Metallis Resources Inc.
Metallis Resources Inc. is a Vancouver-based TSX-V Listed company focused on the exploration of gold, copper, silver and nickel on its 100-per-cent-owned Kirkham property in northwest British Columbia's prolific Golden Triangle.
The company acquired the Kirkham Property, which was carefully assembled by world-renowned copper-gold expert, Rodney Kirkham, over a number of years following the discovery at Eskay Creek. The property features several geological environments – magmatic sulphide, porphyry and shear vein - and is located strategically within BC's Golden Triangle – an area that has produced immense base and precious metal wealth over the last 50 years. The geological setting of this property is believed to have the potential for a world class mineral discovery.
The Kirkham Project – Located in the Heart of the Prolific Golden Triangle
Metallis's 100-per-cent-owned, 100-square-kilometre Kirkham property rests in the heart of the Eskay camp, and is prospective for gold-copper porphyry, high-grade gold and base metal mineralization.
The northern border of Kirkham is contiguous to Garibaldi Resources' E&L Nickel Mountain project, approximately 12 km southwest of the Eskay Creek mine. The eastern border of Kirkham is within 15 to 20 km of Seabridge Gold's KSM deposit and Pretium Resources' Brucejack mine which is now in commercial production.
