Calgary, Alberta–(Newsfile Corp. – February 6, 2021) – Champion Bear Resources Ltd. (TSXV: CBAV) (“champion bear“or the”Company“) announced today that it is encouraged by the efforts and investments of the partners involved in the valuation of Parkin Offset Dyke where Champion Bear holds a 50% interest.
Lonmin Canada Inc. currently has a joint venture agreement with Wallbridge Mining under which it can spend up to $11 million on exploration to earn up to half of Wallbridge’s interest in the Parkin properties. This is in addition to the $7.2 million spent by Implats on previous exploration programs.
Richard Kantor, company president, said, “Champion Bear acquired the CBA Parkin offset property in 1997 from John Brady, a renowned prospector in the Sudbury area. It is host to the aptly named Brady showing, where surface stripping exposed massive sulphide mineralization which channel sampling returned 11.2% Cu, 0.6% Ni, 9.2 g/t Pt, 4.3 g/t Pd and 1.6 g/t Au over 2.7 meters. Diamond drilling intersected gold values such as the Glencore Parkin property (located immediately to the southwest) which included 44.0 g/t Au over 1.4 meters at a depth of 543 meters.”
Mr. Kantor added, “It is very rare for a junior exploration company to have a share of the stock in the Sudbury Basin, Canada’s premier mining community that has been largely controlled by the big mining companies over the years. of the last 125 years. With the Sibanye Stillwater acquisition from Lonmin in 2018, I look forward to seeing the results of any exploration the company may carry out on the properties in the near future. »
Champion Bear looks forward to the results of the joint venture’s exploration program when they become available.
