King East prospect is extended over an area of 2 x 3 km, representing a cluster of northerly trending VTEM anomalies, diorite dikes, sericitic alteration, veins, and elevated gold-in-soil values: all together highlighting the potential of a porphyry system at depth. To the south, the Upper Triassic Stuhini Group sediments are intruded by a zoned intrusion and associated alteration halo (Howson, 1990a).


  • • Gold (± silver) mineralization in sub-vertical vein stockwork and breccia similar to the high-grade gold mineralization at the Valley of the Kings.
  • • Anomalous Gold (>50ppb up to 6000 ppb) and Copper (>50ppm up to 2500ppm) values coincident with the margins of the altered intrusion.
  • • Trench chip sampling in the same area returned values up to 1.74 g/t Au over 6.0m in siliceous siltstone units.
  • • Building on the results from KH20-38, Metallis planned to fly ZTEM and SkyTEM surveys over King East for target definition. (See News Release April 07, 2021)
