YUKON – Exploration at the Wolverine silver/zinc project has moved underground in preparation for completing a bankable feasibility study. The project is located in the Finlayson District and is 100%-owned by YUKON ZINC CORP. of Vancouver. Excavation of the portal has started, and the massive sulphide zone should be reached in 90 days. Meanwhile, definition drilling from surface continues with 25 drillholes completed as of May 4. Samples from the holes will contribute to the ongoing metallurgical test work.
Work to date has revealed that the Wolverine deposit has reserves of 3.47 million tonnes grading 12.43% Zn, 1.44% Pb, 1.37% Cu, 336.6 g/t Ag and 1.59 g/t Au. There are indicated resources of 4.94 million tonnes at 13.00% Zn, 1.58% Pb, 1.43% Cu, 379.4 g/t Ag and 1.76 g/t Au.
