Ximen Mining Corp. owns 100 percent interest in all three of its precious metal projects located in southern BC. Ximen`s two Gold projects are The Gold Drop Project and The Brett Epithermal Gold Project. Ximen also owns the Treasure Mountain Silver Project adjacent to the past producing Huldra Silver Mine. Currently both the Gold Drop Project and the Treasure Mountain Silver Project are under option agreements. The option partners are making annual staged cash and stocks payments as well as funding the development of these projects.
BRETT EPITHERMAL GOLD PROJECT
The Brett Epithermal Gold Project is Ximen’s primary precious metals project. Since 2013, Ximen has owned and controlled 100% of this 20,025 ha. epithermal gold district, which is situated in southern British Columbia near the city of Vernon. Historical intercepts from the Brett Gold property include up to 168 g/t over 1.3 m core length, with visible gold being common. In 1995–96, 291 tonnes of surface trench samples graded at 28 g/t gold and 64 g/t silver.
GOLD DROP PROJECT
Ximen has optioned its 100% owned Gold Drop Property to GGX Gold Corp (TSXV:GGX) for staged cash and stock payments and work commitments.
The Gold Drop Property hosts numerous low-sulfide, gold and silver bearing quartz veins or vein systems, four of which were previously mined. The earliest historic work on the property occurred during the 1890’s to early 1900’s, when most of the veins were discovered. Most of the underground development – mining occurred during the mid- 1920’s to 1941.
TREASURE MOUNTAIN SILVER PROJECT
The Treasure Mountain Silver Project is located within the New Westminster and Similkameen Mining Divisions in southern British Columbia. The property sits within the Intermontane Belt, a unique tectonic belt in the northwest region of North America, along which many past and current producing gold, silver, lead, zinc, and/or molybdenum mines are located.
KENVILLE GOLD MINE
Ximen Mining Corp (XIM.v) is a public exploration company that has recently entered into an option agreement to acquire the Kenville Mine near Nelson, BC Canada. The previous Kenville Mine workings have an estimated 360,000+ troy ounces of gold based upon a historical National Instrument 43-‐101. Past drill programs give evidence the extension of the high‐grade vein structures to substantially higher quantities of Gold on the adjacent claims. Ximen is confident with over half the property unexplored, that the current trend likely extends throughout the area. Ximen’s mission is to exploit the high-grade vein structures with current technology, and become a high-grade producing gold mine while concurrently exploring the limits of the reserve. The estimated life expectancy of the mine is 20 + years.
AMELIA GOLD MINE
Ximen Mining Corp. has signed an agreement to acquire certain Crown-granted mineral properties covering the historic Cariboo-Amelia gold mine in Camp McKinney near Baldy Mountain Resort in Southern British Columbia. This acquisition will add to Ximen’s significant property holdings in the region.
The Cariboo-Amelia was British Columbia’s first dividend-paying lode gold mine and was the most significant producer from Camp McKinney. Over its intermittent 68-year mine life from 1894 to 1962, the Cariboo-Amelia produced 124,452 tonnes ore, of which 112,254 tonnes are reported as milled on site. Recovery included 81,602 ounces of gold, 32,439 ounces of silver, 113,302 pounds of lead and 198,140 pounds of zinc (lead and zinc since 1940). The average recovered gold grade was 24.68 grams per tonne gold (from BC Minfile).
The acquisition includes the original Cariboo-Amelia Crown-granted claims: Molson (lot 2526s), Paragon (lot 2530s), Burley No. 1 (lot 2531s), Edward VII (lot 3499), Wonder Y (lot 2536s) Last Chance (lot 751), Fontenoy (lot 752), Emma (lot 270), Alice (lot 271), Cariboo (lot 272), Amelia (lot 273), Okanagan (lot 274), Maple Leaf (lot 613), and Sawtooth (lot 952), and Wiarton (lot 856) (082ESW217). The properties Maple Leaf and Wiarton also include the surface rights as originally granted. Total area is 199.46 hectares.
