Stu Copper Project


HIGHLIGHTS:

  • Acquisition of brownfields project covering 115 square kilometres within the Yukon’s high-grade Minto Copper District completed in Q1 2019
  • Large historic database including drilling, trenching, geophysics and geochemical sampling
  • Project located between Pembridge Resources' Minto Cu-Au-Ag Mine to the north and Copper North’s Carmacks Cu-Au project to the south
  • Multiple drill-ready targets with two at step-out drilling stage from initial discovery and six large scale, early-stage targets
  • Close to infrastructure including grid power, all-season roads and international highways leading to existing deep-sea ports equipped for concentrate shipping and handling
  • Mining-friendly jurisdiction with a long history of exploration / mine development and ample, skilled labour

OVERVIEW:

Granite Creek holds a 100% interest in the 115 square kilometre Stu Copper-Gold Project located in the Minto Copper District of Canada’s Yukon Territory.  

The Stu property is located approximately 47 km directly northeast of Carmacks, Yukon and 210 km directly northwest of Whitehorse, the capital of the Yukon Territory. The property, which consists of 541 contiguous claims covering approximately 7638 hectares, is on-trend with Pembridge Resources’ high-grade Minto copper mine to the north and directly adjacent to Copper North’s Carmacks Project to the south.  Vehicle access to the Stu Project is along gravel and dirt road and trails from the village of Carmacks, which is a 1.75-hour drive along paved public highways from the capitol, Whitehorse.

The Stu claims were worked aggressively by United Keno Hill Mines (UKHM) in the 1970s and 80s. Some key data from these efforts has been preserved and indicates exceptional potential and strong evidence exists as to geologic continuity of the same mineralized system as hosts adjacent and proximate mining projects.

NEXT STEPS:

First 4-6 Months

  • Compile all historical data into 3D  digital data base and begin target development and refinement work
  • Evaluate condition of the old core to determine if any re-assay or re-logging is warranted
  • Initiate permitting process for 2019 to support exploration drilling and trenching program 

Subsequent 4-6 Months (2019 Field Exploration Season)

  • Establish exploration camp
  • Complete infill soils and geological mapping where required
  • Extend and rejuvenate existing trenches
