GoldHaven's Smoke Mountain Polymetallic Project Advances to Drill Testing: Gold, Silver, Copper, Molybdenum

29.11.2023 | 14:00 Uhr | Newsfile

Vancouver, November 29, 2023 - GoldHaven Resources Corp. (CSE: GOH) (OTCQB: GHVNF) (FSE: 4QS0) ("GoldHaven" or the "Company") announces that it has advanced the Polymetallic Smoke Mountain Project to the drill testing phase based on new results. The updated targeting work has leveraged new surface geochemistry and airborne geophysics. The Smoke Mountain Polymetallic project is located in the Central British Columbia porphyry-epithermal belt, south of Houston (Figures 2 and 3).

GoldHaven CEO, Bonn Smith stated, "New geochemistry and geophysics, coupled with the original 7.42 g/t gold sample on the property, has substantially increased our confidence in the gold and copper prospectivity of Smoke Mountain, where we have outlined a 3.5 by 2.5 km area with coincident ZTEM and soil anomalies just 26 km northwest of the Huckleberry Mine. This will be an exciting year for the company as we advance a spectrum of new porphyry, polymetallic, and structurally-controlled gold targets to the drill testing stage."

Geochemical & Soil Sample Results: Gold, Silver, Copper, & Molybdenum

Smoke Mountain Drill Targets

Ongoing exploration targeting at Smoke Mountain incorporates historical mineral exploration data, government geological data, exploration data generated by GoldHaven in 2021 and 2022 (soil, stream sediment and rock samples), as well as airborne magnetic and electromagnetic data collected by GoldHaven in 2022.

Smoke Mountain Surface Geochemistry

In 2022, 58 stream sediment samples, 931 soil samples and 50 rock samples were collected during a focused surface exploration campaign designed to advance the Smoke Mountain project which is prospective for copper-gold-molybdenum porphyry mineralization and gold-silver epithermal mineralization.

The 2022 sampling has established a 6.0 by 3.1 kilometre area of copper, molybdenum and silver anomalism on the Smoke Mountain property (Figures 1, 2 and 4; Table 1). Gold, copper, silver, and molybdenum ranges for stream sediment, soil and rock samples are provided in Table 1 and results are shown in Figures 1, 2 and 4.

Internal to this area of interest, soil geochemical results highlight a series of copper anomalies (greater than 31.75 ppm Copper) with subordinate molybdenum, gold and silver anomalies (see Figures 2 and 4 and Table 1).

These may be associated with porphyry copper style or precious metal bearing epithermal mineralization (Figures 1, 2, and 4; Table 1). The copper anomalies (and clusters of anomalies) of interest are large and constitute attractive exploration drilling targets. Furthermore, these anomalies are coincident with or along the flanks of large magnetic and conductivity features (Figures 1 and 2).

High-priority follow-up

GoldHaven is currently building out a work program for 2024 that will focus on 1) drill target delineation, 2) expansion of grids and mapping areas to extend known anomalous areas as well as to identify additional target areas and 3) drill permitting. The priority objective for the company is to drill test some of the defined target areas in Q3-Q4 of 2024. The work plan will include:

  1. Drill permitting - 2,500 meters over approximately 8 holes
  2. Detailed geophysical inversion work on the new survey data
  3. Evaluation of LiDAR data and updated data interpretation and context to geochemical anomalies
  4. Induced polarization (IP) ground geophysics to add confidence to the new target areas
  5. Expanded mapping and stream sediment/soil sampling programs
  6. Plan a 2500m first-pass drill program to test new high-priority targets

Note that the mines, deposits, and prospects in this part of BC provide geologic context for the Smoke Mountain property, but these are not necessarily an indication that the Property hosts similar grades or tonnages of mineralization.

Highly Prospective Region

GoldHaven's 8,461 hectare Smoke Mountain property is strategically situated within an extensive 85 kilometre polymetallic belt that is highly prospective for gold-silver-zinc epithermal systems, porphyry copper-gold deposits, as well as replacement-style and breccia-hosted gold and silver-rich magmatic-hydrothermal mineralization. The property is road accessible from Houston via a gravel forest service access routes off Highway 16.

Exploration activity has been renewed in this historic mining region, propelled by the ongoing expansion of advanced exploration projects and mines including:

  • Universal Copper's Poplar project (18km NE of Smoke Mountain) hosting 152.3 Mt at 0.32% Cu Indicated and 139 Mt at 0.29% Cu Inferred1
  • Surge Copper's Berg project (15km SW of Smoke Mountain) with reserves of 610 Mt at 0.27% Cu Measured and Indicated and 28.1 Mt at 0.22% Cu Inferred2
  • Imperial Metals' Huckleberry project (26 km SE of Smoke Mountain) containing an Indicated 180.7 Mt at 0.315% Cu and 48.0Mt at 0.263% Cu Inferred3

Note: the mines and advanced exploration and development projects in the Central BC porphyry-epithermal belt provide geologic context for the Smoke Mountain Property. However, this is not necessarily indicative that the Smoke Mountain Project will host similar grades or tonnages of mineralization.

The historic Central BC porphyry-epithermal belt is re-emerging as an important copper-gold-silver jurisdiction as evidenced by increased staking activity and exploration drilling. The region is quickly becoming known for its long mineralized drill intercepts including Universal Copper's 216m interval grading 0.54% CuEq (click here for release) and has the potential to host some of the largest copper-polymetallic discoveries in British Columbia.

In recent news, Surge Copper discovered a new high-grade silver-rich zone in 2022 drilling (click here for news release) increasing the number of target areas and exploration upside.

These results in the immediate vicinity of GoldHaven's Smoke Mountain project showcase the exceptional regional endowment and metallogenic character of the Late Cretaceous arc rocks hosted within this belt. GoldHaven's exploration potential lies in the untested and under-explored alteration and mineralization trends, as well as newly identified geophysical targets.

Analytical Methods

The rock, stream sediment and soil samples were sent to Actlabs, 9989 Dallas Drive Kamloops, BC, Canada. Soil and stream sediment samples were dried at 60° C, sieve to -177 um (-80 mesh; Preparation S1: dry) and analyzed according to Method UT-1-15g (Ultratrace 1-15 g), aqua regia - ICP-MS, 63 elements, 15 g subsample. Soil samples that failed to yield a 15 g subsample of -177 um material were analyzed using a 0.5 g analysis and sample size aliquots were reported. Rock samples were crushed and pulverized (mild steel) to 95% passing 105 um with sand cleaning after each sample (Preparation RX1: crush, pulverize). Analytical methods include Method UT-1 (Ultratrace 1): aqua regia - ICP-MS, 0.5 g subsample and Method 1A2B-30: Au by FA-AA, 30 g subsample. In addition to the routine field samples, 86 quality assurance samples (field duplicates, certified reference materials, and quartz blanks) were inserted before sample shipment).
