VANCOUVER, BC, November 9, 2022 –Geologica Resource Corp. (CSE:GRCM) (“Geologica” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce the successful completion of its fall soil sampling collection.
The fall 2022 soil geochemistry survey* expanded on the fall 2020 survey. 176 additional samples were collected for analysis. The fall 2022 survey extends the 2020 survey to cover the rest of the magnetic high from the historical airborne magnetic survey, the intrusive bedrock identified in percussion LLRC-13-007 drilled by Riverside, and a new VMS target.
During a past drilling program Riverside Resources Inc. (“Riverside”) drilled 3 percussion holes to test the top of bedrock (ie. 2-3m beneath the till) within the current claims. LLRC-13-001 intersected maroon xlithictuff at 24m depth. LLRC-13-007 intersected pink intrusive rock at 19.5m depth. LLRC-13-008 assayed 200-300 ppm Cu in volcanics at 36m depth. These values are similar to percussion top of bedrock holes drilled in the same program at the Lennac Lake copper porphyry deposit 6 km west.
The fall 2020 soil geochemistry survey* consisting of 305 soil samples, identified a potential kilometre scale VMS target area located in the southwest section of the sample grid plus highlighted 6 additional high priority target areas for further exploration. Occurring within the center of the potential VMS target area are two overlapping kilometer scale high priority target areas. This geochemistry is suggestive of a target area reflecting a VMS-type deposit that potentially contains significant mineralization*. This thesis is supported by the historical airborne magnetic survey, which shows the VMS target occurs within a magnetic high which is likely due to the Takla volcanics.
2018 MMI survey identified 2 copper anomalies correlated with gold anomalies.
Geologica’s Topley Property
The Topley property is located in central British Columbia near Babine Lake and is road accessible with hydro power lines running through the property making the property very cost effective to explore and reducing the operations carbon footprint. The region near Babine Lake is known for its large porphyry, copper/gold, and copper/molybdenum deposits including past producing copper mines, Granisle and Bell. Porphyries contain the largest reserves of Cu and close to 50% of Au reserves in BC. The Topley Property consists of 7 mineral claims totaling 2,669 Ha with known prospects and showings.
Other VMS deposits occur within the area including Topley-Richfield-10 kilometres north of Topley, the Red prospect, 5 kilometres northeast of the dormant Granisle Mine, and the Fireweed silver-lead-zinc prospect, 12 kilometres west of the dormant Bell Copper mine. One of the best examples of a VMS deposit is the Eskay Creek Mine which is a world class gold-silver-copper-lead-zinc deposit occurring within Hazelton Group rocks which also occur on the Topley Property. Both the identified exploration targets in the south of the sample grid are open to the south. Additional mineral potential in the area has been ranked extremely high, as the Babine Lake area is the fourth most prospective in the entire Skeena- Nass mineral potential project area (MacIntyre et al. 1995). A rock sample from the Topley Property yielded 6.84 grams/ton Gold (Carter, 1992). The accuracy of the technical content of this overview has been reviewed by John Buckle P.Geo., who is a Qualified Person as defined under NI 43-101, and a member of the Company’s board of directors.
