Omineca Mining and Metals Ltd has reported that it has commenced a 2000 m drill programme at the Mouse Mountain project located approximately 15 km due west of Omineca’s Wingdam gold project in the Cariboo Mining District of south-central British Columbia. The diamond drill programme is part of the option agreement to acquire up to a 50% interest in CanAlaska Uranium Ltd’s Mouse Mountain Project. The programme is expected to run for 30 – 45 days.
Mouse Mountain is an alkalic copper-gold porphyry project located in the prolific NW-SE trending Quesnel Terrane which is immediately adjacent (west of) the similar trending Barkerville Terrane that hosts Omineca’s Wingdam Gold project. Located between the nearby Mt. Milligan and Mount Polley mines within the Quesnel Terrane, the project is centred on a hydrothermal system with copper-gold mineralisation spread over a large area (over 1.5 km along strike) associated with typical copper porphyry style alteration. The current programme is aimed at expanding the zones discovered by previous operators and CanAlaska by drilling several untested targets and chargeability anomalies identified by previously conducted IP survey, soil geochemistry and new sampling.
