Scottie Resources Corp. owns a 100% interest in the Ruby Silver property located in British Columbia’s Golden Triangle.
The Ruby Silver property is 21 kilometres north of Stewart, B.C. The property is comprised of 4 mineral claims covering approximately 4,300 hectares and is situated over numerous mineral occurrences.
The Ruby Silver claims cover the Ruby Silver showing consisting of a quartz-carbonate vein containing blebs and disseminations of pyrite and chalcopyrite, locally forming up to 10% of the vein. Malachite and azurite staining is present. The vein is up to 1.5 metres wide, strikes 110 degrees and dips 68 degrees southwest. The vein has been explored by 3 different adits. The main adit follows the footwall of the vein, which, in turn, appears to follow a porphyritic dike. Historic sampling of the vein mineralization in the tunnels assayed from 0.7 to 11.0 grams per tonne gold, 15.4 to 115.2 grams per tonne silver and trace to 9.3% copper over widths of 0.3 to 1.8 metres (Property File - Cited in Thios Resources Inc., Prospectus April, 1987).
The Roosevelt Ridge area within the Ruby Silver claim block contains abundant quartz +/-carbonate veins as well as breccia, stockwork and replacement zones. Many of them are barren but some are mineralized with pyrite, sphalerite, galena, chalcopyrite and malachite. Sulphide content ranges from trace to 5%. The veins are up to 0.6 metres wide and locally traced over 40 metres. In addition to mineralization in place, there are also numerous boulders which feature very similar host rocks and mineralization. Several of those boulders yielded highly anomalous results in gold and base metals. The highest gold assay obtained from in situ samples collected in the previous years returned 7.51 g/t Au and 3.45% Zn. Gold results came from float rocks containing 25% pyrite, 1% sphalerite and 1-2% arsenopyrite assayed up to 9.0 g/t Au and 0.25% Zn. A historic float of argillite cut by quartz stockwork with pyrite and sphalerite assayed 5.56 g/t Au and 3.56% Zn.
