MSM is an early-stage porphyry copper-gold prospect located in northwest British Columbia. The 58 sq. km property is underlain by the same lithologic units that host the world class Cu-Au porphyry Red Chris mine just 50 km to the southwest.
Most of the historic work at MSM was concentrated at two mineralized shear zones on the northeastern claims, and there are extensive areas of the property that have received little or no previous exploration.
MSM features strong Cu and Ag RGS geochemistry along with a total of eight documented Cu-Ag-Au gold showings with grades in rock samples up to 5.7% Cu, 41.14 g/t Ag, and 1.36 g/t Au. Copper mineralization includes chalcopyrite, chalcocite, bornite and native copper.
Known mineralized zones on the MSM property received trenching and very limited diamond drilling in the 1970's (five short holes) with local follow-up programs in the 1980's. Little work has occurred since then.
In 2014, Garibaldi compiled all previous exploration data, interpreted satellite imagery lineaments, conducted an airborne magnetic survey and collected stream sediment geochemical samples in preparation for more detailed ground work that will help define drill targets.
