Waterpump Creek

Waterpump Creek Project

The Waterpump Creek (Pb-Zn-Ag) deposit is located due north of the Illinois Creek airstrip. Waterpump Creek is a carbonate replacement deposit hosted by the Illinois Creek dolomite sequence, similar stratigraphy as at the main Illinois reek oxide gold deposit. A total of 58 diamond drill holes by Anaconda Minerals Company, and later by Nova gold Resources, discovered high grade lead-zinc-silver mineralization. A preliminary hand drawn polygonal resource by Anaconda estimated a non-43-101 resource of 166,000 tons at 9.5 opt silver, 16.1% lead, and 5.5% zinc. No modern resource has been estimated

Opportunity & Plans

Waterpump Creek contains numerous geophysical targets and is open along strike and at depth. The deposit has excellent potential for additional discovery of Pb-Zn-Ag carbonate replacement mineralization. Significant drill intercepts are shown in the cross section pictured
