Exploring - North Zamboanga Projects
The North Zamboanga tenements consist of 11 permit applications covering 1,240 square kilometres (771 square miles) of the Zamboanga Peninsula on the island of Mindanao in the Philippines. The properties are all wholly-owned by our affiliates.
The current permit applications cover a number of mineral targets identified by a prior exploration program conducted by a major international company, numbering over 20 epithermal gold, massive sulphide and porphyry copper-gold prospects. Reconnaissance work carried out to date has supported historical findings and has resulted in the discovery of additional prospects of interest. Indications of mineralization often occur on the surface and have been easily accessible to our exploration teams.
Among the more prominent prospects in the North Zamboanga tenement package is the Bonbon area, which is covered by an 81 square kilometre (50 square mile) Exploration Permit Application. Bonbon is made up of a series of north-northwest trending quartz veinlets/stockworks in highly altered volcanics and intrusives, spread over a 10 kilometre (6 mile) long by 2 kilometre (1 mile) wide area. Geologic mapping and sampling as well as geophysical surveys are in the planning stages in order to locate prospective drill targets.
We continue to welcome, seek out and advance opportunities that may
present beneficial relationships to advance exploration across our
Philippine land package.
