About the Cuteye Group of Properties
The Property includes the Mister Jay (2373 ha), Lady Jane (242 ha), Lama (69 ha), and Missus Jay (468 ha) claim blocks covering twelve mineral showings in BC’s Golden Triangle, roughly 25km southwest of Glenora, British Columbia. The Property is underlain by Upper Triassic Stuhini Group volcanic and sedimentary rocks which are locally intruded by Late Triassic-Early Jurassic stocks and dykes. Multiple gold-silver-copper-lead-zinc showings have been discovered on the Property dating back to 1914, which have received little to no follow-up and no modern-day exploration.
- Historic rock sampling values ranging up to 11.3g/t Au (9 samples >1g/t Au), 347g/t Ag (18 samples >30g/t Ag), 7.9% Cu (20 samples >1% Cu), 5% Pb (6 samples >1% Pb), and 5% Zn (7 samples >1% Zn).1
- Historic soil samples on the Lady Jane block returned up to 1.7g/t Au (6 samples > 100ppb Au).1
- Historic heavy mineral sampling of streams within the Property returned values up to 11 g/t Au. 1
- QUEST-Northwest magnetic survey completed by Geoscience BC in 2011 identified a roughly 25km long northeast-southwest oriented magnetic lineament which is contiguous with the location and trend of the historic showings.
- Property lies less than 15km from a service road.
Gold Lion is planning a 2020 exploration program which will involve detailed mapping, prospecting and soil sampling over prospective targets on the Property including along the linear magnetic anomaly.
All sampling, geology, and geophysics maps for the Property can be found on the Company’s website at the following URL:
Oliver Friesen, a Director of Gold Lion, stated: “The acquisition of the Cuteye Group of Properties gives us great exposure to BC’s prolific Golden Triangle, while growing our portfolio of quality base and precious metal projects. The Property boasts encouraging rock and soil sampling results that have received very little modern-day exploration which we will look to follow up on during the 2020 field season.”
