Takla First Nation and Sun Metals announce exploration agreement for Stardust

Canada NewsWire

VANCOUVER, July 3, 2018 /CNW/ - The Takla First Nation ("Takla") and Sun Metals Corp. ("Sun Metals" or the "Company") (TSXV: SUNM) are pleased to announce that they have entered into an Exploration Agreement related to the Stardust project located within the traditional lands of Takla in northcentral British Columbia.

Sun Metals (CNW Group/Sun Metals)

Chief John French stated, "Entering into this agreement will ensure that Takla benefits from the exploration activities, and that they will be carried out in a manner which respects Takla's Aboriginal title, rights, and interests. Sun Metals recognizing Takla's stewardship role in environmental monitoring, wildlife monitoring and water sampling was vital in building support for the project with Takla members."

Steve Robertson, Sun Metals President and CEO said, "Sun Metals is built on the founding principle of growing value on a large scale for shareholders and communities alike. I see the signing of this Exploration Agreement as the beginning of the path to achieve this. I will work diligently and closely with Chief French to ensure that Stardust has a positive outcome for Takla, shareholders and all British Columbians."

Sun Metals has embarked on the 2018 Stardust field program that will include:

  • Airborne VTEM and Magnetics survey
  • Mapping and prospecting
  • Selective relogging and resampling of 80,000 metres of existing drill core
  • 15,000 metre diamond drilling program starting in August

Technical aspects of this news release have been reviewed and approved by Ian Neill P.Geo., Vice President Exploration of Sun Metals, who is a qualified person as defined by National Instrument 43-101.

On Behalf of the Board of Directors of

SUN METALS CORP.

About Sun Metals

Sun Metals is advancing its flagship, high-grade Stardust project located in northcentral British Columbia, Canada. Stardust is a polymetallic Carbonate Replacement Deposit with a rich history.

The Canyon Creek copper-gold skarn zone at Stardust was the subject of a 2018, 43-101 compliant resource estimate published by the Company in January 2018. GeoSim Services Inc. provided the following estimate.

(1)The cut-off grade used in the resource estimate was 1.5% copper equivalent. Metal price assumptions for the copper equivalent calculation were $3.00/lb Cu, $1.25/lb Zn, $1,300/oz Au and $18/oz Ag. Adjustment factors to account for differences in relative metallurgical recoveries of the constituents will depend upon completion of definitive metallurgical testing. The following equation was used to calculate copper equivalence: Cu Eq = Cu + (Zn x 0.4167) + (Au x 0.6319) + (Ag x 0.0087). A cut-off grade of 1.5% Cu Equivalent represents an in-situ metal value of approximately $100/tonne which is believed to represent a reasonable break-even cost for underground mining and processing. These are not mineral reserves and no work has been completed that demonstrates economic viability at the Project.

 

Sun Metals believes B.C. is a reliable jurisdiction with excellent exposure to capital markets, a deep pool of exploration professionals, a wealth of supporting services, and exceptional infrastructure with direct access to Pacific markets.
