Big picture - Why invest in Jaxon Mining Inc
Jaxon Mining Inc Snapshot
Jaxon is a Canadian-based exploration and development company focused on acquiring highly prospective high-grade precious and base metals properties within Western Canada. Using a data driven exploration approach, including re-interpretation of historic work with modern techniques, Jaxon is targeting regions with similar geological structures to known districts in order to identify new and promising opportunities. With a district scale focus, the Company is strategically amassing a remarkable portfolio of claims.
Jaxon currently holds over 32,000 ha in two of Canada’s most prolific districts - the Skeena Arch and the Iskut - Golden Triangle.
Hazelton (formally Price Creek), Jaxon’s flagship property, spans 28,000 hectares and is prospective for worldclass Eskay Creek and Equity Silver style mineralization with direct shipping ore grades. Widespread soil anomalies and surface showings up to 3,397 g/t Ag, 22.7 g/t Au, and 22.29% Zn have been found on this advanced exploration project and a number of features suggest that the property has a high potential. These include the age of the host rocks, the stratiform nature of some sulfide zones, the high silver values and the presence of 19 massive-sulfide bearing-bearing outcrops west of an extensive 3,000 m x 700 m soil grid. A systematic work program will be undertaken in 2017 on this drill ready and road accessible property. Hazelton is located 40 km north of Smithers, a mining-friendly town in north central British Columbia.
Targets are shallow-marine VMS with an epithermal component of precious and base metals containing bonanza shipping grade oreHighlights:
Geologically similar to Barrick Gold’s Eskay Creek Mine and Goldcorp’s Equity Silver Mine
$3 million worth of historical data available
Historical drilling from the 1980s, before the Eskay Creek VMS model was recognized, was too shallow and targeted veins rather than stratiform mineralization
Jaxon is compiling and prioritizing historical data in preparation for a 2017 work program. Targets are shallow-marine volcanogenic massive sulfides (VMS) with an epithermal component of precious and base metals prospective for bonanza grade material. VMS deposits, are associated with and created by volcanic-associated hydrothermal events in submarine environments. In modern oceans they are synonymous with sulfurous plumes called black smokers.
The company believes that geologists exploring the Hazelton property during the 1980s, before the Eskay Creek VMS model was recognized, targeted veins at shallow depths as opposed to the potentially economic stratiform mineralization likely lying beneath. VMS deposits typically occur in clusters, therefore if the company discovers one it is likely that others may be nearby. Once the company has reviewed the historical data for the property, a strategic and targeted work campaign will be announced for the summer of 2017.

The Wishbone property is comprised of 4,000 ha and is located within the Golden Triangle in Western British Columbia, aproximately 30 kilometres southeast of the Nova Gold/Teck-owned Galore Creek Property, a significant copper-gold-silver asset. The project is located in a region with active glaciation and has seen only limited exploration. Wishbone containes epithermal/mesothermal quartz hosted vein and rhyolite volcanic VMS targets on the northern extent of the property, and a series of six gold mineralized veins within 200 m of the original discovery vein have been found to date. The longest vein is exposed intermittently for approximately 550 m.
The property has seen some historic exploration which includes:
- The most consistent channel samples in a single vein averaging 7.8 g/t Au over an average vein width of 2.4 metres and a strike length of 78 metres.
- Mineralized boulder train and outcrop consisting of disseminated massive sulphides in quartz carbonate vein material with assay values up to 6.7 kg/t Ag, and 8.2% Cu.
The company announced the signing of a definitive agreement for the Wishbone property in March of 2017 with an option to earn 100% interest in the property.
2017 Spring/Summer Work Program
Jaxon is currently in the process of defining the summer work program. Details will be announced once the plan is complete; however, the program will include:
- Examination of newly exposed ground from glacial melt.
- Detailed follow-up of numerous high priority targets identified from historic data.
- Property-wide sampling and reconnaissance.
