The wholly owned Hungry Creek property is comprised of 74 mineral claims totalling 38,852.92 km². The property is located 35 km west of Kimberley, BC. The northern and southern property boundary is accessible by good logging roads while the interior of the property is best accessed by helicopter. Geologically the property is hosted within the Mesoproterozoic Belt-Purcell basin and is being targeted for strata-bound Cu-Co-Ag analogous to other Belt-Purcell hosted deposits such as Sheep Creek, Spar Lake, Rock Creek, Montanore (Montana), and the Blackbird district (Idaho).
Prospecting within the Hungry Creek drainage in 2019 identified several semi-massive to massive sulphide (pyrite-chalcopyrite-chalcocite) bearing quartzite boulders. The sulphide bearing float boulders commonly exceed 1 cubic meter and have been traced within the Hungry Creek streambed to an apparent float cut-off. Similar boulders have also been identified within the Flatrock Creek drainage immediately north of Hungry Creek.

The charactertistics, origin and exploration potential for sediment-hosted Cu +Ag Mineralization in the Purcell Supergroup, Canada
Select sulphide bearing float boulders in Hungry Creek and Flatrock Creek have returned highly elevated values for cobalt (up to 0.36%), copper (up to 5%), silver (33.5 g/t) and gold (1.49 g/t) (See Table 1 below). Testing of the sulphide rich boulders by handheld ohmmeter indicate high levels of electrical conductivity.
Note: Rock float samples were randomly selected and weighed between 0.54kg and 1.7kg.
All rock samples were placed in numbered and sealed bags and sent via secure transport to MSA Laboratory in Langley, BC for sample preparation and analyses. Rock samples were crushed down to 2 mm and a 250g split was pulverized to better than 85% passing 75µm. Sample cuts were subjected to a multi-element aqua regia digestion and analyzed for gold, silver and an additional 49 elements using inductively coupled plasma – auger electron spectroscopy/ mass spectrometry (ICP-AES/MS). Overlimit samples on copper and lead were analysed by a 4-acid inductively coupled plasma auger electrons spectroscopy (ICP-AES) finish. MSALabs is an ISO 9001 registered laboratory and has a quality control program in place which includes the insertion of standard, blank, and duplicate samples, as well as conducting repeat analyses.
The 711 Target zone at Hungry Creek was the focus of the drilling in 2022.
Drilling of the five drill holes (1442m) on Hungry Creek-711 Target was completed in August 2022 (Figures 4, 5 and 6 below). This drilling, targeted sediment hosted – stratiform copper-silver-cobalt mineralization within the middle to Upper Creston Formation.
Visual copper mineralization in the form of chalcopyrite was observed in the 2022 drill holes on the 711 target. Intense sericite alteration in the upper Creston Formation quartzites together with carbonate alteration in the form of ankerite was associated with the mineralization.
