Wedgemount Resources Corp. has commenced its 2021 field exploration programme at the Cookie copper-gold project, located in the southern Toodoggone copper belt of north-central British Columbia.
The centre of the recently expanded 28 000 ha Cookie projectis approximately 40 km south of Centerra Gold’s past producing Kemess copper-gold mine and approximately 200 km north of Smithers B.C. Historical work from the late-1960s to the early 2000’s – including geological mapping, geophysical and geochemical surveys, and limited drilling – have outlined numerous porphyry-related copper-gold targets. These areas are defined by widespread hydrothermal alteration zones, copper and gold mineralisation, and strong, yet un-drill-tested, copper-in-soil geochemical anomalies.
Mark Vanry, President & CEO of Wedgemount, comments:
“We are extremely excited to kick off our inaugural Cookie exploration programme. The prospectivity of the Cookie project for copper and gold makes it one of the most compelling targets in the southern Toodoggone region of British Columbia. The 2021 programme will be the first comprehensive exploration on the project for almost 20 years. Further, the Cookie program marks the second of three property-scale exploration programmes to be undertaken by Wedgemount during 2021.”
