Aurwest Resources Corporation announced the commencement of its 2021 exploration program on its Stellar porphyry copper/gold project (22,342 ha), located approximately 25 km southwest of Houston, British Columbia. Porphyry Copper Target: A summary of the historical rock sampling and exploration data was set out in a news release dated March 22, 2021. The 2021 program will focus on a five km long area located in the northeast portion of the project that hosts two porphyry copper targets. Detailed mapping of the lithologies, mineralogy, style of mineralization, associated alteration patterns and extent of the copper mineralization will be completed and incorporated into Aurwest's exploration model. This work will be followed by a 25km, Induced Polarization (chargeability/resistivity) survey to map the chargeability and resistivity signature of the five km long target and the two zone of porphyry style mineralization. Regional Exploration: The western, central, and southern portions of the project are essentially unexplored. The 2018 airborne magnetic survey identified several signatures within these areas that exhibit a correlation with intrusives of the Bulkley intrusive suite, the main host for porphyry copper deposits in central BC. Stream sediment and soil sampling, mapping and prospecting are planned with emphasis on the area surrounding the Bulkley intrusives. Contingent on geochemical results, and time of year, more detailed mapping and prospecting of anomalous areas is contemplated. Interpretation: The geology and mineralization at the Huckleberry porphyry copper deposit forms the exploration model for the Steller project. The Huckleberry deposit lies within a strong positive magnetic signature due to magnetite alteration of the host rocks surrounding an intrusive stock/plug. The two areas of copper-molybdenum-gold-silver mineralization located in the northeast portion of the property are located within a strong positive magnetic signature. This magnetic signature is most likely attributed to the hornfelsing and or skarnification of the volcanic host rock attributed to intrusive stocks and dikes that have been mapped within both areas. While ground truthing of the historical data is required, the metal assemblage, intrusive activity and reported styles of mineralization all support a porphyry copper exploration model.
