Athelstan-Jackpot Mines – Gold
Athelstan & Jackpot Mines
- Total production 1901-1940: 38,665 producing approximately 6,979 ounces gold and 8,234 ounces silver (Minfile 082ESE047).
- Extensive amount of trenches, pits, adits and mine dumps throughout property.
1986 Trench and Dump Sampling Highlights
Note: 1986 rock sampling was conducted by Mr. David Jaworski and preparation and geochemical analysis were undertaken by Acme Analytical Laboratories at their 1020 Cordova St. East Vancouver facility.
All 1986 rock samples were analyzed for gold (AU-AA23) and 35 elements by ICP- AES using an aqua regia digestion (ME-ICP41). Reported in 1989 Report on Athelstan-Jackpot Property, Authored by J.J. McDougall, P.Eng.

Along with the numerous mineralized pits the property contains extensive mine dumps that appear to contain further mineralization. In a 2001 Summary Report on the A-J Group prepared by R.E. Miller, B.Eng.Sci.,P.Geo Mr. Miller stated “the identification of one to two areas of material having dimensions of 2.0 metres thick, 15 metres in width and 90 metres in length with an average grade of 0.3 opt gold.”

Airborne Imagery Survey
A property wide low level, high-resolution imagery airborne survey is being planned for the first week of July. The survey will provide very-fine resolution elevation and photographic data that will be very useful for accurately locating and detail mapping workings, showings and rock exposures over the entire property.
The Company is making preparations for a 100m line space IP survey over the mineralized zones. IP highlights electrically chargeable rock including those containing significant sulphides which the property contains and shows to be associated with mineralization.
The close line spaced IP survey will provide a highly detailed 3D geophysical model beneath the surface mineralization to a depth of approximately 300m which will important for identifying further drill targets.
Multiple drill targets have been selected from surface exploration data and the results of the IP survey will help qualify the targets and identify possible deep seated vertical open space pathways for mineralized bearing hydrothermal solutions.
Company is preparing permitting application of a 5-year 10-site drilling program and potentially envisions conducting first pass drilling on one or more targets before the end of the 2020 field season.
