Sun Summit (SMN) has defined a strong geophysical anomaly at its Buck Project in B.C.

Based on a recent induced polarization survey, the high-chargeability and high-resistivity anomaly resides in the Eagle Eye Zone (3 x 2.5 km), which is locally coincident with the area’s southeastern resistivity anomaly.

The finding’s signature is similar to the Buck Main target and suggests the potential for sulphide-related mineralization.

The potentially sulphide-related bedrock source covers an area of roughly 700 x 600 m.

The target area is also coincident with a broad zinc and arsenic soil geochemical anomaly.

Assay results from sampling and an 8-hole, 3,000 m diamond drilling program at Buck are pending.

The company will use survey data and upcoming assay results to delineate additional high-priority drill targets to better understand the anomalies.

“Results from the recently completed IP survey further confirm that additional prospective targets likely exist throughout the Buck Project, and ongoing systematic exploration has the potential to identify and advance these new targets to the drill-ready stage,” stated Sharyn Alexander, President of Sun Summit.

“The coincident geophysical anomalies, favourable lithologies, and sulphide-mineralized showings at Eagle Eye are indicators of the high prospectivity at this untested target,” she added.

Sun Summit Minerals is an exploration company focused on expanding its high-grade gold, silver and zinc discovery at its 100-per-cent-owned Buck Project in B.C.

Sun Summit (SMN) is up by 6.9 per cent, trading at $0.155 per share as of 10:11 am ET.
