Granite Creek Copper Identifies New, High-Priority Resource Expansion Targets at Carmacks Copper-Gold-Silver Project in Yukon Canada

VANCOUVER, BC / ACCESSWIRE / November 21, 2022 / Granite Creek Copper Ltd. (TSXV:GCX | OTCQB:GCXXF) (“Granite Creek” or the “Company“) is pleased to announce results from an Induced Polarization (“IP”) survey conducted on the Company’s 100%-owned Carmacks copper-gold-silver project (“Carmacks” or the “Deposit”) in the Minto Copper District of central Yukon, Canada. The large, highly prospective, potential resource expansion targets identified adjacent to or near the proposed open pits warrant follow-up exploration in upcoming campaigns. The Company further announces it has closed the second and final tranche of the private placement financing described in a news release dated October 5, 2022.

President & CEO, Tim Johnson, stated, “These multiple new zones and targets adjacent to the conceptual open pits, as defined by the March NI 43-101 Mineral Resource Estimate update, further highlight the prospectivity of our Carmacks project. Our team continues to do excellent work at Carmacks and we are confident in our ability to expand known mineralization and make new discoveries in the lesser explored parts of the 176km2 project. The current focus is the completion of the upcoming PEA and we look forward to reporting on the robust economics of the Carmacks project in the near term.”

Survey Overview

The first survey line (Line 1100S) was conducted over Zone 147 to investigate the correlation between known copper sulphide mineralization and the chargeability response from the Simcoe Geophysics deep-penetrating IP survey (see Figure 2 below). Subsequent survey lines were conducted over near-deposit target areas.

The results of the survey were enhanced by Resistivity Scaled Chargeability (“RSC”). RSC is a ratio of chargeability to resistivity (electrical properties measured by the IP survey) with the applied ratio determined by comparing various ratios to known mineralized bodies. The well-defined Zone 147 was used as a model to determine the RSC ratio that best fit the known mineralization. (See Figure 4 below).

Select Results

Line 1100S, surveyed over defined sulfide copper mineralization in Zone 147, established a model for the RSC response and identified a new zone ~920 meters to the west. This new zone, named the Sourtoe Zone, extends 200m south to Line 1300S. This zone has been investigated with soil samples and trenching, exposing visually mineralized material close to surface (results pending). The soils and trenching were designed to evaluate the geochemical and geological signatures of this near-surface IP response and their similarities to known mineralized zones.

Line 1300S shows a potential continuation of the Sourtoe Zone, giving the zone a minimum of 200m strike length as well as a new, deeper target, the 147 Deep Target, several hundred meters below the proposed 147 pit.

Line 1500S, designed to test the gap area between zones 2000 and 147 (the “Gap Zone”), was successful in identifying a significant anomaly that is offset to the west from both zones. 3D modeling of historic drilling shows that this target has not been drill tested and could represent a southern extension of the 147 zone. The Gap Zone Target is a top candidate for additional near-deposit exploration (See figure 4). Additionally, a new, deeper target area that appears on this line and extends to line 1700S has been identified as the 58 Target.

Line 1700S, located 200m south of Line 1500S, shows the probable Gap Zone Target continuing southwards towards Zone 2000 as well as the newly identified 58 Target. Additionally, a shallow anomaly east of the proposed pit is identified as a possible continuation of Zone 4 proximal to the 147 pit.

Line 3300S, the southern most line completed in this survey highlights the potentiality of the area underneath the proposed 1213 pit. Additionally, an anomaly on the western portion of the line has been identified as 1213 west target for further follow up. With the current pit design bottoming out at 180 meters there remains significant room to grow the resource in this area. Additional lines on 200m spacing over the 1213 area are planned for subsequent geophysical campaigns to further define the zone.

Granite Creek Copper Retains SGS Canada for Updated Preliminary Economic Assessment on High-Grade Carmacks Copper-Gold-Silver Project in Yukon Canada

VANCOUVER, BC / ACCESSWIRE / May 3, 2022 / Granite Creek Copper Ltd. (TSXV:GCX)(OTCQB:GCXXF) (“Granite Creek” or the “Company“) is pleased to announce that it has retained SGS to complete an updated Preliminary Economic Assessment (“PEA”) on the Carmacks project. The PEA will use the 2022 Resource Estimate (Table 1), consisting of 36.2 million tonnes (Mt) in Measured and Indicated categories (M&I), grading 1.07% CuEq (0.81% Cu, 0.26g/t Au, 3.23g/t Ag and 0.011% Mo) for a total of 651 million pounds (Mlbs) of contained M&I copper and an additional 38 Mlbs Cu Inferred as the main input. Building off a 2017 PEA(1), the updated study will encompass the following:

  • Significant Increase in Contained Copper – The 2022 resource estimate marked a 43% increase in contained copper over the previous estimate referenced(2)
  • Inclusion of Sulphide Processing – As of the publication of the 2022 resource estimate the Carmacks project consists of roughly 50/50 sulfide and oxide resources by contained metal. The Company sees the inclusion of sulphide resources as a significant potential value driver having a positive impact on the economics of the project; and
  • High Proportion of Resources Modeled in Three Conceptual Open Pits – 96% of the 2022 resources are contained within the conceptual pits (Figure 1). With a high percentage of current resources reporting in conceptual pits the cash cost per pound of copper is expected to be significantly lower when compared to a similar sized underground operation.

Timothy Johnson, Granite Creek President & CEO, stated, “The launch of the updated Preliminary Economic Assessment study marks a major milestone in the development of the Carmacks deposit at a time when commodities demand is seeing rapid growth. The Carmacks project is well-positioned by its location, access to infrastructure, and proximity to the operating, high-grade Minto mine just to the north. Both copper and molybdenum have been deemed by the Canadian government to be ‘critical minerals‘ based on their role in the transition to a low-carbon economy which we expect will provide prolonged price strength well into the future. We look forward to continuing to bring positive news as we develop this high-grade copper project.”

  • Map-based prospectivity analysis and exploration target generation;
  • Generation of a revamped 3D geological model; and
  • Initial test study of company core logging compared with historic imagery, using GoldSpot’s LithoLens.

Proof of concept was achieved when GoldSpot identified several grass-roots target areas previously identified by the Granite Creek team, but not shared with the GoldSpot team. Additional regional targets are new to the Granite Creek team and will be evaluated in the coming field season.

GoldSpot’s collaboration with Granite Creek produced several potential new targets for 2022 exploration and resource expansion, including sub-parallel raft-like domains of possible mineralization adjacent to zones 147, 2000S and 13 at the Carmacks deposit. These were initially hinted at through data mining of the drill hole database. Follow-up geochemical analysis and 3D models suggest a previously unrecognized relationship between geochemistry and mineralized zones, specifically a tell-tale halo around mineralization. These halos indicate several areas for follow-up drill testing. New regional targets have also been produced at Carmacks North using multiple geophysical techniques, including aeromagnetic and induced polarity (IP) surveys.

Vincent Dubé-Bourgeois Chief Executive Officer for GoldSpot commented, “The technologies developed by GoldSpot to provide its innovative technology to partners such as Granite Creek and provided excellent results. The targets generated by GoldSpot AI showed the exploration potential on the Carmacks project.”

Granite Creek President and CEO Tim Johnson stated, “The prospectivity of the Carmacks project has been confirmed and expanded on by the excellent work completed by GoldSpot. The number of new targets combined with the existing targets developed from historical data continues to support our assertion that there is a lot of discovery yet to be made on the property. GoldSpot’s work has advanced our understanding of the property and will become an integral part in our planning for our 2022 exploration program. We look forward to discussing our plans for the upcoming field season and we are on track to deliver a significant update to the existing NI 43-101 mineral resource estimate in Q1, as expected.”

Granite Creek Copper Identifies New Targets at Carmacks Copper-Gold Project Through Deployment of GoldSpot Discoveries’ Artificial Intelligence Technology

VANCOUVER, BC / ACCESSWIRE / February 14, 2022 / Granite Creek Copper Ltd. (TSX.V:GCX | OTCQB:GCXXF) (“Granite Creek” or the “Company“) is pleased to announce that GoldSpot Discoveries Corp. (TSX.V: SPOT) (“GoldSpot”) has completed work for Granite Creek Copper’s Carmacks project. GoldSpot was engaged to apply their proprietary machine learning technology and geoscience expertise on the Company’s Carmacks deposit and Carmacks North target area, located in the high-grade Minto copper belt of Canada ‘s Yukon Territory.

GoldSpot is a mining-focused technology company that is working with some of the leading exploration and mining names in the industry to apply cutting edge Artificial Intelligence (“AI”) algorithms to significantly increase the efficiency and success rate of mineral exploration. Recent successes by GoldSpot with leading projects in exploration, development, and production-phases have demonstrated the potential to expand resources and make new discoveries using their advanced analytical technology.

Highlights of the Granite Creek-GoldSpot collaboration include:

  • Re-interpretation of geophysical data, and the use of GoldSpot’s in-house image processing approach GeoFEZ™, to produce new priority exploration targets
  • Statistical analysis of multi-element geochemical data to develop geochemical signatures of ‘mineralized lenses (rafts)’
  • Development of Machine Learning products to help vector towards previously unidentified mineralized horizons (rafts)
  • Generation of a revamped 3D geological model on the Carmacks deposit
  • Preliminary analysis of historic drill-core photos using GoldSpot’s LithoLens

Granite Creek’s collaboration with GoldSpot produced several potential new targets (see figure 1), including sub- parallel zones adjacent to zones 147, 2000S and 13 at the Carmacks deposit identified by an analysis of the drillhole database. The spatial relationship between the geochemical signature of mineralization and associated depleted areas haloing mineralization identifies targets areas where a depletion halo occurs with no known associated mineralization. In addition to the target areas in and around the Carmacks deposit, new targets were developed in the Carmacks North area, based on a review of multiple geophysical techniques, including aeromagnetic surveys and induced polarity surveys with the interplay between the survey types generating and confirming the anomalies.

The outcome of this high-quality work provides the technical team at Granite Creek Copper with extremely valuable and necessary tools to assist in drill hole targeting for the 2022 campaign, including resource expansion, early-stage prospects, and exploratory targets on the highly prospective 176 square kilometer Carmacks copper-gold project.

Granite Creek President & CEO, Tim Johnson, stated, “The prospectively of the Carmacks project has been confirmed and expanded on by the excellent work completed by Goldspot. The number of new targets combined with the existing targets developed from historical data continues to support our assertion that there is a lot of discovery yet to be made on the property. Goldspot’s work has advanced our understanding of the property and will become an integral part in our planning for our 2022 exploration program. We look forward to discussing our plans for the upcoming field season and we are on track to deliver a significant update to the existing NI 43-101 mineral resource estimate in Q1, as expected.
