Belmont LIDAR Survey Supports Deep-Seated Copper-Gold Porphyry Model on Come By Chance Property Greenwood Mining Camp, B.C

VANCOUVER, BC / ACCESSWIRE / October 6, 2020 / Belmont Resources Ltd. (“Belmont”), (or the “Company”), (TSXV:BEA)(FSE:L3L2) is pleased to report that the helicopter-borne Lidar survey on the company’s Come By Chance property in the historic Greenwood Mining Camp has been completed. The 5.3 square km survey was flown by Pioneer Exploration Consultants Ltd., with point cloud data acquired at a density of 20 points per square metre.

The Come by Chance (CBC) Property covers an area of approximately 527 hectares and has a history of mineral exploration dating from the late 1890’s which is evident in the many pits, shafts, and adits which were developed in the search for a Phoenix type copper/gold skarn mineral deposit. Although the Phoenix mineral resource was the major producer, some of the smaller mines were productive from a number of different types of deposits. From 1900 to 1975 production from these 26 principal mines was, in addition to a significant amount of lead, silver, and zinc, 580 Mlbs of copper and 1.4 Moz of gold
(Church, 1986) 1.

Belmont Properties Map

The CBC Property is located three kilometres to the southeast of the Phoenix deposits and on a comparative geological trend, hosts skarn. epithermal, and massive sulphide mineralization; typical mineralization associated with deep-seated copper/gold porphyry deposits. Skarn mineralization with elevated copper values occurs in many locations, with epithermal zones of alteration and quartz veining intersected by a diamond-drill hole situated near the major Eagle Mountain Fault in the southwest. An additional indication of epithermal mineralization is the free gold in quartz near the major Lind Creek Fault in the northeast.


A small circular lake with a highly anomalous arsenic content centered between these major faults, appears as a hydrothermal or a collapsed breccia developed from an underlying intrusive in a volcanic environment. The location of the intrusive is supported by the results from the Lidar survey which clearly showed a series of radiating faults from the lake and obscure ringed faults surrounding the lake. These faults were likely developed from a rising intrusive and were instrumental as the means of mineral laden hydrothermal fluid transport from the intrusive to create the localized skarns. The largest area of mineralization on the Property, the Betts copper/gold Betts skarn area may have developed from the same hydrothermal fluids that caused the heterolithic breccia alteration of the Eagle Mountain Fault.

Most of the historic exploration of the Betts area, which probably targeted the large area of skarn mineralization, consisted of open-cuts, shafts, a 22 metre upper and a 251 metre lower adit. Although the skarn zones were not enhanced, the most significant result from the exploration was the intersection of a chute of massive sulphides; another indication of a potential deep-seated copper/gold porphyry deposit.

ISO view of CBC and AJ Properties

The CBC Property clearly requires additional exploration to locate the intrusive that generated the massive sulphide, epithermal, and skarn mineralization. The results of the Lidar survey has provided significant information to the location of the intrusive and the pending results of a magnetometer, survey should provide a specific target to test by a geophysical Induced Potential deep penetration survey or diamond drilling, for the indicated deep-seated copper-gold porphyry.
