Treaty Creek is located in British Columbia's prolific Golden Triangle; one of the richest areas of mineralization in the world with at least five world-class mining projects headed toward production. The property is adjacent to and on trend with 130 million onces of gold, 800 million ounces of silver and 20 billion pounds of copper representing one of the greatest concentrations of metal value on the planet*

Mineralization in the Treaty Creek claims area lies within the same broad hydrothermal system that generated the several deposits on the adjacent Seabridge Gold and on the Pretivm properties that lie immediately southwest of the Treaty Creek claims (Savell, 2012; Kruchkowski, 2014). Mineralization delineated on these adjacent claims blocks are world class in size, world class in extent, and will ultimately require revision of textbook descriptions for these ore deposit types.
There are just 6 other regions on earth where similar large porphyry copper systems have been delineated. The diameter of the Sulphurets system is at least 25 km; this is a measured value documented across the mapped exposure of the intensely altered, pyritized paleosurface of the hydrothermal system which is well exposed through the area……including extensive exposures on the Treaty Creek claimblock (Alldrick et al., 1988).
The same setting and same hydrothermal system found on Seabridge’s KSM and Pretivm’s Snowfield/Brucejack is shared by the geology underlying much of the area of the adjacent Treaty Creek claims. Given the limited drilling completed to date on the Treaty Creek claims it would be realistic to state that the mineral potential for the Treaty Creek claims area remains largely untested and unknown, and that the local geology is part of the same enormous hydrothermal system that hosts multiple deposits of gold and copper that are changing our knowledge of the number, size and grades of the ore deposit types that comprise a porphyry copper system.
