Description

Britton Creek Discovery $8000

BC placer tenures 1037120, 1041548 and 1049507. The property is located 32 km. west-northwest of the Town of Princeton, British Columbia. The property covers ~2 km. creek frontage, per side. The claim boundary is located 40 metres north of River Road North (Tulameen River Road), just past the creek mouth and bridge and covers approx. 2.5 km upstream. From Princeton, proceed west on River Road North directly to the site. The claim centre is at latitude  49.531110° longitude -120.913750°.

The Ridge Zone (Minfile 092HNE207), a mineralized platinum showing with values up to 1.445 grams per ton platinum, also occurs within the property boundary:

The Ridge Zone platinum-chromite showing outcrops along a northwest-trending ridge on the southern slopes of Grasshopper Mountain, 10.5 kilometres west-southwest of the town of Tulameen.

The ridge is underlain by dunite and peridotite of the Early Jurassic Tulameen Ultramafic Complex, a zoned Alaskan-type intrusive complex. The dunite contains relatively abundant chromite in a zone trending northwest for 300 metres and varying up to 100 metres in width. Chromite comprises up to 20 per cent of the dunite in this zone (Assessment Report 17170). The mineral forms irregular lenses up to 20 centimetres long and 10 centimetres wide, fracture fillings up to 2 centimetres wide and primary layers of magmatic origin up to 15 centimetres thick.

Elevated platinum values are found in the southern half of this zone of chromite mineralization, with assays of up to 1.445 grams per tonne platinum (Assessment Report 17170, page 10). Analyses of eight samples taken in the southern half averaged 0.418 gram per tonne platinum (Assessment Reports 15516, 17170). Seven samples from the northern half assayed up to 20 percent chromium, yet yielded less than 0.050 gram per tonne platinum (Assessment Report 15516, page 28, Map 2).

From Minfile 092HNE196: Coarse gold and platinum were recovered near the mouth of the creek (Geological Survey of Canada Memoir 26, page 135).

This is part of the original mine where gold was mined on discovery in 1885.

Warning - This property is offered for mining purposes only and ownership of the title to it does not include ownership of the surface rights or the right to use the surface for residential or recreational purposes.
