Kootenay Expands Claims at Mystery Project, 50km South of Houston, Central British Columbia

Canada NewsWire

  • Mystery project totals 12,193 hectares in Shelford Hills area of Central B.C.
  • New Claims expand on prospective ground already held by Kootenay
  • Historical and current exploration support the potential for Mystery to host a Blackwater-style epithermal system.

VANCOUVER, BC, Aug. 3, 2022 /CNW/ – Kootenay Resources Inc. (the “Company” or “Kootenay”) is pleased to announce the staking of additional mineral claims at the Mystery Project, located 50 kilometres south of Houston B.C. in the northern Nechako plateau region of Central British Columbia. The new mineral concessions were staked in response to recent prospecting activities targeting the region’s potential for a Blackwater-style epithermal system and increase Mystery’s surface area to 12,193 hectares in 14 mineral claims.  The Mystery project adds to an impressive portfolio of grass-roots exploration properties in the region already held by Kootenay.

The Nechako plateau is an underexplored yet highly prospective region, specifically targeted by the Company’s generative program since 2014.  Work to date has produced several high-quality grass-roots discoveries. The most advanced property is the “Two Times Fred”, a large, low-sulphidation gold-silver vein system under option to a Centerra Gold Inc. subsidiary (“Centerra”). (see News release dated May 30, 2021).

Kootenay’s crews continue to prospect and sample Mystery as part of a larger campaign to advance the Company’s portfolio of Nechako properties during the 2022 exploration field season.

Mystery Project

Situated in the Shelford Hills area south of Houston B.C., the Company considers the project prospective for a Blackwater style epithermal system or a transitional porphyry/epithermal system similar to that of the historical Equity Silver Mine.  The project is underlain largely by Cretaceous aged Kasalka Group volcanic rocks. Local granodiorite to monzonite intrusions and younger volcanic units are also recognized.  The property was first identified during the 1960s by regional stream sediment program which yielded silver and zinc anomalies in the area now referred to as Mystery.  Subsequent years saw sporadic exploration targeting either porphyry copper or intermediate to low-sulphidation epithermal mineralization. In additional to extensive alteration zones and geochemical anomalies, historical geophysics returned both interesting magnetic anomalies and I.P. chargeability anomalies worthy of follow up.
