About Xplore Resources (TSX-V: XPLR)
Xplore Resources is a Toronto based mining exploration company listed on the TSX Venture Exchange under symbol XPLR, focused on the acquisition and development of copper and gold projects in the Americas. The Company is led by a highly experienced management team and is comprised of industry experts with executive and senior management experience in geology, banking, private equity, investor relations and law.
The Company’s 1,614 Ha. Valk Project is an early stage exploration property located in the Nanaimo Mining Division, British Columbia, approximately 20 Km NW of Port Hardy. The Project is road accessible via an extensive network of provincial highways, local roads, and logging roads. Historical surface soil geochemistry and rock sampling has identified anomalous copper, vanadium and gold mineralization within rocks of the Karmutsen Formation, a thick sequence of dominantly basaltic volcanic rocks stratigraphically between the Buttle Lake – Sicker Group rocks hosting the volcanogenic massive sulphide deposits at Myra Falls and rocks of the Bonanza Group / Island Volcanic Suite, that are closely associated with known copper gold porphyry discoveries. The anomalous mineralization defines a northeast trend over an estimated 4.0 km strike length. This trend, interpreted to be a regional scale fault system, can be traced to the past producing Island Copper Mine (345 Mt @ 0.41% Cu), located 25 kms. to the southeast. The North Island Copper and Gold Project (Indicated resource of 305 Mt @ 0.21% Cu) lies 25 kms. to the southwest.
