Greenland |  (Silver, Lead, Zinc)

The Greenland Creek property consists of 247 claims (15,000 acres) located 30km north of Kimberley, in southeastern British Columbia. Initial drilling on the property was carried out in 1996 by the Eagle Plains/Miner River joint-venture (now merged), and consisted of 5 drillholes totalling approximately 1800' (550m). Drilling completed in early November of 1997 consisted of 7 shallow holes comprising a total of 2000' (600m). All 7 holes encountered base-metal mineralization and alteration assemblages associated with sedex deposits. Numerous thin stratabound sulphide bands were intersected, some of which display continuity over 60m, and are open down-dip and along strike.

This property is currently optioned to Mineral Metals Group (MMG) which is part of the Minmetals Resources Limited group of companies (HKEx: 1208); MMG is the third largest zinc producer in the world and operates a portfolio of world-class base metal mining operations, development projects and exploration projects. Operating mines include the Century mine in Queensland, Australia's largest open pit zinc mine; the Golden Grove underground mine in Western Australia and the Rosebery underground mine in Tasmania, both of which produce zinc, copper, lead and precious metals; and the Sepon gold and copper operations in Lao. Development projects include the Dugald River zinc, lead and silver deposit in north western Queensland. In Canada, MMG is focussed on development of the Izok Lake polymetallic deposit in Nunavut, as well as systematic exploration in the area of the High Lake and Izok Lake projects. Target commodities include copper, zinc-lead and nickel.
