gold, epithermal zones, and a massive sulfide epithermal zone. There are also indications of a potential porphyry/skarn linkage (Evans, 2005).

About the Come By Chance Project

The Come By Chance (CBC) property is situated in the Greenwood mining camp, considered to be one of the highest concentrated areas of past producing mines in North America


Although the Phoenix mine was the major producer, some of the smaller mines were also productive from a number of different types of deposits. From 1900 to 1975 production from these 26 principal mines was produced over 600 million pounds of copper and 1.4 million ounces of gold (Church, 1986).
