These are mines, mineral deposits and prospects in the Heath-Falcon property region.

The Heath Falcon property outline is shown in red on each map below.

Note: The lowermost analogue shown on this page is the New Afton deposit whose block cave outline has been superimposed as a "target scale" reference on all the Heath Merge target maps on this website.

Mount Milligan Porphyry Cu/Au mine

Mount Milligan is located approximately 155 kilometres northwest of Prince George in central British Columbia, Canada. The Mount Milligan Mine is a conventional truck-shovel open-pit copper and gold mine and concentrator with a 60,000 tpd capacity copper flotation processing plant.

Kwanika Porphyry Cu/Au deposit

Kwanika hosts two bulk tonnage calc-alkaline porphyry deposits, the primary Central Zone Cu-Au porphyry, and secondary South Zone Cu-Au-Mo porphyry deposit.  The Central Zone was discovered by Serengeti Resources in 2006 and features both a near surface open-pit resource, and a higher-grade underground resource that has the potential for a block cave mining.

Endako Porphyry Mo Mine

The Endako batholith is a composite batholith that consists of early foliated hornblende ± biotite diorites, intermediate-age unfoliated hornblende ± biotite diorites, and late granodiorites to monzogranites. These latter plutons host the Endako molybdenite deposit, a major porphyry deposit located in the central Canadian Cordillera. Extensive K-Ar dating on the batholith had given relatively reproducible ages centered on 140 Ma, indicating a short life span for magmatic activity. (From: Villeneuve, Mike, et al. "The Endako batholith: Episodic plutonism culminating in formation of the Endako porphyry molybdenite deposit, north-central British Columbia." Economic Geology 96.1 (2001): 171-196.)

Chuchi Porphyry Cu/Au prospect

The Chuchi Lake Project hosts the Chuchi alkalic porphyry Cu-Au system, a developed mineral prospect located in the Omineca Mining District of central British Columbia. The porphyry system lies on the southeastern margin of the Hogem intrusive suite, one of the largest Mesozoic intrusive complexes associated with porphyry mineralization in the Quesnel terrane. Mineralization at Chuchi is hosted by Early Jurassic intrusions emplaced into the Chuchi Lake succession, which consists of interlayered volcanic and sedimentary rocks.

New Afton

The red outline of the block cave shown above (ie: the current outline of economic ore) has been superimposed on a number of Redton's Heath Merge exploration maps on this website to illustrate the scale of an economic orebody in regard to the current state of exploration information at Heath Merge.

The New Afton Mine is located approximately 10 km west of Kamloops and is operated by New Gold Inc.

It is a Cu-Au alkalic porphyry deposit which is tabular, sub-vertical, southwest-plunging, and measures approximately 100 m thick by 1.5 km long by 1.5 km down plunge, remaining open at depth.

The above illustration is reproduced from Lipske, J. L., et al. "Geology and mineralization of the New Afton Cu-Au alkalic porphyry deposit, Kamloops, British Columbia." Canadian Institute of Mining, Metallurgy and Petroleum Special 57 (2020): 648-667.
