VANCOUVER, BC / ACCESSWIRE / July 26, 2023 / Ximen Mining Corp. (TSX.v:XIM)(FRA:1XMA)(OTCQB:XXMMF) (the "Company" or "Ximen") announces that it is initiated a drill program at its Wild Horse Gold project near Cranbrook in southeastern BC.
The Wild Horse project covers source areas for the famous historic Wild Horse River placer gold deposit near Fort Steele and Cranbrook, in southeastern B.C. Bedrock gold was first discovered in this area as early as 1895 but an economic deposit has yet to be defined. Gold-bearing quartz veins and breccias were drilled in 2016 and 2021, on Ximen's Lone 4 claim, where there is potential for a bulk-minable gold deposit.
This year, Ximen will drill test an area to the northeast on its Boulder Claim, where a 700 x 300 meter gold in soil anomaly was previously identified (BC Assessment report 30952).
The drill will also test beneath an area of abundant boulders of syenite observed on the soil grid. In 2009 it was reported that four boulders of this syenite float were sampled, of which "three were anomalous in gold and one ran 4.1 grams of gold per ton" (Assessment report 34920). The syenite is believed to be part of the mid-Cretaceous felsic intrusive Bayonne plutonic suite that is spatially and possibly genetically related to gold mineralization in the Kimberley Gold Trend.
The area is transected by the Boulder Creek fault, a regional high-angle reverse fault that dips 60° to 65° to the northwest and is interpreted as an eastward continuation of the St. Mary fault (BC Geology Survey Bulletin 84). These faults are dominant structures associated with gold deposits in the Kimberley Gold Trend (Geoscience BC Map: 2015-13-01). The St. Mary-Boulder Creek structure is a major transverse fault system that is interpreted as a surface expression the Vulcan Low, a fundamental Precambrian basement transverse structure (McMechan, 2012; Canadian Journal of Earth Sciences, 2012 Vol. 49, p693). This provides a most favourable lithospheric architecture for controlling the location of gold deposits in terms of mineral systems modeling.
