Mining.com – Exploration hot spot: some of the most richly-endowed terrain in British Columbia

BC’s Golden Triangle and Skeena Arch became world-renown for mining long before Queen Victoria approved the confederation of Canada. In 1861 a prospector by the name of Alexander “Buck” Choquette made a gold discovery which sparked the Stikine Gold Rush.

During their long history, these phenomenally prolific districts produced millions of ounces of gold as well as other base and precious metals. Each hosting legendary mines such as Premier, Snip, Eskay Creek, Red Chris, Dome, Endako and Bell. In fact, Skeena Arch boasts some of the most richly endowed terrain in British Columbia with hundreds of known polymetallic veins and porphyry deposits.

However, even with a century of proven exploration and production, the remote beauty of both Golden Triangle and Skeena Arch have kept them relatively untapped. Now that infrastructure has radically improved, and precious metals have begun the upward curve of a new supercycle, these regions are experiencing yet another boom of excited activity.

One of the many explorers working to dig up a fortune in both these mineral-rich districts is Canadian-based Jaxon Mining (TSXV: JAX). Over the past year, Jaxon strategically acquired two massive, highly-prospective holdings: More Creek, encompassing 24,550 hectares approximately 50 kilometres north of Eskay Creek in the Golden Triangle, and the company’s flagship project, Hazelton, forty kilometres north of Smithers in the Skeena Arch. Hazelton Project spans an incredible 39,426 hectares and holds some intriguing possibilities for Jaxon and its investors.
