Toronto (Canada) – Seabridge Gold Inc. announced today it has received the permits from the BC Government necessary to develop an exploration adit into the large Deep Kerr Deposit at its 100%-owned KSM Project located in northwestern BC.
The proposed 2,100 meter long adit is designed to facilitate cost-effective underground exploration drilling of the Deep Kerr Deposit at depth compared to surface drilling. The adit would be collared in the Sulphurets Valley at the base of Kerr Mountain, declining at a 12 percent grade parallel to the footwall of the Kerr deposit, allowing access to mineralized zones that have only been tested to depths approximately 1,800 meters below surface. To date, all drilling at Deep Kerr has been from surface, resulting in very long holes which are slow and expensive to drill.
