Skarb Announces Acquisition of Two Gold Exploration Properties
October 21, 2019
Vancouver, BC, October 21, 2019 – Skarb Exploration Corp. (“Skarb” or the “Company”) (CSE: SKRB) is pleased to announce that the Company has acquired a 100% interest in two mineral exploration properties, the Gossan and SBS properties, located in the Spences Bridge Gold Belt (“SBGB”) in British Columbia, Canada (the “Properties”) (See Figure 1).
The SBGB area has recently seen a renewed interest as a prospective region for gold exploration with the discovery of Westhaven Ventures Inc.’s Shovelnose gold deposit, which is located approximately 45 km north of the Company’s Properties. It should be noted that results from nearby and/or adjacent properties are not necessarily indicative or reflective of mineralization that may be hosted in the Company’s Properties. The acquisition of the Properties furthers Skarb’s strategy of developing and exploring a portfolio of early-stage gold exploration projects in emerging gold districts, at a low entry cost.
The Gossan property (“Gossan”), which is approximately a 902ha property, is located approximately 7 km north-west of Princeton, British Columbia, is characterized by widespread gossanous argillic alteration near a past producing pyrophyllite mine and historical placer gold workings.
The SBS property (“SBS”), which is approximately a 1,411ha property, is located approximately 27 km southeast of Princeton, British Columbia, and in particular is located at the southern-end of the SBGB and is characterized by a regional stream sediment silver anomaly, a major mapped fault system and extensive glacial till cover.
