Furthermore, we are pleased to welcome Skeena as our largest shareholder. StrikePoint is now well-positioned for 2020 with our two flagship precious metals properties in the prolific Golden Triangle, Willoughby and Porter. “
The Porter – Silverado Mines
The Porter Project contains two shears-hosted silver-rich vein systems: the Silverado and Prosperity-Porter Idaho. The showings are 2km apart, located on opposite sides of Mt. Rainey, overlooking the town of Stewart. The Project is located strategically at the head of the Portland Canal, a deep-water port with year-round, ice-free access.
The initial discovery of silver mineralization on Mt. Rainey occurred in the early 1900s. Prosperity-Porter Idaho veins were the focus of the initial work. The mineralization is hosted in six parallel dipping shear zones, traced 200 meters on surface and one kilometre down dip with widths between 2 and 13 meters. The vein system was mined between 1929 and 1931 and produced 27,123 tonnes with recovered grades of 2,542 g/t silver (73.8 oz/ton) and 1 g/t gold (yielding approximately 2.2 million ounces of silver). The ore was shipped to the port at Stewart via aerial tramway.
Historic Silver Resource
The Porter Project contains an historical Indicated Resource of 394,700 tonnes grading 868 g/t silver, 3.37% lead and 1.41% zinc (435,000 tons @ 25.2 oz/ton silver or a contained 11 million ounces) and an Inferred Resource of 88,900 tonnes grading 595 g/t silver (97,900 tons @ 17.3 oz/ton silver or a contained 1.7 million ounces)
Estimates of mineral resources are dated March 10, 2008, and were prepared by independent consulting geologist N.C. Carter, Ph.D., P. Eng. for Raimount Energy Inc. and re-stated for Mount Rainey Silver Inc. on May 15, 2012, according to CIM Standards on Mineral Resources and Reserves. The previous estimates made use of an extensive database detailing both underground sampling programs as well as surface and underground diamond drilling. The reader is cautioned that the Qualified Person on behalf of StrikePoint has not done sufficient work to verify either the underlying sampling data or the calculation methodology to consider this to be a current resource, and as a result, StrikePoint is treating this mineral resource as a Historical Estimate, as defined in National Instrument 43-101. StrikePoint has not yet determined what work needs to be completed to upgrade or verify the Historical Estimate.
