Gold In Soil Zones Discovered On Zinger Property
Toronto, Ontario – September 16, 2014 – PJX Resources Inc. (“PJX” or the Company”) is pleased to announce the discovery of highly anomalous gold in soils on the Zinger Property located near Cranbrook, British Columbia. Two soil grids (West and East grids) were established approximately 900 metres apart to confirm the potential for gold mineralization in the Gold Run Lake area on the property. Highly anomalous soil results ranging up-to 743 parts per billion (“ppb”) and 4941 ppb (equivalent to 4.9 grams/tonne (“g/t”)) gold were encountered on the West and East grids, respectively.
The soil geochemistry surveys produced gold anomalies that appear to coincide with established geological trends and structures. The soil anomalies occur on strike with an 8 km long trend of gold mineralization in bedrock grab samples. The gold anomalies have never been trenched or drilled. Additional sampling is required as the anomalies appear to extend off the grids.
“The highly anomalous gold in soil results are impressive”, stated John Keating, President and CEO of PJX. “The anomalies not only occur in a favourable geological setting to host gold mineralization, but may also be related to a bedrock source for placer gold mined in Perry Creek downstream from Gold Run Lake.”
Maps of the soil anomalies and geology can be seen on the PJX web site at http://pjxresources.com/projects/zinger-property.
Soil samples from both East and West grids varied in gold concentration from 1.2 ppb up to 4941 ppb (4.9 g/t) with a median of 57.5 ppb and average of 119.4 ppb gold.
The West grid overlies thick quartzite packages of the Proterozoic age Middle Creston rock unit and has a median value of 70.0 ppb gold which is considerably higher than the median value of 9.2 ppb gold for Middle Creston rocks elsewhere on the property. The elevated gold concentration on this grid may be related to structural enrichment associated with north-northeast trending tight “Z” folds and intersecting northwest extensional faults. Mapping has identified these two major structural trends projecting into the soil survey area.
The East soil survey contains a very strong gold anomaly with three samples returning over 1000 ppb (1.0 g/t) gold. The highest value in the anomaly is 4941 ppb (4.9 g/tonne). The anomaly appears to extend south – southeast from the sample site with the highest gold value obtained. Gold mineralization may be preferentially concentrated at the intersection of a northwest trending, southwest dipping extensional fault and a northeast trending, northwest dipping splay of the Perry Creek thrust fault within a more argillaceous rock unit.

The company considers that the Zinger Property geology and mineralization support the potential for Sediment Hosted Vein (“SHV”) gold mineralization. SHV deposits can be significant in size, such as the Sukoi Log gold deposit (20 million ounces) in Russia.
The Company plans to expand the soil surveys in the Gold Run Lake area. Geophysics is also being considered over the gold anomalies to help define targets for trenching or drilling in the future.
PJX continues to focus exploration on testing two large gravity anomalies (eastern and western) that may host zinc-lead-silver mineralization similar in style to the Sullivan Deposit located 35km north of the Vine Property. Only 3 holes have been drilled to a target depth of the footwall quartzite in the eastern anomaly area. Two of these holes, drilled in the 1990’s, intersected zinc, lead, silver massive sulphide mineralization. The third hole recently intersected a possible important structure for controlling potential mineralization. The western gravity target area has never been drilled.
The foregoing geological disclosure has been reviewed by John Keating, P.Geo. (a qualified person for the purpose of National Instrument 43-101 Standards of Disclosure for Mineral Projects). Mr. Keating is the President, CEO and a Director of PJX.
