Nitinat Minerals (TSXV:NZZ) has announced that the work on its Jasper Property in west-central Vancouver Island is underway.
The property consists of nine contiguous claims which cover 3978 hectares.
As quoted in the press release:
The Jasper main grid area is underlain by apparently conformable lithological horizons including an eastern felsic volcanic (dacite or rhyodacite) horizon and a western mafic volcanic (basalt) horizon separated by a central intermediate volcanic horizon. Lithological contacts strike N-S and are offset by cross faults which strike NW-SE. Fifteen polymetallic sulfide zones have been discovered in outcrop over a 2.75 km. strike length within the main grid area. Select outcrop sampling of these zones has yielded values up to 20 percent lead, 25 percent zinc, 15 percent copper, 61 grams per tonne of silver and 0.21 g/t gold from separate samples taken from different zones. A 2.25 km length by 0.5 km wide polymetallic soil geochemistry anomaly is coincident with the area of polymetallic zones, and roughly coincident with the central intermediate volcanic horizon.
