Rockcliff Copper reports assays, geophysics from Flin Flon-Snow Lake

February 16th, 2017

by Greg Klein | February 16, 2017

As drilling continues on its Talbot property in Manitoba’s Flin Flon-Snow Lake camp, Rockcliff Copper TSXV:RCU reported promising assays and geophysics on February 16. The copper-polymetallic VMS deposit forms part of the company’s approximately 45,000-hectare Snow Lake portfolio. Rockcliff holds a 51% option on Talbot from Hudbay Minerals TSX:HBM.

Hole TB-017 on the deposit’s main lens, “in an area void of drilling,” returned the following assays:

  • 0.93% copper, 2.73 g/t gold, 0.65% zinc and 15.23 g/t silver for 3.48% copper-equivalent over 16.08 metres, starting at 774.37 metres in downhole depth

Within that interval were two overlapping intercepts:

  • 0.35% copper, 4.02 g/t gold, 0.48% zinc and 13 g/t silver for 3.77% copper-equivalent over 8.74 metres, starting at 780.63 metres

  • 1.7% copper, 4.11 g/t gold, 0.34% zinc and 19.76 g/t silver for 5.2% copper-equivalent over 3.51 metres, starting at 786.94 metres

True widths weren’t available.

Drilling now focuses on a vertical-dipping 300-by-600-metre conductive plate recently discovered below the deposit’s north lens. EM has also found a larger conductive plate below the main lens, which could represent down-dip continuity of the lens.

Additionally, the survey found a much deeper but larger flat-lying target called the west Talbot deep conductive plate, measuring about one kilometre by one kilometre.

“Most of the larger mines in the camp have multiple stacked lenses that were initially identified as conductive plates,” remarked president/CEO Ken Lapierre. “We remain greatly encouraged not only by the consistent high metal grades and increased size potential of the deposit, but by the metal potential of the untested stacked conductive plates proximal to the deposit.”

The 7,000-metre program continues until winter break-up, targeting the north lens plate and the plates below the north copper zone, 2.5 kilometres north of the deposit.

Talbot’s January 2016 resource detailed an inferred category for three zones totalling:

  • 2.17 million tonnes averaging 2.8% copper, 2.4 g/t gold, 2.2% zinc and 54.6 g/t silver for 133.6 million pounds copper, 165,400 ounces gold, 107.4 million pounds zinc and 3.81 million ounces silver

Rockcliff has work scheduled on three other Snow Lake properties this year. The past-producing Laguna gold project has a high-res magnetic survey planned, while rigs will keep busy on the Bur zinc project and Rail copper-polymetallic deposit.

The company currently has about $2 million in the bank.

As cobalt prices soar, King’s Bay expands prospects with Newfoundland acquisition

February 16th, 2017

by Greg Klein | February 16, 2017

A name and a commodity that are both objects of feverish attention seem to meet up in Newfoundland, where King’s Bay Gold TSXV:KBG has acquired the Trump Island copper-cobalt property. A 100% option announced February 16 expands the company’s cobalt prospects in Newfoundland, Labrador and Quebec.

Back in 1863 a Cornish miner sunk a six-metre shaft to follow a zone of massive chalcopyrite. He reportedly sent a shipment of high-grade copper-cobalt ore to Wales.

King’s Bay expands cobalt prospects with Newfoundland acquisition

Grab samples collected nearby in 1999 brought historic, non-43-101 results up to 3.8% copper, 0.3% cobalt, 2.9 g/t gold and 10.9 g/t silver.

The initial King’s Bay agenda would call for additional sampling, along with mapping and a local-scale electromagnetic survey on the 200-hectare property. Successful results could bring a summer drill campaign.

Subject to approvals, King’s Bay gets Trump Island for 200,000 shares at a deemed value of $0.195 and a 2% NSR.

The boat-accessible property sits seven kilometres south of Twillingate, a town immortalized in Newfoundland’s unofficial national anthem.

In Labrador, meanwhile, King’s Bay has airborne EM planned for its Lynx Lake copper-cobalt project, where grab samples have shown non-43-101 results up to 1.39% copper, 0.94% cobalt and 0.21% nickel, as well as chromium, molybdenum and vanadium values. Last month the company expanded Lynx Lake from about 2,000 hectares to approximately 24,000 hectares.

Earlier this month King’s Bay picked up three cobalt projects in Quebec. The company closed a $938,752 private placement in January.

The acquisitions come as cobalt prices continue their meteoric rise, hitting six-year highs up to $20 a pound, reported MetalBulletin.com. That represents an approximately 50% increase since September, according to Reuters. Stating that many traders are hoarding the metal, Reuters predicted a supply deficit this year “exacerbated by an insecure supply chain. Almost 60% of the world’s cobalt lies in politically risky Democratic Republic of Congo.”

Bravura Ventures files 43-101 for Idaho gold project

February 15th, 2017

by Greg Klein | February 15, 2017

A fresh 43-101 technical report sets the stage for further advancement at Bravura Ventures’ (CSE:BVQ) Musgrove Creek gold property in Idaho. The report’s author recommends a 2017 program that would include confirmation drilling to update an historic resource.

Bravura Ventures files 43-101 for Idaho gold project

Bravura closed a 100% option on the road-accessible property in October. The company describes it as one of many deposits along the Trans-Challis fault system including the Beartrack mine and other past-producers to the northeast, and the Grouse Creek mine and other past-producers to the southwest.

Originally calculated in 2004 but considered historic and non-43-101 by Bravura, an estimate for the Musgrove Creek Johny’s Point deposit used a 0.8 g/t gold cutoff to show:

  • inferred: 8 million tonnes averaging 1.22 g/t for 313,822 ounces gold

Bravura’s report recommends a two-phase 2017 program including digital data compilation, verification of chip sampling, permitting for road and drill site construction and confirmation drilling for a 43-101 Johny’s Point resource. The suggested budget comes to US$500,000.

In October the company also took on a 90% option on the Grew Creek gold project from Golden Predator Mining TSXV:GPY. Located in southeastern Yukon’s Tintina gold belt, the project has already undergone 290 holes totalling over 57,000 metres, with near-surface intervals up to 5.96 g/t gold and 24.1 g/t silver over 68 metres.

Plucking the high grades

Rockcliff Copper plans a busy year for its expanded Flin Flon-Snow Lake turf

by Greg Klein

Rockcliff Copper has a busy year planned for its expanded Flin Flon-Snow Lake turf

This year’s drilling will keep core shacks busy on at least three Rockcliff properties.

 

Grade is king to Ken Lapierre, so he proudly describes his company’s portfolio as “the best of three worlds—high-grade copper, high-grade zinc and high-grade gold”—the highest-grade unmined deposits in Manitoba’s Flin Flon-Snow Lake region, he adds. But the Rockcliff Copper TSXV:RCU geologist/president/CEO also emphasizes the properties’ location. “They’re beside excellent infrastructure, in a world-class mining camp, a mining-friendly jurisdiction and a politically stable country. You really can’t get any better than that.”

Rockcliff Copper has a busy year planned for its expanded Flin Flon-Snow Lake turf

Ken Lapierre considers Rockcliff’s portfolio to
hold the camp’s highest-grade unmined deposits.

Active in the region for about a decade, the company began by going after non-core assets of Hudbay Minerals TSX:HBM. The pace of property acquisitions picked up late last year, leaving Rockcliff with about 45,000 hectares.

Included are two copper-polymetallic deposits with resource estimates, four zinc deposits with historic, non-43-101 estimates and a gold project on the site of a former high-grade mine. The properties sit within trucking distance of two Hudbay plants, one for gold, the other for base metals.

Four projects have work planned this year.

Now underway at Talbot is a program recently increased from 6,000 to 7,500 metres on a project that’s undergone over 13,000 metres in the last 18 months. Lapierre describes it as a “high-grade VMS copper deposit with a high-grade gold tenor.” A January 2016 resource for three zones showed an inferred total of:

  • 2.17 million tonnes averaging 2.8% copper, 2.4 g/t gold, 2.2% zinc and 54.6 g/t silver for 133.6 million pounds copper, 165,400 ounces gold, 107.4 million pounds zinc and 3.81 million ounces silver

The average copper-equivalent grade comes to 5.5%, Lapierre points out.

“Talbot has room to grow because it’s open in all directions and there’s a host of conductive plates that could represent more deposits,” he says.

Besides hoping for expansion along strike and at depth, Lapierre sees possibilities for new discoveries on the approximately 12,000-hectare property.

“The attractive thing about this deposit is that it looks and feels like all the other large deposits that became large mines in this camp. You have a series of geophysical anomalies close together with base metals present. As well as three zones of mineralization that create the deposit, it has additional geophysical conductive plates along strike and at depth that have never been tested. So we wouldn’t have to go far to make a new discovery.”

The current campaign’s expected to last until March. That would bring Rockcliff past the halfway point of its 51% option with Hudbay. Lapierre sees Talbot’s resource update possible by year-end.

Although Snow Lake is known as a VMS camp, “in reality it started as a gold camp,” Lapierre points out. That brings to mind another object of his enthusiasm, the former Laguna gold mine acquired last September. “If this property was in Timmins it would have had tens of millions of dollars spent on it.”

One vein mined in the 1930s averaged 20.5 grams per tonne, producing 60,000 ounces. “The attractive thing about Laguna’s gold veins and stockwork systems is they’re a lot wider than we originally thought,” he continues. “The oldtimers followed narrow, high-grade veins running over an ounce to the ton…. The reality is these high-grade veins are associated with quartz stockwork systems. We sampled an old trench where five metres averaged about 7.5 grams per tonne. Back then that would have been waste, but today it’s not. There’s a series of these vein systems and they’re associated with a long structural fault system.”

Grab sampling late last year suggested a trend covering over six kilometres on the 3,499-hectare property.

There’s multiple veins but the last time it was drilled was in 1944 and the last time it had any decent science was never.—Ken Lapierre, president/CEO of Rockcliff Copper

“There’s multiple veins but the last time it was drilled was in 1944 and the last time it had any decent science was never.”

That changes this winter, as a helicopter-style drone flies a high-res magnetic survey over the property. The plan is to “outline and identify potential structural traps where gold likes to hang its hat,” Lapierre explains. “Then we’re going to follow with a surface induced polarization survey which will give us hotspots. The gold that’s on this property is associated with sulphides, so the IP survey will find where there’s an accumulation of sulphides.”

Back to VMS deposits, another 2017 drill priority is the Bur zinc project, optioned from Hudbay in September under a four-year, 100% earn-in. The 3,979-hectare property came with a 2007 resource that Rockcliff considers historic and non-43-101:

  • indicated: 1.05 million tonnes averaging 8.6% zinc, 1.9% copper, 12.1 g/t silver and 0.05 g/t gold

  • inferred: 302,000 tonnes averaging 9% zinc, 1.4% copper, 9.6 g/t silver and 0.08 g/t gold

The deposit remains open in all directions. “If our first phase drill program is successful, we’ll put that into a 43-101 resource which would be done by the end of 2017 as well.”

The near-surface Rail deposit
remains open in all directions.

This year also calls for four to six holes totalling about 2,500 metres at the Rail deposit. In 2010 Rockcliff compiled a resource with an indicated category showing:

  • 822,000 tonnes averaging 3.04% copper, 0.9% zinc, 0.66 g/t gold and 9.25 g/t silver for 55.09 million pounds copper

“Rail has huge room for growth,” Lapierre says. “The deposit is still open along strike and at depth, it has a large untested geophysical plate below the deposit and for the most part it’s only been drilled down to about 250 metres.”

Among other projects with historic deposits is the 1,662-hectare near-surface MacBride zinc deposit. The December purchase came with a 1977 non-43-101 estimate of:

  • 1.82 million tonnes averaging 8.8% zinc, 0.3% copper, 0.1 g/t gold and 4.5 g/t silver

A 1.5% NSR in the Tower T-1 copper deposit might bring in over $1 million a year, Lapierre says. Rockcliff optioned its 70% stake to Akuna Minerals, which has a feasibility study scheduled for December. Lapierre hopes to see Akuna begin production by 2018.

As for more acquisitions, “we feel we’ve plucked the best there is to pluck in this camp,” he says. “But you always look because the minute you stop looking you eliminate opportunities to find a mine.”

Meanwhile the 2017 agenda calls for exploration on four properties, with drills turning on at least three.

King’s Bay Gold acquires three Quebec cobalt projects

February 6th, 2017

by Greg Klein | February 6, 2017

A metal facing rising prices and supply-side risk, cobalt has drawn King’s Bay Gold TSXV:KBG to three new properties in Quebec. Previous work has shown cobalt on each acquisition.

King’s Bay Gold acquires three Quebec cobalt projects

Northeast of the Hudson Bay coast, the 875-hectare Ninuk Lake project underwent surface sampling, mapping and electromagnetics by Falconbridge in 2001. Samples from massive sulphides in outcrop found historic, non-43-101 results up to 2.6% nickel, 1.8% copper and 0.27% cobalt. Falconbridge neglected to follow up due to other discoveries that year, King’s Bay stated.

A northwestern Quebec property, the 418-hectare Broadback River project revealed several large conductors through airborne surveys in 1985. Sampling by Falconbridge from 1999 to 2000 showed historic, non-43-101 results up to 0.7% nickel, 0.3% copper and 0.09% cobalt. Drilling tested the property’s northwestern area but not the southeastern conductors.

South of Quebec City, the 179-hectare Roberge project has undergone soil sampling with historic, non-43-101 results up to 1.06% cobalt.

Now compiling data from the properties, King’s Bay plans a spring program of mapping and sampling to confirm the historic results.

Last month the company closed its acquisition of the 24,000-hectare Lynx Lake copper-cobalt project in south-central Labrador, which has airborne EM planned. Grab samples from the property’s east side brought non-43-101 results up to 1.39% copper, 0.94% cobalt, 0.21% nickel and 6.5 g/t silver. Grab samples on the west side showed non-43-101 results up to 1.03% copper, 0.566% cobalt, 0.1% nickel, 5 g/t silver, 0.36% chromium, 0.39% molybdenum and 0.23% vanadium.

King’s Bay closed a $938,752 private placement in January.

Mountain Boy Minerals reports barite-polymetallic results from NW B.C.

February 2nd, 2017

by Greg Klein | February 2, 2017

An explorer with extensive assets in northwestern British Columbia’s Golden Triangle, Mountain Boy Minerals TSXV:MTB announced a “major base metal-silver-barite zone” at the Surprise Creek property. The company acts as project operator on the 50/50 JV with Great Bear Resources TSXV:GBR.

Of two holes sunk late last year, one missed a polymetallic VMS-related occurrence called the Ataman zone. But DDH-SC-2 returned the following intercepts, announced February 2:

  • 0.12 g/t gold, 28 g/t silver, 1.21% zinc, 0.03% lead, 0.31% copper and 46.73% barite over 18.94 metres, starting at 58.26 metres in downhole depth

  • (including 0.11 g/t gold, 44.75 g/t silver, 4.31% zinc, 0.05% lead, 0.33% copper and 67% BaSo4 over 4.58 metres)

  • (which includes 0.09 g/t gold, 70.7 g/t silver, 6.49% zinc, 0.09% lead, 0.56% copper and 60.48% BaSo4 over 2.14 metres)

part of the same JV with Surprise Creek.

True widths weren’t available. The hole appeared to end in mineralization but drilling stopped due to weather.

Further work this year “will target this extensive barite horizon,” Mountain Boy stated. The Ataman zone has been traced across approximately 1.2 kilometres of strike. The 7,472-hectare Surprise Creek property sits immediately north of a highway.

Barite is used as a drilling mud in the oil and gas industry. Imports to Canada and the U.S. come to about 400,000 tonnes of industrial-grade barite and 3.6 million tonnes of oilfield barite, the company stated.

The JV also covers the nearby BA VMS project. Some highlights from samples reported last month from a three-by-two-kilometre area of the Big Red target showed:

  • 14.3% lead and 1,080 g/t silver
  • 32.4% lead and 417 g/t silver
  • 20.3% zinc, 6.73% lead, 255 g/t silver and 100 ppb gold
  • 33.1% zinc, 1.57% lead and 192 g/t silver
  • 4.41% copper and 142 ppb gold

Big Red has additional exploration planned this year, but the BA property’s eponymous BA zone remains the project’s primary focus. In December Mountain Boy released channel sample results from the zone, with some highlights showing:

  • 3.84% zinc, 1.25% lead and 107.65 g/t silver over 15 metres
  • (including 5.31% zinc, 1.97% lead and 132.44 g/t silver over 7.5 metres)

  • 2.42% zinc, 0.55% lead and 99.41 g/t silver over 12 metres
  • (including 3.2% zinc, 0.72% lead and 119.68 g/t silver over 6 metres)
  • (which includes 5.12% zinc, 0.83% lead and 102.85 g/t silver over 3 metres)

Another Mountain Boy asset in B.C.’s Golden Triangle is the MB project. Grab samples taken last year from the property’s High Grade zone assayed as high as 31,192 g/t silver, with averages of 4,795.16 g/t silver, 3.35% zinc, 0.837% lead and 1.38% copper.

Sampling from MB’s Mann zone averaged 750.48 g/t silver, 9.02% zinc, 2.61% lead and 0.303% copper.

MB has an historic, non-43-101 indicated estimate for three veins totalling 105,555 tonnes averaging 0.064% copper, 0.69% lead, 2.01% zinc, 208.9 g/t silver and 13.59% barite.

The company’s portfolio includes a 20% interest in the Silver Coin project, in which Jayden Resources TSXV:JDN holds the remainder. A 2011 resource gave the project a measured and indicated total of 842,416 ounces gold, 4.46 million ounces silver and 91.17 million pounds zinc. The inferred category came to 813,273 ounces gold, 6.69 million ounces silver and 128 million pounds zinc. Further drilling is planned this year.

Mountain Boy also holds a 35% interest in Decade Resources’ (TSXV:DEC) Red Cliff project, which has modelling and additional drilling slated for 2017.

Just west of the BA project, Mountain Boy’s 50%-held George property has historic, non-43-101 estimates for copper, silver and gold.

In December Mountain Boy announced the purchase of the 1,062-hectare Manuel Creek zeolite and pozzolan property in southern B.C.’s Okanagan region, where work on a resource estimate should start in early spring. The company noted that zeolite is used in applications such as soil amendments and hydroponics, water filtration, livestock feed enhancement and waste management.

The company offered a private placement of up to $1.2 million in December.

Rockcliff Copper reports 5.9% copper-equivalent over 5.6 metres, expands Manitoba drill program

January 18th, 2017

Rockcliff Copper reports 5.9% copper-equivalent over 5.6 metres, expands Manitoba drill program

Buoyed by new assays from Phase II drilling, Rockcliff Copper TSXV:RCU has increased its Talbot drill program from 6,000 metres to 7,500 metres. The company holds a 51% option on the polymetallic copper project, part of its 45,000-hectare Snow Lake holdings in Manitoba’s Flin Flon-Snow Lake mining region.

Talbot’s latest results, from hole TB-016, show:

  • 2.64% copper, 2.94 g/t gold, 1.67% zinc and 23 g/t silver for 5.9% copper-equivalent over 5.63 metres, starting at 849.38 metres in downhole depth
  • (including 4.61% copper, 5.08 g/t gold, 2.09% zinc and 39.12 g/t silver for 9.9% copper-equivalent over 2.8 metres)

  • 0.64% copper, 0.24 g/t gold, 1.04% zinc and 5.6 g/t silver for 1.4% copper-equivalent over 3.39 metres, starting at 865.77 metres

Earlier this month Rockcliff reported assays from hole TB-012:

  • 1.2% copper, 0.92 g/t gold, 0.24% zinc and 10.2 g/t silver for 2.1% copper-equivalent over 12.57 metres, starting at 840.62 metres
  • (including 2% copper, 1.94 g/t gold, 0.32% zinc and 20.03 g/t silver for 3.9% copper-equivalent over 5.3 metres)

True widths weren’t provided.

TB-012 confirmed “continuity of the main lens in an area void of drilling along the deposit’s north boundary of the main lens,” the company stated.

A January 2016 resource estimate for three zones at Talbot showed an inferred category totalling:

  • 2.17 million tonnes averaging 2.8% copper, 2.4 g/t gold, 2.2% zinc and 54.6 g/t silver for 133.6 million pounds copper, 165,400 ounces gold, 107.4 million pounds zinc and 3.81 million ounces silver

Rockcliff describes Talbot as “similar to that of present and past-producing base metal deposits of bi-modal volcanoclastic rocks in the Flin Flon-Snow Lake greenstone belt.”

With mineralization open in all directions, the program will “focus on resource expansion of the deposit as well as drill-testing geophysical plates/anomalies recently discovered from the resurveying of historic drill holes,” said president/CEO Ken Lapierre. The property has year-round road access.

Last week Rockcliff released grab samples grading up to 25 g/t and 34.77 g/t gold from the Snow Lake project’s Laguna site, which has state-of-the-art airborne magnetics planned. The company’s other Snow Lake assets include a 100% interest in the Rail deposit, with an indicated resource of 822,000 tonnes averaging 3.9% copper-equivalent, and non-43-101, historic estimates for four other deposits.

Rockcliff has about $2.5 million in the bank and no debt.

Updated: Financing, permitting, 12-fold expansion bring King’s Bay closer to Labrador copper-cobalt exploration

January 17th, 2017

by Greg Klein | January 15, 2017

Update: On January 17, King’s Bay announced the expansion of its Lynx Lake property from about 2,000 hectares to approximately 24,000 hectares “to adequately cover the geological structures and geophysical signatures of interest.”

 

With a provincial permit in hand and a $938,752 private placement that closed earlier this month, King’s Bay Gold TSXV:KBG readies for airborne EM over its Lynx Lake copper-cobalt project in south-central Labrador. The survey will precede a proposed first-ever drill program for the property.

Financing, permitting bring King’s Bay closer to Labrador copper-cobalt exploration

Previous work began after construction of the Trans-Labrador Highway in 2008, which unlocked some of the region’s geology. Grab samples from a quarry on the property’s east side showed non-43-101 results up to 1.39% copper, 0.94% cobalt, 0.21% nickel and 6.5 g/t silver. Other non-43-101 grab sample results from a west-side quarry ranged up to 1.03% copper, 0.566% cobalt, 0.1% nickel, 5 g/t silver, 0.36% chromium, 0.39% molybdenum and 0.23% vanadium.

Preliminary evidence of strong conductors in the area came from the province’s regional low-res magnetic surveys and a hand-held EM-16 device.

With highway and powerlines running adjacent to the property, Lynx Lake can be reached by a 1.5-hour drive from the town of Happy Valley-Goose Bay.

Cobalt, one of the energy metals essential to battery manufacture, presents especially troubling supply concerns due to the instability and human rights infractions of the metal’s largest producer, the Democratic Republic of Congo. See an infographic about cobalt’s precarious supply chain.

Rockcliff Copper releases gold samples, plans state-of-the-art airborne at former Manitoba mine

January 16th, 2017

by Greg Klein | January 16, 2017

Calling it the “first systematic, scientific exploration program on the property in over 70 years,” Rockcliff Copper TSXV:RCU has a high-resolution airborne survey planned for its Laguna gold property in central Manitoba’s Flin Flon-Snow Lake camp. Twenty-five recent grab samples from four vein systems on the former mine site brought grades ranging from 0.01 grams per tonne gold up to 25 g/t and 34.77 g/t. The results indicate a trend covering over six kilometres within the 3,499-hectare property, the company stated.

Rockcliff Copper releases grab samples, plans state-of-the-art airborne for former Manitoba gold mine

A magnetic survey conducted by a state-of-the-art helicopter-style drone will allow the program to “economically fly extremely tight line spacings with high-density ground sampling distances without the need for linecutting,” Rockcliff added.

“It is now possible to resolve individual magnetic anomalies that were previously indistinguishable when surveyed using conventional ground and airborne surveys—perfect for structurally controlled gold exploration targets like that at the Laguna property.”

Located 20 kilometres from a Hudbay Minerals TSX:HBM gold mill now on care and maintenance, the Laguna project comprises part of Rockcliff’s 45,000-hectare Snow Lake portfolio. Included are 43-101 estimates for the Talbot and Rail copper-gold-zinc-silver resources, as well as historic, non-43-101 zinc deposits.
