EnGold takes new approach at Lac La Hache in BC

EnGold Mines’ (TSXV: EGM) wholly-owned Lac La Hache copper-gold-silver project in the southern Cariboo region of central B.C. has a storied history tracing back several decades.

The property, 14 km northeast of Lac La Hache and 480 km from Vancouver, lies within the Quesnel Trough, a 2,000-km-long depositional belt that hosts several large-tonnage porphyry-type deposits. Imperial Metals’ (TSX: III) Mt. Polley mine and Taseko Mines‘ (TSX: TKO; NYSE: TGB) Gibraltar mine are located 90 km north of Lac La Hache, while New Gold’s (TSX: NGD) New Afton mine is 170 km south.

EnGold’s 258-sq.-km project hosts multiple mineralized zones within a sizeable alkalic porphyry system along a 10-km prospective trend. These include the recently discovered Copper Skarn zone; the gold-rich Aurizon gold-copper-silver zone; the Spout magnetite-copper deposit; the Berkey porphyry prospect; and numerous other mineral occurrences.

The deposits are part of the Spout Lake copper-gold district, a group of porphyry and skarn deposits containing pyrite, chalcopyrite, magnetite, traces of bornite, and native copper and tetrahedrite in veinlets and stockworks.
