VANCOUVER BC / ACCESSWIRE / July 19, 2022 / Blackwolf Copper and Gold (“Blackwolf“, or the “Company“) (TSXV:BWCG) (OTC PINK:BWCGF) is pleased to announce that it has acquired the Rooster Property through staking, its fifth claim group in the Golden Triangle area and its first in British Columbia, located northwest of the towns of Stewart, BC and Hyder, AK. The Rooster Property is contiguous with the Company’s high-grade Texas Creek gold-silver Property, located to the south across the Canada/US border. The Property is northwest of Ascot’s Premier Gold Project that is currently in development and south of the historically producing Scottie Gold and Granduc Copper Mines.
“The Rooster Property, our first in BC, is located immediately north of our Solo Prospect on the Texas Creek Property, in Alaska, where miners in the 1930’s tunneled through glacial ice looking for the source of ‘Brucejack Style’ gold-silver veins. The rapidly melting glaciers in the Stewart and Hyder area are exposing multiple new bedrock outcroppings that have never previously been prospected. We look forward to getting on the ground at Rooster shortly.” said Rob McLeod, President and CEO of Blackwolf. “The claims were named in honor of Rooster Olson, a recently passed, legendary and eccentric elder mariner from Stewart and Hyder who was well-loved by locals.“
Despite significant exploration activity in Canada, virtually no modern exploration has been performed on Blackwolf’s Hyder area properties since the 1930’s. Bridge washouts in the early 1960s limited road access to the Properties. Blackwolf’s technical team has significant experience exploring in the Golden Triangle. The 4,690 hectare Rooster Property is located north of the Texas Creek Property and the international border. It is primarily covered with glacial ice, with increasing new areas of exposure due to annual melting. Due to limited modern exploration, no historic prospects or sampling have been documented on the claims, despite its significant size. Government geologic mapping has interpreted the Property as underlain by Hazelton Group volcanic and coeval intrusive rocks, older Stuhini Group sediments and younger, Cretaceous- and Tertiary-aged intrusives.
Blackwolf has commenced surface exploration work on the Hyder Area Properties and is currently waiting on drill permits; upon receipt, expected shortly, the Company intends to drill the large, high-grade gold-silver on the Cantoo Property, southeast of the Rooster Claims.
THE GOLDEN TRIANGLE
Blackwolf’s Hyder Properties are located in the Golden Triangle, a regional mineral belt in Northwest British Columbia and Southeast Alaska. Significant mines and deposits in the area include: Brucejack, Premier, Big Missouri, Scottie Gold, Red Mountain, Galore Creek, KSM, Eskay Creek, Porter and Torbrit, and new discoveries by Goliath Resources and Eskay Mining. The region, centered around the towns of Stewart, BC and Hyder, Alaska, has world-class metal endowment as evidenced by its numerous mineral occurrences and mineral resources. Set in the Stikinia Paleozoic-Mesozoic island arc terrane, the stratigraphy of the area is dominated by Triassic to Jurassic rocks of the Stuhini and Hazelton Groups, respectively. Porphyry, VMS, and other intrusion-related deposits in the area are dominantly hosted in the Jurassic Hazelton Group strata associated with coeval intrusions, with commonly overprinting Eocene epithermal-style vein-dominated mineralization.
Acquired through staking in 2021 and 2022, Blackwolf has a 100% interest in its Hyder properties which are comprised of four claim groups in Alaska (Texas Creek, Cantoo, Mineral Hill and Casey), totaling 4,360 hectares across 534 U.S. Federal Mining claims and four State of Alaska Mining claims and one claim group in British Columbia totaling 4,690 hectares. These properties are located between 10 to 20 kilometers northwest of Hyder, six kilometers south of the past-producing Granduc Copper Mine, 10 kilometers south of the past-producing Scottie Copper Mine and due west of the past-producing Premier Gold Mine, currently in development by Ascot Resources. The claims are underlain by regionally prospective Lower Hazelton volcanics and coeval Texas Creek polyphase intrusives. Very limited modern exploration has been performed in the area, with virtually none in the last 25 years.
