Silver-Zinc-Lead

The Bowser Creek prospect is comprised of twenty (20) unpatented mining claims located on State of Alaska public lands wholly within the McGrath A-2 Quadrangle. There are three targeted prospects – Bowser Creek Headwaters; Bowser Creek Main and Bowser Creek Northeast, all located along Bowser Creek up to the headwaters.

During a heavy metals investigation of the southern Alaska Range in 1967 a U.S. Geological Survey Team discovered occurrences of lead, zinc and silver of potential economic significance. The Bowser Creek prospects were subsequently discovered during regional geological mapping and mineral investigations conducted in the southern Alaska Range by the U.S. Geological Survey and in 1968 and 1972.

The Bowser Creek prospects consists of disseminated to massive, sulfide mineralization in discrete, northwest trending, steeply dipping, quartz-carbonate veins and vein breccias cutting quartz porphyry of the Bowser Creek composite pluton. The quartz porphyry phase, which has been radiometrically, dated 60.4 Ma; it intrudes the Early to mid-Paleozoic Dillinger subterrane. Sulfide minerals include massive sphalerite and pyrrhotite, with lesser amounts of galena, chalcopyrite, and arsenopyrite. Pyrrhotite and arsenopyrite clearly crosscut previously deposited galena, sphalerite, and pyrite.

Highlights:

  • During a heavy metals investigation of the southern Alaska Range in 1967 a U.S. Geological Survey Team discovered occurrences of lead, zinc and silver (Pb-Zn-Ag) of potential economic significance.
  • Multiple walk up drill targets to be targeted to define a resource under JORC code.
