The company said that extensive surveys completed this year have confirmed a number of high potential porphyry gold-copper deposit targets for aggressive drill testing in 2019.
Amarc Resources (TSXV:AHR) has announced results from its first season of exploration activity at the expanded JOY Project in British Columbia.
The company said that extensive airborne and ground exploration surveys completed this year over the new JOY Project mineral tenures, acquired in 2017, have confirmed a number of new, high potential porphyry gold-copper deposit targets for aggressive drill testing in 2019.
As quoted in the press release:
Exploration targets identified for assessment in 2018 occur largely along, and proximal to, the 20 km long by 4 km wide Finley magnetic corridor that trends northeast across the JOY property and hosts the PINE and TREE porphyry gold-copper deposits. This year’s fieldwork -which included 1,356 line-km of airborne magnetic and 63 line-km of ground induced polarization (IP) geophysics surveys, collection of 2,676 soil geochemical samples, 98 km2 of detailed geological mapping and the drilling of two core holes totalling 946 m – has significantly advanced the project.
