Shear zone hosted veins
Mineralized structure is over 7 km long inside claim block. Rock chips over 2 g/t Au extend over 2 km.
Geologic modelling indicates the mineralized zone extends for at least 1800 vertical feet.
The Auxer gold and silver project is an orogenic type project with significant gold and silver showing in both soil and rock chips. The land package is currently 138 federal mining claims which cover over 2,700 acres of forest service ground. This claim package is over 7 km long, and shows gold and silver mineralization along the entire strike length.
There is a historic area which saw production of a couple of hundred ounces of gold in the late 1970's and early 1980's which has been the focus of our exploration efforts so far. We have identified a gold anomoly in soils and rock chips that extends for over 2 km of strike length in this historic area. Silver values increase to the north along trend.
Our geologic mapping and sampling has revealed that the historic area is actually the top half of the mineralized structure which has been fault offset. The bottom portion (hanging wall) has never been identied before, but our sampling and geologic interpretation indicate vertical continuity of at least 570 meters.
Take a moment and look over the data below! There are some interesting videos which highlight some key features!
The Auxer gold and silver project is located along a rich orogenic gold and silver belt that stretches from the Yukon to central Idaho. This belt contains such world class orogenic districts as the Pioneer-Bralorne mine and the Barkerville district.
Auxer is located directly between the Sheep Creek orogenic gold camp in southern B.C. and the Murray gold district in Idaho, and shares many geologic characteristics of each.
The Auxer is hosted in a magnetite bearing quartz diorite sill. This is the same host rock as the Bralorne block of the giant Pioneer-Bralorne mine in B.C. (2.7 million ounces of gold at 25 g/t), and the same host rock as the giant West Branch deposit at the Tasiast gold mine in Mauritania.
This rock has ideal characteristics to induce both chemical and physical depostion processes during an orogenic gold event, frequently resulting in both larger deposits and higher grades than competing host rock types.
The Auxer has rock chip gold grades of over 2 g/t for over 2 km on the surface. Historic and modern sampling of historic workings show significant intercepts of high grade material, up to 22 feet 17 g/t (historic).
Rock chips and soil samples show a significant zone of gold enrichment.
Auxer shares many characteristics with world class orogenic gold depostits found around the planet. The videos in this section highlight these features, illustrating why Lightning Creek Resources Corp. believes the property to have the potential to become a significant orogenic gold discovery.
The Auxer has been cut by a fault, exposing the mineralization in both the hangingwall and footwall.

The ore geometry of the Auxer is typical of large orogenic systems.

Would the 4+ Million ounce Pioneer-Bralorne mine fit inside the Auxer?
