The Kinskuch Lake Project is located in the Stikinia Terrane, which hosts large epithermal gold, porphyry copper/gold and VMS deposits in British Columbia. The target area lies within prospective stratigraphy, including the well documented Stuhini-Hazelton contact, an Upper Triassic-Lower Jurassic contact. The geological setting and style of mineralization of the Kinskuch Lake area is similar to the Mitchell porphyry copper-gold deposit in the Sulphurets District located approximately 100km to the northwest.
The Pretium- Brucejack epithermal/mesothermal gold deposit is closely associated with the large neighboring Seabridge Kerr, Snowfield and Mitchell (KSM) Au/Cu porphyry deposits, both hosted within the Upper-Triassic Stuhini and Lower Jurassic Hazelton rocks in the Stikinia Terrane.
