Western Star Gold Project
- The Western Star Property is located 50 kilometers southeast of Revelstoke, British Columbia.
- The Property encompasses 2,797.7 hectares and contains 12 Minfile showings as well as several areas of historic mining.
- The Property is located 140km southeast of Margaux Resources’ Sheep Creek gold project and 90km from the J&L Deposit.
- The Trout Lake Mining District forms the known terminus of an arcuate belt of complexly folded sedimentary and volcanic rocks which extends from northern Idaho to Revelstoke in southeastern British Columbia.
- Mineralized zones on the property are intensely deformed, stratiform type deposits consisting of siderite and quartz mineralized with pyrite, galena, and sphalerite typically localized along steeply dipping, limestone chlorite schist contacts.
- Samples of irregular, fracture-controlled mineralization associated with these zones returned grades of between 0.2 and 2.5 oz/ton gold; 200 to 500 oz/ton silver, with combined base metal contents of between 10 and 30%. The mineralized zone has been traced for 6.2 kilometers. (Consolidated Trout Lake Mines, 1990).

Left – The photo to the left illustrates high-grade silver-copper- lead – gold mineralization recently exposed by a receding glacier. 137 g/t Ag, 36.6% Pb, 32 ppb Au. In Wide West Area.
Right – Middle image 2.75 g/t Au, 7.2 g/t Ag, 2340 ppm Pb. In Goodenough Area.
The limestone unit within the Index Formation exposure in the opposing slope is evident by recessive weathering and colour. The dark gossaned iron gravel running through the center of the picture marks the location of the limestone replacement hosting pods and stringers of galena and sphalerite mineralization. Orange veins next to the gossan are ankerite alteration of carbonate veins within the limestone. This is one section of a 6.2 km mineralized trend.
