About the Knauss Creek and Holy Grail properties
The fully owned Knauss Creek and optioned Holy Grail properties start about 10 kilometres north of the town of Terrace in British Columbia, Canada. They are easily accessible by two highways and a network of logging roads. They are contiguous and form a horseshoe covering about 730 square kilometres.
The southern tip of the Golden Triangle arrives just northwest of the properties. The Bowser Lake and the Hazelton groups hosting most of the deposits and mines of this area are also underlying the Knauss Creek and Holy Grail.
Several gold, silver, copper, lead and zinc occurrences where found in the past. The most notable is the Dorreen mine and, according to historical documents, around 700 tonnes of ore were mined out at an average grade of more than 10 grams per tonne (g/t) gold (Au).
The properties hold several interesting gold showings, sometimes with silver, copper, lead and zinc.
