Volcanic-Hosted massive sulphide targets identified by coincident conductivity and geochemical anomalies

TCS location map


The TCS volcanic-hosted-massive-sulphide (VHMS) project is located thirteen kilometres east of Dease Lake, British Columbia.


The TCS project consists of 1,850 hectares of gentle terrain in northwestern British Columbia approximately thirteen kilometres from Dease Lake.  The project is hosted within the King Salmon allochthon, a 10-20 kilometre wide thrust and fault bounded block that contains the Kutcho VMS deposit (Measured and Indicated resources of 22.8 Mt grading 1.52% copper, 2.18% zinc and 0.39 grams per tonne (“g/t”) gold, and 12.8 Mt of Inferred resources grading 1.10% copper, 1.58% zinc, and 0.25 g/t gold)(1).

Exploration on the project includes geological mapping, geochemical sampling, and geophysics that identified a window of outcropping bi-modal metavolcanics coincident with anomalous copper and zinc in soils and associated float samples containing up to 3.2 % copper and 3.5 % zinc in the vicinity of the outcrop.

A 223 line-kilometre VTEM geophysical survey completed in 2023 identified several high priority conductors related to the anomalous surface geochemistry extending under a region of basal till veneer. These priority conductors are interpreted to be at the top of the folded bimodal volcanic section similar to the setting at the Kutcho project.

The conductors could be rapidly advanced to drill-ready massive sulphide targets with the potential to host high grade copper, zinc and potentially gold.
