Pistol Bay (TSX.V-PST) has executed an option agreement to acquire a 100% interest in additional zinc-copper claims located in the Red Lake, Ontario region. The Dixie 3 property is 640 ha, 45 km southeast of Red Lake and accessible by all-weather forestry access roads. The property is 8 km of the company’s Dixie 17, 18, 19 properties within the Confederation Lake greenstone belt.
From past exploration by Noranda, Tribute Minerals (now Aurcrest Resources) and Hudson Bay Exploration, a total of approximately 80 drill holes have been drilled on the property. The Dixie 3 property hosts the Dixie 3 VMS zone, which was estimated to contain 91,000 short tons grading 1% copper and 10% zinc (historical resource estimate – non-43-101 compliant).
Pistol Bay plans to compile the historical diamond drilling and geophysical survey data for the Dixie 3 property and, if possible, to re-acquire and re-evaluate the results of the 2008 Titan 24 survey. The company will consider additional deep-penetration surveys over the remainder of the property and drill testing of the new target areas as well as lateral and depth extensions of known mineralized zones.
