Pinnacle Gold
Gold, Silver, Copper

Pinnacle Gold is located near the headwaters of Pilldolla Creek, approximately 125 km northwest of Vancouver, BC. The property consists of 3 claim units covering 426.7 hectares (1,054 acres).

The highest values obtained to date from various grab samples have assayed 20.3 grams (0.65 ounces) per tonne gold, 548.4 grams (17.63 ounces) per tonne silver, 10.25 percent lead, and 2.15 percent copper. The mineralized area occurs within a one kilometre wide roof pendant of Gambier interbedded sediments and volcanics bounded to the west and east by Coast Complex intrusive similar to the nearby Britannia Mine, which produced over 52 million tonnes of ore while in operation.

A prominent west-northwest trending, moderately dipping shear extends for over 1000 metres on the east side of the headwaters of Pilldolla Creek. This shear crosscuts both Gambier Group rocks and Coast Plutonic Complex rocks and lies uphill to the north from a train of numerous subangular to subrounded mineralized boulders. The boulders commonly contain fine to coarse grained pyrite with disseminations and blebs of chalcopyrite. Less commonly galena, pyrrhotite and sphalerite occur.

The shear separates an expansive limestone-marble-siliceous metavolcanic assemblage to the north from strongly gossanous quartz mica schists/siliceous metavolcanics in the Cliff Area. Several hundred metres to the east, the structure passes from Gambier Group rocks into Coast Plutonic Complex rocks at the Cave zone.
