SURGE ACQUIRES ADDITIONAL GOLD-COPPER MINERAL CLAIM IN BRITISH COLUMBIA'S GOLDEN TRIANGLE
Surge Exploration Inc. has recently acquired 100-per-cent interest in an additional gold-copper mineral claim adjoining its Trapper Lake property in Northern British Columbia near the
Golden Bear mine,
a 480,000-ounce Au past producer,
currently owned by
Newmont Goldcorp Corp. It should be noted that results from nearby and/or adjacent properties are not necessarily indicative or reflective of mineralization that may be hosted on the company's property.
The mineral claim owned by Surge is nearby the Thorn project currently owned by
Brixton Metals Corp.
located in the Sutlahine River area of northwestern British Columbia (northern tip of the Golden Triangle). Surge's additional staking program complements its previously announced 213-square-kilometre mineral claim staking program Golden Triangle originally announced on
July 16, 2019, reiterating the company's commitment to region. This new claim has been acquired to provide additional exploration potential around the boundaries of the former Golden Bear mine.
Tim Fernback, Surge chief executive officer, states: "We are very excited to acquire this key additional mineral claim in B.C.'s prolific Golden Triangle near
's Golden Bear mine and nearby
Brixton Metal's Thorne project. With
Aug. 8, 2019,
that renowned gold mining investor,
Mr. Eric Sprott
, through 2176423 Ontario Ltd. (a corporation which is beneficially owned by him) acquired 22.25 million units for total consideration of $4,005,000 of its recently completed $7.7-million private placement, this area appears to be quite active for gold exploration. It is notable that following the completion of the August, 2019, private placement, Mr. Sprott's holdings including previously held shares will represent 18.25 per cent of the issued and outstanding common shares of Brixton Metals, on a non-diluted basis."
About the property
The company owns 100-per-cent interest in the Golden Triangle -- Trapper Lake group of 15 mineral claims which are located in the prolific Golden Triangle region of northwestern British Columbia approximately 90 kilometres east-northeast from Juneau, Alaska. Surge's staking program acquired an area of approximately 220 square km within the regionally important geological and structural trend. A large portion of the new property is adjacent to the Thorn project owned by
Brixton Metal's Corp., with the balance covering prospective open ground containing numerous B.C. Minfile showings with copper, silver and gold values adjoining the boundaries of
Newmont Goldcorp's Golden Bear mine, a 480,000 oz Au past producer.
In Brixton's news release dated July 15, 2019, it reported results from drill hole THN19-150, which was drilled to 829.06-metre depth at the Oban diatreme breccia pipe within the Camp Creek copper corridor. Brixton reported a drill hole intercept of 1.97 grams per tonne gold equivalent across 554.70 metres including 135.96 metres of 1.35 g/t Au, 0.31 per cent Cu, 133.62 g/t Ag or 5.00 g/t AuEq (gold equivalent) including six metres of 3.56 per cent Cu, 3.37 g/t Au and 257.77 g/t Ag.
