The road accessible DD Property is close to rail, power and a local workforce, and is located approximately 35 km southwest of Cranbrook, British Columbia. The property is comprised of the DD claims, 440 ha of land, that PJX optioned from Doug Anderson (50%) and David Pighin (50%), and DD Extension Claims, 1900 hectares (ha) of land owned by PJX.
The Company believes that the DD Property has similar potential to the Company’s Vine and West Basin Properties for hosting a Sedex deposit. Historical drilling by other companies proximal to the DD Property intersected zinc-lead mineralization at the same time horizon that the Sullivan Sedex deposit was formed, which is located approximately 45 km north of the DD Property. The historical mineralization combined with the Company’s new insight on geological controls for mineralization on PJX’s Vine Property supports the potential for a Sedex type deposit on the DD Property. Mineralization at the Vine and West Basin Properties appear to be spatially associated with the Moyie fault structure. The Company believes that the Moyie fault is similar to the Kimberley fault that was important in controlling zinc-lead-silver mineralization at the Sullivan Deposit.
The Sullivan time horizon target is estimated to be about 900m to 1200m deep on the DD Property. Only one hole has been drilled on the property and it was not drilled deep enough to test the target horizon.
Geological data from historical drilling by other companies in the area is being used to assess potential target areas for future drilling on the DD Property.
