ArcWest President & CEO Tyler Ruks commented: “The Babine area is a significant porphyry copper-gold district in British Columbia which includes Glencore’s past-producing Bell and Granisle mines, and Pacific Booker’s advanced stage Morrison project. The Sparrowhawk property is situated in between the Bell-Granisle and Morrison deposits, with mineral claims that are contiguous with both Glencore’s and Pacific Booker’s land positions. Importantly, the Sparrowhawk project is situated along a prospective corridor which contains both the controlling structures for Babine-district porphyry copper-gold deposits, and associated, widespread porphyry copper-gold occurrences and high grade breccias, all of which remain untested by drilling. We are looking forward to exploring the project in 2019.”
The Proposed Transaction is subject to receipt of all necessary regulatory approvals including approval of the TSX Venture Exchange.
