Toronto, Ontario – April 24, 2023 – PJX Resources Inc. (“PJX”) is pleased to announce that processing of airborne magnetic data by Expert Geophysics has identified a large donut shaped magnetic anomaly that occurs in an area with peripheral anomalies of copper, gold, silver, molybdenum, arsenic and other metallic elements in soil. Porphyry copper-gold type deposits are known to have donut shaped magnetic geophysical signatures. The target is part of the road accessible Estella Basin area on PJX’s Dewdney Trail Property near Cranbrook, British Columbia.
John Keating, President of PJX commented: “The structural and geological environment of the Sullivan Mining District has many similarities to the Butte Mining District located to the south in Montana (see Figure 7). Butte is a large producer of intrusion related copper, silver, and molybdenum. We believe that the 116 km² Dewdney Trail Property has potential to host intrusion related copper-gold-silver and possibly molybdenum deposits. One reason that these deposit types were not discovered in the past may be because the intrusions with mineralisation are only visible at surface in the Estella Basin where erosion has exposed just the top of the intrusions on the side of the mountains.”
Figure 1 – Airborne magnetic map. Estella Basin’s First target to test is the syenite/alkalic intrusion with quartz veins and gold, copper and silver mineralisation discovered last year. Intrusion appears as a magnetic high (red colour). Additional targets are the Donut shaped magnetic anomaly and a syenite/alkalic porphyry with limited access at the base of a cliff. Porphyry copper-gold deposits are known to have a magnetic high and/or a donut shaped magnetic signature.
Photo A – Estella Basin Target Area. Drill ready targets to test. Cluster of syenite/alkalic intrusions with gold, copper, silver and molybdenum mineralisation potential. Erosion has only exposed the top of the intrusions on mountain sides below the peaks. Porphyry copper-gold deposits are known to have donut shaped magnetic signatures. A large donut shaped magnetic anomaly occurs with the peak in the distance. This anomaly and soil geochem anomalies (Figures 2-6) suggest potential for porphyry copper-gold type mineralisation at depth beneath the mountain (that has not been exposed by erosion).

Gold in soil anomalies occur with and/or proximal to the First target to test (syenite/alkalic intrusion with gold, copper, silver) and the location of the Donut shaped magnetic anomaly (porphyry copper-gold deposits are known to have a donut shaped magnetic signature).
