Sable Resources Enters into An Agreement to Acquire Perk-Rocky Project

Sable Resources Ltd. has announced the acquisition of a 100 % stake in the Perk-Rocky Project, situated 225 km west of Williams Lake, British Columbia, Canada.

Perk-Rocky is a porphyry copper-gold exploration project with 10,475 ha of mineral claims at the boundary between Stikine equivalent volcanic Terrane and newer coast range intrusives.

The Project is also located within a regional structural belt that includes the New Prosperity, IKE, and Empress porphyry deposits and porphyry-related projects, as well as the historical high-grade Bralorne gold mine, which collectively emphasizes the mineral endowment and prospectivity of this mineralized belt.

The center of Perk-Rocky is a large porphyry-style alteration zone that stretches at least 8 km by 5 km and is home to several mineral occurrences, including the Briton prospect (Fe), Rya, Perkins Peak, Chilco, and nearby showings (Cu-Au).

The Project has only experienced minimal exploration, with brief campaigns of talus and rock sampling, an airborne VTEM and magnetic survey, and just 2,049 meters of drilling in 2021, despite substantial alteration and mineralization. The interpreted lithocap size has been considerably expanded by subsequent multi-band WorldView-3 satellite work.

Perk-Rocky’s metallogenic setting, large surface footprint, favorable erosional level and alteration style, and geochemical signature align with Sable’s objective of discovering large porphyry Cu-Au deposits.  In addition to having at least three locations reporting outcropping Cu-Au porphyry mineralization and very good access, Perk-Rocky is also a good project from an operational point of view as we can advance it during the time of the South America winter when we reduce field activities in Argentina.
