Rogers Creek: The Rogers Creek Copper Gold Property is comprised of 8 contiguous mineral claims covering approximately 82.34 square kilometres. The Rogers Creek project is located within southwestern British Columbia and is being explored for porphyry and epithermal-style copper, gold, and molybdenum mineralization associated with intrusive activity that is part of the post-accretionary Tertiary age Cascade Magmatic Arc. Several very large porphyry and epithermal deposits occur within the Cascade Belt in neighbouring southeast Alaska and Washington State and in other similar aged magmatic belts around the world. This project has the potential to host large tonnage porphyry style mineralization.
Fire Mountain: The Fire Mountain Copper Gold Property is a large, 79.13 square kilometre, potential “Flagship” project with significant surface assay results, intensive veining, and impressive alteration, all indicating porphyry style mineralization. The Project is located approximately 13km south of the Rogers Creek Project within the Cascade Magmatic Arc. The receding snow and ice cover has exposed some very prospective geology that has yet to be explored. Cascade Copper will evaluate this emerging project as soon as possible.
Bendor: The Bendor Gold Project covers 30.63 square kilometres located within the Bridge River Gold Belt, a structural north-west trending corridor of highly productive Au-Quartz vein occurrences. The Bendor Project is situated just 22km southeast of the historic and past producing Bralorne and Pioneer Mines where ~4.5 million ounces of gold was produced. Historic work at Bendor included drilling and underground development at the Bristol West and Bristol Main Shear zones. The Bendor Project has the potential to host one or more high grade quartz vein related gold deposits.
The Qualified Person responsible for the technical content of this press release is Shannon Baird, P.Geo, Vice President Exploration of Cascade Copper Corp.
