Lynx Gold
Gold, Silver

The Lynx Gold Property covers 2,200 acres and is located approximately 75 miles southeast of Vernon, BC. The property consists of the Kismet, Mountain View, Iron Ball, Snowdrop and Dewdrop claims.

The known gold-bearing veins are fissure type, and have been observed to also contain molybdenite. According to BC MINFILE 082LSE055 and BC Assessment Report 10530, bulldozer trenching was conducted in 1980, and in 1981 a $216,000 drill program completed 8 diamond drillholes totalling 1608 metres. A chip sample from the face of the Kismet vein assayed 35.65 grams (1.15 ounces) per tonne gold and 2.06 grams per tonne silver. On the Dewdrop, west of the Iron Ball, opencuts have uncovered north-striking quartz fissure veins containing similar minerals in granite. Several cuts to the east of the Kismet tunnel have uncovered other fissure veins in the granite.

BC Assessment Report 10530 also documents that a new vein was discovered near drill hole H-7-81 hosting gold, pyrite and molybdenum. This vein assayed 5.83 grams per tonne gold and 55.19 grams per tonne silver from a selected surface grab sample. In a drill intersection the vein assayed 3.77 grams per tonne gold over 0.6 metres The best intersection was from hole H-4-81, about 80 metres north-northeast of the Kismet adit. The sample assayed 28.52 grams (0.92 ounces) per tonne gold, 13.4 grams per tonne silver and 0.01 per cent copper across 1.07 metres. This hole probably intersected the extension of the Kismet vein. The report concludes that the property shows potential for economic lengths and widths of gold mineralization in a favorable geological environment, and that the gold bearing veins warranted further diamond drill testing.
