Vancouver, British Columbia--(Newsfile Corp. - January 10, 2019) - Orestone Mining Corp. (TSXV: ORS) (WKN: A2DWW7) is pleased to announce the staking of an additional Cu-Au porphyry target at its Captain Property in north central BC. The new Cu-Au porphyry target "MAX" is located 7 km northwest of its main East Admiral Au-Cu porphyry target.
The Max Extension claims cover 2,834 hectares (28.3 sq. km) and cover a phyllic altered felsic intrusive with disseminated chalcopyrite exposed along a forestry logging access road. The new Max target has marked similarities to the East Admiral zone lying at the junction of a NW and NE faults- associated with a MMI Cu-Au geochemical anomaly and quartz sericite alteration characteristic of the outer zone of a Cu-Au porphyry. The Max claims lie along a NW trending linear fault and linear magnetic high extending from the East Admiral Cu-Au zone.
The Captain Project now covers 72 sq. km and hosts a large gold/copper porphyry system with multiple targets located 41 kilometers north of Fort St. James, British Columbia and approximately 30 kilometers south of the Mt. Milligan copper-gold Mine owned by Centerra Gold. The project features relatively flat terrain, moderate tree cover and an extensive network of logging and Forest Service roads suitable for exploration year around.
