HWY 37 Project

The HWY 37 Project covers 36,200 ha; Kingfisher Metals has signed option agreements to earn 100% of the project over 4 years

In March 2023, Kingfisher Metals signed two definitive option agreements to consolidate the 362 km2 copper-gold project. HWY 37 consists of two properties – previously known as Ball Creek East and Hank – with two four-year options to earn a 100% interest in each property.

HWY 37 covers a broad area of porphyry Cu-Au and epithermal Au-Ag mineralization and alteration, with the same mineralization age and scale of alteration as the Treaty Creek-KSM-Brucejack district.* The project includes three open deposits: the Mary Cu-Au porphyry, the Williams Cu-Au porphyry, and the Hank Au-Ag epithermal vein system. Deeper level porphyry targets are common to the east and in lower elevations including the early-stage Cliff, ME and DM areas. Higher elevations and western regions of the project are host to a trend of Au+/-Cu systems from south to north: Rojo Grande, Hank, Valley, Ridge, and Rainbow.

* Mineralization hosted on adjacent and/or nearby properties is not necessarily indicative of mineralization hosted on the Company’s property

About HWY 37

Location & Infrastructure

The 362 km2 HWY 37 project is in Northwest British Columbia’s Golden Triangle, Liard Mining Division. The property is approximately 140 km north of the town of Stewart and 75 km southwest of the village of Iskut. Port facilities are available at Stewart and Prince Rupert (330 kilometres south), accessible via highways.

Both the Stewart-Cassiar Highway (37) and the 287 kV Northwest Transmission Line pass through the eastern portion of the HWY 37 project. The main areas of interest are within 9-15 km of Highway 37 and power.

Helicopter staging is available at the Burrage airstrip 4 km to the east, on Highway 37. The project is within the traditional territory of the Tahltan First Nation, with a communications agreement in place.
