CMC Contracts SRK Exploration Services Limited to Complete Data Compilation of the Amy CRD Prospect in Northern British Columbia
January 31, 2022. Vancouver, BC. – CMC Metals Ltd. (TSX-V: CMB) (Frankfurt:ZM5P) (CMCXF: OTC PINKS) (“CMC” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce that it has contracted SRK Exploration Services Limited (“SRK ES”) to undertake the digitisation and modernisation of a historical project dataset for the Amy Silver-Lead-Zinc CRD Project, located in the Rancheria Silver District of British Columbia, Canada.
SRK ES is an associate company of the international group holding company, SRK Consulting (Global) Limited (the “SRK Group”). SRK ES has a demonstrated track-record in undertaking independent assessments of mineral resources and ore reserves, project evaluations and audits, competent person’s reports and independent feasibility evaluations on behalf of exploration and mining companies and financial institutions worldwide. They specialize in exploration for all metal and industrial mineral commodities, elevating projects from the earliest stage of exploration through to resource drilling. The team assigned to this project have considerable experience in projects throughout western Canada and Yukon.
Mr. John Bossio, Chairman noted, “SRK ES are a superb addition to our technical expertise. They have project experience in other projects in the Rancheria Silver District. This work will establish a solid foundation for CMC to advance the Amy CRD Prospect to “drill ready” stage in 2022.”
The Amy Property located only 8.0 km west of Coeur Mining’s Silvertip Mine, hosts the developed Amy Prospect. This prospect shows many similar characteristics to the carbonate replacement deposit (“CRD”) at the Silvertip Mine. Amy was subjected to considerable advanced exploration during the 1960’s to mid 1980’s but has never been subjected to modern exploration. Historical exploration work included two levels of development on the Amy Prospect consisting of 202 feet of adit crosscut and 633 feet of drifting along or parallel to the vein structure. On the 4475 level, high grade silver-lead-zinc veins were exposed approximately 60 feet below the surface. The east drift encountered 140 feet of highly mineralized vein material immediately east of the crosscut. Historical data indicates that a parallel mineralized structure could exist to the south of the drift. The limited underground development demonstrated average grades along a 200-foot strike length in the 4475 adit were 20.74 oz/t silver, 5.17% lead and 7.46% zinc. In the northeast wall of the drift drilling identified a zone 35 feet in strike length with grades of 19.08 oz/t silver, 0.64% lead and 7.78% zinc, also over a width of 5.0 feet. The property has also been subjected to considerable geochemical and geophysical surveys, prospecting, geological mapping and diamond drilling (33 holes). This work will be the subject of the compilation effort by SRK ES.
The Amy Property occurs within the Rancheria Silver District, a 150km long by 50km wide belt straddling the Yukon and British Columbia border that hosts several silver-lead-zinc deposits including Silvertip, Logan and CMC’s Silver Hart. This district is comparable in terms of genesis and mineralization to the Coeur d’Alene Silver District in Idaho, USA, the 3rd most prolific silver district in the world.
