Strategic Metals (TSX-V:SMD) (“Strategic”) is pleased to announce new discoveries and other highlights from 2017 exploration programs it conducted on 11 of its 115 wholly owned Yukon properties. The most noteworthy results are summarized below:
Sawbuck is a brand new silver prospect located midway between the former Brewery Creek Mine and the Keno Hill Mining District, within the Tombstone Gold Belt.
Four soil samples collected at 50 m intervals on a reconnaissance contour line averaged a remarkable 301 g/t silver with a peak of 662 g/t. Follow-up rock sampling returned 105 to 3,160 g/t silver. Cursory geological mapping suggests the mineralization has structural and stratigraphic controls.
