Pacific Cascade to Acquire Turner Lake Project, Nunavut

Posted: Updated:

VANCOUVER / ACCESSWIRE/ April 30, 2014 / Pacific Cascade Minerals Inc. (the “Company”) announces it has signed an agreement (subject to TSX-Venture Exchange approval) with 2406031 Ontario Ltd. (the “Vendor”) to purchase a 100% interest in the Turner Lake Project (the “Property”) located in Nunavut.

The Property consists of 3 claims, Jam 1, Jam 2 and Jam 3 comprising a land package of 2,762 hectares located near Bathurst Inlet in the Kitikmeot District of Western Nunavut, approximately 560 km NE of Yellowknife NWT.

Under the terms of the agreement the Company agrees to purchase a 100% right title and interest in the property in exchange for one million (1,000,000) common shares of Pacific Cascade Minerals Inc. to be delivered to the Vendor within 10 days of claims title being successfully transferred into the Company’s name. There is a 1% net smelter return (“NSR”) reserved by the original property owners on Jam 1, 2 and 3 and a further 1% NSR on Jam 1 with buy outs in place for all of the NSRs.

The Property contains three known Archean mineral occurrences called the Main and East Gold Zones and Nickel Knob. The Main Gold Zone trends for approximately 500 metres, open to depth and occurs along an Archean aged rift off a larger regional structure. Para-conglomerates occur on the down drop side of the rift that was later intruded by an Archean age intermediate intrusive. Host rocks are in lower Amphibolite facies.

Gold mineralization at the Main Gold Zone is situated along a Fe/Mg Tholiietic contact with the majority of the gold hosted in a crackled fractured, iron-rich metasediment containing quartz veining/microveining. Gauge minerals include Arsenopyrite and minor pyrrhotite with visible commonly observed in the quartz veins. ICP analysis indicating elevated silver and bismuth concentrations also present in the gold zone.

The Main Gold Zone was first discovered in the 1960s and has been the focus of most exploration work. Chevron Minerals Ltd. and Silver Hart Mines Ltd. 1986 to 1989 were the first companies to undertake systematic diamond drilling and surface sampling of this zone. Highlights of their 18 hole, diamond drilling program of the Main Gold Zone include:

28.00 g/tonne gold over 4.75 metres

12.86 g/tonne gold over 8.87 metres

4.08 g/tonne gold over 15.27 metres

15.20 g/tonne gold over 4.00 metres

10.00 g/tonne gold over 5.00 metres

In 2008 a diamond drill program was carried out by Northrock Resources Inc. consisting of 21 drill holes which successfully outlined gold mineralization at the Main Gold Showing and discovered massive sulphide mineralization at the Nickel Knob Showing. Ni Knob drilling discovered that the gossanous showing with up to 5-15% sulphides is the upper portion of a polymetallic massive sulphide zone at depth. The zone is hosted in volcanoclastics with an altered ultramafic unit along the footwall of one drill section. The Ni Knob Zone was drill tested along a 50 metre inferred strike length and to a 70 metre depth and remains open in all directions.

Core lengths are estimated to range between 55-80% of true width as the zone is interpreted to have a near vertical dip.

The 2009 drill program consisted of 1181.72 metres of NQ, diamond drilling in nine holes at the main Gold Zone. This program confirmed the Main Gold Zone has good continuity along strike and down-dip and, as found in all previous drilling programs, significant gold mineralization occurs within a brecciated, meta-greywacke enclosed within ultramafic volcanics. Visible gold was noted in eight of the nine holes completed in 2009.
