Work to date on IMC’s 100% owned Thane Property, located in north-central British Columbia, has so far identified six areas of significant gold ± copper ± silver mineralization. At the 2 km by 1.5 km Cathedral Area, rock sampling has returned up to 20.1g/t Au and 3.29% Cu from the Pinnacle Showing and up to 6.85g/t Au and 13.90 % Cu from the Cathedral Showing. The geological model for this area is interpreted to be an alkalic porphyry, which is consistent with other deposits in the area. Results from this past summers’ geological mapping, rock and soil sampling and IP surveying are expected in early January.
