Scotch Creek Property is located 66 km to the northeast of Kamloops, BC, and to the west of Shuswap Lake within the Kamloops Mining Division. Kamloops has historically been an important mining center within British Columbia. Currently it hosts several active mines, as well as number of proposed mine developments. Metal deposits include copper, gold, and silver. The largest active mines in the Kamloops area are the New Afton, Highland Valley, Copper Mountain and Gibraltar mines. The city of Kamloops is a vital transportation hub providing the necessary infrastructure for economic production of mentioned metals.
IP/resistivity survey was carried out in 2012 with the purpose of exploration on the Scotch Creek Property to extend the known mineralization. This mineralization consists of massive and disseminated sulphides of the Noranda/Kuroko type. The sulphides are chalcopyrite, galena, sphalerite, pyrite, and arsenopyrite with associated gold and silver values. Together with the results of a soil geochemical survey, the results of the geophysical survey indicates that sulphide mineralization of economic interest is possible, namely as copper and lead in sulphides. It is also expected that zinc mineralization as well as silver values occur with the IP‐indicated sulphides. These studies are detailed by John Ostler in 2013 in a NI 43-101 Technical Report for Signal Exploration.
