  • Glacier Lake Resources Inc. completed 2 reconnaissance surface exploration programs on its Silver Vista and Hackett properties
  • Silver Vista, the company’s principal project,  is a large, bulk-tonnage, clastic-sediment-hosted, disseminated copper-silver deposit
  • SV18-06 returned 153.4 meters averaging 28.9 grams per tonne silver equivalent

EXPLORATION ACTIVITY UPDATE- SILVER VISTA AND HACKETT PROPERTIES

Glacier Lake Resources Inc. has completed two reconnaissance surface exploration programs on its Silver Vista and Hackett properties. The Silver Vista property is the company’s principal project and is located near Smithers, B.C., with a focus on the discovery of a large, bulk-tonnage, clastic-sediment-hosted, disseminated copper-silver deposit. The Hackett property is located in the Sheslay area of northwestern British Columbia, strategically adjoins the eastern border of the Hat property, owned by Doubleview Capital Corp. and actively being explored by Hudbay Minerals Inc., the company’s joint venture partner. The work on both properties was completed by Exploration Facilitation Unlimited Inc.

Silver Vista property

The “MR Zone” on the Silver Vista property was drilled in the 1st quarter of 2018, with seven holes, totalling 1,273 metres completed. All drilling was directed at the “MR Zone”, which represented the first drilling on the property since the initial program of 1,252.5 meters in 1991/1992. Highlights of the recent drill program include Hole SV18-06 which returned multiple horizons of mineralization over the entire length of the hole, with the entire drill hole length of 153.4 meters averaging 28.9 grams per tonne silver equivalent, (see press release May 23, 2018). Hole SV18-06 was the northernmost hole and the mineralized zone is open and undrilled to the west, north and northwest. Assay results from these two work programs are pending.

The “MR Zone” discovery (1990) comprises a mineralized showing in a logging road-cut. The property has been extensively logged recently, and a network of newly constructed roads was the focus of this summer exploration program to discover additional mineralization in outcrop exposures or boulders.

Work performed included till sampling using a backpack drill and prospecting/mapping. A total of 7 till samples and 25 rock grab samples were collected from three target areas (West, SE, Circle Road), away from the “MR Zone’ area. Outcrop exposure is limited, due to the slight, rolling topography, but weak observations of copper mineralization (oxide stain) were observed at all three locations. The West and SE Target areas were surveyed using a GDD Beep Mat to detect near-surface EM/Mag conductors, with one anomaly noted. Further details on the Silver Vista property can be found in the National Instrument 43-101 report on the property located under the company’s SEDAR profile.

Hackett property

The Hackett property is located approximately 38 kilometres northwest of the village of Telegraph Creek, and approximately 95 kilometres west-southwest of Dease Lake. The western border of the Hackett property is less than a kilometre away from Doubleview’s Lisle zone, and the Hoey Minfile prospect is located near Big Creek on the boundary with the Hat property. Exploration activity focused on expanding on the mineral showings discovered in 2014, related to the Hoey Minfile occurrence, which lies on the boundary with Doubleview. On the Hackett property the 2014 discovery mineral showing returned 24 and 594 parts per billion gold, and 598 and 2,970 parts per million copper, respectively. Approximately 150 m upstream on Big Creek from the discovery showing, another strongly oxidized showing returned 128 ppb gold and 935 ppm copper.

ing, with a crew using a fly-camp located on the property, serviced by helicopter form Dease Lake. In total 26 rock samples were collected from the area of the 2014 sampling in a steep ravine on the western flank of the property. The majority of samples collected were gossanous fine-grained mafic volcanics, many of which contained quartz -carbonate veins/veinlets. In addition, 33 soil samples were collected using augers from within a target zone projects as the extension of the Hoey Zone.

The TSX Venture Exchange has accepted for filing the company’s issuance of 734,095 shares at an average price of $0.0725 in consideration of certain services provided to the company pursuant to an agreement dated May 25, 2017.

$GLI.ca Glacier Lake Drills 153m of 28.9 g/t AgEq at Silver Vista $JAX.ca $GTT.ca

Posted by AGORACOM-Eric at 8:33 AM on Wednesday, May 23rd, 2018

  • Completed Seven holes totaling 1,273 metres on the “MR” target
  • Significant silver-copper hosted in fine-grained, clastic sediments was intersected in all 7 holes
  • Hole SV-18-06 returned multiple horizons of mineralization over the entire length of the hole 153.4 metre length averaging 28.9 grams per tonne (g/t) silver equivalent

Glacier Lake Resources Inc. has released results from its maiden diamond drill program on its Silver Vista property located near Smithers, B.C.

Significant silver-copper mineralization hosted in fine-grained, clastic sediments was intersected in all seven holes. Hole SV-18-06 returned multiple horizons of mineralization over the entire length of the hole, with the 153.4 metre length averaging 28.9 grams per tonne (g/t) silver equivalent (Ag Eqv *1), comprised of 16.1 g/t Ag, 0.05 percent copper (% Cu), and 0.10 % zinc (Zn). Hole SV-18-06 was the northernmost hole and the mineralized zone is open and undrilled to the west, north and northwest.

“Results from our maiden drill program on the Silver Vista ‘MR’ target support a large mineralizing system, with excellent potential to expand the silver-copper zones to the northwest and west,” says Saf Dhillon, President and Chief Executive Officer. Surface work will resume in June to refine the multiple soil geochemistry targets prior to a Phase 2 drill program. The company is fully permitted for 10,000 metres of drilling at upward of 40 sites.

The drill results were interpreted and assessed based on copper equivalent grades (Cu Eqv) of +/= 0.50 % Cu Eqv., and +/= 0.20% Cu Eqv.

The following are the intercepts base on +/= 0.50 % Cu Eqv.:

*1 {A –} Copper and silver equivalents are calculated based on the values of copper, silver and zinc, and metal prices of $16.50/ounce for silver, $3.05/lb for copper and $1.35/lb for zinc.

Seven holes, totaling 1,273 metres were completed on the “MR” target, representing the first drilling on the Silver Vista property since the initial 1991-1992 Equity Silver Mines Ltd. (a division of Placer Dome Inc., now Barrick Gold Corp.) program of 1,252.5 metres in 14 holes. Preliminary interpretations include:

A large, mineralizing system is indicated, with multiple, stacked zones of silver, copper and zinc mineralization occurring from outcrops to depths over 200 metres. Hole SV18-06 was mineralized from the overburden collar (4.6 m) to a depth of 157. 9 meters. Holes SV18-04 was mineralized from the collar to 49.0 meters, and hole SV18-07 was mineralized from the collar to 43.0 meters (see table below).

Near surface stacked zones are indicated by the recent drill program. Outcrop exposure is very limited due to subtle topography, however extensive soil geochemistry has uncovered numerous other silver and copper anomalies interpreted to have potential for further discovery of similar mineralization to the “MR target.”

The silver, copper and zinc mineralization is finely disseminated in multiple sedimentary horizons, but not obvious to the naked eye. A portable XRF (X-ray fluorescence) unit was successful in the preliminary identification of mineralized zones and helped guide the progress of the drill program. The mineralization appears to be broadly stratabound in preferred sandstone horizons with the sediments displaying a moderate north to northwest dip. Plant debris and organic matter are encouraging indicators, but alteration and veining are visibly minor and appear to be unrelated to elevated metal values.

Based on the recently completed drill program the sediments appear to be dipping moderately to the north. Holes SV18-01 and SV18-02 are therefore drilled with the dip and appear to have shallow intersection angles, in the order of 20 degrees to 30 degrees. The remaining five holes were drilled across the dip and therefore appear to have steeper intersections angles in the order of 60 to 70 degrees. Further drilling, with multiple holes on the same section or “fence”, is required to confirm the dip of the stacked mineralized bodies and the enclosing sediments.

Further details can be found in the National Instrument 43-101 report on the property located under the company’s SEDAR profile.

Quality assurance/quality control

The entire length of core for each of the seven drill holes was sawn and sampled at continuous 1.0-metre intervals, with occasional shorter or longer intervals based on apparent wallrock and mineralization contact. Supervision, organization and sawing of drilling core samples was undertaken by personnel from geological consultant Mammoth Geological Ltd. Half of the core was bagged, sealed and securely stored until shipment to the laboratory. The other half was retained in a secure storage location. Certified reference standards and blanks were placed in the sample stream of each drill hole alternating at every 25th interval. The secured and sealed samples were packed into rice bags, sealed and securely stored until they were turned over to the local trucking company for transport to the ALS Minerals Laboratory in North Vancouver, B.C.

All core samples were analyzed utilizing ALS’s MEICP-61 procedure, a four-acid digestion of a one-gram sample with an ICP finish. Samples with overlimit copper or silver values received an ME-OG62 analysis, a four-acid digestion of a 0.5-gram sample with ICP-AES finish.

In addition to Glacier Lake’s third-party standards, a routine quality assurance/quality control (QA/QC) procedure monitored the analytical quality at the lab. Certified reference materials (CRMs), pulp duplicates and blanks were inserted into each lab batch of samples. The Glacier Lake and ALS Lab QA/QC data showed no irregularities.

$GLI.ca Glacier Lake Completes Phase 1 Drill Program at Silver Vista $IVN.ca

Posted by AGORACOM-Eric at 10:10 AM on Monday, March 26th, 2018

  • Initial drill program focused on the “MR” area, a clastic sediment-hosted, fine-grained, disseminated copper-silver zone
  • Seven (7) holes, totaling 1,273 metres were completed
  • 2 deeper holes (average depth 282.4 meters) drilled southeast to northwest
  • 5 shallower holes with an average depth (142.0 meters) drilled northwest to southeast

 

VANCOUVER, British Columbia, March 26, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Glacier Lake Resources Inc. (TSX-V:GLI) (“Glacier” or the “Company”) has completed the Phase 1 diamond drill program on its Silver Vista property near Smithers, British Columbia. This initial drill program was focused on the main “MR” showing, a clastic sediment-hosted, fine-grained, disseminated copper-silver zone. The core for Hole SV18-01 has been sent to the ALS Minerals laboratory in North Vancouver, B.C. with results to be released once received and reviewed.

Seven (7) holes, totaling 1,273 metres were completed. Glacier’s program represents the first drilling on the Silver Vista property since the 1991-1992 Equity Silver Mines Ltd. (a division of Placer Dome Inc., now Barrick Gold Corp.) program of 14 holes, totaling 1,252.5 metres.  The 2018 program comprised two deeper holes (average depth 282.4 meters) drilled southeast to northwest and five shallower holes (average depth (142.0 meters) drilled northwest to southeast, testing mineralization in the historic Equity drill holes, and/or soil and rock Ag and Cu surface geochemistry from the 2011 to 2013 Amarc Resources Ltd., surface programs.

The drilling indicates a moderate, north to northwest dip to the sedimentary units. Visible mineralization is not obvious, so Glacier employed a portable XRF unit to aid in identification of mineralized zones to assist in drilling of subsequent holes. Elevated levels of silver, copper and zinc were noted in multiple horizons within the drill holes.  Glacier Lake cautions investors the XRF readings were used only to direct subsequent drilling and only analyses from the North Vancouver ALS Minerals laboratory will be reported and relied on by the Company.

Upon receipt and review of the assay data from the 2018 drill program, Company geologists will plan and budget a surface program to start after spring break-up. While the main “MR” road-cut showing is the most advanced target, Amarc 2011 to 2013 soil geochemistry outlined an area of anomalous Ag and Cu approximately 1.5 kilometres by 2.0 kilometres around the MR prospect area. This area had multiple Ag and Cu soil geochemical anomalies also defined.

Further details can be found in the 43-101 report on the property located under the Company’s SEDAR profile.

Quality assurance/quality control

The entire length of core for each of the 7 drill holes are currently being sawn and sampled at continuous 1.0 metre intervals, with occasional shorter or longer intervals based on apparent wall rock and mineralization contact. Supervision, organization and splitting of drilling core samples are undertaken by personnel from geological consultant Mammoth Geological Ltd. Half of the core will be securely shipped to the laboratory for analysis and the other half retained in a secure storage location. Certified reference standards and blanks will be placed in the sample stream of each drill hole alternating at every 25th interval. Samples were packed into rice bags, zap-strapped and securely stored until they were turned over to the local trucking company for transport to the ALS Minerals Laboratory in North Vancouver, B.C.

All core samples will be analyzed utilizing ALS’s MEICP-61 procedure, a four-acid digestion of a one-gram sample with an ICP finish. Samples with over limit copper or silver values will receive an ME-OG62 analysis, a four-acid digestion of a 0.5-gram sample with ICP-AES finish.

A routine quality assurance/quality control (QA/QC) procedure is adopted to monitor the analytical quality at the lab. Certified reference materials (CRMs), pulp duplicates and blanks are inserted into each lab batch of samples. QA/QC data at the lab are attached to the assay certificates for each batch of samples.

Further details can be found in the recently completed 43-101 report on the property located under the Company’s SEDAR profile.
