SANTA MARIA / WAR EAGLE
SILVER / COPPER / GOLD PROPERTY

The Santa Maria property is located in central BC, 37 km south-southwest of Smithers. The property hosts base and precious metal mineralization in Eskay-type and aged rocks; however recent lithogeochemistry has determined that rocks do not have the Eskay-style signature. The Santa Maria has been explored by geological mapping, soil sampling, EM, SP, and IP surveys, trenching and 2600 m of diamond drilling in 21 holes, as well as minor historic underground exploration. Mineralization consists of chalcopyrite, chalcocite, bornite, tetrahedrite, malachite, azurite and pyrite within a silicified zone of quartz veining and breccia.

Approximately 850,000 oz. Ag & 25 million lbs. of Cu

PROPERTY FILES



West-dipping Lower Jurassic Hazelton Group volcanics consisting mainly of lapilli tuff and volcanic breccia have been intruded by a Late Cretaceous to Eocene composite quartz porphyry/aplite/felsite sill or dike. The two main mineralized fracture structures occur at the east and west contact zones of this intrusion. These zones have been referred to as the Santa Maria or footwall vein and the S.H. or hanging wall vein. The vein system strikes 330 degrees and dips moderately to steeply southwest. The Santa Maria vein has a strike length of over 518 metres. The vein systems have a surface width of 76 to 91 metres. The mineralization consists of chalcopyrite, chalcocite, bornite, tetrahedrite, malachite, azurite and pyrite. Other veins or mineralized fracture zones are also present. On a local scale the mineralization occurs within quartz veins and variably silicified, composite fracture-breccia zones. Strong propylitic alteration and minor silicification occur adjacent to the fracture zones. Alteration products consist of epidote, calcite, sericite, zoisite and prehnite.

In 1967, Norcan Mines Limited outlined an inferred reserve of 750,000 tonnes grading 34.3 grams per tonne silver and 1.50 per cent copper to a depth of 75 metres on the Santa Maria zone.  The Santa Maria sill ranges from 50 - 250 feet thick.  The deposit tonnages could easily be TRIPLE or more than what has been inferred once the deposit has be fully delineated.

7.60 oz/ton Ag & 8.6% Cu
