The Akie zinc-lead property is situated within the southern-most part (Kechika Trough) of the regionally extensive Paleozoic Selwyn Basin, one of the most prolific sedimentary basins in the world for the occurrence of SEDEX
zinc-lead-silver and stratiform barite deposits.
Cumbrian Seafoods asked its suppliers to sign up to SEDEX
and is delighted with the response their request received.
The area has been intermittently worked for SEDEX
style silver-lead-zinc mineralization by various companies since the early 1980's; including 3,808 meters of historic diamond drilling, geologic mapping, soil sampling, and geophysical surveys.
The Sully Property comprises rocks of similar age and origin to those which host the Sullivan mine, one of the largest SEDEX
deposits in the world and located 27km to the west in Kimberley, BC.
The 2006 exploration program demonstrated the expansion potential of the world-class Selwyn Project with five new discovery zones of SEDEX
type zinc-lead mineralization.
The Gravitas team has decades of experience with Sullivan-type SEDEX
deposits and related exploration.
The Akie property is the Company's flagship exploration project and is host to the Cardiac Creek SEDEX
These claims are situated in the emerging world class Gataga-Akie SEDEX
zinc/lead/silver camp in the Omineca mining district of British Columbia, northeast of Williston Lake.
The objective is to develop additional SEDEX
and gold drill targets.
To the northwest, the Sullivan horizon (LMC) will be tested for SEDEX
mineralization within a group of upper elevated Pb, Zn, and As soil anomalies.
