North Rim Project 2345 hectares Zinc Lead Copper Silver
SLAM owns 2 large mineral claims located 5 km from of Trevali’s Caribou Mine as shown on the map to the left. Several zinc-lead-copper-silver occurrences located on the North Rim claims are associated with strata similar to Caribou.
As on all its properties, SLAM intends to compile detailed drilling results and other data to evaluate this large project.
Connector Project 2572 hectares Zinc Lead Copper Silver
ON September 19, 2017, SLAM reported results from sample 535406, a 2 kg boulder found at Connector. It graded 10.9% zinc, 6.25% lead, 0.03% copper and 88 g/t silver The values may be significant because of its location along strike from the former producing Brunswick No. 6 mine.
Connector is located between the former producing Brunswick No. 6 and No. 12 mines owned by Glencore. No 6, was the first major discovery in the Bathurst Mining Camp in 1952. The massive No 12 deposit was discovered in 1953 and operated continuously from 1964 to 2013. It produced 150 million tonnes of ore grading 8.46% zinc, 3.33% lead, 0.37% copper, and 99 g/t silver. Provincial geological records show that the same volcano-sedimentary strata that control these deposits extend beneath the Connector property.
Lower 44 Project 1350 hectares Zinc Lead Copper Silver
The Company also reported results fro trenching at Lower 44. The program accurately located the Tribag zone which was discovered and drilled in 1962. Five grab samples 535401 to 435405 were collected from excavated bedrock material in the trenches. The zinc, lead, copper and silver values are significant because no assay results were published with the 1962 drilling report on the Tribag discovery.
All 5 Lower 44 samples derive from a mineralized chert that is consistent with historic records and similar to the West Wedge zone located 700 m to the north. Lower 44 is underlain by the former Wedge copper mine, the West Wedge zone, the Essex zone and the Tribag zone. The location is 20 km south of the Caribou mine owned and operated by Trevali Mining Corp. The West Wedge zone was not accessible for trenching but drill collar locations for some previous drill holes were located. SLAM may utilize these collar locations to plan future drilling on this occurrence. The best drilling intercept to date is a 3.8 m core length grading 12.9% zinc, 5.35% lead, 0.78% copper, 70.6 g/tonne silver and 1.37 g/t gold reported from the West Wedge zone in 1983.
