Evrim seeks Golden Triangle partner

Evrim Resources Corp. Jan. 25 said its exploration and targeting work has identified a number of untested drill targets at its Ball Creek copper-gold project in northwestern British Columbia.
The 520-square-kilometer (200 square miles) Ball Creek property hosts significant economic high-grade epithermal gold-silver, precious metal-enriched volcanogenic, and porphyry copper-gold systems.
Exploration of the property's Main zone has been explored with geological mapping, geochemical surveys, airborne and ground geophysical surveys and roughly 11,000 meters of drilling.
Drilling at Main zone by previous operators cut 231 meters grading 0.21 percent copper and 0.54 grams per metric ton gold, including 45.72 meters grading 0.31 percent copper and 0.69 g/t gold.
Evrim said its own exploration has better defined the controls on mineralization.
"The controls on mineralization share many key characteristics with other significant porphyry copper-gold deposits in the region and what we have learned in the Main Zone can direct exploration of other mineralized zones on the property," said Stewart Harris, vice president, technical services.
These targets include strike extensions of the Main zone; a cluster of mineralized centers that lie within a 5,000-meter by 2,000-meter area that encompasses the Main zone; and a number of early staged targets across the property.
Evrim said it is seeking a partner to collaborate on advancing the copper-gold targets identified at the prospective property with British Columbia's Golden Triangle.
"The new targets at Ball Creek are drill-ready and represent an excellent opportunity for the company to add to the mineral endowment of this productive region," said Harris.
