Since 2000, Klondike Silver Corp. has maintained a dominant
presence in the Slocan Silver Camp of British Columbia, an area rich in silver that has been explored since the first discoveries in the region in 1891. The Slocan silver camp has a rich history, having produced more than 2 million kilograms of silver, 262 million kilograms of lead and 258 million kilograms of zinc since its discovery. Klondike Silver continues this legacy today. The Company’s assets include 68 past producing mines, a 100 ton per day flotation mill in Sandon and over 100 square kilometres of prospective exploration lands. Underexplored by modern exploration techniques, this land has seen little modern exploration because of the previous fragmented ownership and the presence of overburden. The Klondike Silver Land Package represents prime hunting ground for important new silver/zinc/lead rich discoveries. Including an area on strike with the Main Lode: an 8 kilometre long structure that hosted the biggest producing mines in the area.
In addition to underground drilling and exploration programs within the most prospective of the past producing mines, exploration programs will use advanced geophysical, geochemical and other modern exploration techniques to explore for extensions of known near surface veins and new vein-hosted targets obscured by overburden. Regional and underground exploration is assisted by a number of seasoned geologists that have decades of experience in this mining camp. See slide 16 – 2017 Work Program.
The Slocan Silver Camp is located in mining-friendly British Columbia, Canada near main population centres. The Klondike Silver mill is 140 Km by road from Teck (formerly Cominco) Resources’ Trail smelter
