Pacific Bay Minerals Extends Soil Geochemical Anomaly at Ax Silver Property

Pacific Bay Minerals has extended the multi-element soil geochemical anomaly for 600 m towards the northeast part through the MMI Phase II soil sampling campaign at the Ax Silver property, Northern BC, during 2011.

Currently, the multi-element soil geochemical anomaly, which was encountered by the 2010 soil sampling program, along with MMI soil geochemical anomaly, obtained during 2011, evaluates around 600 x 800 m.

The company planned the phase II exploration campaign to focus on the replacement-style, stratabound mineralization of copper, lead, silver and zinc identical to that present at the Silver Tip deposit located 40 km towards the northwest portion. Additionally, the sampling work for 2011 expanded the geochemical coverage over the property’s overburden-covered regions. The company gathered 109 MMI soil samples from around 7 km of the survey grid lines, controlled through GPS. The MMI soil sampling program for 2011 expanded the geochemical coverage of 2010 located towards the northeast part by around 600 m. This program outlined numerous multi-element geochemical anomalies, which can form at least one target zone of 300 x 600 m area. This target zone joining with rock and soil anomaly of 2010 measures about 600 x 800 m. The company has discovered many further individual geochemical anomalies, in which most of them can be extended.

The occurrence of elevated nickel in the MMI samples, obtained from the MMI soil grid’s northeastern portion, develops a coherent of length more than 1 km and thickness of 300 m.
