W, Cu, Bi, Pb, Zn, Mo
Across its 51 square-kilometer area, the Deer Horn Property hosts a number of other mineralized targets and zones containing tungsten, copper, bismuth, lead, zinc and molybdenum. The most abundant metals identified to date are tungsten and copper.
The Deer Horn Property’s main tungsten showing is separate, lying 800 to 1,000 feet west of the main Te-Ag-Au vein system. The tungsten zone was noted in the PEA as follows:
“Prospecting, trenching and limited diamond drilling also confirmed the presence of important concentrations of scheelite (tungsten) mineralization on the property. The elevated levels of tungsten occur in the vicinity of the historic Harrison Scheelite mineral occurrence and locally in drill core over an east-west distance of at least 550m. The
mineralization appears to be particularly concentrated in altered sedimentary rocks in the footwall of the regional thrust (and Contact Zone). Additional exploration of the tungsten is recommended.”
Copper and Copper Porphyry
Prospecting at Deer Horn in 2012 identified new showings indicative of a buried copper porphyry system. Samples collected from this zone produced results as high as 4240 ppm Cu and 6.6 g/t Ag. This new copper porphyry potential adds
further exploration value to the property.
Copper porphyries are in great demand worldwide due to their size and economics. Here's an overview of porphyry deposits.
Bismuth, Lead, Zinc and Molybdenum
Past exploration at Deer Horn has encountered significant amounts of bismuth, lead, zinc and molybdenum, associated with other mineralized zones or in separate areas of the property. These occurrences warrant further exploration.
