Toronto, Ontario – August 20, 2018 – PJX Resources Inc. (“PJX”) is pleased to announce that Teck Resources Limited (Teck) has received the necessary permits to drill PJX’s DD Property. Drilling is planned to commence later this month, subject to potential backcountry restrictions in light of current forest fire hazards in British Columbia, and be carried out into the Fall.
“Historical drilling adjacent to the DD Property defined geological and geochemical vectors for a potential Sullivan-type system, which increase toward the DD Property,” states Dave Pighin, PGeo for PJX Resources. “The Sullivan deposit occurs at a geological time called the Sullivan Horizon. The thickness, alteration and anomalous zinc-lead concentrations of the Sullivan Horizon progressively increases in intensity the closer holes are drilled to the DD Property. A similar increase in thickness, alteration and anomalous zinc-lead concentrations in the Sullivan Horizon occurs in proximity to the Sullivan Deposit.”
“The Magnetotelluric (MT) geophysical survey carried out by Quantec Geoscience on the DD Property has defined an MT anomaly that appears to coincide with the anticipated depth of the favourable Sullivan Horizon,” states the President and CEO of PJX, John Keating. “The Sullivan deposit contained iron sulphides that could be detected by an MT survey and cause an MT anomaly. The MT anomaly on the DD Property occurs on two widely spaced lines, 700 metres apart, and is open to the north and south. The DD Property MT anomaly is at a depth and a size that supports the potential for a Sullivan Type target.”
PJX has granted Teck an option to earn up to a 75% interest in the DD Property (see March 5, 2018 press release for more details.).
The road-accessible DD Property is located approximately 120 km east of Teck’s Metallurgical Complex in Trail, BC and about 45 kilometres south of the Sullivan Mine, which operated for over 90 years before being closed in 2001.
The foregoing geological disclosure has been reviewed by Dave Pighin P.Geo. and John Keating P.Geo. (qualified persons for the purpose of National Instrument 43-101 Standards of Disclosure for Mineral Projects). Mr. Pighin is the consulting geologist for PJX on the DD and Vine Properties. Mr. Keating is the President, Chief Executive Officer and a Director of PJX.
The Company’s board of directors has authorized granting stock purchase options to certain directors, employees and consultants to acquire an aggregate of 1,925,000 common shares at an exercise price of $0.25, expiring August 19, 2023. The foregoing is subject to regulatory acceptance.
