Other abbreviations: c-gr = coarse-grained, m-gr = medium-grained, diss = disseminated.
In 2021, the focus will be on continued re-assessment of the Foggy Day, Bonanza, Butte and Gallant Boy vein prospects, and locating, mapping and sampling the Noble Five and HYM gold-silver-lead vein prospects. Fieldwork in 2021 will also include the evaluation of several ultramafic bodies for their nickel-cobalt-copper potential. The ultramafic bodies occur within rocks of the Index Formation along the approximate trace of the Silver Cup anticline, the principal ore-controlling structure in the camp.
In anticipation of a follow-up diamond-drill program, the company has submitted a multi-year drilling permit application to the British Columbia Ministry of Energy, Mines and Low Carbon Innovation for review and approval.
Nader Vatanchi, CEO and Director, said, "Spey Resources is excited to be returning to the Silver Basin project to follow-up the promising gold and silver results obtained in 2020. The potential for discovery of important concentrations of nickel-cobalt-copper mineralization is very intriguing and, significantly, may provide a second, distinctly different type of deposit for the project."
