Sun Summit Minerals Corp. (SMN) has completed a high-resolution VTEM geophysical survey across the Buck Property, central British Columbia.

Geotech Ltd. executed the helicopter-borne VTEM (Versatile Time Domain Electromagnetic) geophysical survey across the Buck property, and over 1,800-line-kilometre survey was conducted on east-west oriented lines spaced 200 metres apart.

The core objective is to investigate the electromagnetic signature of the Buck Main epithermal-related system and to look for comparable signatures across the entire property.

Preliminary VTEM results are being interpreted together with compiled geological and geochemical data to define areas considered prospective for Buck-style epithermal-related gold-silver-zinc mineralization as well as porphyry-related copper mineralization.

Field crews will be mobilized following geophysical data interpretation to conduct focused geological and structural mapping and soil geochemical surveys across priority target areas.

Targets within and peripheral to the Buck Main system are currently being prioritised and drill hole planning is ongoing.

Financially, the company is well capitalized with over $5.0 million in the treasury.

“The primary goal of the VTEM geophysical survey was to obtain important new data from across the large property to identify and prioritise zones of high prospectivity outside of the Buck Main zone,” said Sharyn Alexander, Sun Summit’s President.

“This new data, together with compiled and reinterpreted historic and recently acquired exploration data, will provide our technical team with a robust dataset to build on this summer with the primary goal of discovery,” she added.

Sun Summit is engaging with First Nations on whose territory the Buck Property is located and is discussing their interests and identifying contract and work opportunities and opportunities to support community initiatives. 

Sun Summit Minerals is an exploration company focused on expanding its epithermal gold, silver, and zinc discovery at its flagship 100-per-cent-controlled Buck Project located in north-central British Columbia near the town of Houston in central B.C.

Sun Summit Minerals Corp. was up 11.111 per cent, trading at $0.20 at 11:16 AM ET.
