Featured Project

Spences Bridge Regional Program:

The Spences Bridge Regional Program consists of a 226,035-hectare land package covering the over 70% Spences Bridge Gold Belt in southern British Columbia. The package represents one of the single largest staking exercises in BC history. A strategic alliance has been formed with Westhaven Ventures Inc. (“Westhaven”) who owns the Shovelnose high-grade epithermal discovery contiguous to Talisker’s claims.

Talisker will be aggressively exploring the area with an extensive geochemical program beginning in May 2019. With up to 25 geologists in the field, this will be one of the largest greenfields programs undertaken in BC this year and the largest ever in the Spences Bridge Gold Belt.

The Remington claim package consists of 31,651 hectares distributed between 20 contiguous claims located 34 kilometers west of the northern tip of the Talisker’s Spences Bridge Gold Project. The Remington package was staked based on upper level epithermal geochemical signatures identified in historic government and assessment data within the Cretaceous Bridge River group sedimentary and volcanic rocks. The Bridge River Formation is a 30-kilometer long by 10 kilometer wide under explored belt that Talisker believes to be prospective for Low-Sulphidation Epithermal Gold Systems. The Lola claim is a single 1670 Hectare claim in the Cadwallader Terrane. Talisker interprets identified Hg, Sb, Ag and Au geochemical signatures reported in historic government data to be indicative of low sulphidation gold systems.

Featured Project

Shasta & Baker Mines:

The Shasta Mine is located 9 km east from Sable’s processing and camp facilities. Production began in 1989 and has been operated by Sable intermittently until 2012 when the mine was put on care-and-maintenance. Historical production from the Shasta mine primarily occurred during the periods 1989-1991 (JM and D zones), and 2008-2012 (Creek zone). The mine production was processed at Sable’s Baker mill, commonly at rates of 200-250 ton/day, where gold and silver dore was produced for sale. There are two Production Leases, one at the Chappelle Property (P.L. No. 13, Lot 1048) and one at Shasta Mine (P.L. No. 48). Permitted tailings and waste facilities are used.

Featured Project

Tulox Project:

The Tulox Project is located in south-central British Columbia and consists of 18 contiguous mineral claims that encompass an area of 14,753.4 hectares. Mineralisation occurs along the contact of the intrusive and is interpreted to be of Intrusion Related type (IRGS). A robust soil anomaly defined by numerous multi-line, multi-station values above 80ppb is coincident with the contact of 2 felsic intrusive bodies, distinguished by differing Thorium-Potassium gamma ray spectrometer signatures.

Talisker’s B.C. Properties consist of several early to advanced stage projects. The Toodoggone projects include the past producing Baker Gold/Silver Project; the Shasta Mine and Baker mill infrastructure and equipment; the Chappelle (Baker and Multinational Mines) Property; the Mets Lease and the Bot Property. South-central B.C. projects include the Tulox Property, the WCGG Properties, and the Spences Bridge Regional Program. Expand the section below to read more about them.

Baker and Multinational Mines

The Baker Project is located in the Toodoggone region of the Omineca Mining Division, 430 km northwest of Prince George, British Columbia. The Baker Project is situated 35 km northwest of the former Kemess South open pit gold-copper mine and consists of 54 mineral claims, and two mining leases covering 6,601 hectares of land that encompass the past-producing Dupont-Baker ‘A’ and Multinational ‘B’ underground gold-silver mines and the past-producing Shasta open pit/underground gold-silver mine, and the Baker mill and tailings storage facility.

Chappelle (Baker and Multinational Mines) Property

The Chappelle ground covers the historically mined Dupont/Baker ‘A’ vein mine, and the Multinational ‘B’ vein mines. The Baker Mine (referred to as the Dupont/Baker ‘A’ deposit) was operated by Dupont Canada during the period 1981–1983 as an underground and open pit gold – silver mine. The Dupont operation included a 90 tons per day whole ore cyanidation plant using the Merrill-Crowe process. Historical production from the Dupont/Baker miner totalled 81,878 tonnes producing 1,283,973 grams (41,285 ounces) gold, 23,812,572 grams (765,677 ounces) silver and 13,076 kilograms copper. Sable acquired the Baker site including the processing facility in 1989 and subsequently modified it to a flotation circuit with optional concentrate cyanidation.

Mets Lease

The Mets Lease is located approximately 20 km north of the Baker and Multinational Mines. The mining lease covers 2 km2 and is subject to a 1% NSR which can be purchased at any time for Canadian $500,000. Historical work performed on the property dating back to the discovery of mineralization in the mid 1980’s consisted of 8,784m of diamond drilling, geological and geochemical surveys.

Bot Property

The Bot Property consists of 3,273 ha of mineral tenure in the Toodoggone district and is located approximately 35 km north of Sable’s Baker milling facilities in northern British Columbia. Previous work completed in 2004 and 2006 outlined significant mineralization on the property.

WCGG Properties

WCGG Properties consist of early stage exploration projects in southern and central British Columbia (Tulameen South, New Bluejay and Sauchi Creek Projects). The projects were staked directly by WCGG based upon ongoing review of the B.C. Minfile, ARIS, geological, geophysical and land tenure database. Each of the properties contains composite mineral occurrence and geochemical-geophysical anomalies that support potential for the properties to host exploitable mineral resources.
