Vancouver, B.C. Canada, July 16, 2020; Belmont Resources Inc (TSX.V: BEA; Frankfurt: L3L2) (“Belmont”), (or the “Company”)
Belmont President & CEO George Sookochoff, recently completed an onsite inspection of the recently acquired Athelstan-Jackpot (A-J) and Come By Chance (CBC) properties. These strategic gold-copper properties are situated in the prolific Phoenix /Greenwood mining camp of southern British Columbia, and in which Belmont has become a serious player in this very active area.
George commented “I would like to thank Jesse Ritco, son of former CBC owner Ron Ritco, and his son Milo for taking me up onto the CBC property and showing me
numerous undocumented former workings comprised of pits, tunnels and adits. I was very excited in seeing more and more showings throughout the property, particularly along NW trending fault zones, as it appears to be evidence of a potential large system beneath. Each of these areas shows strong mineralization and with modern exploration techniques we hope to discover potential gold-copper deposits beneath.”
Belmont plans to have a geologist on the property shortly to begin mapping, sampling and documenting all the workings and showings on the property.
While in Grand Forks, B.C. Mr. Sookochoff had the opportunity to meet with local resident and prominent geologist Ms. Linda Caron, M.Sc., P.Eng. Ms. Caron has agreed to provide her services along with her vast knowledge of the area as a consulting geologist for Belmont. Linda has over 30 years of national and international experience in the mining industry. Since 1997, she has worked as a geological consultant on multiple projects for junior mining companies, small-scale producers and majors. Most recently, Linda has acted as Project Manager for several large mineral exploration projects in southern B.C., with a primary focus on gold, including Kinross Gold Corp’s Grizzly Greenwood project and Ximen Mining Corp’s Brett Gold project.
She has worked extensively in the Boundary district of southern B.C. and northern Washington and is widely recognized for her knowledge of the geology and deposits in the area. Ms. Caron graduated from the University of British Columbia in 1985 with an honors degree in geological engineering and obtained a master’s degree in geological sciences from the University of Calgary in 1988.
George commented “I am thrilled to have Linda coming on, and working with our Belmont team. Linda was the consulting geologist for the former private owners of the A-J property and wrote several 43-101 reports on the property. With her firsthand knowledge of the A-J property I couldn’t have found a better geologist to take on the project and unlock its tremendous potential.”
Ms. Caron will be overseeing the permitting application process along with the planned IP survey to be followed by a drill program.
