The Cambria Project is situated on the western edges of the fast-retreating Cambria and Todd Ice Fields. Scottie Resources Corp. has 100% ownership in the 15,000 ha property, which consists of seventy-one mineral claims. The Project is bordered to the north by Pretium Resources and to the east by Ascot Resources “Red Mountain” Project, which was recently purchased from IDM Mining for $45M.
The Project is underlain by late Triassic Stuhini Group sediments, and Early to Middle Jurassic volcanics and associated volcano-sedimentary units. These rocks host a variety of significant precious and base metals deposits elsewhere in the Stewart Camp including the Granduc, Silbak-Premier, Silver Coin, Sulphurets, Brucejack, Scottie-Gold, and Red Mountain deposits. Mineralization on the property generally consists of high-grade Ag-Zn-Pb ± Au-Cu polymetallic veins, and thought to be of similar genesis to the past-producing Porter-Idaho mine (2.2 Moz Ag from 1922-1950) located 2 km from the southern portion of the property boundary.
- Property boundary is within 2 km of the town of Stewart, BC
- Rapid glacial retreat has exposed new targets to investigate
- Forty-two Minfile mineral occurrences are located on the Cambria Project. Despite abundant mineralized showings, only two showings have been drilled within the entire Project claim block.
- Two small historic high-grade silver-lead-zinc-+/-gold past producers:
Blue Grouse: In 1968 and 1973, a total of 11 tonnes of sorted ore with an average grade of 4125 grams per tonne silver, 17.6 per cent lead and 19.9 per cent zinc were produced.
Black Hills: Sorted ore production totaled 53 tonnes (from 1930, 1935 and 1983), and graded an average of 1.17 g/t gold, 5658 g/t silver, 16.1% lead, 2.92% zinc and 0.41 % copper.
- Rock sampling in 2019 returned up to 24.1 g/t Au and 5380 g/t Ag. Silver-in-soil anomalies from 2019 soil grids produced targets that will be assessed in 2021.
- The northwestern portion of the property encompasses the Red Cliff – Montrose trend, a 2 kilometre long by 30-40 metre wide north-south mineralized zone. Gold-bearing veins within this shear zone have been intersected over a vertical distance of approximately 700 meters. Two past-producers are located along this structure – Red Cliff which produced approximately 1,136 tonnes from 1910 –1912 at a grade estimated to average 5% copper, and the Lower Montrose Zone which produced a total of 59 tonnes during 1939-41, averaging 84.4 g/t gold, 101 g/t silver, 0.91% copper, 3.5 percent lead and 4.41% zinc.
