Dillard Property

BC Location





IP Chargeability



» Location and Summary

The Dillard Property is located approximately 35 kilometres north of Princeton, where
Copper Mountain Mining Corp. recently put the Copper Mountain (Similco) copper-gold-silver mine back into production, with measured and indicated resources estimated at 326 million tonnes grading 0.373% Cu, and inferred resources of 169 million tonnes grading 0.29% Cu, plus gold and silver credits. Gold Mountain Mining Corp.’s recently acquired past-producing Elk gold-silver mine lies approximately 15 kilometres to the northeast of Dillard.

» Ownership

The Dillard Property is composed of the Dillard claims, co-owned by local prospectors, and the Dill claim, 100% owned by Fjordland.

On August 31, 2011 Fjordland signed an option agreement with private vendors to purchase a 100% interest in the 2,200-hectare Dillard claims. Fjordland may make staged cash payments to the vendors totaling $180,000, may issue a total of 1,500,000 common shares of the Company in stages and may expend $2,500,000 in exploration in stages on the Property over a five-year period. The Company will also reserve a 3% net smelter return royalty (NSR) for the vendors that may be bought down by the Company to a 1.5% NSR for $2,000,000.

On February 7, 2012 Fjordland signed an option agreement with Almaden to purchase a 100% interest n the 400-hectare Dill claim, subject to a 2% NSR, which Fjordland has the option to purchase 50%. Fjordland has currently earned in a 100% interest in the property and if Fjordland completes a NI 43-101 Resource Estimate on the Dill Property, it will issue an additional and final 1,500,000 common shares of Fjordland to Almaden.

On April 3, 2013 Fjordland signed agreements with Sumac Mines, a subsidiary of Sumitomo Metal Mining Co of Japan, on combined Dillard and Dill properties, collectively called "Dillard". Sumac may earn a 51% interest in Dillard by making total expenditures of $3.5 million over 3 years (see April 4, 2013 news release for details).

» History

Numerous historic exploration programs were completed on the Property and surrounding area. Previous exploration on the Property includes work by Noranda (1972-1973), Cominco (1981- 1983), Almaden (1987-1991) and Placer Dome (1989-1991). Since then, there has been no significant exploration in the immediate area.

Diamond drilling was completed on both properties. On the Dill property Primer Group Minerals (1966-1969) completed 18 core holes totaling 2330 metres and 3 percussion holes totaling 201 m and Placer Dome Inc. (1989-1991) completed 11 core holes totaling 2020 m. Structurally-controlled, near-surface, copper-gold mineralization was encountered in alkalic monzonites to monzodiorities that intrude Nicola Group volcanic rocks. Drilling tested an area measuring approximately 1300 m in length and 400 m in width, part of coincident copper-gold soil and induced polarization (IP) anomalies.

A selection of mineralized drill intercepts from previous drilling is presented in the following table :


» Exploration

In 2011, a prospecting program was completed identifying numerous new exposures from recent and current logging operations. Grab samples taken by Company
geologists during initial site investigations yielded assays up to 1.64% copper, 7.4 ppm silver, 0.025 ppm gold and 56.9 ppm molybdenum from new exposures in altered Nicola Group volcanic rocks and up to 28.9 g/t gold and 11.4 ppm silver from a quartz vein in granodiorite on the eastern portion of the property.

In 2012, 23.3 line kilometres and 11 line kilometres of ground magnetic and induced polarization surveys were completed over selected areas of the property. These surveys led to the identification of coincident copper-gold soil and IP anomalies in two areas in Dillard East measuring approximately 2,000 metres by 800 metres and 1,500 metres by 1,000 metres.

In 2013, exploration consisted of 17 lines totaling 43.3 line kilometres of ground magnetics and induced polarization surveys. In addition a high - resolution helicopter - borne magnetic and radiometric survesy totaling 293 line kilometres was flown over the entire property.

A 6-hole, 2600 m reconnaissance drill program was completed on both the Dillard East and West portions of the property. Four holes totaling 1,588 metres and two holes totaling 1,012 metres were completed on the Dillard West and Dillard East targets, respectively. The Dillard West target, measuring approximately 1,400 metres by 1,200 metres, includes coincident induced polarization chargeability and copper and gold soil anomalies. Hole DI 13 - 04 returned 158.5 metres grading 0.2% Cu and 0.10 g/ t Au. Additional copper and gold intersections were reported from holes DI 13 - 03, 05 and 06

On April 8, 2014, Fjordland announced that Sumac Mines Ltd. had approved a 2014 budget and work program, estimated at $ 950,000. The programs, expected to start in early June, will include approximately 2,000 metres of trenching, 2,500 metres of diamond drilling and geological mapping and prospecting over the entire property. The Company will be the operator of the project.
