Vancouver, BC – Coast Copper Corp. (“Coast Copper” or the “Company”; TSX-V: COCO) is pleased to announce that it has staked the Sully mineral claims (“Sully” or the “Property”) adjacent to PJX Resources Inc.’s (“PJX”) recent massive sulphide zinc, lead and silver discoveries located approximately 35 kilometers (“km”) east of the past producing Sullivan Mine (which was in operation from 1900 to 2001) near Kimberley BC.
The Sully property is comprised of 3 mineral claims covering 5,134.52 ha and located adjacent to PJX (see Figure 1) where it announced that it recently discovered significant zinc and lead mineralization in outcrops that further supports the potential to discover a Sullivan type mineral occurrence on the PJX property¹. The Sully property covers ground that hosts the strike extension to the north of the favourable Aldridge Formation, cross structures to the northeast and additional ground to the east of the PJX discovery. Historical regional geochemical surveys (“RGS”)² on the Sully property have returned anomalous results of silver and lead in-stream sediments³ which warrant further investigation as well as follow up on the 1999 discovery of tetrahedrite (silver mineral) in brecciated limestone at the Red Zone and unexplained lead, zinc, silver and gold anomalies in soils to the north. Rock grab sample 125679 taken in 1999 by Mr. Travis returned 1.675 grams per tonne (“g/t”) gold, 228 g/t silver, 3.83% copper, 3,010 parts per million (“ppm”) lead and 4,270 ppm zinc⁴ and attest to exploration potential of the area within 10 km of the new PJX Discovery.
Adam Travis, CEO of Coast Copper comments: “Although we remain focused on our flagship Empire Mine property and continue to expand our understanding of the past producing Benson Lake and Merry Widow Mines as well as prepare for future drill programs, this opportunity to acquire ground adjacent to the newly discovered Sullivan style mineralization by PJX Resources was too good to pass up, especially considering the only cost to the Company was staking fees. I previously worked in the area in 1999 under the Prospectors Assistance Program and made new silver, gold, lead and zinc discoveries and we are excited to get back to the region and follow up some of my previous anomalies in the context of these new discoveries by PJX."
