On the Path to New Gold-Copper Discoveries
in the Prolific Greenwood Mining Camp
Belmont Resources is engaged in the business of acquiring past producing gold-copper mines located in the highly prospective Greenwood-Republic mining camps.
Belmont is utilizing new exploration technology as well as new geological modelling to identify gold-copper mineralized feeder systems to the relatively shallow historic mines
3DIP Survey Identifies Strong Coincident Chargeability-Resistivity Anomaly Only 130m Beneath Athelstan and Jackpot Gold Mines
3DIP Over Listwanite Zone
Known gold mineralization on the property is primarily hosted within listwanite. Listwanite is directly associated with several multi-million ounce gold deposits in Atlin, Bralorne and Barkerville districts of British Columbia as well as the Motherlode Gold District in California.
An important 1 km long by 200 m wide zone of listwanite, which hosts all of the known zones of gold mineralization on the property, is defined by a strong resistivity anomaly. The resistivity high anomaly is interpreted as representing silica altered rock which includes quartz veining and listwanite
On surface, disseminated sulfides occur within dykes and tongues of altered porphyritic intrusive that both cut and underlie the north-dipping band of listwanite. The large chargeability anomaly may reflect disseminated massive sulphides within a large intrusive body and could be the causative source of mineralization at surface.
IP Anomaly Drill Target
Coincident and relatively high anomalous values of both resistivity and chargeability measuring 800 x 700 m and lies approximately 130m below the A-J mineralized trend and Athelstan and Jackpot mines appear to be related to favourable geological conditions making it a very compelling drill target for an upcoming drill program.

Listwanite-Associated Lode Gold Mineralization of the Motherlode Type
2 past producing gold mines (7,000 oz Au & 9,000 oz Ag) associated with Listwanite, a key ultramafic rock alteration directly associated with several multi-million ounce gold deposits in British Columbia, Atlin, Bralorne and Barkerville as well as the Motherlode District in California.
IP survey completed and awaiting results to deliniate drill targets.

Step #1 – Acquire a past producing mine in an excellent location – completed
Step #2 – Apply new geological modelling – completed
Step #3 – Use Drone Mag & 3DIP to look deeper for source of mineralization – completed
Belmont’s detailed, low-level magnetic survey of the CBC property has provided a greater indication of the volcanic caldera that was initially indicated by the recently completed Lidar survey.
