Jaxon Mining Expands Hazelton Property and Engages JT Thomas Diamond Drilling for 2021 Drilling Program
March 29, 2021, Vancouver, Canada - Jaxon Mining Inc. (“Jaxon” or the “Company”) (TSX.V: JAX, FSE: OU31, OTC: JXMNF) is pleased to announce it has expanded its 100% controlled Hazelton property by staking and acquiring 14 additional mineral tenures, increasing the total Hazelton property area to 70,182.42 hectares at NTS 93M centered at -127° 10' 46" Longitude, 55° 11' 5" Latitude. Jaxon now has seven projects on its Hazelton Property: Netalzul Mt, Red Springs, Blunt Mt, Max, Mt Thoen, Rocher Deboule Mt and Kispiox Mt (Figure 1). This strategic expansion, conducted in the first quarter of 2021, was based on the results of conceptual geological and mineralization modeling, informed by regional geology, provincial aeromagnetic data, MINFILEs and other activities.
The Company is also pleased to announce JT Thomas Diamond Drilling has been retained to provide their services for the 2021 drilling program, starting with the Phase One 4,000-metre core drilling program at the Netalzul Mountain project.
The Netalzul Mountain project exhibits extensive geochemical and geophysical anomalies and surface showings of both high-grade, structurally controlled, polymetallic, intermediate sulfidation type Ag, Au, Cu and porphyritic Cu-Mo mineralization. Netalzul Mountain is an extensive and exceptionally high-grade (up to 5300 g/t) Ag-Cu-Au-Zn-Pb-Sb in shear/fault-controlled sulfide quartz vein epithermal mineralization, driven by a Huckleberry-type Cu porphyry system. Four zones with anomalous (high) Ag, Cu, Au, Mo, Pb and Zn have been defined by both soils and rock sample assays (Figure 2) https://bit.ly/3cnQzqB:
- Daisy North Contact Zone - fault/shear contact zone between granite and hornfelsed latite
- Daisy Centre Zone - sulfide QV zone within granite
- Daisy South Adit Zone - sulfide QV zone within granite
- Daisy East Zone - porphyry related sulfide QV zone
The Phase One drill program will focus on the Daisy North Contact Zone and Daisy South Adit Zone where 2-12 metres wide and >1000 metres long, steep dip sulfide quartz veins mineralization zones have been defined on surface outcrops (Figures 3, 4).
Drilling program highlights:
- Four drill pads for 16-22 holes (3500-4000 metres)
- Three to four holes at Adit #1 zone for 1000 m, targeting > 2 m high-grade sulfide Ag-Cu-Au quartz vein at different angles and depths
- Five to six holes at Adit #2 zone for 1500 m, targeting 5 m wide high-grade sulfide Ag-Cu-Au quartz veins at different angles and depths
- Eight to twelve holes at Daisy North Contact Zone 1500 m, targeting 12 m wide high-grade Ag-Cu-Pb-Zn veins and lower grade contact/shear zone at different angles and depths, at both east and west sections
- An IP survey and structural mapping will be conducted concurrently in the same area
An updated corporate presentation containing additional information on the planned drilling program is available at https://bit.ly/3tVxT7C.
John King Burns, Chairman and CEO, commented, “We continue to strategically expand the Hazelton property based on the vision of our geological team, supported by our conceptual model. We will launch our 2021 drilling program at Netalzul Mt, along contact zones visibly pregnant with metal at surface. In Phase Two, we will focus on Red Springs, following the tourmaline breccia pipes towards the porphyry to drill-test what our conceptual geological modelling indicates as a major, high-grade, copper bearing, porphyritic system. The drilling results are expected to confirm both Netalzul and Red Springs as material discoveries and accordingly, we expect a re-valuation of Jaxon for the benefit of all Jaxon stakeholders.”
