Eagle Plains Resources Pelly Mountain Project consists of 387 units located approximately 40 km south of Ross River, Yukon Territory in the Watson Lake Mining District. The FIRE (formerly the Chzerpnough), ICE (formerly the BNOB), MELT and EROS properties are located in the McConnell River / Cloutier Creek area, with the MM claims located approximately 25 kilometers south in the Seagull Creek area. The claims are owned 100% by Eagle Plains Resources Ltd.
The claims overlie Mississippian aged intermediate to felsic volcanic rocks and similar aged sediments of the Pelly Mountain Volcanic Belt (PMVB). The stratigraphy includes pyritic trachyte, pyritic lapilli tuffs, crystal tuffs, and volcaniclastic debris flows and is the host stratigraphy for at least two VMS exhalitive type base metal deposits - the MM (Eagle Plains Resources) and the Wolf (Atna Resources). Fieldwork by Eagle Plains and other operators has identified widespread areas of favorable stratigraphy and mineralization associated with Volcanogenic Massive Sulphide (VMS) deposits including extensive copper - barium - mercury - lead - zinc - silver - soil geochemical anomalies and barite - sphalerite - galena - pyrite mineralization within a pyrite altered felsic volcanic package.
