Description

LIGHTNING CREEK Placer Gold Property $15,000

-The largest nugget in the Cariboo, 30 ounces,  was mined on Lightning Creek.

-the 2nd highest producing creek in the entire Cariboo gold fields to date.

-4 kilometres of creek frontage per side.

-Current operations on Lightning Creek include the Wingdam mine.

-the property covers lapsed legacy claims originally held by Bud Henning.

-Excellent infrastructure: road accessible, ample water, underlain by crown land. Suited for any size operation.

The property is comprised of BC placer tenure 1049213. 97.15 hectares / 240.06 acres. The property is located approximately 47 km ENE of Quesnel or 16 km WSW of Wells, central British Columbia. The Property is situated within the Cariboo Mining District that makes up part of the Quesnel Highlands. The claims centre is at latitude 53.062440° longitude -121.819960°.

In 2013, Henning Gold Mines Inc., (Kocsis et al., 2013) conducted a reverse circulation drilling program on their properties which included the ground held by this tenure. The program “yielded valuable information regarding the sedimentary stratum and the gold content of individual layers.” The coarse-grained Sangamon cobble-rich gravel layers intercepted at depths between 58 and 85.3 m contains auriferous zones with gold grades reaching up to 0.541 g/m³.

In 2012, Artic Geophysics Inc. (Moll, et al., 2014) conducted a 2D resistivity survey on the Property for Henning Gold Mines Inc. The survey consisted of five lines totaling 3,255 m. The purpose of the Arctic survey was to investigate and confirm results obtained by the 2012 SkyTEM survey (see below). The subject property covers targets P16 and P17 as illustrated in ARIS .

In 2012, SkyTEM (EADE, et al., 2012)) conducted a combined airborne time domain electromagnetic and magnetic survey on the Property on behalf of Mary Creek Gold Mines Inc.; a wholly-owned subsidiary of Henning Gold Mines Inc..

In 2008, a pine-bark geochemistry survey was conducted on the western part of the Beaver Pass Crossing claim (Muloin, 2008).

In 1985, Redfern Resources Ltd. conducted a magnetic survey with the aim to identify buried stream channels (Pezzot, et al., 1985).

In 1947, Lightning Creek Gold Alluvials Ltd. conducted a geophysical survey across the Lightning Creek valley floor near the confluence with Beaver Pass Creek (3.5 km downstream from the 2013 RC Drill Program) using resistivity methods (assessment geotec Rohstoffe GmbH Lightning Creek Property Assessment Report report no. 00007). The survey revealed a bedrock-depth of about 200 ft (61 m) below creek level and the presence of a buried bench-type deposit (Brown et al., 1947).

Levson and Giles (1993) subdivide buried placer deposits into paleochannels and paleoalluvial fan/fan-delta deposits. Most common are the paleochannels that have been further subdivided into four types listed below:

-Buried trunk valleys: They occur in broad bedrock valleys on the order of hundreds of meters deep and wide. They are typically located at higher elevations than modern low-gradient streams.

-Buried channels in modern valleys: They occur directly beneath or adjacent to modern streams with a similar gradient. They are commonly deeply buried by alluvium and glacial sediments.

-Buried high-level valley: These deposits occur 20 m to 100 m above modern streams as paleochannel remnants with an intermediate gradient. It is suggested that they were formed by adjacent modern streams and are tens of meters wide and deep.

-Buried gulch: These are small and narrow valleys with a steep gradient in areas of high relief.

The setting that best describes the deposit type drilled on the Property is classified by Levson et al (1993) as “buried channels in modern valleys”. The most productive placer deposits along Lightning Creek (Kocsis, 2012) and throughout the Cariboo are those that stratigraphically underlie glacial till and other non-auriferous glacigenic sediments of one or more glaciations (Levson, et al., 1993). Quaternary placer targets depend on more factors than the Tertiary targets; e.g. the local glacial environment (Kellaway, et al., 2013).

The total in Gold yielded from the creek is about $15,000,000. (N.L. Barlee (1980), The Guide to Gold Panning, Revised Second Edition, Second Printing. Canada West Publications.)

The two major historical producers in the Wingdam area have been the Melvin and Sanderson mines. At the Melvin mine the gold-bearing gravels, about two metres thick and from 12 to 43 metres wide, lie on bedrock. The auriferous gravel occurs above bedrock under a boulder clay at the Sanderson mine. Production from the deep channel in the years 1937 and 1938 is reported to be 37,212 grams of gold from 2,872 cubic yards of mined ore (Property File - Gold Ridge Resources Prospectus, 1987).

In 2009, CVG Mining Ltd. acquired the property (Wingdam) and in 2012, using a ground freeze method successfully excavated a 2.44 x 2.44 metre cross cut drift for the entire width of the channel - 23.5 metres. This represented the first time a drift across the channel had been accomplished. From a 140 bank cubic metre bulk sample, using a simple mechanical process of gravity separation, gold recovery was 5194 grams (167.0 ounces) of raw placer gold (900 fineness). The refined-equivalent gold grade across the drift was 15 grams per tonne (33.4 grams per cubic metre or 0.438 ounce per tonne). The grade across a central portion of the paleochannel totalling 14.8 m (3.8 to 18.6 m) averaged 15.8 grams per tonne (49.45 grams per cubic metre or 0.652 ounce per tonne). Abundant elongated gold flakes up to 5 millimetres long were visible on bedrock across a 5.5-meter distance (6.5 to 12.0 m). Seven consecutive discrete samples (0.036 to 0.054 cubic metres) collected along this distance returned gold grades ranging from 32 to 83.6 grams per tonne (71.35 to 185.62 grams per cubic metre or 0.936 to 2.436 ounces per tonne) (N MINER May 3, 2012).
