Vancouver, B.C., November 09, 2023 - Canada One Mining Corp. (“Canada One” or the “Company”) (TSXV: CONE) (OTC: COMCF) (FSE: AU31) completed an orientation field program on the CM1 Copper Property (“CM1” or the “Property”), a 1,054 Ha land package that was recently added to Canada One’s Flagship Copper Dome Project (now totaling over 5800 Ha). CM1 is contiguous with the Copper Dome Project, located immediately south of Hudbay Mineral’s active Copper Mountain Mine near Princeton, British Columbia.
Mr. Peter Berdusco, President and CEO of Canada One, commented: “Positive indications for copper potential on CM1 include a large alteration footprint with intensely quartz-sericite-pyrite altered intrusions which together represent a new and distinct magmatic hydrothermal center adjacent to the Copper Mountain Mine. CM1 is highly prospective for porphyry copper-gold mineralization and we look forward to executing a systematic exploration program.”
CM1 contains geological features consistent with the distal coppery porphyry setting and has confirmed the potential for bulk copper-gold mineralization:
Alteration footprint measuring at least 2.5 by 2.5 kilometers
Favorable host rocks including Nicola Group mafic volcanic rocks
Quartz-sericite-pyrite altered quartz-feldspar porphyry intrusions
Field Evaluation of CM1
An orientation field evaluation campaign was conducted on CM1 to examine alteration and mineralization associated with the Nicola Group volcanic rocks and younger intrusions. A total of 26 mapping station outcrops were reviewed and together outline an alteration footprint measuring at least 2.5 x 2.5 kilometers defined by chlorite-epidote-carbonate +/- pyrite with internal zones of quartz-sericite-pyrite alteration and zones of calc-silicate skarn development (Figures 2 and 3).
Economic Geology of CM1
CM1 is underlain by Triassic-Jurassic Nicola group basalt-andesite composition volcanic rocks which are intruded by hornblende-feldspar porphyry dikes that are interpreted to belong to the Early Jurassic Copper Mountain stock of the Copper Mountain Intrusions to the north. Recent field work has identified a large alteration footprint consisting of chlorite-epidote-carbonate-pyrite altered Nicola Group mafic fragmental volcanic rocks. Locally, carbonate-rich sedimentary rocks internal to the Nicola Group are altered to calc-silicate skarn (garnet-pyroxene-epidote) (Figure 3). The Property is cut by quartz feldspar porphyry dykes (diorite) which are overprinted by intense (texturally destructive) quartz-sericite-pyrite alteration and are limonitic in exposed outcrops.
The Nicola Group is considered highly prospective and is host to porphyry copper-gold deposits and mines in southern British Columbia including:
1- Copper Mountain Mine (Hudbay Minerals3) immediately north of CM1
2- MPD Exploration/Development project north of Princeton (Kodiak Copper4)
3- New Afton active block cave mine near Kamloops (Newgold5) *
