Flow Metals (CSE: FWM) is launching a new program at the New Brenda project 25 km from West Kelowna, B.C. The project has a 60 km2 land package with both vein gold and copper porphyry targets at surface
The new work will include 500 samples from the porphyry target identified in 2022. The target already sampled 0.67% copper and 46 g/t silver. Sampling will take place within the 2 -km-diameter magnetite destruction ring, identified as the Xenolith porphyry (XP).
The XP target is the most prospective of the four porphyry-style magnetic anomalies first identified with the 2021 airborne program. XP is near the contacts of the Pennask and Osprey Lake batholiths which are directly related to the porphyry mineralization at both the Brenda copper mine and the Elk gold mine.
Trenching by Flow Metals in 2019 yielded 4.0 metres at 4 g/t gold with 1.0 metre at 15.4 g/t gold. Gold is hosted in a narrow gossanous vein that is on trend with several other trenches and surface occurrences that indicate the vein continues for several hundred metres.
"The early season program at New Brenda will provide the first detailed ground program at XP with a large soil sample grid. Using the airborne magnetic and radiometric survey we have established a large 2.0-km target area within the destruction ring. This area of the project has seen very limited historical exploration and has potential to define a sizeable porphyry target in an established copper porphyry district," said Scott Sheldon, CEO of Flow Metals.
