The Placer Mountain Property is a unique grassroots gold-silver exploration property located 15km south of HudBay Minerals Copper Mountain Mine* in Southern BC.  The Property was first drilled in 2020 by Damara Gold Corp, with the first hole intersecting 1m of 48.6 g/t Au & 30.8 g/t Ag in the Main Zone only 15 meters from surface.  Following up on the success of the inaugural drilling program prospecting, soil sampling, and trenching discovered the Kodiak Zone.  The Kodiak Zone was first drilled in 2021 with intercepts of up to 3m of 39.2 g/t Au & 80.4 g/t Ag only 27 meters from surface.  During the 2021 drilling program a devastating once in 100-year storm occurred, caused by atmospheric rivers, severely limiting the ability to carry out the planned drill program.  In total only 2,428m of drilling has been completed on the Property, barely scratching the surface.  Both the Kodiak and Main Zones are unique opportunities that remain open and there are numerous prospecting and soil anomalies that remain to be tested.  We are very excited to follow up on both underexplored Kodiak and Main Zones.” stated Corbin Stewart.
