Vancouver, British Columbia, May 13, 2019 – Scottie Resources Corp. (“Scottie” or the “Company”) (TSXV: SCOT) is pleased to provide the following update on its recently acquired Bitter Creek property (see news release dated March 6, 2019). The Bitter Creek property strategically complements the Company’s 100% owned Ruby Silver and Black Hills properties, which also host polymetallic mineralization.
Bitter Creek Property Highlights:
- Contains approximately 30 historic mineral showings/prospects
- Two historic small past producers (one on claim boundary)
- Property boundaries come within 2 km of the town of Stewart, BC
- Covers 4,832 hectares
All described showings are categorized as polymetallic veins with Ag-Pb-Zn+/-Au mineralization. Past production totalled 65 tons - Black Hills (53 tons) and Mobile (12 tons), with respective average grades of 1.17 - 2.7 g/t Gold; 5,658 – 8,247 g/t Silver; 16.1 - 8.0 % Lead; 2.92 - 9.6 % Zinc; 0.41% - 0.3 % Copper.
Scottie’s VP Exploration, Dr. Thomas Mumford commented: “The sheer number of similar style showings present on the Bitter Creek claims encourage us to the potential of the mineralizing event. By filling in a number of key claims and connecting the Black Hills and Ruby Silver properties, the Bitter Creek land package allows us to assess the pervasive mineralization in the area at a much larger scale. This could help us to model, target, and test the potential of a larger feeder system.“
Work during the 2019 field season will involve following up on the mineralization style and structural controls on the various showings and past producers, with the aim of evaluating mineral deposit models that could correlate the mineralization between the three contiguous properties. Additionally, there has been significant glacial retreat on the property in recent years, and there will be a strong focus on assessing the newly exposed rocks.
The Bitter Creek property is subject to a 2.5% net smelter return, (“NSR”) of which the Company can purchase up to 60% for $1,500,000.
Scottie Resources is announcing its intention to complete an equity financing by way of a non-brokered private placement of up to C$1.0M at a price of C$0.23 per share, for a total of up to 4.35M shares. All of the securities issued in connection with this private placement are subject to resale restrictions which expire four months and one day from closing.
Proceeds of the private placement will be used for general working capital purposes and the exploration of properties in the Golden Triangle region of British Columbia, Canada.
Thomas Mumford, Ph.D., P.Geo and VP Exploration of Scottie, a qualified person under National Instrument 43-101, has reviewed the technical information contained in this news release on behalf of the Company.
