Quartz Mountain Resources Ltd. (TSXV:QZM,OTCBB:QZMRF) announced the results of summer exploration projects carried out by Amarc Resources Ltd. (TSXV:AHR), its partner, at the ZNT and Galaxie projects, both of which are in British Columbia, Canada. One highlight is that surface exploration at ZNT has “delineated a compelling silver and zinc anomaly that is ready for drill testing.”
As quoted in the press release:
The ZNT property is located 15 kilometres southeast of the town of Smithers, BC, and is accessible by road. The property was staked by Quartz Mountain on the basis of significant zinc concentrations in regional till samples as reported by Geoscience BC. In 2012, approximately 2,400 grid soil geochemical samples and 20 line kilometres of Induced Polarization (“IP”) ground geophysical survey were completed. These initial exploration activities defined a new and unusually strong silver and zinc-in-soils anomaly measuring 1.8 kilometres by 1.2 kilometres … indicating the potential presence of an important-scale mineralizing system. In July 2013, a pitting and trenching program designed to further refine the target was completed over 16 days. Some 170 rock and 36 soil geochemical samples were collected from 62 pits and trenches. Integration of the data from these surface programs has defined a sizable silver deposit-target hosted by volcanogenic sandstones that will be the focus of the drilling program.
