Blackstone is developing its landholding around the Little Gem project in Canada, which is rapidly emerging into British Columbia’s premier cobalt belt.
Using soil sampling techniques Blackstone identified multiple new large-scale targets at the Jewel copper-gold-cobalt prospect within Little Gem.
The new soil anomalies are greater than 1.5 kilometres long and coincide with recently identified induced polarisation targets, indicating a large sulphide-bearing body at depth.
The Jewel prospect is 1.1 kilometres northeast of the Little Gem prospect and is associated with the high-grade Jewel Underground Mine with historical production of 51 tonnes between 1938 and 1940.
Historical average mining grades of 73 g/t and 0.4% copper have been supported by Blackstone rock chip samples assaying up to 98 g/t gold, 3.2% copper and 0.1% cobalt.
