Goldcliff Resource has expanded their wholly owned Tulameen Project with the acquisition of the Goldrop claims. The claims, which are located in the Copper Mountain district of British Columbia, adjoin the Tulameen Project.
The Whipsaw target located in the 26,333 ha Tulameen Copper property, at a distance of 7 km from the Copper Mountain ore bodies in the southwest direction, shows promise of exploration potential, thus paving the way for possible new discoveries of copper porphyry. A 3D-Induced Polarization survey (3D-IP) carried out at Whipsaw to establish drill targets show scattered deposits of Sulphide right down to a depth of 500 m. The exploration surface has been assessed to span 2.5 km by 4.5 km. The Goldrop claims which are characterized by mineralized showings of 0.77% copper,8.85% zinc, 1.30 grams per tonne silver and 0.14 grams per tonne gold from surface and drill samples, enhance the discovery potential of the Whipsaw target.
A series of initial discoveries associated with the Whipsaw were made in 1974. It began with the Nev and Raven showings with the former highlighting 0.2 g/t silver and 0.231% copper and the latter highlighting 0.8 g/t silver, 0.165 g/t and 0.353% copper. The year 1974 also saw the Eagle discovery located to the south of the Nev and Raven showings with the showing highlighted by 1.0 g/t silver and 0.175% copper. The most recent discovery was that of the Trojan showing in 2011, located down the slope from the Eagle showing. This discovery was highlighted by 0.08 g/t gold, 4.8 g/t silver and 0.655% copper. The Goldrop acquisition is a value addition to the already existing list of showings pertaining to the Whipsaw target.
