Metallis Resources May Have A Golden Opportunity In The Highly-Sought After Golden Triangle Region

October 7, 2021
Metallis Completes IP Survey Over Cliff-Miles Porphyry Corridor at Kirkham

The Top Reasons to Consider Metallis Resources Inc. Canada TSXV: (MTS) U.S. OTC: (MTLFF)

  1. Metallis Resources Inc. recently announced the discovery of a substantial gold zone at the company’s Miles target. This forms part of the larger 7.5km long Hawilson Monzonite Porphyry Complex at its 100%-owned Kirkham Property.(5)
  2. This discovery could be a massive boon in the heart of British Columbia’s Golden Triangle- a robust mineral depot estimated to hold about 219 million ounces of gold, roughly 87.7 million pounds of copper, and nearly 1,342 million ounces of silver.(6) Yet, compared to other mining districts, it may be underexplored.(2)
  3. Metallis recently acquired the Kirkham Property, which was carefully assembled by a world-renowned copper-gold expert, Rodney Kirkham. The property features several geological environments – porphyry, shear vein, and magmatic sulphide – and could potentially have world-class mineral discoveries.(6)
  4. With a solid infrastructure already in place, Metallis has begun its 2021 exploration program at the Kirkham Property. It expects to report exploration results around mid-September 2021.(A)
  5. Some of the top gold explorers in the region have been acquired, including GT Gold, Red Chris Development. Seabridge Gold also acquired the Snowfield Property in the area.(B)

The “Golden Triangle” may be one of the most prolific mining areas in the world.

Estimated to hold about 219 million ounces of gold, approximately 87.7 million pounds of copper, and about 1,342 million ounces of silver, this mineral-rich region of British Columbia might be the most mouth-watering mining opportunity in the world today.(2)

For one, Newmont Mining just acquired GT Gold, which has been advancing its Tatogga property in that very region.(1)

“We are excited to expand our world-class portfolio to include the Tatogga project in the Tahltan Territory located in the highly sought-after Golden Triangle district of British Columbia,” said Newmont president and CEO Tom Palmer, as quoted by Mining Weekly.(1)

Second of all, as reported by Resource World:

“Over 130 million ounces of gold, 800 million ounces of silver and 40 billion pounds of copper have been discovered in the Golden Triangle and this is only scratching the surface. Some of this wealth came from the famous Eskay Creek Mine that was Canada’s highest-grade gold mine and the world’s fifth largest silver producer. Exploration results by numerous junior explorers have made it clear that the Golden Triangle is metal-rich with further significant discovery potential.”(3)

In short, the “Golden Triangle” could hold immense potential for Metallis Resources Inc. Canada TSXV: (MTS) U.S. OTC: (MTLFF). Metallis is a miner in the heart of this district, sitting in an area with gold resources as potentially fertile as those within the U.S. ‘s Carlin Trend. In addition, the company’s main target (the Cliff Porphyry Corridor) sits ONLY about 22 kms from Seabridge’s KSM deposits, which are of similar age and dimensions as that of Metallis’ project.(4)

This is a big deal, considering KSM holds about 76 million ounces measured and indicated, along with about 66 million ounces inferred. Numbers like this could make it one of the top 10 gold deposits in the world.

Just Who is Metallis Resources Inc. Canada TSXV: (MTS) U.S. OTC: (MTLFF)?

Metallis Resources is a junior gold exploration company in the heart of northwestern British Columbia’s Golden Triangle. The company recently discovered a substantial gold zone at its Miles target amid the prolific Eskay Camp. This property also forms part of the larger 7.5km long Hawilson Monzonite Porphyry Complex at its 100%-owned Kirkham Property.(5) The Golden Triangle has sought-after minerals, and is well-known for the past-producing Eskay Creek and Snip gold mines, Seabridge’s KSM porphyry deposits, and Pretium’s Brucejack gold mine.(5)

Metallis Resources Inc. Canada TSXV: (MTS) U.S. OTC: (MTLFF) Appears Technically Golden

After bottoming out at around 23 cents around Jan 29, 2021, the MTS stock rallied to about 55 cents around Jun 01, 2021, before slightly dipping along with gold prices. However, if gold prices accelerate back past roughly $2,000 this year, the Metallis Resources stock could potentially retest a prior 2020 peak of about 64 cents hit Aug 05, 2020.(7)

In addition, as of July 27, 2021, its 20 – 200 Day MACD Oscillator, 50-100 day MACD oscillator, 50-150 Day MACD Oscillator, 50-200 Day MACD Oscillator, and its 150-day moving average, 200-day moving average, and 100-200 Day MACD Oscillator.(7)

Mining for Success:  Metallis Acquired the Kirkham Property

Very recently, Metallis acquired the Kirkham Property.

Kirkham features several geological environments –  porphyry, shear vein, and magmatic sulphide –  and has been carefully assembled by world-renowned copper-gold expert Rodney Kirkham. There could be significant potential for world-class mineral discovery here too.

In addition, Metallis Resources Inc. announced the discovery of a substantial gold zone at its Miles target. The Miles target forms part of the larger 7.5km long Hawilson Monzonite Porphyry Complex in the heart of the Kirkham Property.(5)

But what may be even more encouraging is that Metallis just announced the commencement of its 2021 exploration and drilling program at the Kirkham Property.(A)

Metallis’ President and CEO Fiore Aliperti stated “Our geological team is set to start an aggressive drill campaign and have been tasked with the goal of expanding the Cliff-Miles porphyry cluster and unlocking the depth potential of bulk tonnage-style copper-gold mineralization.” He went on to add, “It is fantastic to be able to throw Metallis’ name into the hat with other companies in the Golden Triangle with an active drill program. This program is a major step forward in advancing the Cliff gold-copper porphyry and showing the true size potential of this project.”(A)

Metallis’s geological team has launched detailed field investigations to optimize the placement of the collars in preparation for the drilling, which is due to start in the coming weeks. The Program includes field mapping, drill core re-logging, Induced Polarization, and ZTEM survey. It is designed to help target the near-surface gold and the deeper copper/gold-rich potassic zones along the 4 km long Cliff-Miles porphyry corridor.(A)

EXPLORATION PROGRAM HIGHLIGHTS:(A)

  • Field mapping focused on outlining the dimensions of the porphyry intrusions, alteration zones, structures, and morphology of the Cliff-Miles porphyry copper-gold system.
  • A total of ~22 line-km of high-resolution Induced Polarization (“IP”) proposed over the Cliff and Cole targets. The IP survey aims to outline the resistivity anomalies related to gold-bearing hydrothermal silicification and sulphides in the Cliff and Cole porphyry centers.
  • ZTEM survey over the entire Kirkham property focused on locating the buried porphyry core zones along the 7.5 km long Hawilson Monzonite Complex (News Releases April 7th and June 22h, 2021). The ZTEM resistivity contrast is expected to highlight the depth potential of the Cliff and Cole porphyry centers and other prospective targets at the Kirkham property.
  • LiDAR survey over the entire 106 km2 Kirkham property acquiring digital ortho-photos and a bare-earth Digital Elevation Model and other imagery products used for geological interpretations, drill hole control, planning, and logistics purposes.
  • Selective rock-chip and soil sampling grids over ZTEM and SkyTEM conductive anomalies targeting the volcanogenic massive sulphide mineralization at King East, Mount Dunn, and Rhyolite Ridge prospects at Kirkham.

DRILLING PROGRAM HIGHLIGHTS:(A)

  • ~8,000m of drilling in 13 drill holes designed to expand the near-surface gold and deeper copper-gold zones. Most of the 2021 drill holes are 100m to 500m apart and are designed to target high-grade zones and test the overlapping IP resistivity highs;
  • ~4,000m of drill core re-logging at Cliff with a particular focus on the well-mineralized M-Porphyry and patterns of alteration, veins, and sulphides affording vectors to deeper high-grade mineralization;
  • Selective short wave-length Infrared analysis to identify the distribution of alteration mineralogy and temperature stabilities leading to vectors toward the highly mineralized, hot core zones of the Cliff porphyry system; and
  • ~1,200m of geotechnical oriented core logging planned for investigating the anatomy and orientation of faults, porphyry intrusions, breccias, and veins defining the morphology of the Cliff porphyry system.

Metallis Resources Inc. Canada TSXV: (MTS) U.S. OTC: (MTLFF) May Also Have Copper Exposure 

Copper prices have been on a historic run in 2021 thanks to the economic recovery, growing demand for a greener future, and supply issues.

According to ETF Trends, Brent Cook, an economic geologist, “argued that estimates for supply increases range between roughly 1.5% and about 3.5% while demand is ‘projected to significantly exceed supply.’ The supply deficit is projected to increase over the next five to 10 years ‘primarily due to a dearth of new copper deposit discoveries, the timeline to bring a deposit into production,’ which can reach for a large deposit, and the fact that ‘most of the major deposits currently in production are in their golden years.’”(9)

Plus, “According to the International Copper Study Group (ICSG), world mine production declined by about 3.5% over the April to May period in 2020 due to related global lockdowns that triggered temporary mine shutdowns and lower production levels.”(9)

These catalysts could all lead to even more price increases for copper, all while building more momentum for Metallis Resources Inc. Canada TSXV: (MTS) U.S. OTC: (MTLFF).
