Omineca Mining and Metals Ltd. is a Canadian junior gold company with dual-track programs underway – the resumption of an underground placer gold bulk sample program and a diamond drill program focused on the discovery of the potential multiple bedrock sources of that placer gold.
The flagship Wingdam gold exploration and placer recovery project is located along the Barkerville Highway, 40 km west of Barkerville in the Cariboo Mining District of south-central BC. The Wingdam projects include hard-rock tenures totaling over 50,000 hectares (500 square km) and more than 15 linear kilometers of placer claims along the Lightning Creek valley.
With the dewatering and rehabilitation of the existing decline and underground workings underway, the company is preparing to resume bulk sample operations at the Wingdam placer recovery project where the first bulk sample in 2012 recovered 173.4 oz of placer gold from a single 2.4m wide crosscut.
Omineca’s ongoing diamond drill program to explore the potential multiple hard rock sources of the placer gold at Wingdam is fully funded and currently nearing the half-way mark of its maiden, 27-hole drilling program.
