Low Cost Exploration in Premiere Mining Jurisdictions
Searchlight Resources Inc. (TSXV:SCLT) is a resource exploration company with a growing portfolio of high-quality, advanced-stage exploration projects close to existing infrastructure in premiere North American jurisdictions. The company’s flagship property is the Bootleg Lake gold and VMS base metal project located in Saskatchewan. The province was ranked as the third best mining jurisdiction in the world and best in Canada by the Fraser Institute in 2019. Bootleg Lake is five kilometers from Flin Flon, Manitoba—home to Hudbay’s 777 underground copper-zinc-gold-silver mine which lies along the prolific Flin Flon-Snow Lake belt. With the closure of the 777 mine slated for 2021, Hudbay is exploring the region for more ore feed to supply its Flin Flon mill complex.
Searchlight’s diverse metals portfolio includes several other Saskatchewan-based projects including properties that are highly prospective for gold, cobalt, vanadium, rare element pegmatites and VMS-style base metals. In 2019, the company plans to evaluate 340,000 hectares of claims for which it has right of first refusal with focus on VMS base metal targets. Searchlight intends to trace a boulder train on the recently acquired Duddridge Lake project to determine the source of cobalt and vanadium on the property.
In May 2019, Searchlight Resources optioned the New York Canyon copper project in Nevada to Emgold Mining Corp. (TSXV:EMR), for C$350,000 in cash and C$500,000 in Emgold shares.
